MIMAY AND ME

Mimay is the type of dog, any animal lover would adore.

She's extremely loyal. And although she's not trained, she doesn't know any tricks, she may not even be the prettiest dog out there, it did not affect how much she loved us.

I have fond memories of Mimay.

I remember during her prime, she would often follow us wherever we go. I could go biking around the village, and she would just stroll along with me. One time she even chased my dad while he was driving from our house to our business several blocks away.

Although she knows no tricks, our dog is one of the most talented animals I've ever known. Everyone in our neighborhood knows her, and they love her because she was our puppy factory. She produced some of the cutest puppies ever (in my opinion at least). And what's good about her is that she's not selfish with her litter. In fact, she's the one excited for us to see her babies.
I remember one time, my mother was beside her during one of her difficult labors.

My mom really loves that dog. And that dog loves her too. A couple of years ago, when my parents left for the States for a six month vacation, we all know the dog missed them. She lost her appetite. She lost some teeth and fur. It may have been old age then, but when came back, so was the dog's energy. Her hair grew back and she got to the way she was before my parents left. It's probably a miracle. But our explanation for it was that she's happy again her masters are with her again.

She died late this morning. I wasn't with her, and we were more or less expecting she'll join our creator soon as she's been sick for the last couple of weeks.

But that doesn't take away the fact that we'll miss her. Greatly. She taught us dogs don't have to have breed to love it's owners. Loving us is in their nature.

I'll miss you Mimay. I love you so much.

Goodbye.

so sorry for your loss, engel.

But you know what they say: All dogs go to heaven.

Cats, on the other hand, end up guarding the underworld.

I cried my heart out when my family gave away my doggie. He's a mix breed german shepherd, so everytime he greets me, he literally jumps on me and crunches my hand. But that ok with me, it's his form of endearment naman.

Dogs really are man's bestfriend.. My condolences, bro.
