Memories of Nyaro

My Dearest Nya Nya,

Words cannot describe the emptiness that I feel since you left us. You lived a lifetime with Yuriko, but I only had the pleasure of knowing you the last few years of your life. Despite your age, you were taken away from us too soon. You were strong and healthy, and were it not for your penchant for eating things off the ground (as all dogs do), you would still be with us right now. I miss you so much, more than I thought I could ever miss anything in the world. You were more than just a pet, you were my friend. You and Chichan taught me so much about unconditional love. I had to learn to get over some of my own insecurities in order to accept you in my life. I knew you would grow on me but the connection I felt with you went beyond anything I ever expected. Being around you made me a happier person. If there was one thing I always looked forward to at the end of the work day, it was coming home and seeing you, feeding you and taking you for your walk. I miss so much about you. I miss how you always sat on my feet. I miss how you looked at me whenever I was in the kitchen, just waiting for a scrap of food to fall on the floor. I miss seeing the silhouette of your butt underneath the door, waiting for me whenever I came home. I miss seeing how excited you were when I finally walked through the door. I miss watching you eat. I miss taking you for your morning and evening walks. I miss rubbing your furry head and stomach. I miss how you'd sit in the doorway of whatever room Yuriko and I were in, looking outwards as if to protect us. I miss how you'd jump up to eat your morning cookie. I miss how you'd lay in your bed and just stare at me. Sometimes you were a spoiled, selfish little dog, always wanting for attention, but that's what I loved about you. That was your personality. You were so funny, you always made me laugh. Just thinking about you now brings a smile to my face and tears to my eyes at the same time. I'll never forget how you came up to me when you sensed I was feeling down. You did your best to cheer me up and it worked. Or were you really just looking for me to rub your belly?? But I know you loved us, too. After Chichan left us in January 2007, I made sure I told you I loved you every day. I never wanted to take you for granted. Now that you're gone, I try to take comfort in the fact that I gave you everything I could. I hope that I was able to make your last few years comfortable and happy. I'm guessing you are together with Chichan, your lifetime companion, as it was always hard to imagine one without the other. Rest well, my friend, wherever you are. I hope I see you again some day. There will always be a place in my heart for you and I will always look back fondly on the memories you left with us. I will never forget you.

All my love,
Todd

My Beloved Nya Nya, it has been two months since you left us. It feels so long ago, yet just like yesterday. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and miss you. -- Todd

2/13/08

My precious Nya Nya, I still can't believe you are not with us anymore. It's been 3 months and it doesn't get easier. I might be okay one moment, then I just think of you and I'm crying the next. I miss you boy. --Todd

3/13/08

Dear Nya Nya, as I wrote on Chichan's page, not a day goes by that I don't think about you guys. I miss you terribly. For some reason you've been in my thoughts more than usual lately. I still have my moments of profound sadness, even four months later, and I long to hold you in my arms just one more time. Thinking about you makes me laugh at all the little things you used to do, and then a second later I find myself fighting back tears because you are no longer here and I will never be able to experience those moments with you again. I miss you and love you so much. Until next time... --Todd

Dear NyaNya, I'm writing this note a little early this month. I forgot ChiChan, and since I was signing her guest book, I thought I'd go ahead and sign your page too. I still miss you and think about you all the time. Today I happened to drive past the animal hospital where I last saw you alive. I thought about the video Yuriko took of us when we went on our last little walk together in the courtyard. It made me sad. Talk to you again next month... --Todd

5/13/08

Dear NyaNya, it's hard to believe you've been gone for six months already. I've been thinking about you so much lately. I thought it would get easier as time passed, but I still miss you so much. Your memory will always be with me. Every time I see you and Chichan flash on your mom's screensaver, it makes me laugh. We shared so many good times together. Until next time... --Todd

