Spunky, You Will Always Have My Heart
Such a beautiful face, Spunky

Spunky shortly after adopted-4 mos. old
I went to the shelter looking for a dog to help me get over the loss of one of my 2 sister dogs in 1997. Spunky picked me, playing with her sisters and then coming to sit by me.
After a few disciplinary things, you turned into the dog I had always dreamed of having. You knew because of my pain I couldn't do a lot of things.
You just seemed to sense what I needed. Picking up things I dropped, learning to walk off leash and coming to me when I called, never venturing on the road, never chasing deer or rabbits, mostly you just always wanted to stay at my side.
We had 15 years together and it went too fast. It's been since Oct 2012, and I still cry for you. I miss you so much my heart hurts. You were THE perfect dog for me, and Angel & I miss you something fierce. Angel learned well from you, my dear friend.
Every day I look at a spot you laid in or on the couch behind me where I watch tv. I wish I could reach over and cradle that big old head again and kiss your soft head. I love you so much, Spunky, and always will.
They say not to play faves, but there was just something about you. I could see so much wisdom and love in your eyes. I will remember and love you til I draw my last breath.
I hope then we can be together forever with no pain or fear of death. I love you my sweetheart. You were my heart. Now Angel is stepping up to do what you did; love me like crazy as you did. She reminds me of you in some things.
Til our souls meet again, I love you, Spunky, always. I will never forget you. You have a piece of my heart that no other soul can ever take. That horrible last day, when I held you as the vet injected you and you fought it by pushing upwards towards me, as if saying, please don't let me go, it haunts me still.
God do I miss you, my babe. It is a moment that has haunted me ever since. Forever you will hold my heart, Spunky. Missing you every day....
