I Lost My Best Friend Today
I lost my best friend today, but my heart bursts with the joy of knowing that you, Sir Stanley, and I, a mere human, were best friends for most of your very long dog life.
Sometimes I forgot to feed you when you were hungry, but you still loved me unconditionally. Sometimes you messed in the house when we had to leave you alone for a bit, but I still loved you more.
Today there is a hole in my heart far too big to ever fill, but right next to that hole will forever reside the memory of your gentle face and your stubby, wagging tail.
My friend, I will miss you desperately for all the days I have left on Earth.
I hope we will meet again.
