Dear Pepa,

I wish you would know how I feel when I wake up to your big eyes in my face and your tongue all over my cheeks. I wish you would understand how it feels right before I close the door and you stand there with your head crouched down. I wish you would know how much I miss you every second I am away from you and look at your pretty face on my phone.

I love you.

Dear Coco,


You let me know you loved me even though you could not speak.

You let me know you were there to comfort me during difficult times.

You let me know when it was time to play or time to relax.

You let me know you were here to show me how to love unconditionally.

You let me know how to display courage while you faced the deadly effects of cancer.

You let me know you still could see even after you went blind.

You let me know you could still understand my voice even after you went deaf.

You let me know it was time for me to let you go when you were ready to leave this world.

And when my time comes to leave, you will let me know that you wait for me at the entrance

Of the rainbow bridge.

Dear Cooper,

I love you more than you could even imagine. I lost a dog, a Yellow Lab like yourself several years ago. It was a heartbreaking experience and I was very hesitant to ever own another Yellow Lab again.

However, alas you entered my life. An eight-week old puppy who instantaneously melted my and your dad’s heart. We discuss everyday on how wonderful, amazing and fantastically awesome you are! You are not just a dog, but a true companion.

Without a doubt I miss my old Lab, but I couldn’t have asked for a better or more loyal dog or friend than what we have in you. You fulfill our lives more than you will ever know. We will continue to love you each and everyday as you do for us without reservation. You are our Super-Duper Cooper! We love you. xo
