Harley gone but never forgoten
by Samantha Beach
I guess I was about 11 when I found my little harley outside of my grandparents house. When I saw him I knew that God had put him here just for me. I was going through a hard time my parents where getting a divorce. I was starting a new school, and never had many friends. When I first got him everyone told me not to get to attached someone could show up and say hey thats my dog and take him away, but noone ever came. After a while my dad let me give him a name...so I decided I would call him harley. I had had him for 4 allmost 5 years and a month after my 16th birthday, it was a normal day I let him out and went to school, but when I got home my whole world got turned upside down. My baby had been bit by a snake and the vet tryed all he could but by the next morning my baby was gone. It was so unexpected I cryed myself to sleep for 2 weeks straight. It has been a little over a year since his death and I will wake up at night and think of him or cry myself to sleep becase I miss him so much. Sometimes I blame myself I think that if I hadnt gotten in such a rush that morning and put him in the house, he would still be with me today. Everyone says that I am crazy and that he was just a dog that I need to get over it but it is harder than tha he was my best friend, he was my son, he was my heart. There will never be another dog that can take his place...I just wish I could have one more day with him to run around in the yard to watch him follow me on that four-wheeler, to let him ride with me on the four-wheeler, One day so that I dont have to cry... Just one more day, but I know that if I get one more day I will just keep wishing for more. If i could have 3 wishes right now One would be that I could have one more day with him Two would be that I could know that he is ok where ever he is and Three would be that I could see him and give him that one last kiss on the head that I never got to give him because I was to big of a baby to go into the room to see him knowing it would probrobly be the last time I would see him. I miss him with all my heart and my heart is broken beyond repair...there is noone that can ever fix it or replace the spot he has in my heart.
