To my dearest Little Man,
I’m not sure how to quite begin this letter, I don’t even understand how I have survived two weeks without you by my side. Here I am on your two week anniversary of crossing rainbow bridge and still trying to come to terms with you being gone. I feel so lost without you, my days just drag on without any meaning. Your dad and I miss you so very much and are just trying to function but it’s so difficult. I have so many emotions running through me. Daddy and I were looking at videos of you when you were first adopted almost five years ago, you were like a puppy! Running around so excited to go for your walk, you would run to daddy while he was eating to get some scraps and then I would be standing there with the door open ready to walk you, you could never choose between the two so you would run back and forth between the two of us trying to decide what to do. You loved your walks, those are the only times I saw you wag your tail. You had a horrible life before we adopted you and I am so angry that someone out there mistreated you and took the best years of your life away from you. I knew when we adopted you that you were old and had health issues, but it was love at first sight and I couldn’t leave the shelter that day without you. I knew I would love you, but boy did I love you. My whole life revolved around you, you were our baby and brought so my joy to our lives. When you got sick this summer we took all the time off we could to care for you and you came around you fought for us, I don’t know why you lost your fight in late September but all we had to do was look into your eyes, you had given up. On 10/1 you took a piece of our hearts with you and we will never be the same without you. We love you so much. I stood by the garden thinking of you last week and the most beautiful Blue Jay landed on the lawn and just sat there, I knew that was a sign from you that you were happy and at peace. You were such an amazing dog Little Man, I don’t understand how I can carry on without you and the pain is so real. We are trying to keep moving forward but it’s hard. I sleep with your sweater, we refuse to put your bed away, I don’t want you to think we are forgetting about you, as that is not ever possible. I love you my Little Man, I hope you are happy and healthy, free of your seizures, running around and enjoying what you missed in your puppy days. I can’t wait to see you again and I hope that you forgive me for letting you go. You not only put you paw mark in my heart but it’s in every fiber of my being and life. You will never be forgotten.
Love you so very much.
