I am going to miss you. I am going to miss my shadow all these years. I am going to miss you greeting us with your wagging tail. I am going to miss you getting under my feet. I am going to miss your calming presence when I was anxious or sick. I am going to miss your velvety soft ears and that freckle on top of your nose. I am going to miss your gentle nudges or putting your chin on my lap when you needed a pat. I am going to miss you tapping me with your paw. I am going to miss watching you enjoying the wind in your face as you savored all the scents from afar. I am going to miss taking you for rides in the car and hikes in the foothills. You don't have to be scared of fireworks and thunderstorms anymore. Rest in peace until we meet again...
