My doggie used to live at my mom’s, now she lives in my heart.
I never understood it, the feeling of losing your pet. I knew it would be sad, but I didn’t think it would be so painful to say goodbye to her. It’s weird because there’s a difference between losing a person and losing an animal. With a person, you can tell them how much you love them, talk about the memories you have with them. When I held her for the last time, I was trying to force the love I have for her into her heart. I’m so scared that she might never know how much I loved her, since I couldn’t tell her. I remember the first day I met her, how tiny she was. I remember how she always took up the whole bed and I would let her because I hated sleeping without her. I loved how she knew when I was upset and would lay with me.
I might never meet a more gentle soul than my puppy. And I’m sad that she might never know how much I really love her. It might sound so stupid that I’m this upset over a dog, but she provided such a safe place in my life. She didn’t deserve to live such a short life but she also didn't deserve to suffer. All I can hope is that I made her life happy. I know she definitely brought happiness to mine. I love you sweet girl; I’ll keep you safe in my heart forever.
