Dear Patches,It's been almost a year since I lost you. Tomorrow will mark the anniversary of the worst day of my life. The day I lost you. On March 30, 2018, you were hurt. The injuries weren't thought to be severe - you would heal on your own in a few days. But as the night progressed, you only got worse. You became more miserable. You were struggling. And on March 31, 2018, you left my life. I'll never forget the way you stared into my eyes as you took your last breath. Tears still fill my eyes every time I think about it. Sometimes it still hurts as much as it did the day I lost you. And it's hard to breath. Hard to move. I was only blessed with you for two, short months. Two months was not nearly long enough. You had so much to learn. So much love to give. You sister and I needed you - we still do. I can see the hurt in her eyes as well. And every once in a while, she looks at your picture. She misses you, Bubba. We both miss you so, so much. I'll never fully understand why you had to go so soon. Why you had to cross that rainbow bridge so soon after coming into my life. It seems so unfair. There's a hole in my heart that I cannot heal. A hole where you belong. I would give the world to see you again. You were torn away so suddenly, so tragically. It left an ache that will never truly fade. I'll never forget that goofy smile or the wag of your tail. I'll never forget the look in your eyes every time you saw food. How you suddenly became the biggest dog in the world, able to get through any barrier in order to reach what you most wanted. I'll never forget that little bark or the sound of your collar, or your nails padding across the floor.. I know you're okay now, but I'm not. As each day has drawn closer - closer to the first anniversary of your death - my heart has grown heavier. If only I could hold you and hug you just one more time that would be enough.

I know how you feel...If I could only hold and hug my Liberty one more time. It would heal my heart instantly if I knew she was ok. I'm sorry for your loss.
