To people who do not have pets or allow themselves to connect emotionally with another creature, for the short space of time we have on this spinning rock that is hurtling through eternity.
This post is not for you.
It is just a short message saying that even though you are not walking by my side anymore, you will always be in my heart.
I may have hung your lead and collar up for the last time, but the walks we have taken over the many years of your life will never leave me.
It was not always easy having a smelly, stubborn, moody, noise but loving best friend like you, but we will always make exceptions for love and happiness, which you brought into my life every day.
You arrived shortly after the beginning of my relationship with my wife, you came to my wedding as a brides maid, you were there when I brought home my son into the pack, you were there when we moved house, you were there when I brought home my daughter as well and you were there when we got Maizy someone who helped give you a new (if not short lived) lease of life.
Now that you are not here with us, it has left an emptiness that I am sure our family will fill with happiness and love in the future, but there will always be a part of my heart taken way with you on your next walk through eternity…
