It's been 5 weeks since you crossed over to Rainbow Bridge. Not sure how I made it this far without you. For 14 years you showed me unconditional love and friendship like no other. You gave my life purpose you were my best friend, my child, my security and all you asked for in return was a little love from me. My heart dog.
I remember picking you up at 8 weeks old and the women taking our photo together before bringing you home you were a fluff of fur looked like a stuffed animal with the biggest brown eyes that everyone complemented on. You were a handful as a puppy getting into mischief but you kept me on my toes I brought you everywhere. Your little bark and whines all day and all night oh how I miss that but I will remember them for as long as I live. You chewed up the linoleum at the front door not sure what you were after for a little dog you sure could rip things up but it's a good thing uncle Tony owned the building we lived in at the time.
You were always so excited to see me and everyone else when they came to visit and I was just as excited to see you. We enjoyed so much together Ozzie watching tv hanging out going for walks and car rides even when you slept all day I knew you were there and I was content with that. Lying on my clothes waiting for me to get out of the shower following all over the house while I cleaned or did laundry hanging out outside on the deck you in the shade me in the sun playing catch going to the hairdresser going through the grocery bags when I came home from shopping looking for a treat in the bag barking at everyone walking down the street saying hey look at me your snoring your cuddling you running so fast up and down the hallway thank you Ozzie for making my life so happy. You loved it when I opened a bag of chips you were right there waiting for a treat as you got older you didn't hear the chip bag but you had a nose like a hound dog.
I can go on and on about our time together Ozzie. When you closed your eyes and slipped into eternity a part of me went with you. I will never get over it I just have to get through It, it doesn't get better it gets different I will be whole again but I will never be the same nor will I want to. The saddest part is life has to go on. I have to use what you taught me and what you have provided me with for 14 years. I will always grieve as you were always much more than just a dog to me. I will take all the time I need. I will hold on to the love not the loss with every beat of my heart. I promise I will get there I know you would want this. Our story wasn't finished yet Ozzie.
Thank you Ozzie for allowing me to have grown old with you thank you for all our sweet memories thank you for being a part of my life thank you for your unconditional love and most of all thank you for leaving pawprints on my heart. We live as long as we are remembered and you my friend will never be forgotten.
Always and forever I love you my Ozzie angel
