The date was November 15th 2000. I was in 4th grade and was the happiest kid in the world with the arrival of my two maltese pups. Their names, Oso and Snoopy. My mom recorded how tammy ( their mom) gave birth to them in our living room. & only thinking about watching the video or even remembering it, makes me cry. Oso and snoopy were my best friends and the reason I remember coming home so eager and happy. To see them wag their tales and bark in happiness. Slowly I grew up and so did Oso and Snoopy. I went through middle school and high school, and there was Snoopy and Oso by my side. As many adolescents during their teens, I began to suffer from depression and contemplated ending my life a couple of times. When I would get those thoughts that would grab a hold of my mind, there was snoopy and oso. They reminded me that I had two little sidekicks that loved me. They gave me unconditional love and asked for nothing more. As time passed and I went to college I could see my little boys age and slow down. Those energetic legs slowed down. Before they would follow me everywhere.From the bathroom to my bed, there they were, always. It hurt me to see that change in them and it took some getting used to. I took care of them as I took care of my own daughter. I feel at peace with myself that I loved and enjoyed every moment with them as possible, but their presence is greatly missed and I sometimes feel as if I cannot live again like I used to. I am having a very hard time adjusting to life without them. Their parting from me has hurt me greatly and I feel so sad and depressed. When I got them at the age of 10 to me now at 26, I don't know what life is without them until now. I miss them so much and I don't know what to do with myself. All I have are those precious memories that will live with me until the day I die. I wish I could turn back time so I could be with them once again. I have never had best friends like Oso and Snoopy in my life, and quite frankly I think I never will. I love you so much Osito and Snoopy. I love you with all my heart and I miss you so much. I miss everything. But I know and believe they're playing beside rainbow bridge waiting for me, and when that moment comes, I will never, ever let you go boys. I love you Oso and Snoopy. Thanks for the best 15+ years of my life. Thanks for teaching me about friendship and being humble. I love you!
