1. Badger dog from the window of a New York pet store.
You were so full of life and character, you knew when I was not feeling well and were always there for me. You were larger than life. Even though you are gone you will always be with me. I miss you little one, I still feel like you are walking behind me or waiting to be hoisted into the bed to snuggle with me.
I will always remember you frolicking in the park chasing your tennis ball or wreaking havoc in my house hiding that same ball. You were beautiful in every way my little one.
But I always knew just as surely, just as clearly, that life is not beautiful and that the moments could not last. So when you crossed into the next life, even though my heart shattered into a million pieces, I was not surprised because what is beautiful does not last in this life - In this life where dreams do not come true.
Wait for me on the other side of the dark waters my little girl and someday I will join you. We will play ball again and eat hot dogs again, you will ride in the car with me again wherever I go and we will forget that this horrible world ever existed.
We will meet again my old friend; you will always be with me. Until then my little one I will see you in my dreams. As a friend you will never be replaced. Daddy misses you very much - I love you.
