Today I am absolutely dejected as I unfortunately had to say goodbye to the best friend I've ever had in my entire life.
We had the best 13 years together that any dog and human could ask for, and I wouldn't trade one day of the time we got to spend together. You were intelligent, cunning, brave, loyal. You never needed a leash, you could say human words. You even had a sense of humour, which may sound unbelievable but anyone who knew you knows how smart, present and eerily coherent you always were.
I will miss you forever and I will never ever forget you!
This really stings, and I'm trying to just keep reminding myself you are in a better place and no longer suffering. You were my entire world and my heart I literally loved you and thought about you as much as any people in my life.
You are and always were people too as far as I'm concerned, and I will remember you and miss you and cherish you and the time we spent together as best friends forever.
I hope your soul is somewhere, running with people who love you and take care of you and your eating all the pita bread, cheese and pizza you could ever want.
Rest in peace Hagan, I'll always love you and you'll always be my Hoogy and my number 1 best buddy.
