Dearest Bingo,

Tomorrow will be 12 weeks since you went to join your friends at Rainbow Bridge. I cry as I write this, but then I cry every night.

I miss you more than words can say. I am so very grateful for having had you in my life. I thank you for all that you gave me. You loved me unconditionally. You barked to keep me safe. You traveled with me so I didn’t have to drive alone. You adjusted so very well to each and every move. You were wonderful.

I’m so sorry that I didn’t say I love you often enough. I’m so sorry that I couldn’t make the cancer go away. I’m so sorry that you aren’t here with me.

I want you to know that there will never be anyone who can take your place in my heart. You made your place, and it’s there for you forever. I will never forget your cute little underbite. I’ll never forget how you raced around after your baths. I’ll never forget how you loved keeping the squirrels in the trees. I surely won’t forget your last response when I asked you to come, sit and down. You did the come and sit. You just looked me as I asked you to lie down. After I tapped the floor with my finger, you tapped the floor with your paw….I guess you told me, huh?

God must have really needed a very special angel in His heaven. I’m sure that is why He called you home. I thank God that He allowed me to be your earthly mother. I was very blessed.

I miss you, baby, and I hope you run, play and jump til your heart’s content. When you see me coming, just run and run to me. I’ll bend down, pick you up and we’ll waltz our way into heaven.

Forever yours…..


Charlotte Hayes
