Hello my boy, it's a really nice day today, overcast and nice and cool. Our kind of day to run and play, well you did the running, but we both did the playing.

This morning the bedroom door was open, I looked out and saw one of the cats tearing past closely followed by Molly hot on her heels. I don't remember you being as naughty as Molly, well perhaps a little when you were a puppy, like biting feet with your sharp needle teeth, or grabbing hold of my trouser leg bottoms and pulling. But that cute look on your face, I could never be angry with you, you only had to look at me and my heart melted.

I still laugh at the time when Lady Zara's puppies chased you around the property, I saw you running hell for leather past the wood pile, then a couple seconds later all five of the puppies hot on your trail. It was so funny to watch. I really loved the way you were so patient with the puppies, you were never angry with them or snapped, even when they were nipping you with their sharp needle teeth. You would look at me with almost pleading eyes, "Get these pups off of me Dad." You really are a wonderful boy Merlin, how could I not be so proud of you?

Time to go play Merlin my boy

I love you Merlin, now and forever

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my wonderful boy.

It's a lovely day today Merlin, overcast and not too hot.

Remember how jealous Spud use to get when I was giving you a cuddle. You would growl at him to go away. I had to cuddle both of you at the same time. Even when you were grumpy you made me smile.

Remember one night you were grumpier then usual and I told you to get out of the bedroom? Oh boy, the look you gave me. I did laugh, you were so annoyed. I could never stay annoyed with you for long my boy and neither could you be annoyed with me for long. We'd have a cuddle and forgive each other. That's what best friends do my boy and you are the best friend I have ever had. You always seemed to know when things were not right for me, you always showed me how much you love me Merlin, that's a gift beyond value and something I will treasure forever.

Little Molly crawled up onto my lap last night and wanted a cuddle, she wants cuddles just like you always wanted. I cannot refuse her, like I could never refuse you. Don't worry my boy, as I keep telling you she is not replacing you. You have that space in my heart and soul that no other doggie will ever take over.

I love you so much Merlin

Now go play and enjoy yourself.

Your ever loving Daddy

 

Good morning my wonderful boy.

Hello my lovely boy.

I was thinking this morning of the time my daughter Melissa put a energy drink bottle on the floor and went to her bedroom to get something. You walked past, sniffed the mouth piece and licked the mouth piece clean. Melissa came back and you wandered off, Melissa picked up her drink and began drinking before we could stop her. Me and your mum nearly fell over laughing. Melissa asked why we were laughing, when we told her she wasn't too pleased, especially if I said "WOOF" to her. I still laugh about that. You always did something that made me laugh Merlin, I am sure you had a sense of humour, and little Molly is so much like you my boy. With her around there is no danger of anyone forgetting you my boy.

It's pretty hot today outside Merlin, Bella, Hobo and Spud are sitting and laying in the shade of the trees. Not a nice day to go running around in. I took Molly out for a little bit of lead/leash training, she had a bit of a play then decided it was too hot and wanted to come inside. She's laying by my feet right now. we have also discovered that Molly loves English tea, just like you did. She tries to drink mine!

Time to go play my wonderful boy

I love you Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

It's a lovely day here today Merlin, the type of day you loved.

When mum left to go to work, Spud ran out of the front door closely followed by Molly. All she wants to do is play, but Bella, Spud and Hobo won't play with her. Its so sad to see her little face as if she's saying, "Aww play with me." Then Spud tried to bully Bella, and as you know Bella is the boss and she wasn't having any of it, she saw Spud off in no uncertain terms. Wait till Molly gets bigger, Spud will have her to run and chase with, just as you a Spud did. Molly stole a special stick off of Hobo, he wasn't at all put out, I was surprised.

Remember how you use to aggravate Bella when you were a puppy, she use to get so annoyed with you but she never turned nasty with you. She's a good old girl.

For some reason Spud has taken a dislike to Zoe, Melissa's cat. Its a good job Zoe is fast on her feet.

We have lost two cats recently Merlin, Peaches and Tigger. I have no idea how they died, possibly snakes got them. When you use to run on the property I use to watch you like a hawk in case there were snakes around. I have to watch Molly now as well, she is so nosey. I took her to your hill by the fence yesterday my boy. She laid down and watched the children next door. I bet she wanted to go play with them. I said to her, "This is Merlin's hill, but I am sure he wont mind if you claim it when your bigger." She really seemed to understand Merlin.

Time to go play my lovely boy.

I'm sorry about yesterday my boy, I was a bit down.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning my lovely boy.

I see your picture every morning Merlin, I still cannot completely grasp that you have crossed the bridge, I keep expecting you to walk into my study to say hello. To say I miss you is an understatement, and to be honest I don't know if I will ever get over this grief that you left me my boy, and that you are no longer my my side. It is so hard for me Merlin, I cannot help it as I love you so much my boy, I miss your little antics, I miss your proud, noble and handsome face, I miss you coming up to me for a cuddle. Sorry my boy, I need to be strong until we meet again. To me you are the best boy in the whole wide world and you always will be. I have so many regrets Merlin, I regret not playing with you more, or walking with you more around the property or just cuddling you more. I will regret those till the day I die. I'm sorry my boy, I wish I had done far more with you then I did.

