To My Furry Friend,
I sometimes wonder what goes on in your mind. "Do you know how much I love you?" "Do you know I miss you when I leave?" "Are you happy?" are just a few of the thoughts that I have when I look at you. I wonder how you wake up every single day with a big smile and wagging tail as if today holds a big surprise. Your positivity is contagious and makes me realize life isn't as bad as I sometimes think it is.
I truly believe you came into my life at a time when I needed you most. I've always had a hard time opening up but you manage to keep my deepest secrets and comfort me when no one else can. You deal with my high pitched voice that I make when I see you, and while I am sure you find it annoying, you still come to me. You hate coming into my room (unless I have food), but sometimes I catch you late at night crawling in and sleeping next to my bed. I'm sure you don't think about it, but that small action on your part melts my heart.
You have the cutest little face, and while other people may not agree, it doesn't matter to me. Each one of your quirks brings a smile to my face. Whether it be the fact that you come running when you hear a bag of chips open, how you snore very loudly in your sleep, the fact that you hate road trips with a passion, your love for going on walks no matter what the weather is, and how anti-social you are with other dogs, I notice these things and they make me happy.
I hope you know that you mean the world to me and will always hold a special place in my heart. People say you're "just a dog" but to me you are so much more. You're my best friend. You have watched me grow up and despite the awkward phases and the moving away to college, you've never left my side. I dread the day you will leave me and it will break my heart when that day comes, but I know you will always be in my heart. Thank you for all that you do, whether it be making me laugh, getting me to exercise, or comforting me when I am down.
I love you forever my furry little friend. Thank you for bringing my life so much joy.
