|Perdi, when you came to us, I had no idea how special you would become to me. I don't know exactly when it happened, but almost immediately you were my best friend, and I was yours. There was no question about it, everyone knew it. You became my whole world. It never mattered that you couldn't hear, because even though you were deaf, we always understood each other just fine. We went through so much together that it's hard to believe you were only with me for just under 2 years. All the moves, the changes in our lives, and of course, your kidney disease. I'm sorry that you were so sick. I'm sorry that you had to be on meds and special food the whole time you were with me, especially since you were only 4 years old when you came to live with me. But, I know you didn't mind it too much, because you still wagged your tail all the time and followed me everywhere I went. You were so wonderful and sweet, I enjoyed being around you more than anything. Everyone enjoyed being around you, and I introduced you to all your friends. You especially loved Steve and Chris, and they love you, too. And of course, Nate (your 2nd best friend), who you loved most of all, besides me of course. Here is something I bet you didn't know. Nate didn't even like dogs at all before he met you! I know, I bet you don't believe it, but it's true. You know how he goes up to every dog he sees to pet them? That's all because of you. You really changed his mind about dogs. If you're wondering about all the food and treats I put by your spot there at Rainbow Bridge, it's because you can eat them now! You're not sick anymore, so you don't have to worry about it hurting you. Thank you so much for sharing your life with me. I miss you so much already, but I am very thankful to you for every second we spent together. I'll love you forever. I'm glad that I got to tell you everything important that I needed to before you were gone. The only thing that I didn't say was that you were my soulmate. But, of course I didn't have to tell you that. You already knew.|
Perdi's People Parent(s), Amanda & Nathan, would appreciate knowing you have visited their Perdi's Memorial Residency.
