16 years ago, on the truck ride home after picking you up, all you did was sleep in my lap. Today, 16 years later, you laid your head to rest in my lap for the final time. A feeling so hard to describe - so utterly heart-shattering, gut-wrenching, yet peaceful all at once. The saddest moment is when the one who gave you the best memories, becomes a memory.
Iím thankful I had the chance to sleep with you on the floor one last night, got to snuggle you all day today, fed you your favourite treats (timbits, cheese, meat), took you for one last walk, took a ton of pictures of you, laid outside with you, and most importantly - Iím thankful you passed peacefully in my lap listening to me say I love you and rub your ears like you loved, surrounded by family who truly adored you more than anything in this world. You were our entire world buddy, you always have been.
We knew your time was coming, but I knew I couldnít prepare myself for losing you (as much as I tried to). How do I put into words how remarkable youíve been the last 16 years? Well, I canít. Youíve been my best friend since public school and now Iím almost 27; crazy how time flies and how strongly a bond can grow over so many years. You were just perfect, even in your roughest times, you rose above and were always living life happy. You were one of a kind, with the most loving & stubborn heart.
Our bond was irreplaceable; you have been by my side for so long all I can think is how do I fathom life without you there with me. Iím trying to remember that with great love, comes great grief. Knowing the reason this hurts so badly is because of how strong our bond was, makes my heart smile even though itís crying at the same time.
I believe you will be up in doggo heaven... able to finally see again, run again; chase squirrels and cats, play dead like you always loved to do, and live another life of pure joy until I get to be with you again. You were, and always will be my #1, Molson. I will never forget about you. You changed my life forever when you crossed our path 16 years ago, and Iíll always cherish that.
Rest easy Mo, because after all youíve gone through, you really deserve rest. Itíll be very hard to get used to life without here. I love you. We all love you and miss you tons already.
