My Pookie

Losing your best friend is very hard. I adopted pookie back in 1992 she was just a pup. I had no idea that she would be apart of my life for the next 18 years .Wow who would have thought she would live so long. I adopted pookie because I could not have children or so I thought. Two years later my first daughter was born. In 1993 I was in a car wreck with my former husband and his mom and dad. We were hit by a 18 wheeler at a red light he was going 60 mph and we was sitting still. My mother in law died instantly. I was heartbroken and devastated ,she was like my mother. Pookie was the one I cried to because at that time in my life I felt so alone. In 1994 on mother's day I got pregnant It had taken me 8 long years I was finally going to be a mom.I was so attached to my dog Pookie and I couldn't imagine loving anything more then her but I quickly found out just how much more love you have for a human . My baby girl grew up with pookie and they played together all the time. I would dress them both up in matching outfits to keep them entertained. At this time I was pregnant again with my second child. Life was good and boy did it go by very fast.
Pookie died in Oct. 2009 the day before her passing I knew it was time she was frail and thin and was to weak to stand. That night I held her in my arms all night long until the next morning. She whelped out in pain through the night. I knew her body couldnt take it no more. My baby was going to leave me now and it was difficult to handle.I talked to her and told her just how much love she gave to all of us and I kissed her.We buried pookie at the home where we all lived together through most of her life . She is resting In peace now under a  cherry tree I planted over 15 years ago. So every spring she will have beautiful petals covering the ground she once use to play.
