My Sweet Mitzi

Dear Mitzi,

I looked into your eyes today and said the words of comfort that I wanted you to hear last.

You came in the form of a dog, but you were much bigger than that. You were a vehicle of strength, devotion, gentleness and unconditional love.

I feel like the time you needed me most I failed you. I'm so sorry that I had to put you to sleep. I wanted to always be the hand that only touched you with the degree of love you have always shown me.

I can feel you with me still. I got off the couch and moved my legs automatically so I wouldn't step on you. The house feels empty without you.

Who will I go on our rides with. You took such childlike joy in such simple moments.

You were my greatest listening ear. Always patient and loving. Thank you for choosing me as your mommy. My dear sweet baby and friend.

Rest gently, my sweet Mitzi. I will miss you.
