You were my angel, my soulmate, my love, my life, my everything. When I first cuddled you, I felt nothing but sheer happiness! Nothing could bring me down that day. I can still remember the warm puppy kisses on my cheek, and the deep, but soft scent of your milky puppy-breath. You slept in my bed from day one, and I still had to mix milk into your puppy food, which later in life became a real treat for you!
We went through some tough times together, but held eachother up through and through. We were best friends! When your first birthday rolled around, you were showered in toys, treats, and anything special anyone could think of!! We went on long walks together, and often raced down the old country roads side by side! When one of us slowed, the other did. We ran as one, racing down that stretch of gravel as fast as we could. We werent dog and human, we were the wind!! We were as fast as lightning, and at the end of the day, we'd sit om the old swing, on our deck, and watch the sun descend over the cornfield.
The last time I saw you, my heart was wrenched in utter, complete despair. I hoped, prayed, that I’d see you again. That this was just one nasty nightmare gone devastatingly wrong. That nightmare was sadly, reality. I gazed into your deep, soulful brown eyes, and spoke. “Dallas, I love you. Don’t you ever, ever forget that.” With a wag of your tail, I embraced you. Took you up in my arms, never wanting to let go. I loved you. I still love you. As I looked into those eyes that I had known, everyday of my life for the past year and a half, I could see that you loved me back. My eyes welled up into massive tears, which repeatedly rolled down my cheek onto your soft, glossy fur. I stroked your head, as I could feel my heart sinking lower and lower in misery. I never wanted to let you go. You were the best friend I’ve ever had, and will know. From the time we first met, it was love at first sight. When they took you away from me, I felt my heart burst into an infinite amount of pieces, never to be repaired. When you died, a part of me went with you.
In Memory of Dallas, 10/18/02 – 8/16/04
