Memories of Hershy boy
Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of mine

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

When it's cold and wet, please take me inside, for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements. And I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth. Though you had no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land, for you are my god and i am your devoted worshipper..

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst, feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the great master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you, rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest-and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands

I just can't quit thinking about you i keep looking for another puppy but the one's that i find that look like you are so Much Money, you can rest a sure there is another you out there and i'm going to find another you.

Hey Hershey, Been another month since we've talked still miss you so bad, can't wait till were together again I think i'm going to wait till miss mocha goes to be with you i just do not know if i can have another beautiful baby like you again. My health is starting to slip a little and i really just want to make it to my social security and travel would have been great if you were with me you were so obedient i could take you anywhere.Just not fair to a baby puppy boy if this is what i decide to do. You ruined me when it comes to lab's you were my best dog ever and there will never be another you damn i miss you, Love you so very much DAD

Hey baby boy hershey, God I miss you can't beleive it will be 3 years soon I have never missed a dog ever like you.I have been having problem with bugerlers trying to break in the house Miss mocha is hard of hearing you would have let me know if there were any sounds But that was your thing a protector Man i just wanted you last weekend when these ass holes were here miss you teribly baby..

Hershey hershey my best friend god how i still miss you after going on 3 yrs and i still miss you i'm gettin closer to ending out diary talks here soon but i'll have these diary talks these last years for me to keep till the day i die,so cause we only have a couple months left i wrote you something speacial.
I am so thankful for the time we had together, but it will never have been enough, every day I wake just wanting one more day, just one more day. Each morning I hope to find it was all just a bad dream, but no, it is a reality every morning when my foot reaches out to touch your body, but the sheets are empty for you're not there. But my foot still just moves over the spot where you would lay, just rubs gently back and forth wishing, needing to touch you one more time and I instinctively put my hand on the pillow over where your head used to lay and my heart begins to break all over again. Silent tears started to flow down my cheeks, tears of love, tears of joy, tears of laughter remembered, tears of a lifetime of memories, tears for memories that will never be, tears of utter heart break. Grief isn't clean, tidy, or convenient. Yet feeling it and expressing it is the only way to feel whole once again. I am profoundly sad and it's ok to be sad right now, I need to be sad and to miss him, to mourn and honor you. How could the passage of a mere few years make the absence of his presence more bearable? I need to walk through the center of my grief, feel it, taste it in my tears, it is the very act of mustering the courage to move toward the pain that will ultimately lead me to healing and to come out.

So even though my heart feels so deeply and utterly broken, I am thankful for the pain, the tears, the sorrow because it means I was one of the very lucky ones to have loved so very dearly, deeply and completely and who was loved so very much. It means I have a lifetime of beautiful memories. I will take grief's hand and let it lead me through the darkness and toward the light. Every day when grief brings me to my knees, I get back up and think of you, and it gives me the courage to get through another day without you. I am willing to go through this and so much more just to have you back all my love hershey baby boy DAD.

Hey their Baby, I'm just in shock that it has been 3 years since we got to be together how i miss your snugling up on a cold nite with your butt next to mine, I so miss you in the mourning how excited you were just to be up and out side chasing the cats sneaking a couple cat moursels Damn I loved you so much. Well miss Mocha does not have much time shes having a hard time getting up just hope with the warm weather coming she'll make it till summer. So hershy i've been looking for a puppy now for about 3 months i'm so afraid that moss mocha will go before the new baby come to the house i so wanted her to teach the baby manners. Well baby i'll talk at you wheel soon and I love you and miss you so much..DAD

Oh Baby it's been another month since we got to talk, How I miss you even though it's been 3 years BUT guess what we found another baby hershy and he will come live with miss mocha this april 2nd he's looks just like you did. I'm so excited and just can not wait to have a baby again. You were so perfect all I can ask is he be half of what your were. Miss mochca is having a real hard time getting around she can hardly run anymore,but maybe the baby will help.I love and miss you so much can't wait to see you again oh how i loved you..Dad

Hey baby,Guess what we got another you,he looks exactly like you did at his age. He has your eye's and looks his name is Reese and full of piss and vinager. He loves the pool just like you did he is having a little trouble understanding his Potty is out side.He has the same color brown as you and he is bringing back some great memories you and I had. I hope he's half as good as you i'd be very happy. I still miss you so much I miss you laying next to me in bed your snouring and your dreaming I miss it all, maybe things will get better for me know that i have a baby again. Miss Mocha is just getting to like him but like you he keeps biteing her lips and ears but she's putting him in his place. I hope it gives her a little spunk so she will hang around a little longer. Love You Baby, Dad

Hershey Boy, Reese is doing so well he is learning how to walk on a lease and is doing so well. He went to his first out door seating at a local eatery and did great. Phil and jax are here for a week and reese is in heaven with 2 big labs to play with, and is just starting to chase the ball like you used too (how i miss those nites playing ballie) He will be a little biger than you were but that OK he's such a good boy here at the shop. Mocha is doing better and she was in haeven with Jax's here and she got a chance to walk down Main Street yesterday and she sure got a lot of people's attention just like you did when ever we walked,God I still miss you terably I loved you so much I just hope i can have what you and i had for what was all to short of time, Love you Baby. DAD
