furry little friend of fifteen years. I knew the day would come, so I prayed for strength and peace when the time came, but little did I know when I woke up today, I would be putting my best friend down.
You were the second child I never had; my beloved little companion. You were my shadow, my comfort, and my pillow. You knew when I was happy and you knew when I was sad. You shared in my joy and you shared in my pain.
You always greeted me with your dirty little red ball putting a smile on my face and never showed me your pain even when in silence you suffered. Oh how I have learned from you my furry little friend.
You showed me unconditional love, even when I showed you no patience. You showed me strength and courage when you battled your cancer and painful surgeries. You showed me how to keep going even when things did not look good. You taught me so many valuable things in life.
Now who is going to wait for me eagerly by the fence, waiting for my car to pull up the driveway? Who is going to keep me company waiting while I shower, and who is going to lie at my feet when I am resting in my recliner?
My heart is ripped to shreds at losing you. You've stolen my heart and taken it with you my loving little Poppy, but I know you are in a better place where there will be no more pain and suffering for you. I know you are in heaven because I asked God to keep you. And keep you He will until I get there.
We miss you my dear Poppy, my beloved sweet baby. There will be no other like you. What a wonderful friend God sent to me.
