You were there on the first day of school in a new and scary town and you were there on the first day of college in a new and scary city. You were there when we had to move to a new home. You were there when the storms made it dark. You were there to keep me company when I was lonely. You made me smile and were there to dry my tears. You were a playmate, a sister, a best friend. You tolerated playing dress up but loved playing in the mud with me. You most importantly loved to run but I was always a few steps behind. Sometimes you made me mad and made me sad but how could I ever stay like that towards you. You always gave me that look and licked away my worries. As I write this I have tears rolling down my cheeks remembering everything, the good the bad and the ugly. Even over the weekend, on your last days, we still made each other happy. Darcy, you don’t understand how much you are missed but I know you’re in doggy heaven running around freely, soaking up the rays, and thanking me for the beautiful life we shared. I love you girl, I always have and always will. Rest in peace puppy.
