The biggest cruelty of losing a pet that had your whole heart, is that the only thing that will ease the pain of losing them, he's cuddling up close to them. My sweet boy has always been a little bit on the sickly side. Lots of colds, kidney issues. But his constant affection, his playfulness, his running through the gardens with me, checking on the pumpkins and the chickens, and in general, coming into my life and stealing my heart, will never be forgotten. This last illness came on so quickly, and I did everything I could. I hope. I'm still adjusting to you being gone, and your absence is big. I miss you terribly. I'm so sorry I couldn't save you. I'll plant the prettiest flowers for you this Spring. I love you.
