To My Buddy...

(St-Sulpice, QC, Canada)

You came in my life almost 15 years ago. We learned to know each other, and I have to say, years went by so nicely together. Every day was a pleasure from the moment I opened my eyes to the time we had to go to bed. You were there, with me, happy to be my dog, and me happy to have you as my best friend. Almost 15 years in someone's life is a significant thing.

We walked, played and shared our life all that time. When I came back from work, you were there waiting for me in the living room window. Seeing you justified why I wanted to leave work and head straight back home to spend my evenings with you. You were always happy, giving me the warmest welcome one could ever expect.

I saw you getting old, and we were together, not worrying about future. Every day was a happy day with you. You were simply the perfect dog for me.

Sometimes, I was secretly crying knowing you would not be with me forever. But I took good care of you so we could be together as long as possible. Slowly, you started to show sign you were tired... Your hair became gray, your paws were hurting. We could not walk as long as we used to... But you were there and still wagging your tail.

One day, we both knew it was the end. I was with you until your last breath and I held you and stayed with you. Since that day, my days are not the same. When I come from work, I don’t see you in my living room window anymore. I open the door and all I hear is silence.

I miss you so much, Buddy... I’m so sad without you... My life is not the same. You’re in my heart, my thoughts and every day I'm still talking to you. I hope one day, we'll be together again... Will we?

You were my best friend, and I still love you very much. Now, rest in peace, but please don't forget our time together. You were an amazing dog.

So Sad for You
by: Ruwani

I feel your sadness so much. But you had a good time together. It is so hard to come to terms when a pet is taken away, but think of the good times you had.
