I'm going to miss you so much.
The time we've had together seems so brief, I tried to give you the greatest life a dog could ever have - you deserved it so much. I can't believe anyone ever gave you up and abandoned you. They missed out on having such a great companion, such a perfect companion.
Life won't be the same without you anymore. It feels like I've lost my shadow. Who's going to watch me brew and keep me company throughout the day? Your spot at the end of the bed each night is going to feel so empty.
I still remember when you first came into our lives. You found rehoming a difficult process and struggled to relax, but as soon as you got into our car, you immediately calmed and sighed happily, like you were thinking 'I'm going home now!' And it was your forever home, but all too briefly.
In so many ways it feels that although I may have 'rescued' you, it was you who saved me in the end. No matter how bad things got, you were always there waiting for me; greeting me with love and happiness, giving me a reason to move forward. I feel so honoured that our souls got to share a life together.
Ollie, my baby boy, this is all going to be for you now. God knows how hard it's going to be at first to see your face on each bottle, to even say your name in this business, but it will pass, and then I'm going to see you every single day and know that you're still here watching me, looking out for me and you're still there by my side.
Sleep well, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for choosing me.
