My heart is numb with grief, and I know the nights will be difficult without him since he spent most nights under the covers snuggled against me. I miss the sound of his bark when there is activity outside, and the sound of his sigh when he would lie down near wherever I was. He was my companion, my cuddlebug, my grumpy one, my delight.
I am thankful that his end was not prolonged, and that I was with him. But oh, how I will miss him for a very long time.
