My little Kisses will never kiss me again

She was just six weeks when this little puff ball caught my eye. For the next few years she was at my side regardless of my destination. On business trips, the office, shopping. She was so loving, affectionate; wanting nothing more than to be touched. I love my Kisses.

As time passed her personality was unique. Completely loyal and yes very jealous.

She was always in excellent health and I never had any issues with her. She was loved by so many and spoiled. But then again she was my little girl.
At age 12 her life became more complicated. A bladder infection, displaced discs, failing heart was part of her daily life. It pained me to see her like this. I provided the very best in vet care and she improved. But steroids and pain meds were part of her life now.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon without any warning she began to yelp loudly; the pain was evident. Later the vet determined that her hip bone came out of the socket, her heart was enlarged and she was in plenty of pain. During the exam the vet managed to restore the hip into its socket, medicated i took her home. I new time was not on her side. She could barely stand.

Sunday came and I visited my parents. Kisses was spoiled with treats. Only hours later as I placed her onto the grass she again yelped in severe pain. The vet again determined that the hip bone was displaced. With a bad heart and no promise that an operation would improve her life, I made the single most difficult decision of my life. Did I do the right thing? I hope so. I have lost my little Kisses. My pain although not physical cannot be measured. Your name had been etched on my body many years ago Kisses, the memory of you forever in my heart. I Love you Kisses.

I am still weeping, I have never experienced love from a human being though I sought it all my life, but I have been loved as you were by Little Kisses. Your letter has somehow helped me as I am still in grief that seems to have no end in the loss of my little one.

I can only have faith that one day on the new earth promised in Isaiah that who will joyfully kiss you, and feel your warm caress but your loving Little Kisses. God will not forget, for He is faithful, He sees your tears, feels your grief, for remember how that even King David in the Old Testament was filled with anger when he was told by the prophet Nathan how that a poor old man's beloved pet (a lamb) had been taken from him. King David was inspired of God, and wrote many psalms, he had been a shepherd, and because he loved his sheep God saw in David a man He could entrust with an earthly kingdom. In fact, it is said in holy writ, that David had a heart after God's own heart. Be faithful Dad, and one day you will see the one who loved you with no infirmities, just a heart that loves you with every beat of its heart.
