You were loved by all and will be missed by many!!!!
This is for those who have gone on, and those who stayed behind to soften the hurt, and give their love.
I can still feel the soft velvet of your paw, the tickle of your breath, that warm tongue as you decided I needed a bath. I miss the gentle rumble of your snore, the comfort of snuggle times, the silkiness of your fur. I know you've come back on occasion; I can feel you. Are you waiting for someone? Or have you come back to let me know everyone's okay? Once in a while, I find a picture of you by accident, and then remember how you always made me smile, that you loved your ball, and the dog park was your idea of heaven. Sometimes, I forget you're not here and call another dog by your name. They look at me, astounded, that I could make such a mistake. I feel the tears start, and I try to tell myself that you're okay. Yes, I say, there are warm breezes, sunshine, butterflies, and green grass where you are. The others are there with you, so you're not alone, wondering and wandering around. I can still feel your coat, soft as bunny fur, under my fingers. I know God holds you in his hand. You offered me your devotion and love. How could I not accept so precious a gift?
My precious fur angels! If I could, I would reverse time, so we could once again share the happiness and love. Your face is as clear to me as if it were yesterday and you were here, asking for dinner and demanding to be petted. You brought light, life and joy to me. I cherish the memories of your love and trust. Every spring and summer, the sadness is softened by the beauty that blooms. As I look out my windows, I am reminded of you. My dear little friend, know that I keep you in my heart. As long as I remember your name, you will never be forgotten, or replaced. One day, we will all be together in the sunshine, warm breezes, and green meadows. Until that time, you are missed....and loved....always loved.