I remember how pleased you were when our human family came home from work or from the shops, you were always there to greet them and say hello. I remember how you loved to play with Mike my human son. You are so special Merlin, so very special.

Go play my boy and have some fun.

I love you Merlin, I always will.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning my boy, I hope you had a good nights sleep and a great breakfast.

Remember how my son Mike use to tease you by tickling the fur between your toes. You would pull your paw away then after a few times you would show your teeth and pretend to bite, then you would look at me as if to say, "Please don't let him tease me Daddy." You always were so sweet Merlin and so loving.

Talking to you here Merlin really makes me feel closer to you. Yesterday I was walking little Molly when I looked at the path you made to the fence, I keep expecting to see you there, when I would call you and you would come running towards me with such a happy face, as if to say "Yes Daddy?" I couldn't help it Merlin, a tear ran down my cheek. I do miss you so much my beautiful boy. Honestly Merlin I do try not to be sad, but I love you so much, right from the day I met you for the first time. You will always be that "once in a lifetime boy."

Little Molly does help a lot Merlin to ease the pain of you leaving me, as I keep saying that she is so much like you and she even looks like you. She is asleep at my feet right now. She is sweet just like you, she also loves a cuddle just like you do. I think she will do well, after all she is in your memory.

Time to go play my boy.
I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy

P.S. My back pain has almost gone now.

Good morning my amazing boy.

I love talking to you so much, I hope you don't get bored with me. When Melissa's baby arrives my boy, I may not be here for a couple of days. Not that I will be putting the new baby before you my boy, that's not going to happen, but I could be busy for a few days.

I have always said "I didn't adopt Merlin, he adopted me, I don't own Merlin, he own's me, he's not my pet, I am his."

I remember that first day I saw you my boy, you came running up then sat at my feet looking up at me, I picked you up and we looked into each others eyes, I knew right there and then we were destined to be together my boy. I said to the human, "This is the one and his name is Merlin." You was actually meant to be Melissa's boy, but you and I bonded right from the start. There was something about you my boy that I can never put my finger on, something so special and wonderful. I watched you grow from a tiny ball of fluff, to a gangling youth with long legs and huge ears to such a handsome adult. I remember looking into your beautiful eyes, they were burning into my heart and my soul. I do miss you so much my boy.

I love you Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my boy.

I was looking at your picture and remembered the day I took it. I downloaded it immediately and used it on my computer at home and at work as a screen back ground. One day a friend came into work and saw your picture on my computer and remarked "What a beautiful German Shepherd." My chest swelled with pride close to bursting and I replied, "That's my boy Merlin."

I must have hundreds of photographs of you my boy, one day I will print the best ones and frame them. I can't at the moment Merlin, it's all too raw. The grief I felt is easing my boy, but at times I can't help but miss you so much that my eyes well up with tears and blinding me. I know you don't want me to be sad Merlin, but I love you so much and I miss you so much my boy. I do try to be brave for you. I know I've also got to be strong for little Molly, but at times it is so hard my boy.

Melissa is moving back in the house officially today, she's moving out of her flat. Somehow I have got to control Bella, Hobo and Spud and put them somewhere out of the way.

Time to go play and have some fun my wonderful boy.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Hello my big amazing boy.

I look at your photographs when you were a baby and as you were growing up. You went from "pretty boy" to "Extremely Handsome," or "What a beautiful boy."

Molly is taking after you in another way, she snores just like you did! She's asleep at my feet right now and snoring like an old man, well like me.

She's been so mischievous this morning, she's chased one of the cats, when I told her off she looked at me all innocent. Then she began attacking the mop. Mum had just finished moping the floor when Molly got it into her head to start running around, when she couldn't get traction and sliding all over the place because of the wet floor, she began barking. I was nearly falling over laughing. Mike my son said to me yesterday that he doesn't remember you my boy being so mischievous. You were a little naughty at times, but nothing like Molly. She is very cute and she knows it, she uses it to her advantage, I'm sure she does.

Do you remember how you use to come into my study, nudge my arm for a cuddle? I'd give you a huge cuddle and tell you, "I love you Merlin." You would lay down under my desk until I got up from my chair and follow me. It was so wonderful having you as my shadow. If I sat on the floor you would come up and sit with me. Merlin I couldn't have wished for a better loyal and devoted friend then you. When my children remember me after I am gone I hope they remember you by my side, that is where you always were and that's where you belonged. Merlin you ARE MY boy, our bond could never be broken. We are apart now my boy, but one day when my time comes we will be reunited. What a day that will be my boy, I wont have the pain I have now and we can run and run and run together. We will have so much fun together Merlin.

Time to go play Merlin, go and enjoy yourself.

I love you so much my boy and I miss you so much I ache to cuddle you again.

You ever loving Daddy
