I miss the way you never bit me, even when I did so many things to you.
Threw you in the pool, placed you on top of my cupboard, spun you around in circles, covered your eyes with bandages, pulled your tail, dropped you suddenly for no reason, sat on you (not really).
Your tail always wagged, you always loved me no matter what.
I miss the way you were always there for me.
When I had fights with my mum, I always had someone to cling on to, to hug my tears away.
When I had a shower, and was scared, I always had you with me, sleeping there, staring at me, always there.
When I studied for my HSC, my stress levels reached high levels, you were always there, right beneath my feet, snuggling me with your warmth.
Whenever I slept late, whether it was because I was studying or just on the internet, you were always there, sleeping or staring at me.
Whenever I didn't want to go to sleep, because I was scared, I would always sneak you into my room, onto my bed, put my arms around your soft fur, and would not feel scared ever again.
Whenever I was cold (as rare as that may be) you were there for me, like a everlasting hot water bottle that never failed to warm me up.
Whenever I was super bored, just wanted to go for a walk, you would always come along, your tail wagging, your face so happy.
I loved your many eccentricities.
I loved how you tried to communicate with me, you little barks that seemed like you were trying to say "your confusing me" "I love you" "I'm excited" "I'm hungry" "I want to go for a walk" "Open the door".
You could sit, you could stand, you could even play dead.
I loved how you always scratched your ear, as gross as it may be, and as smelly as it was.
I loved how you would have diahhera then drag your butt on the concrete, leaving a track.
I loved how you smelt.
I loved your fur.
I loved your tail.
I loved your eyes, even when they were covered up by your long fur.
I loved how you would bark in confusion, start scratching and pulling me when I played dead.
I loved how you drank out of the swimming pool (although I stopped you straight after)
I loved how you could eat anything, cucumbers, salads, vegetables and various fruits.
I loved how you would tip toe to hunt for birds, but always missed cause you weren't fast enough.
I loved how you got tired so easily from a heavy walk, would just sit there, and refuse to move, until I drag or carry you.
I loved how you would whine, whenever we had to put you enclosed somewhere, after you had a bath.
I loved your paws, so big and fluffy, with a black dot on one of them.
I loved the way you walked, the way your bum swayed, it was so cute and bouncy.
I loved how you would chase after a ball, that never got thrown.
I loved how whenever we played hide and seek, you would always find me first.
I loved the way you loved me.
I loved you so much.
