Dear Winnie

Dearest Winnie

On this your first birthday, I felt the need to write you this letter. Your darling mother and I had so looked forward to watching together as you grew; I know she is looking down upon us now and is as proud of you as I am. She loves you with all her heart, and that love will endure eternally.

How do I tell you how special you are to us? From the moment we set eyes on you, we felt something wonderful and amazing had happened. I remember looking into your sweet face and thinking “Dog, we are so lucky to have this beautiful puppy”. You were everything I never knew I wanted, and more. You made me a better dog, and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for you.

Your mama did an amazing job to help mould you into the young dog I see before me. She is the one who taught you to be patient and kind, and above all, to love with a passion. And Winnie, you learned your lessons faithfully. A sweeter more thoughtful pup you could not be; you are quite simply remarkable and all who meet you will want to be your friend.

Little one, the hardest thing a parent has to do or face is when their puppy grows up and leaves home. I know that it is our job to do this – to prepare you for a greater purpose – but that doesn’t make it any easier when it happens.

As you go forth in your life, we wish you happiness and joy each and every day of your life. May you know only good times darling, but should there be sadness at any time in your life, remember your past, who you are and where you come from; lean on the strength and courage that mama has shown you possess.

I hope that you will always know that mama and I love you. No matter where else you are, or where we may be, you will always be in our hearts. If you should need us, that’s where you will find us.

So to end this and to thank you for coming into our lives and making a difference that can never change, I thank you and say this from the bottom of my heart. WE LOVE YOU AND ALWAYS WILL

from your loving mama and doting papa xxx

    As I type tears are streaming down my cheeks -your love for #OurWinnie is so beautiful & enduring. Winnie has been blessed with the best parents any puppy could ever hope for – to be as beloved as she is is a blessing. I know Keely is looking down on her little girl with so much pride & love-she’ll always be close by as Winnie travels through life. You’re a beautiful family and I thank you all for sharing your lives with us! I love each & every one of you very, very much! ((HUGS))
