To my sweet Timber girl,
From the moment that you finally came home with us until today, I have loved you and will always love you. You were my best friend for 3 years. You slept at the foot of my bed every night unless we were camping then you were in bed with me. You comforted me when I was upset, you watch over my children, and licked any scraps and bruises.
I’ll never forget the way that you would run full speed towards me ( or as of lately hobble) when you hadn’t seen me in a few hours or how you were always there to get me out bed on school mornings so Emma wouldn’t be late. I will miss that, and I think I’ll always miss that. But the thing that I miss most is the comfort of having you next to me every night with your obnoxious and loud snoring/heavy breathing. Yes, it was annoying at the time, but I would give anything to have that back in my life.
Anyway, I hope you're happy at the rainbow bridge. Playing fetch, chasing ranger and cotton, and rolling in the grass. I hope you’re taking naps and eating enough ice cream or jerky for the both of us. I’m trying my hardest to deal with this and get through life without you while comforting the kids and not letting them see me cry. I’m sure it will get easier, but that doesn’t mean that I miss you less or that I love you any less. I hope you know how much I love and miss you. I am eternally grateful that I got to have you as a dog because you were the best dog that I will ever have. You were my girl. #rainbowbridge #mygirl #mybestfriend #imissyou - 13 minutes ago
