Dear Best Friend...

Thank you for always being there for me. I could never put into words the impact you had on my life. Thank you for sitting by my side when a boy broke my heart and always being a step behind me when I entered a room.

Thank you for always being there when I came home and always showing me unconditional love.

Thank you for never letting me down for the past sixteen years of my life. I hope you are at peace now. Even though I type this with tears streaming down my face and shaking like a leaf, I know you are in a better place. Our home won't be the same without you. 

I love you Koko Loco and will cherish all of our memories. 

Please say a prayer for my baby boy...

Koko....

  2. I'm so sorry. I do know what it is like - although of course everyone has a different experience so I would never say I know how you feel.

    Three years ago we had to say goodbye to our two dear cat boys within a couple months of each other after 18 years in our hearts and home. It's awful. I still miss them both every single day.Even though we've moved, when I walk through the door of our home I wish they'd be there. It sounds ridiculous, but there it is.

    Try to concentrate on the good memories and know that you blessed his life as much as he blessed yours. Nothing can take that away. x

  8. I am so sorry Mari. Isn't all of that so true?? Reading this got to me and really hurts me too, you have me crying over here with you. I miss my girl everyday since she passed and when I see her face I still cry, I miss her so much, but it does get easier with time. Remember the good times with her and know she was blessed with a great life and someone as loving as you.

  12. I am so incredibly sorry. Losing a pet is one of the hardest things in the whole world. I have a 15 year old cat and I try and cherish every single moment with her because I never know when It will be her last. Reading this post made me cry and feel so sorry for you and I want you to know if you ever need anything to let me know :(

  13. My eyes instantly filled up with tears. I am so sorry Mari. Losing a pet is so, so painful. My "boys" have been through so many ups and downs of life with me. I don't know what I would have done without them. Your boy was a lucky dog to be loved by you. Hold on to the memories. I'm still crying as I type this...

  18. Oooh sorry to hear your sad news, pets becomes such a close part of our families, it is so heart wrenching when we have to say goodbye.

    The one consolation, is that your dog had the best possible life, and the good memories will be in your hearts forever.

    Hope my little sister is feeling better soon :)

  20. I am so sorry to hear about your dog! I cannot imagine the pain, but I know it has to be horrible. At least the little pup made it to 16 years, and you got to enjoy them the best you could!

  23. Found your blog a couple of months ago and came back to this post cuz I just lost my Oscar yesterday. The pain is unbearable. He was my best friend and, like your Koko, he was there for me through break ups and bad times. I think it's awesome you ran a race in Koko's memory. Hope I can find something to honor my Oscar. Cheers to our buddies. They are living in paradise now. =)
