“Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.”
― Dean Koontz
On Monday, we said goodbye and released you from the pain and suffering that degenerated your strong body in the last six months.
Now that you’re gone, there’s an unbearable emptiness in our home and in our hearts that no other being will be able to fill. You were the most loyal, loving and intuitive companion. I still wonder what we did to deserve your dignity, intelligence and patience.
You were by my side and gave me comfort during some of the most difficult times of my life. You embodied all the wonderful memories of the years when we had a house full of kids, chaos and laughter.
Fifteen years with you just weren’t enough. I will carry you in my heart always, dearest Flirt.
