You died half a year ago tonight and I had to say goodbye.It was six months ago when I watched you die.It's never easy when a man loses a dog as special as you.If somebody says that you were awesome, it will be true.
It's been three months since the day when you died.You were a wonderful dog and that can't be denied.I remember the day when I bought you.When you died, it was a terrible thing to go through.
Some Chihuahua dogs are hateful but you weren't hateful in the least.You were a very special dog and it's painful because you're deceased.Just one month ago today, you were still alive.

If somebody says that I don't care about my dog, it will be a lie.On August 18, 2020, I bought my new dog and she's my Sweetie Pie.She loves to lick my cheeks and my chin.Hazel loves to lick me over and over again.
I wasn't going to buy another dog because it hurts too much when they die.But I decided to buy another dog and she is my Sweetie Pie.When it comes to the heart, losing a pet sure will break it.
It was six months ago today when you drew your final breath.When I found you in my kitchen, I learned about your death.It was the day that every pet owner dreads.At about 10 PM, I learned that you were dead.
When you died, it brought about sadness, pain and tears.You died three months ago today, that's a fourth of a year.You died ninety-two days ago.Your death was a devastating blow.  
(Note: This is not a picture of my cat. It's a picture of a cat that looks very similar.)  
You were without doubt the best dog I've ever had.Your death has broken my heart and I'm very sad.When I named you Agnes, I named you after my late mother.I was your owner and you and I had a lot of love for one another.
The grass of the backyard Is a wild jungle, The clover a dense thicket A golden hunter, She tramps through the green Eyes bright,

I've got a new dog and she's as pretty as she can be.She has light brown fur and her name is Marie.She is a very sweet dog and I'm glad that she's so tame.She is special, that's why I gave her my mom's middle name.
What have I become? All I want to do is lie somewhere, on the soft and unbroken earth. Feel the pulse of mother's womb, hear the coyotes calling, wade into a cold  rushing river
