Christmas Eve Without Leya

My precious Puppy,

My first thoughts when I woke up today were as always of you and how much I love and miss you. I can't seem to stop crying.

It is Christmas Eve, my first in 12 years without you, and there is just such a deep deep sadness in my heart. On Christmas Eves past, when it seemed like I would never get the wrapping finished, you would always snuggle on your blankie under the tree and wait for me.

You would always twitch your ear or lift your head whenever you would hear a bag rustling, just in case you missed seeing something that was for you. Of course, in the morning you thought everything was for you. We would laugh at how excited you would get when you had a present to open. You were always on Santa's good list of course.

You will be so missed tonight as you are every day. I wish with all my heart we could be together and I could hold and cuddle you and kiss your beautiful face and gently rub that spot by your ear that has the softness that nothing else on earth does.

Please come to me in my dreams if you can. I want so much to be with you again. You will be with me in my heart tonight and always Leya.

My love always,
