Farewell mon petit chiot.
I loved you from the instant I met you when you placed your long nose on my lap and looked up at me so intently with those eyes that said "I'm yours." There is so much I want to say about your life, your vibrancy, your sweetness, your longing to please and sometimes your deviousness. Your capacity for empathy is unmatched as is your unconditional love. I have a notebook full of anecdotes and tidbits of your life that I have jotted down as you grew older but right now all I can say is that I love you and miss you and no matter how far away I moved, you have always been so very close to my heart for getting me through the roughest time of my life. You will continue to remain with me always.
Until we meet again I hope you have plenty of meadows to run through, sheep to corral, moose to flush from the willows, frisbees to catch, bones to devour, lakes to swim in and most of all - heaps and heaps of spaghetti.
