Willy, I Miss You

Willy, I miss you so much, and it has only been a day. I can't believe my mom and I had to make the decision of putting you down. I never thought that day would come and I was hoping it wouldn't.

I can't get you out of my head. I keep on seeing you laying on that blanket, lifeless. It feels like a dream, like it didn't happen. I wish it was a dream but sadly it's not.

Willy, it was a great 15 years. You have been with me ever since the day I was born. I look at those pictures of mom holding me in her arms and you laying on her lap. You went through everything with me and my mom. I'm so lucky that you were in our lives. I couldn't ask for a better dog.

I know you're not in pain anymore. It killed me to see you those last few days, just turning in circles because you were losing your mind.

I hope heaven is nice. Now you'll get to see Puglsey, Austin, and Sadie. I'll see you up there when my time comes.

I am so sorry, Willy, for treating you badly those last 2 months. It wasn't your fault. I should have had more patience. I'm so mad at myself, I'm so deeply sorry.

Lucy misses you so much, she's depressed without you here. She doesn't get excited for treats and she doesn't even bark anymore when a car pulls in the driveway. She knows you love her even though you went after her sometimes.

This house is so different without you here, it will take someone time for me and mom to get used to you not following us around.

Willy, I miss you so much. I wish you were still here with us. I love you, boobie! I miss calling you that.

Love, Shyanne

I understand how you feel completely. Losing our pets is so painful. I just had to make the decision to put my dog to sleep a week ago.

I still feel like he will be here when I get home, and I still picture his face as he lay on his blanket.

Please know that you are not alone in your grief.
