Dear Izzy,

Izzy

You have been the best friend I have ever had–good riddance to the families that didn’t adopt you, because they missed out. I will never be able to truly explain my bond with you but you just make me so happy. When I am in a bad mood and I can do something to make you happy, it makes me smile. You are such a great dog and you love me unconditionally–and I love you. You were there when no one else was and you never left my side. I am so grateful I have you in my life. You truly are my best friend.

Dear Herculeez,

Herculeez

You have changed my world. I never thought I could love an animal as much as I do you! You have been there for me through the good and bad times. I know I spoil you rotten, but you deserve to be spoiled as much as possible! You don’t even know you’re a D. O. G. You are like my third son and I can’t imagine my life without you in it. You are a precious gift from God that I cherish everyday! I love you bunches and you will always be my lil’ man! I love you Hercy!

Dear Windy,

Windy

In your death this morning, I know we were meant to be together now more than ever. I gave you a home and you gave me so much more. I didn’t rescue you, you actually rescued me–and I am so grateful that I was given the honor to love, care for and protect you each day.

Your love has always been huge and gentle. Your sweetness in life has brought such joy to all who have met you and known you. Windy, thank you. I love you and you will always be in my heart. I will miss you and I know I will see you again one day. Until then, know that your 12+ years on this earth with me brought me great love and taught me about so much.

My puppy daughter Windy, sleep sweet.
