Your Pet Tributes

This is for my little companion, friend, comforter, fresh boy, love of my life - Zorro.

We adopted him 9 years ago at the shelter. A beautiful little cocky attitude that mellowed as he aged. He was my everything and followed me everywhere, gave me stuffed mice as gifts and stayed with me ALL the time. I had back surgery 3 years ago which failed and this fluffy boy comforted me throughout all my tough times. He has been my constant companion, my entertainment and playmate for fun games like hide and seek.

2 days ago, he came in the kitchen for a piece of meat when I made my sandwich. 10 minutes later he went upstairs and I heard what sounded like him running in place on our hardwood floors. Then growling. I went upstairs and found him - dead. He was gone and there was nothing I could do. I tried CPR, I cried, I begged, I rocked him.....but nothing or no-one could bring him back to me.

He is being cremated and will come back to me soon. I have not been able to stop sobbing, crying, praying, pleading..........this little precious soul is somewhere else and I pray he is in a good place until I meet up with him again. No words can describe the pain and loss I feel. The emptiness, the desperation. There is a big hole in my heart. I keep imagining him coming around the corner with a little mouse as a gift to us and announcing his present. It will take a long time to get over my by day.........
