'Rex My Heart'

My heart

My heart

Rex came into my life 17 years ago and my life was changed forever. Little did I know this little dog would be my best friend. Everytime I had bad experiences in my life I knew I could look next to me and see his understanding eyes. He would give me a loving "it will be ok mom lick".

I have played all the years over in my head, cried more tears that never seem to end. No more picking him up every time I come in the door or walks at anytime he barked at the door. I miss him so much and my heart is just crying to see him again.

He got sick with kidney failure and I knew that the day I was dreading was approaching too fast. He went downhill fast. I had my last day with him at home and I sat with him in my arms for hours on end, telling him all I could tell him and sorry for the times I may have not been a good Mom. He just looked at me and never turned away. So weak and tired, not eating or drinking, stopped moving, I knew the time was here.

As I took him to the vet I knew I had to do the right thing by him. He has been so loving and loyal to me I had to do the same for him. Letting him suffer and keeping him around because I didn't want to hurt would be wrong to him.

As I held his face in my hands saying "I will love you forever" over and over again I felt his last breath on my face. I miss him so much and my heart is broken. Praying he is running on rolling hills and has found a child who needed him too.

I love you soulmate, my heart.
