My little sidekicks: Forever 15
by Oso
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 they came into this world and only thinking about watching it or even remembering it, makes me cry. Oso and snoopy were my best friends and the reason I remember coming home do 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, their was snoopy and oso. They reminded me that I had two little sidekicks that loved me. That 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 then 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 then 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 live you with all my heart and I miss you so much. I miss everything. Los amo mucho mis mossys.
