Cai Ling- any thoughts, fairy dust, broken dreams, heartaches, love, rainbows, just formspring me here
I will always remember the moment we first met. We didn’t get you at the pet store. My parents decided to adopt a dog from the SPCA and I am glad we did. You were the quiet dog sitting in the corner while the rest were so noisy and energetic but when we called you over, you slowly walked up to us, sniffed us and wagged your tail. That was the moment. The moment that I knew you were the one for our family.
When you were young, you were so mischievous! You snatched my nutella bread straight from my hands just when I was about to eat it. You chewed my aunt’s heels, you ALWAYS ran out of the house whenever we opened the gate and when we ran after you, you would play a game of hide-and-seek with us. Every morning, you would run up the stairs to look for all of us but as the years went by, your legs weren’t as strong as before but you would wait for us at the foot of the stairs and leave when you see that we have all come down. I still remember the time you chased after a car and bumped into it because you didn’t estimate your timing very well hahaha first time I’ve seen a dog hitting into a car. You got a light hit on your shoulder and immediately came running back to us. Silly girl.
You are my first best friend. You saw me through primary and secondary school, JC and uni. You saw me through all my heartbreaks, my ups and downs. I thank you for that. I thank you for all the happiness and joy you have brought into our lives. There’s nothing quite like the silent devoted companionship a dog gives you. The past few months have been tough on you, especially the past week. It hurt me a lot to see you struggle and suffer. You couldn’t do simple things like relieving yourself and even reaching the water bowl was a painful struggle. My heart just broke when I found a gaping hole in your upper lip because you fell down while trying to get up. I’ve never seen you so lifeless, so sad.. and when I hugged you, all I could feel were bones. You were still eating but your body stopped absorbing all the nutrients and you were just withering away slowly in front of my eyes. I had to make a decision. I hope you understand. I hope you don’t blame me.
As I type this with a heavy heart, knowing that you won’t be here to greet me when I come back home anymore, I hope you are in a better place. You left me with so many memories. In fact you left alot of people with many happy memories. These memories will fill my mind, until we meet again.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
