best. dog. ever.


My best friend for the past 14 years... I will love you and miss you forever.

Go back to sleep now
My darling
And I'll keep all the bad dreams away
Breathe now, think sweet things
And I'll think of all the right words to say












One day we’ll disappear together in a dream
However short or long our lives are going to be
I will live in you or you will live in me
Until we disappear together in a dream

I know the pain. I'm thinking of you, Elin.

This is a lovely post.

My heart breaks for you while I read the poem and see pictures of your fur baby.

Its a pain that never goes away. It hurts less, but is always there. After 10 years...its still there.

Oh, Elin, I am sorry for your loss. I hope that you are comforted by your wonderful memories of him. It sounds like you gave him a wonderful live and constant love... so you both were so lucky to have that time together.

Now I know why you were having a rough week. I'm so sorry for the loss of your best friend and pet.

Elin said...

Thank you everyone.

The words are actually lyrics - two different songs, but they both convey what I'm feeling. He was a very special little soul. Nobody has ever loved me as much as my Pippin. And I felt just as much love for him.

I wasn't ready to say goodbye.

Elin-
I hope memories will comfort you. Thank you for coming to CREATE and teaching us even though you are going through such a rough time. My heart was breaking for you.
