I lost my best friend Zoe just 2 days short of her first birthday. She contracted a weird fungal disease, cryptococcus. Since Christmas of last year, the two of us had been inseparable until I had to have her put to sleep. It was a heart wrenching decision, but the only one I could make.

I will remember all the good times we had together, our daily strolls down by the river where she swam every day and I would throw sticks for her to retrieve, the rides in the truck that she loved so much, and the visits to gram and grams house where she got to play with her pal Ebony.

I have her ashes with me, and have yet to decide just what I will do with them. Perhaps sprinkle them down by the river, or maybe even wait to have her strewn with me when I die so we will always be together.

I will always love her and remember her in my heart. Her love for me was truly unconditional and she was a brave little girl right to the very end, and happy to be with me in my arms for that one last time.
