Today I lost my best friend. He was a part of my family and has been for 13 years. It was hard watching him take his last breath, and it was hard saying goodbye, but he was sick and old, and he is in a better place now. I guess I will be sad for a while and I will miss him, but he will always be with me in my heart.
It will be hard coming home without him waiting for me at the door and it will be hard not to be able to pet him every time I need comfort, because he was always very good at comforting me. My life will probably be a bit empty for a while, because he was a big part of my life, but every time I’ll get sad and miss him I will think about how great it was to have him in my life for 13 years and how great it was to be there when he left this world. Letting him know that I was there for him and that I loved him. We will probably get another dog at some point, but this dog, my best friend, will always have a special place in my heart. 13 years is a long time and I can’t really remember my life before him. I was 8 when we got him, so that is probably why.
Goodbye Madsen. You were my best friend and my family. I will forever miss you and I will never stop thinking about you. I love you.
