I'll miss you my little buddy. I loved every minute we shared. You were worth every waking second, every bottle feed that lasted for an hour, ever break at work coaxing you to feed, every bath, every look into your beautiful blue eyes. I'll miss walking past you and seeing you looking up at me, longing for me to hold you just a little bit longer. I'll miss your cute little waddle and bunny hop. I'll miss holding you while you "played" with my finger. You definitely left all four paw prints on my heart. I was so happy when you made it to 602 grams and your eyes began to sparkle a little bit more. Perhaps that was your way of telling me you would be okay, that you knew your peace was coming and you were ready to say good bye. It was just me that wasn't ready. I had always clung to the hope you would be my little "pocket pet" for life, despite knowing in my heart that your life would be shorter than most.
I prefer my ignorance, the rose-coloured glasses I wear, and yes; the blinders. I love having blinders on. Those blinders help me stay focused and living in the moment. If I though ahead and decided your fate in advance I wouldn't have had my hope and without Hope, I am nothing.
I love you so much Woody, you changed my world for three months and I'll cherish those memories forever.
I am grateful to God for every rescue He sends my way, whether I hold them for only an hour, or if have the joy of finding them a forever home. Every rescue is a blessing and a miracle, and for that, I am thankful.
