Here we are again old girl.So much has changed since you left us. I feel like everything started going downhill for me since you went, but I know that isn't really true, things just happen like that sometimes.

You really were my best friend, and I'm still getting choked up at the thought of you. I know things would be easier now if you were still here, if you were here with me on the days I felt most poorly I know you would curl up at the end of my bed. I know you would help prevent me from feeling so lonely, but time isn't that kind. No matter how much extra you get, you always get greedy and hope for just one more day.

You defined who I am, I learnt responsiblilty, love, respect, trust, friendships - all from you.

I will never forget the precious memories you gave me, and you truly were a once in a lifetime dog. Thank you for picking me, and refusing to leave me when you werent meant to stay. The only reason you didnt leave, was because we were too attached to each other, so our bond was always a 50/50 partnership.

The more I grow, the further into my past you go. But I will never ever forget what you taught me.

I can relate to so much of what you've just written SJ.

She was obviously a very special girl. Much missed and never forgotten!! X

- I didn't want to just say that I missed Bonnie, so i thought I would share this. x

A little face pressed underneath the gate, making the strangest of noises. High pitched whines from a tiny little head that fit in between the panels of the gate, moving from one to the other.
"Thats Bonnie", they said. I think I loved you in that moment, even before you were mine.

After the high pitched whines had stopped, the tail wagging began. And it wasn't just normal tail wagging, when you were happy your whole back end would start to sway and you couldn't even stand still. At the time I thought you were all legs and fur! But you were timid too, your tail would lie flat against your stomach and you didnt like new people. Which is why everyone thought it was strange that you liked me at all.

After that day, I would go in the car every time Mum picked Ben up from his new friends house. I would go, just to see you. Until the time when you weren't there. You were over the fields, and I could see your little tail in the distance. And at the time, even at eight years old I thought it was strange how they didn't care where you were. And when I called you, you ran from the fields and back into the garden - your ears so long they trailed on the floor.

I think you were already mine then, at least in our little world you were.

I remember playing with Amy, having a sleepover and when Mum came to pick me up I didn't want to leave. And I remember her words even now.
"You want to come home, were....babysitting something"
And I remember her smile, and it was different. And my heart leapt and I had this little thought and that said "please let it be Bonnie". And it was. And when I got home you were there, with Ceasar and he was thrilled to have another dog to play with. But it was temporary. You werent staying.

But she didn't want you back, and at the time I thought you were there for a holiday. What I didnt know was that we were looking after you because they weren't sure if they wanted you. And after a month of walking in the woods, of sleeping at the foot of my bed every night like George and Timmy from the Famous Five, it was time for you to go. And I cried, and my Dad said we couldnt keep you. And I begged him, and I said if you went to the dogs home I would never see you again, and I said that you were my bestest friend and they both still said no. Mum and Dad said we couldn't keep you.

But you fit, you just did. You were part of our family and in the end they said yes. I never understood it in the stories that I read when people said that they 'hugged their knees'.But that night, I did. I climbed into bed and hugged my knees under the duvet because you were really mine. And then you jumped up, and you stayed there. And the next day I bought you a new collar and a new lead, for your new life.

You stayed there forever. And tomorrow it will be four years since I said goodbye to you, and I miss you every day. I think in my head that everything would be so much more tolerable and good if you were here. And even now, writing this I feel like my heart isn't so much breaking, as it is already broken. Its been broken since you died and I would give anything to have you back. But life doesn't work that way and just like everything we have to say goodbye.

I am so grateful that everything aligned how it did, and we managed to find our accidental hello that lead to saying the goodbye was that was so very hard. I miss you, and I love you.

If you had " a special" relationship with an animal that is the most amazing experience. Especially during childhood and the teens. No matter how many there follow and yes you love and care for them,It might never get to this level again.
How many tears has this creature shared with you? How honest were you with each other. I guess that people who haven't had a pet during those years might write diaries and day books. Certainly I didn't as I had the bets friend called Sajosha. And with no other pet this bond is/was felt so far.
