It has been exactly seven months since I said goodbye to my darling precious staffy and my heart still aches. As I write this, I think about all the times in my life when Lizzie, my best friend for over 14 years, was there to comfort me. How she would just know when I was upset and would come sit by me. I can only describe her presence as something magical.
I adopted two rescue puppies and they have helped me to heal a lot. After months of feeling broken and alone, its been nice to have something to love and care for again.
I am so grateful for these dogs. They have given me the opportunity to feel happy again. To not feel so empty. I just love coming home to two wagging tails and being woken up in the morning by wet slobbery kisses on my face. Giving my puppies a happy and loving home is truly a gift.
But they are not Lizzie- and I don't expect them to be. She will always have a special place in my heart. I think about her constantly and wish that I could just bring her back. It is devastating to talk about her in the past tense but I know that when I think and talk about her I am honoring her memory. I simply cannot ever forget about this spectacular soul.
Lizzie, my love for you will never die. You were an absolute blessing in my life and I will always cherish all the memories that I have of you. I promise to try and be happy because that is what you would want. Thank you my sweet love x
