There's only so much we can teach our dogs... Sit! Stay! Shake! and if you're lucky you might be able to teach them to sing happy birthday.
It is what THEY teach US that is really impressive... In 11 and a half years I have learnt so much from my Zoe.
She taught me that the world truly is a beautiful place, you just have to slow down to see it.
She taught me how to love someone else more than i love myself.
She taught me the power of a hug.
She taught me how to be comfortable in silence...that word are just just that.
She taught me that it doesn't matter how people look on the outside.
She taught me how to trust.
She taught me that you don't earn respect by fighting for it, but by giving it.
She taught me how to be strong for me.
She taught me how to be strong to save my loved ones from pain.
She taught me that you don't have to please everyone.
She taught me to give my heart to a selct few, but to give it fully.
She taught me that you only have to touch one other life to make a difference in this world.
She taught me the importance of family.
And she taught me that family has nothing to do with the blood that runs through your veins.
On December 25, 1994 my parents told me they hid my present and to get it i'd have to search high and low. I found this little bundle of joy standing in my room like she knew i was coming. It didn't take me more than a split second to fall in love with her. We grew up together. That little yellow Labrador turned out to be my best friend, my family, my baby, my rock, my teacher, and my sanctuary all rolled into one. One day our neighbour saw us swimming together and later told me that it was amazing to watch us...it was like she was my soul mate. I never believed in soul mates but i think that he couldnt have been more right.
On June 25, 2006 late in the night, I lost my soul mate.
I wasn't with her. She wouldn't allow me to see her go...to put me through that pain. For 2 weeks i stayed by her side, and she fought. She fought her kidney failure...for me. It was exactly one week after i left that she decided it was time for her to leave this world.
Even now that she's gone she's still teaching me- - teaching me how to let go; how to be strong for the other people in my life; how losing someone physically doesnt mean we ever have to lose them or what they have taught us; how true love never fades away.
I am sad, to say the least, that i lost her but more than anything I am so happy and so grateful that i ever found her and had the great fortune of sharing my life with her.
The pictures were taken exactly one week before she left us. She was beautiful right to the very end.
In loving memory of the most amazing girl I've ever known - Zoe.