6/13/08

Dear NyaNya, it's Friday the 13th. Today is, indeed, bad luck because you are not with us right now. But I always take comfort in my wonderful memories of you. I still think of you every single day and wish that I had my little buddy sitting on my feet. I miss you so much and I wonder if that will ever go away. Maybe it shouldn't. It will serve as a reminder of how much you meant to me in this lifetime. Until next time... --Todd

7/13/08

Dear NyaNya, another month has passed and not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I remember the times I'd lay on the floor and you'd sit right next to me. I'd rub the top of your head and you'd literally melt into the ground. When I stopped, your head would pop up and nudge my hand to rub you some more. I really miss that. Until next month... --Todd

8/13/08

Dear NyaNya, I still think about you constantly. I miss you so much it's unbelievable. I hope you're okay wherever you are. Until next month... --Todd

9/14/08

Dear NyaNya, I'm sorry I'm a day late in writing this message. I'm in Shanghai right now so I'm a little off in my scheduling. I meant to do this last night. You are sorely missed and loved as usual. While I'm away, please check in on your mom. I love you! Until next month... --Todd

10/13/08

Dear NyaNya, just another monthly note from me to let you know how much I miss you. Even so far away in China, I think about you all the time. Whenever I see someone walking a dog on the street over here, it automatically makes me think of you and Chichan. I've also seen several dogs that look a lot like you. Your mom and I miss you so much. Until next month... --Todd

11/13/08

Dear Nya Nya, I can't believe it's already been a year since you left us. I think about you so much, but it is with a heavy heart. I can't help but think that if I had done something different this never would've happened. If only I paid more attention when I took you walking that morning, maybe you wouldn't have eaten that thing. I know you like to eat stuff off the ground so I should've known to watch you more. I can't forget that night when I came home and that look you gave me. You knew something was wrong and you wanted to hide it from me. I'm so sorry, Nya Nya. But probably the worst thing that weighs on my mind is the fact that I was not there for you when you left this earth. I wanted to be there to see you through to the other side so you wouldn't be afraid, just like your mom and I were there for Chichan. But I wasn't. Instead, you died alone in a cage. It breaks my heart when I think about this. I don't know if I can forgive myself for that. You were so special to me, you taught me so much and were such a good little friend and companion. I miss you, Nya Nya. There's a giant hole in my heart where you used to be. I don't know if it can ever be filled again. I don't know if I would ever want it to be. --Todd

12/13/08

Dear Nya Nya, Another month has gone by. I had a dream about you the other night. It's not the first time I've had this dream. In the dream, I want to see you and hold you one last time. You come running to me, so I kneel down and you jump up in my arms. I hug you and don't want to let go. I can feel your fur against my skin. I tell you how much I love you and miss you and that I want this moment to last forever. Then I wake up. Until next time. --Todd

1/13/09

Dear NyaNya, I only write here once a month but I still think about you every day. We miss you and wish you and Chichan were here with us! --Todd

2/13/09

Dear NyaNya, Today is Friday the 13th, an unlucky day indeed, since you are not here with us. Miss you guys! --Todd

3/19/09

Dear NyaNya, I'm sorry I forgot to sign your page last week. Hard to believe that could happen when I still think about you every single day. Wish you were here! --Todd

4/13/09

Dear NyaNya, Thinking about you always and miss you so much. --Todd

5/13/09

Dear NyaNya, I can't believe it's been a year and a half since you left us. You are always in my thoughts. I wish you were here with us right now. Until next time. --Todd

6/14/09

Dear NyaNya, Miss you as always. Until next time. --Todd

8/13/09

My Dearest NyaNya, I'm sorry I didn't visit you last month. I won't make any excuses. I still miss you so much, it's unbelievable. I'm having such a hard time letting go. I think about you all the time. I hope you and Chichan have found Dioji and are keeping him company. --Todd

11/13/09

My Dearest NyaNya, I'm sorry I haven't been by to visit the last few months. I miss you so much, and I can't believe it's now been 2 years since you left us. It hasn't been the same without you. Always in my thoughts. --Todd
