Lita, You've been gone for a little under a year now, and I still miss you. I knew you were sick, but I really thought you would get better. I should have known something was really wrong though.

I remember that day when I was home alone. I let you out into the yard like always, but you wouldn't come in for hours. It was SO cold outside, and you just sat there in one spot on the grass.

You wouldn't let me pick you up, you cried no matter how gently I tried to. So I brought out my comforter from my bed and wrapped you in it, and held you. I was freezing too, and hysterical because I didn't know what was wrong. But I didn't leave your side until Dad got home to help bring you inside.

Mom and Dad took you to the vet the next morning without waking me up. They brought you in that day with hopes that the vets could find the problem and make you healthy again, but they found out your body was shutting down. Your organs were failing from age. There was nothing they could do, and they put you to sleep that morning. I woke up to a phone call from Mom, telling me between sobs that you were gone. I was so upset that I didn't get any warning or a chance to say goodbye to you, but I know now that Mom and Dad just didn't want to see me hurt.

They loved you too, very much.

You were such a great dog. Your playful personality was just like a puppy's until your final days. You always got SO excited when it was time to go outside. You'd always jump up on your hind legs and dance in circles near the door, my silly girl. (: You always found ways to make me laugh. You were so sweet too. I loved when I was sitting on the couch and you would walk in front of me, lay your head on my lap, and look up at me with those loving eyes. You were so soft and cuddly when you would lay down with me.

I miss you in a way that most people wouldn't understand if they've never lost a pet. Sometimes I forget you're gone and expect you to greet me when I walk through the door.

I loved (and still love) you so much baby girl, you were so special to me. You were 13 years old, but you'll always be my little puppy.

Rest In Peace, sweetheart.
