Born in our bedroom.
You were my perfect girl.
Must have been good dogs needed somewhere else than here.

I will not be able to see your new pups. As they had to follow you.

Don't wait for me, troutie

I'll be along
And we will traverse mountains

Thank you for all your help.

You knew how to say goodbye
I do not.

I am so sorry, Tea. This was way too soon. One day, you will no longer cry because she is gone but will be able to smile because she was your partner.

Tears here again. I'm so sorry, Tea. What a rotten heartache. :(
