Dear Master,


I just wanted to tell you how much I love you. You are my world. Actually, I suppose it’s more appropriate to say that you are my sun since you’re the center of my existence. Everything in my relatively short life revolves around you. You are the giver of all good things – food, water, toys, affection, health care, and a soft bed. And speaking of food, what a great hunter you are! You singlehandedly bring home all kinds of goodies. In fact, I never go hungry.


I don’t mean to criticize, and please forgive me, but I wish you spent more time with me. I’m here alone for long hours, just waiting for you to return from that place you go to almost every day. I listen eagerly for the sound of your footsteps on the porch every afternoon. When you come in and brush right past me, my heart dies a little. Remember, you have friends, books, magazines, TV, movies, music, and video games, but I have only you. Please keep this in mind the next time I nuzzle you for a pat on the head or a belly rub and you ignore me.


Even worse than being ignored is when you scold me. You get so angry when I have an accident on the rug. But sometimes I can’t help it. You’re not always here to let me out when I need to go. I hold it as long as I can…


Could you maybe think about getting me a brother or sister to keep me company while you’re away from home? I know pups are a lot of trouble, but you could always get an older furkid from the animal shelter. I promise that I’ll help teach him the ropes and make him behave.


Master, there’s one more thing I want you to understand. When I get old and sick and am in constant pain, and the light has gone out of my eyes, please do the right thing. You’ll know when it’s time. Just promise to stay with me until the very end. And I’ll promise to wait for you at the RainbowBridge. Then we can be together again, to run and frolic in green fields and trek through shadowed forests, forever.


Love always,


Your dog
