IT IS NOT HOW LONG THE FLOWER BLOOMS BUT HOW BEAUTIFULLY

My Dearest Little Boo Dog ...

From the first time I held you as a little ball of black fluff, 
I knew that my life had changed forever.  I was so excited about what
the future held and how you would share it with me.

From your black, wet nose to the tip of your stubby tail,
you were God's perfect creation.

In the short time you were here, you blessed my life in ways that I
never knew were possible.  You shared love, companionship and joy.
You made me feel like I was the most special human here on earth 
and for that, I am ever grateful.

Only those who have loved deeply and shared their lives with a dog,
understand the loss and pain we feel when 
we have to bid farewell to them...
... it never gets easier. 

You never judged me, disappointed me, ignored me or hurt me.
You were the one constant love in my life
and you took a part of me when you left
... I will never ever be the same.

I miss hearing you breathe during the night.
I miss the warmth from your little body when I held you.
I miss you watching me prepare food and always being ready to catch falling crumbs.
I miss your excitement when it was time to walk to the mailbox.
I miss our quiet times, sitting on the deck and watching the birds.
I miss you greeting me at the door when I come home.
I miss you cuddled up beside me, watching TV at night.
I miss you patiently waiting for me to share my breakfast banana.
I miss your sweet puppy kisses.

My life was indeed blessed to have had you share yours with me.
You left this world far too soon.

Adieu my precious LILY ♥
