Marvin, my wizard friend

A couple years ago

In 2003, when I was in 3rd grade, my mom gave me Marvin and his brother Peyton as a Christmas present. I was the happiest girl alive and they were mine. Peyton sadly died of a heart murmur when he was just a puppy and I remember being devastated over the loss then...Nothing would prepare me for when I had to lose Marvin. My best friend for nearly 14 years. He survived tumors and living with three legs the last year and 9 months of his life. He was so intelligent and quirky. He had the sweetest, big brown eyes that just poured with love. Growing up, I made music videos with him and trained him to do all sorts of tricks and to jump agility courses I made in the backyard. We rolled around in the grass together, went on road trips, and cuddled a lot. He was like a brother to me, especially for an only child. It's been 3 days since I held your head in my hands in your final moments. You were so weak from having two seizures that day, I could see in your eyes how tired you were. I knew it was time and, though I cried, I knew it was time to say goodbye. We looked at each other like we always did till the very end. I wasn't prepared for your breathing to stop when the vet gave you the sedative. But you were tired. All that time leaping, racing, and bounding and playing hide n seek with me finally caught up to you. God, I'm going to remember you till the end. I don't know how I will ever find a dog as great as you and right now my heart feels too heavy to even think about finding another. You could ever be replaced and never forgotten, Marvin. I love you, sweet boy. I hope wherever you are now that you're happy and that you are loved as much as you deserve.

So Sorry

So very sorry for your loss! I loved your story about your sweet Marvin.
It will get better with time, I promise! I lost the love of my life (a golden retriever) after 14 years together. Three years later I adopted a little white mini schnauzer and now she is the light of my world.
So grieve for your Marvin but know that his spirit will always be with you.
