I lost my sweet girl suddenly on March 2nd to AIHA (Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia) and she would have been 9 years old on March 15th. I can hardly breathe thinking she's not here. Bristol was truly my dog soul-mate. She taught me more about love than anyone else ever has. She loved me and I loved her beyond words. I rescued her from the slab at the dog shelter in Baldwin Park on August 23, 2003 and that day she became my Bristy-girl and the doggy love of my life. I had been a cat person my entire life and it was my sweet Bristol who changed my heart and turned me into a dog Mom. |
I'm looking at pictures and remembering all the fun we had and still my heart is broken and I can't stop crying I miss you so much. I can't imagine a day that I won't think of you and not cry.
Coming home and not seeing you at the gate or hearing you squeal with excitement to see me hurts so much. I miss seeing you push your beautiful face through the kitty door to make sure I was there.
It's all the little things that I miss so much: Making pancakes this morning and I'm so sad that you aren't here watching and waiting for the first one that was always yours. Our early mornings together and how you would come out to the kitchen to say good morning and then go back to bed before I left for work. How you'd start drooling at the sound of me just opening the box of "cookies". I could hardly put my shoes on because you'd get so excited and thought your nose would help me tie them faster.
