This is Tsuki. She’s my boyfriend’s parent’s dog. I’ve known her for over 6 years and lived with her for almost 4.5 years. She was almost 10 years old.
On November 8,2016 we took her into the emergency clinic because she suddenly became immobile and unresponsive. Unfortunately, within minutes of taking her into the clinic, her heart failed and they were unable to revive her.
I wasn’t, am not, ready to let her go. Her ashes are in her urn at a little alter at the front door next to her older sister. Each time I thought about her, I would start crying because I missed her so much. It still breaks my heart that she isn’t here. Each time I come home, I look down when I come through the door, because I’ve done just that every day for 4 years and she would be at my feet to greet me home.

I Loved You Best
So this is where we part, My Friend, and you’ll run on, around the bend. Gone from sight, but not from mind, new pleasures there you’ll surely find.
I will go on; I’ll find the strength, life measures quality, not its length. One long embrace before you leave, share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true, but they be they, and they aren’t you. And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought, will remember well all you’ve taught.
Your place I’ll hold, you will be missed, the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed. And as you journey to your final rest, take with you this…I loved you best.
All Dogs Go To Heaven. I’ll see you one day over the rainbow bridge, baby girl.
