Memories of Pip
My darling boy. You came to us with puppy enthusiasm and always left us smiling. Your beautiful blue and brown eyes always seemed to show you cared and I remember talking to you through all my worries.
You were there during mum and dad's divorce, my descent into crippling depression, my scout for previous partners and through good days and bad. Even when I moved out you always greeted me home with loving bounces.
It's all so raw still. I can't think of a time without you and I'm wrought with grief and tears that reduce me to puddles. Every dog I see reminds me of you, every sunbeam reminds me we won't ever walk together again (even if you never listened!). I'm cuddling a toy that reminds me of you. A lovely border collie one like you were pal.
You were such a good boy and you will forever be a good boy. My diggypigs, my pipsie dog, my bestest friend.
