My Soul Friend
(Orange County, CA)
Crystal, my Whippet/Heeler partner, was an amazing girl.
More than one person in pain found her, and was comforted by her.
One man drove around the block to come back to her. He told us that she had looked up at him while we were walking, and something about her eyes called to him, and would it be ok if he talked to her.
He had lost his own partner a few weeks before, and as he told Crystal about his loss, a dark cloud left his face.
Crystal was my best friend. I will never forget her, or stop missing her. Our years together were nothing less than a blessing.
I will miss her warmth next to me as we slept. I will miss making her dinner.
I will miss throwing her beloved tennis balls.
I will miss looking over at her to find her looking at me.
I will miss her sneaky kiss when she wanted a treat.
I will miss her excited face at the gate.
A part of my soul went with her when she left so that I can find her in the next life.
She is my anam cara dog, and I can never lose her.
I love you big dog. Fare well and sweetly until I get there.
A pairing of minds
man and dog that know each heart
both chase dream rabbits
