It's been over two years since that horrid cancer took you away and I still miss you so much. Your collar and lead were only recently put away when Nicholas moved in.
You would have loved Nick. He is just a big bouncy boxer boofhead, not the dignified girl you were.
I thought you had so much to learn when I first picked you up as a puppy all those years ago, but I soon realised you had more to teach me.
Our last day together was not what I had planned, but your diagnosis was uncovered with only hours to spare. I knew deep inside all was not well, but your stoicism gave nothing away. A true boxer.
I am so glad that I was with you to help you at your time of greatest need. It was an honour to hold you as you went home. Your burden was lifted and your dignity retained. I couldn't have asked for more.
After all this time, your blankets still have your smell, and when I hold them near, you are with me. I can't wait to see you again - meet you at the bridge.
