I still remember the day we adopted you and the joy my 8-year-old heart felt when I finally had my own puppy. In my pigtails and hair ribbons, I paraded you around all day and showed off my cute little mutt to everyone I met. Isn't it every girl's childhood wish to get a dog? I read numerous dog novels as a child, but no canine hero ever seemed to compare to mine.
Your brown eyes see everyone equally and you greet everyone with the same warmth. Your tail never stops wagging because you live in a constant state of happiness.
You saw me through so many stages of life. From playing Barbies to high school prom and everything in between, you remained a constant in my life. Petting you and giving your furry body a hug always seems to calm stressful situations. You always know how to make us smile.
Now that I am in college, I no longer see you every day. I cannot call or text you like I can a family member. Yet you still welcome me like old times whenever I come home.
Thank you for making us laugh. Thank you for being a friend who always listens. Thank you for loving us despite our mood. Thank you for thinking we are the best humans alive.
Thank you for wagging your tail even on the rainy days. Thank you for showing us that even when the sun is not shining, life is still good.
We have a lot to learn from you, Becca Boo. You will forever be the sweetest dog in the world. Everyone thinks their dog is the best, but I know mine is. You were the best childhood dog I could have asked for.
Your Favorite Human ;)
P.S. I really wish you could read this.
