I had to say goodbye to my beautiful 14 year old German Shepherd on Thursday.
I don't know how I am still standing. This dog brought so much joy into my life on a daily basis, that now she is gone, I am devastated.
There's no way I could possible articulate how much this dog meant to me. I could never find the words.
Believe me, sentences cannot summarize the time this dog invested in being my shadow.
No language has a vocabulary to describe the loyalty and affection she conveyed every time I came home and wrapped my arms around her.
She would constantly find where I was in the house and check on me to make sure I was okay. If there were times when I wasn't okay, she'd find me and stay by my side. How can I attach those thoughtful actions to a few trite syllables?
I could be doing the most mundane task around the house, like blow-drying my hair, and she'd sit in the hallway to keep me company, smiling all the while.
Snicks loved all food. Because of her penchant for food, I called her Snackers, Secretary of Snacks and my little Rataouille. If the fridge was open, Snickers would be there. If someone was even in the kitchen, Snickers would make sure that she would be there just in case any crumb were to accidentally drop to the floor.
sketches, and paintings. I even had videos of her, but they hardly mirror her true likeness. God created a remarkable animal when He made Snickers. People would always tell me that they could see her smile. She had the best smile!
I can say with confidence, she loved me and I loved her. She will be greatly missed for the rest of my days.
I thank the Lord for blessing me with her friendship and love for 13 cherished years.
