No words can convey the loss of my best friend.
He trusted, he loved, he cherished and he howled.
He brought peace and comfort.
He gave of himself fully without being guarded.
He had the soul of a child, up to his old age, up to the end.
He believed that I would always take care of him,
and I did.
The day you left made my soul scream in pain,
but I did it for you. I did it for you.
I breathe you in without seeing or hearing you.
You could never be replaced. Never.
Your paw print rests in my heart and on my soul.
I’ll never be the same without you, and I thank you
for rescuing me that beautiful day at the shelter.
