To my dearest Rocco,
Words fail me to describe the hole I feel in my heart. Two days ago you were healthy, snuggly and full of life. I still am hoping to pinch myself awake and have this all be a really bad dream. But I know it's not, because the house is so quiet. The room is empty here without you constantly by my side. I so loved your company, holding you like a rockstar would and how you were the epitome of a lap dog which kept me warm on cold winter days. You allowed me to be your mommy this past year, it was a crazy year in which you taught me about the amazing world of having a dog as a friend. Training you wasn't easy, but I wouldn't take back a day. Just two short days ago I looked at you with admiring eyes, you had come so far. I adored your endless energy, I loved our walks together.
As I wipe my tears from my cheeks - which don't seem to run out, I see your little paw prints on my wood floor. I can't bear to put your food bowls away, your leash is hanging up, ready for us to go for a walk. I miss you little buddy. You'll always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for bringing joy to our family, for letting the girls dress you up like a girl, for never leaving my side...
You were the best little yappy dog a girl could ever ask for.
I have never been good with good-bye's, so I'll see you later...

It's just so sad, Moni. We will all miss him, but I know you'll miss him the most. He was your constant companion, your sidekick.

I'm sure there's nothing that will make you feel better right now, but just know that you have lots of friends that love you and are praying for you since you've lost a very dear friend. ((HUGS))
