In loving memory of Romeo
“There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy”. ∼ Ben Williams
When building such a strong relationship with our pets, we never imagine what our lives would be like when they leave this world. They are with us every day to the point we take their happy presence completely for granted.
We had an inseparable bond, and I enjoyed seeing your smiling face 1st thing in the morning. As soon as I opened my eyes, you’d feel my energy and peek through the bedroom door. I loved you so much, and I always missed you when we were not together, which was a total of 1 week during your whole entire lifespan. What we had was unique. My best friend; I swear there was little human inside.
What I adored most about you is that no matter how tired, you were always the happiest dog on the planet and never stopped filling my heart with joy, sometimes peeing on my foot out of excitement.
As all good things come to an end, the day had come when my “unicorn” dog passed away. It was the saddest day of my life, but came with a bang literally, on 4th of July weekend. I have lost not just a pet, but a life companion.
Thankfully, I was there that day by your side, to comfort you and to experience your last breath. My heart was in agony because of the pain you must have felt, in your last attempts to inhale. As sad as that moment was, I am not angry, or in denial, because you finally are in a much better place and feel no more pain.
I know in my heart that such pure soul as yours must be in Heaven now enjoying everything that you rightfully deserve.
Where you are now, I hope that there is an endless choice of human food, durable chewy toys, and pillows to climb. I hope that you receive the daily dose of belly rubs and scratches that last infinity.
In my heart, I feel love and gratitude to have spent so much time and to have made so many unforgettable memories with you. You have made me a better person and taught me how to love unconditionally…. Thank you.
