I closed my eyes and watched my little puppy running through the dry summer grass and dissappear into the forrest.  13 years ago I met my soulmate, my life forever changed by a fancy french furry little monster named Chloe.

Chloe

When I die it will be of a broken heart but thats not how it all started out.  I hated dogs.  They stink, shit, piss on everything.  They shed all over your furniture and clothes, they bark and eat your shit and in general find every button you have and push it every single chance they get.

Chloe

I never believed in God until I met this new little alien that would completely consume my life.  It took less than a month for her to convince me in the all mighty because surely as the sun will rise in the morning there would be no dogs without a higher being.  If it wasn’t for the fact that puppies were so damn cute we would kill them.  But in her infinite wisdom God did create them cute and adorable and loyal beyond the scope any human will ever understand.

Chloe

We did battle that first year but from the very first night she kept me up crying at the top of her lungs we were connecting at the heart.  We would eventually travel the world together by boat, private jet, car, bike, foot and every other means we could dare dream up.

Chloe

We lived in cars, apartments, mansions and slums.  We called an abandoned clam plant our home as well as a 6000 foot warehouse, a snow cave and a tepee.  We have been rich and poor, happy and sad.  Everywhere we went and we went everywhere, we did it together.  Soon into our relationship we made a pact that we would live forever, I don’t know what her soul is made of but whatever it is hers and mine are the same.

Chloe

24 hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty five days a year.  Thats how long we have been together.  I can’t magine life with out her and I never could, she is my best friend, confidant and an all around instigator of a better life for the both of us.  Every single decision I have ever made was based on her and her needs.

I held my best friend in my arms as she took her last breath today and remembered the words a friend recently said to me.  We were talking about a book Idea I have been mulling over and all the adventure we have had together when she said to me.  That sure is one lucky little dog, you saved her that day you adopted her from the rescue.  You have it all wrong I responded.  I didn’t save her, she saved me.  Before I met Chloe I didn’t know how to love unconditionally.

Chloe

Goodnight sweetheart
Til we meet tomorrow
Goodnight sweetheart
Sleep will vanish sorrow
Tears and parting may make us forlorn
But with the dawn a new day is born
Goodnight sweetheart
Though I’m not beside you
Goodnight sweetheart
Still my love will guide you
Dreams will enfold you
In each one I’ll hold you
Goodnight sweetheart
Dreams will enfold you
In each one I’ll hold you
Goodnight sweetheart goodnight  -Dean Martin
