A Best Friend Lost

Our hearts feel so heavy, we weep under a crushing sadness, our beautiful Casper is gone.  I know this all-sounds cliché, but he was so loved by our family. He was so much more than a pet.  Casper brought us so much joy, love, comfort and companionship.

We fondly remember him running wide open from one side of the backyard to the other, leaving an arched dirt trodden trail etched into the tall green fescue.  Or, discovering him one day nonchalantly standing on top of our kitchen table.

We remember the warm embraces when leaving the house for the day, and the jubilance, both displayed and felt, on our eventual return later in the day.  Lazy weekend mornings with all the snuggles, hugs and kissy kisses.  We are so thankful for his relentless example of unconditional love.

As Adrienne often said, Casper was our “sweet, sweet boy”, or object of our love “who is the prettiest white puppy dog in the whole wide world?”.  My Dad admiringly once said, you got a “good ole dog”.  He was my “buddy”, he was family, he was a best friend.  We love you and miss you Casper.

We know Casper is free from his broken body, running and playing in the great outdoors of Heaven.  And then, coming to rest for a while on Dad’s lap, while giving big kissy kisses to Mom. I so look forward to seeing them all once again some glorious day.

  1. Losing such a friend is hard to bear. Time and memories comfort; but, the ache never truly heals. I had such a friend for seventeen and half years; and, nowadays even after such a long time I still miss her.

        1. That’s Sophie Rose. She like to walk alone with me. She walks up to things and looks back at me. The others don’t care about walking alone. They are all female Cocker Spaniels. And, they are all rescues.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss Sam 💔 I have experienced this type of loss and know how you feel. My wife and I always take comfort in knowing that our dogs weren’t in pain anymore when it was time for them to leave us. It still hurts like hell though.
