Cornflake by Carol Craig / Mommy Carol


My dearest Corn, it’s hard to believe that it’s one year ago today we said goodbye. That was without a doubt the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make but I know it was the right time. Even though it was the right thing to do it still hurt and I still think about you and miss you every day.

For 13 years you were my constant companion. I can still envision you as you were when I first met you: a wild, independent husky hunter with your buddy Bandit, right beside you. We bonded from our first meeting and you really were destined to be “my boy”. We had so many adventures up north and eventually you moved back home with me and lived out the rest of your days as
a very domesticated and happy dog.

Losing Bandit was hard on both of us-we’d all been together for so long. The one positive was that we got to spend the last 3 years of your life together & you got all of the attention. Bandit so loved to hog the attention! I know your last 3 years were hard & that you had health problems but you just wanted to hang around & I’m so happy you did. I treasure every extra day we had together. Gimli missed you sooo much and slept on your bed for weeks. He still looks for his beloved Cornflake.

I just wanted to let you know how much you’re missed; how much I love you & how much I always will. You were one of a kind and I hope that you are at peace and happy, hanging out with Bandito.


Love Always,
