Mourning a Best Friend

On Sunday, March 23rd, 2008 at 7:30pm (PST), I lost my dearest friend. I spent the last 17 days of her life in the same room with her and only left to go shopping for food or to pick up work to do at home. She died peacefully in her sleep and I have yet to achieve any type of normality within my head or in my heart.
She was an energetic, lovable and happy JRT in her 14 years on this cosmic rock. She chose me as her human at the JRT shelter in San Berdoo by escaping from her cage and jumping on me as I sat with the JRT the shelter had picked out for me. As she licked my face and nuzzled my hair I knew I had found a rare jewel. Her bright eyes and exuberance filled my days with glee and now I am saddened. I truly loved that little doggie and she will occupy a place in my heart until I , too, shed my earthly skin and become as her.
My tears I shed because of the emptiness I feel without her.
She was my best friend and I miss her so much
Bye Gidgie Girl,
Bye lil midget.
