When a pet gives you his heart ... it is hard to not return the affection.
This is Grimace.
He is my son's dog and Grimace loves his "papa" very very much.
He came into our lives as a rescue at the age of 3. He made such a difference in our lives.
Such unqualified love and devotion he shared with all his family.
At some point he discovered he had a grandma.
That discovery led to 11 years of a loving relationship that grew and grew and grew.
There was nothing I wouldn't do for my soul mate.
Towards the end of his life we became so close.
Yesterday, at the age of 14 1/2 my dear Grimmy's life came to an end.
I was at his side.
He struggled and struggled until the very end.
I kissed his dear face, rubbed his floppy ears and gave him a last hug.
It was my last loving gift to him - letting go!
Today is the day after.
I am lost without him.
