Every moment I was blessed to have with you was special. I will forever shed tears over my profound loss. I'm so sorry Strawberry, you left this world so suddenly and unexpectedly. I didn't get the chance to say good bye while you were still here and I am very saddened by that. If only I would have known. I pray you are happy and resting peacefully. Thank you for all the love and support you gave me the 11 yrs we had together. I will cherish the wonderful memories we shared, and forever hold them in my heart.|
I remember the day we went to adopt you from your foster home, Nov 2 2007. You were only 12 weeks old, and the most adorable baby puppy girl. It was a very happy day for all of us, Mommy, Daddy, and Brandon. You were going to your forever home with us so we could love and care for you until the end, and we did just that. I know you was a happy girl and you loved your family tremendously! We gave you the best life we could baby girl!
I loved the way you always snuggled so close to me on the couch at nights. You had your very own glass of water that sat right next to mine so you didn't have to get up and walk to the kitchen for a drink out of your bowl.
I will miss seeing you next to me in my bed every morning when I open my eyes, and reaching over to touch your soft beautiful fur, and saying good morning to you.
You were so sweet, and really loved your family unconditionally
You were like a cat, always grooming your paws, ears, and eyes. It was so cute to watch.
I will miss seeing you laying outside in the yard on a warm sunny day
You loved to lick daddy's face for as long as he would let you...lol
You loved life!
We will always miss you Strawberry! You are forever in our hearts! Have fun playing in the rainbow meadow with all the fur babies! Until we meet again sweet baby girl, rest easy, We love you!
12/11/2018 It's been 3 weeks baby girl, since I last held you. I miss you terribly and my eyes fill with tears as I am trying to type this. I cry every day, it hurts so badly. It isn't getting any easier for me. I want to see you, my beautiful girl. I want to hold you and kiss your beautiful face and feel your loving kisses in return. I just miss YOU Strawberry! I love you forever! XOXO
12/13/18 Strawberry girl, I just had a breakdown. I cried so hard I was sick to my stomach. I miss you so bad, and it doesn't seem to get any easier for me. I have had many great pets in my life and have grieved over all of them when they passed, but there is just something special about you baby, we had a very special bond that I can't even explain. You were such a good girl! I want to somehow see you and be with you again. Please, come visit me in my dreams. I hope you miss me as much as I do you! I LOVE YOU Strawberry!
12/19/18 Hello there sweet baby girl! It's been one month since I saw your beautiful face and pet your soft pretty fur. It feels like yesterday and I still cry often because I miss you so much! I hope you are happy and watching over us. I think you would be happy to know we adopted a fur baby and brought her home Sunday. Her name is Chloe. It took some thinking over because I didn't want you to think we were replacing you. Please know sweet baby, no dog will ever take your place. You were a very special girl. Chloe is sweet just like you, but still not you, but she needed a loving home, just like we gave to you 11 yrs ago. I know someday I will be reunited with you, I hold on to that positive thought. I can feel your presence at times, I know I'm not imagining it. I love you Strawberry! I will be back soon to visit. XOXO. Send your kisses my way as I do to you everyday!
01/03/2019 Hi sweet girl Strawberry! I miss you so much! I still think of you often and shed tears everyday. The holidays came and went, it was so sad not having you here to be a part of it with us. It just wasn't the same. Chloe is getting big and such a sweet girl just like you were. I want you to know, I love you and always will baby girl...no other fur baby will ever take your place. I know you would want us to be happy and for Chloe to have a happy home with people that will love her and care for her. Sending hugs and kisses your way baby girl XOXO, I will be back soon to visit.
01/16/19 Hi baby girl! It's been a while since I visited, almost 2 weeks. I still think of you every day, and I miss you badly. I cry often, especially when I visit your memorial, it's hard to type right now with tear filled eyes. I know you are in a good place, I know you are happy and pain free and having lots of fun in the rainbow meadow, and I am at peace knowing that. Chloe has kept me busy these days, I know that helps me. I want you to know how much I love you Strawberry, I will never forget about you. I will be back to visit again. Sending hugs and kisses your way XOXO.
02/14/2019 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO THE SWEETEST GIRL!! XOXO <3
03/04/2019 Hi Strawberry! I was cleaning under and behind the couch yesterday and I found a little clump of your fur. I smiled when I saw it, but then that smile quickly turned to tears. I'm still having a hard time without you by my side. I can't believe you are gone. I cry everyday along with the gut wrenching feeling that I get. I will never heal from this pain I have. I will learn to live with it somehow, but I will never completely heal. I want you to know, as I always tell you, that I will never forget you. I love you always. XOXO
05/21/2019 Hi baby girl Strawberry! It's been a while since I visited you here. I'm sorry, but that doesn't mean I don't still think of you everyday. You are always on my mind. I miss you just as badly today as when you first left this earth. I think about a lot of memories that make me cry, but also memories that make me smile. I know one day we will be reunited, until that time, rest easy, and think of me often, like I do you. Blow me kisses, and visit me in my dreams like you have a couple times already. Love you always, sending hugs and kisses your way XOXOXOXO.

11/20/2019 Hi my precious girl Strawberry! It has been a year since you were tragically taken away from us. It still feels like yesterday. I often get the gut wrenching feeling in my stomach when I think of that awful night. I am confident though, that you are very happy where you are, and very much at peace. I know that one day we will be reunited, because I can't imagine it any other way. I will see you again my sweet lovable girl. Until that day, don't forget about me, I will never forget about you! Love and Kisses to you my sweet girl Strawberry! XOXOXOXOXO

11/3/2020 Hi Strawberry! My sweet baby girl! I'm sorry I haven't been here to write lately. A lot has been happening in my life and I've been so very busy, but not a day goes by that I don't think about you or see something that reminds me of your presence. I moved to a new home and so much has been going on with that and trying to get settled in. I was resting on the couch last night and grabbed a blanket to cover my legs, our special blanket that you and I used to snuggle under together. It brought tears to my eyes. I miss that so much Strawberry and I miss you! I can't wait to see you again and hold you in my arms and give you sweet kisses. I love you baby girl! Love, mama XOXOXO
THE PAWPRINTS LEFT BY YOU.
You no longer greet me, as I walk through the door.
I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
~ Love, Strawberry
