Dearly missed by mom, Stephanie

 I have wanted to get a dog all my life but for various reasons it never seemed to be a good time to get one. I had all these images in my mind what my perfect dog would be like. When the opportunity came and I made the final decision to pick a dog, I picked you. You were actually not what I imagined as that perfect dog I wanted, but I choose you anyways.

How soon I found out that you are actually the perfect fit for me. I loved everything from your slightly crooked nose to your funny docked tail. I love how you give absolutely no reaction when the cat whacks you on the nose. I loved how you sneak up on the bed when you think I am asleep and wouldn’t notice. Whenever someone comments on what a beautiful dog you are and how wonderfully calm you behave I feel like the proudest parent in the world.

We only had such short time together. Little did I realize how much I became dependent on your love and companionship. You left me so suddenly and without explanation I still find it hard to believe that you will no longer come greet me at the door when I come home, and I will no longer hear your enthusiastic whine when I open a jar of peanut butter.

I am glad I got to be your mom for the last year of your life. You are my perfect dog.

Love, “Mom” Stefanie
