It's been two years since my childhood friend left this world for a better one.
She was always so loyal and stuck by me, even at times when I wasn't so pleasant to be around. As a kid I sometimes had a temper and would yell at her when I was frustrated. She never held it against me. She loved me, she understood. She forgave so easily. She trusted me.
I remember how she used to lie down behind the couch. When she'd pant, the whole couch would shake. She used to try to hide anywhere closest to me during thunderstorms. She did things like bury her food on top of a flower pot instead of in it, because she knew she'd get in trouble for digging there. She even tried to "pet" me once. She reached out with her paw and as I remember tried to place it on my head.
She was a better "person" than a great deal of people out there.
It may be just a sentiment, but I like the idea that her spirit lives in me now. She always readily forgave those she loved, and she was the most loyal creature I've ever known personally. Isn't that something I can learn from? I won't let it go to waste.
Within the last year one of my grandparents and my stepdad also left this world. I don't know if dogs go to heaven or not, but I don't see why they wouldn't. I can picture Cookie up there with them now.

Dogs go everywhere Sweetie.. never doubt that.
Know that Cookie came to teach you life lessons.. and it sounds as if she was a good teacher.. you are doing her proud.
I am so sorry for your losses.. I too lost those I loved at an early age.
But.. they never truely leave us..NONE of them. Cookie is in your heart as are the humans you love... nothing changes that... EVER
To live in the hearts of those we love is not to die.
