Dear Kita,

Dear Nakkita Von Abby Schmid,

I don’t even think I can find the right words to express how much you meant to me. I still remember going to get you when I was only 14 years old. I chose you because I could already tell how smart you were – it was a hot summer day, and you were the only puppy clever enough to stand with your paws in the water bowl. I knew instantly you were mine, and you were all mine!

I have never been more proud or cherished anything more in my life then you. You helped me through some really hard times growing up, and I don’t think I could ever thank you enough. You were there through my parents divorce, and accompanied me back and forth from my mom to my dads when I didn’t have any siblings to do so with me. You were always there for me during an unhealthy relationship, illnesses, and mean girls.

You never ceased to amaze me with your intelligence. Oh the times you made me laugh! I love that you weren’t always the fondest of intruding dogs, or people you deemed not worthy to be in my presence. Oh and did I mention you were the most beautiful dog on the block? You were my baby, my protector, and my best friend.

I can honestly say the day I found out I was going to have to say goodbye was one of the worst days of my life. I didn’t want to accept it, I wanted to keep you here with me even though I think you were ready to go. And you were a fighter, you stayed for a couple more days just for me, so I could say goodbye. You lived your whole life like that, doing whatever I wanted and loving me completely and unconditionally. It takes a dog to teach us how to love like that, and I promise one day I will be able to love others how you loved me. I just really want you to know how thankful I am for everything, and how much I love and miss you. It’s been three months and I still think about you every day. I’m sad that I feel I did not get enough time with you, but I would rather have shared my life with you for 9 years then any other dog for 15. You only broke my heart once in those 9 years, and that was the day you left.

Thanks for all the joy, I know I’ll be seeing you again. Love, Manda
