Mellie, trying to fit in the cat's bed

It will be 2 years since I said goodbye to you. It still hurts!

Your collar and lead still hang on their peg, and always will. I found a stone the other day. It was shaped like a heart. I put it on your box.

You live in my heart. I think of you often on those long walks through our valley that you so loved and how, following behind, I memorized that little marking of color that ran up your back, and how your back leg turned in a little bit.

Your love was there for all to see. I could not have found a more loyal and loving friend. I will see you again, of that I am sure. My love follows you.

Remember to listen for my whistle.

A very nice tribute. I don't think the pain ever really goes away completely, but can be overshadowed by good memories, of which you have many.
