Memories of Mia
Where do I begin to talk about the wonderful memories I have about you over the past 16 years you were in our lives. I remember the first time I saw you at Mulberry Farm. You were a tiny little thing with the most beautiful bright eyes and the cutest face I ever saw. I was in love at first glance and I knew you were ours.
I will never forget the day we brought you home. You were a spunky little thing nipping my hands. You weren't home 2 days when you started to play fetch with Daddy. That was your favorite thing to do and you could play for hours. We would get exhausted way before you ever did. You were our little princess and we loved you without any limit.

We are so happy with you that we decided to add another dog to our family. So we were again at Mulberry Farm and we met Luke. When we brought Luke home you were not too happy. He tried to get you to play with him but you just ignored him. Then after two days of trying he laid on his back and showed you his belly. That completely changed your opinion of him. That night while he was in his crate you took your favorite toy and put it on top of his crate.That was the beginning of a great love affair between you two. From that day on you became inseparable. It was tough when Emmy came to live with us. She was 5 years old and was my friend who passed away dog. You two were so close there really wasn't a whole lot of room for Emmy. You guys were never mean but it took a while before she was officially accepted in the pack.

So many beautiful memories I have of you. It was so hard to let go of you but we knew you were failing and we didn't want you to suffer. When we loss Luke it was fast. He was only 10 years old and was never sick but one day he just died. It was such a shock and it hurt so bad because we never had a chance to say goodbye. I am so grateful for the hours we spent together before we took you to the vet. I held you in my arms for 4 hours. I could have held you forever. I will never forget when you were on the table and there was tears coming down my eyes and I was saying goodbyes. You comforted me.

You kicked my face and stared in my eyes till it was over. You were so beautiful even then when you were gone your beauty shines through. Even the vet said you were the best dog ever and you were beautiful even at the end.

Emmy misses you. She knew something was going on and she kissed you before the vet put you on the table. she has been so quiet since you are gone. I hope she bounces back and is able to be happy again. When she came to live with us there were three of you now she is alone and my heart breaks for her too. I wish she could talk and tell me how she feels. I felt that way with you too. I want so bad to know you are with Luke and you are okay. That you understand we did what we did because we loved you. I could not love you more if you were a human child. You were our baby.

Do you remember when Luke died. You were so crushed you took over his characteristics. You became completely
attached to Daddy like Luke was. You did things you never did. It was kind of freaky. I read some where when two dogs are very close and one dies the other sometimes take over some of the departed dogs characteristics as a way of mourning their pal. I truly hope and pray the two of you are together and you are happy. I love to close my eyes and picture the two of you running and playing together again. I use to love to watch you guys and I know how much you missed Luke when he was gone.

Everyone who met you loved you because you were such a great dog. You were fun and as smart as they come. You were so curious you use to look in ladies handbags. We would tell people zipper up your bag because nosy over here will pull everything out. Shopping bags too were a favorite of yours. Heaven forbid anyone would leave food out it would be gone in a second. Once we were at a Mulberry Farm Reunion. It was in this beautiful huge park out in the country and all the dogs ran free. it was so much fun. Naughty little you jumped up on a picnic bench and grabbed a sandwich out of a kids hand. Everyone laughs about it but I was quite embarrassed but how could I be mad at you though, you were just being a dog.

I could write about you all night. There is so much to say about the special little girl you were but now my heart is so heavy and I hurt when I breathe. I know as time goes on the pain I am feeling would lessen and the open wound will become a scar. You will never be forgotten and the one thing I am sure of is no matter how many dogs enter my life there will never be another you. You were that special. It isn't just me that feels that way. You were everybody's favorite and I've been told over and over you were one of a kind. There will never be another Mia. I am so blessed that you were a part of my life for 16 beautiful years. I say goodbye my sweet girl until we meet again. I love you with all that is in me.💔

My Forever Pet

"There's something missing in my house,
I feel it day and night.
I know it will take time and strengh
Before things feel quite right.

But just for now I need to mourn.
My heart - It needs to mend.
Though some may say it's "Just a pet"
I know I've lost a friend.

You brought such laughter in my home,
and richness in my days...
A constant friend through joy and loss.
With gentleloving ways.

Companion, pal, and confidente,
A friend I won't forget.
You'll live for always in my heart,
My sweet forever pet."
