Darling Solly, light of my life. Five months have passed since we had to say an exceptionally heartbreaking farewell.
I feel as if I am living in a paradox ... five months gone, and yet, since I lost you, there are times when it seems like a mere five minutes. The pain is still heavy, my darling boy, hanging around me like a depressing black shroud. I am sure you have been keeping up with what is going on in my world without the physicality of you. I am moving on. This house, which is no longer a home, is devoid of life, has no soul. Despite having two cats whom I love dearly, there is no you. There is no Gonzo, and there is no Daisy. It's time, my beautiful boy. Time to tread in fresh fields and pastures new. But, of course, Solly, you will be eternally in my heart and forever by my side. The picture below sums it up.
There is never a day goes by that I don't think about you. An unforgettable faithful best friend. Loyal, devoted, true. You are always in my head in one way or another. I could never forget such a wonder as you. I will never forget. You will be with me until I gasp my last breath. You will be waiting for me ... you and all those other delightful furangels who have gone on before. A reunion of unadulterated pure joy.
Time may pass, but memories never fade. You are enveloped in my heart and soul. You always will be. You were, are, and always will be, my canine soul mate. Together, we still walk. As friends and soul mates, we still blend. You knew how to wrap yourself around my heart, Solly, buried yourself deep inside and there you will stay. The tears I cry, and the ache I feel, is testament to how much you are loved, Solly. Living without you is more than I can bear at times. It staggers me how much I miss you. Your physical presence was a gift from God and I thank you for choosing me to spend your life with. How lucky I was the day you chose me. How fortunate to be unconditionally loved by such a fabulous, breathtakingly handsome German Shepherd with an abundance of wonderful traits, and a character and charm second to none! Solly, you brought such joy into my life. You enriched my world. There will never be another like you; to me you are the perfect dog. You are a true gent, such a marvellous four-legged friend and companion. I will cherish and treasure you for the rest of my days.
My wondrous furangel, wait for me and boy, we will have such fun when we are together again. I long to look into those adorable brown eyes and hug you, my big bear. Look after Gonzo, Daisy and my other felines whom you never met on this earthly plane. Run free with your new friends at the Bridge and give them all a snuggle and kiss from me. My own dog star, I love and miss you so. Solomon (solly)
