Resting by the window
The day we found out about you, your owner was going to take you to the pound because you were not like the previous schnauzer that you replaced! I always thought that it was such a lucky day. My hairdresser told me about you, as it was her aunt that was going to give you to the shelter. I told her we would take you home and when I saw you, I fell in love with you.
I took you home, put a big red ribbon around your neck, and when Daddy came home from work you ran up to him and he said "What is this?" and fell in love with you, too!
We loved you from the start and we were so glad that we were fortunate enough to be there at the right time, when you needed a home! You were in our life for 13 years and we loved every minute. You could see into our soul and you gave us so very much.
When I took you to see my hairdresser a few months after we took you home, she was amazed at the dog that you became. You had been in the wrong home before and fortunately, when you needed a new home, we were at the right place at the right time.
When you became sick this year, it broke my heart. We had been inseparable and I hated to see you sick. I was so afraid that we were going to lose you. Unfortunately, over time, everything the vets tried that was supposed to work, didn't. Your organs started shutting down. After some time, and seeing things unravel, I decided that I didn't want you to go through this anymore. It wasn't fair to you. We had you put to sleep.
You had been my life for 13 years. You gave so much love and joy. You were there through everything and you were my rock. You were such a joy, and had such a sweet spirit. Everywhere we went people fell in love with you. We could go to places where dogs usually didn't get to go. You were such an amazing spirit. When I had to let you go, it was out of love. My heart broke and it will never feel the same. I have your pictures and memories and will always think of you with love in my heart. You will never be forgotten.
I hope that the Rainbow Bridge really exists, because then I know that you are doing well and we will be together again someday. Think of us with love, miss us, but be happy and know that you were loved so very much. We miss you so very much, sweet dog. Love, Mommie
