It's with a heavy heart that I write my farewell to you Rusty. I am happy that you are now in a place where you can once again run and frolic.
You were my friend and confident and although I know that some may think that you were just a dog, you were so much more. You picked me up with your silly antics when I was down, you walked beside me when my legs were wonky, you let me whine and complain and never judged me. You always loved me unconditionally and I loved you.
You lived a good 14 years and I am so happy that you were around for so long. You were family and I am ever so grateful that you came into our lives. The good Lord knows we were so lucky to have you.
I'm looking outside right now expecting to see you but know that will not be anymore. I shall miss you my friend.
