Losing a pet…

She not there in the morning to greet when you wake up, she usually be there wagging her tail, her tongue hanging out all excited and needing to go out for a pee.

Or when your having your dinner she give you the puppy eyes and the floor is soaking from her drooling,
Or having left over food and she not there to give it to her, She loved tea but she’s not there to drink the ends of your tea.

When you felt down or upset she knew, she would sit on top of me licking me wagging her tale wanting me to play with her, this was her way of comforting me, I would cuddle her like she was a baby, she would just lie beside me and then rolling on her back wanting a belly rub.

Coming home from school knowing she won’t be there, it is hard coming in the garden not seeing her looking out the window for me. The excitement in her face when she spots me coming in the front door puts a smile on my face.

Even when I’m at home alone and the house is so quite I still try listen out for her footsteps of her walking round the house or her growling at the dogs in the garden.

I’m heartbroken I lost my best friend I loved her so much, my home is now empty, lonely and quite now that she gone. She wasn’t a pet, she was a friend, a family member, she was the best dog anyone could ask for and now she in a better place and not in any more pain.

  1. You lost a piece of you , days of you which you thought you would have spent with her, if they came. You felt as of she stole some of the warmth you could offer as a human. You will always feel a void like a lump in throat.
