My dearest beloved Chloe,|
It's so hard to believe you're really gone. Words can't describe how much you're missed. Our home is so empty without you here my sweet darling. Everywhere I look are reminders of where you once filled our hearts and home with laughter and so much love. The pain of losing you so soon is almost unbearable, but I take some comfort knowing you're no longer suffering in pain from cancer. You remained so strong, almost up until the very end. Still trying your best by greeting me at the door holding your favorite stuffed puppy in your mouth,and tail wagging. Always so happy and eager to give a big wet kiss, which would be your last final parting gift you gave to me and Kaleigh. We knew it was time; Your little body became so weak, and that beautiful sparkle in your eyes was no longer there. Our lives will never be the same since you came into our home and stole our hearts, which is where you will forever remain. I know Koda misses you terribly. The hardest day, the day after you passed, was coming home from work and walking your sister alone without you, and filling only one doggie bowl of food. I still see you everywhere; Outside in the backyard, on the couch, in the laundry room where you always liked to close the door with that long nose of yours and be on your own away from all the noise. Mason misses you so much. He and I are releasing a pink balloon in your honor with a message he wrote himself. He knows it will reach you all the way to rainbow bridge. You're one of the most beautiful basset hounds I have ever seen. Perfect tri-color with the cutest freckles on your front legs. I'm so glad we had you for the 7yrs and 11 months. I wish it could've been so many more years. I miss those sweet ears, and that silly howl/bark sound you would make by rolling on the carpet and scratching your back every time you came in from outside the backyard. There are so many, many things I will miss about you sweet Chloe. The days ahead are going to be so difficult, but for now, when I look at our Christmas tree with your picture ornament hanging there and I just smile at how beautiful you are! I miss you my precious darling so much it hurts. They say time will heal; Perhaps the daily tears may subside, but my heart will forever miss you Chloe. You were such a sweet companion and sister. I hope you've met George an Shadow by now and you're all playing and chasing squirrels. I made you a promise when I held you and you closed those lovely eyes for the last time that I would see you again, and we will one day. I hope you can see us. I wish I could hold you just one more time. There will never be another basset hound like you Chloe. You're loved so very much, and are so deeply missed. You're in my thoughts all day. I love you so...
I miss you everyday Chloe; Not a day goes by without you being in my thoughts. I see your picture everyday, and wish so much that you were here with us. Koda's birthday is tomorrow, and it wont be the same without you here sharing in her birthday treats.
