Troopus Maximus von Wolfgang "Trooper" 01/22/08 - 02/28/13
In honor of my most precious, beloved, amazing Trooper:
I just cannot cope with you being gone. You were my "everything". My soul-mate, bestfriend, companion, confidant. No one has ever shown me the love you gave so freely and unconditional without end!!
This house is just not the same anymore. You "filled" it with your love, energy, excitement and happiness.
I miss you paw being on me when sitting on the floor next to my chair. You always had to be touching me. I miss you laying in my lap and putting your head on my shoulder. I miss you always having a toy in your mouth ready to play. I miss your licks. I miss playing hide-and-seek with you. My heart is broke. I miss you so terribly bad. I miss your amazing personality. You were one in a million. I miss talking to you.
I miss you when eating any food - peanut butter you always wanted to lick the knife, cheese, etc.. just waiting eagerly for me to drop something but most of all the apples and bananas that we always shared.
I miss folding clothes and you right by my side trying to sneak a sock off the bed or hoping one might fall and you would grab it and run - knowing I was right on your heels to get it back so you would not harm yourself.
I miss how excited you would get each day at dinnertime running around and so happly. I miss petting you. I miss your scent. I miss you playing in the yard and especially the snow at Christmastime. I miss you following me around the house and just being nosey - just seeing what I was doing.
Most of all I miss you nudges, nose-pokes. I miss your beautifuly dark brown almond-shaped eyes that could just speak to my soul.
I miss how happy you would get when I grabbed your leash for a walk and you would make several laps around the houlse before I could put your collar on. I miss taking you to Petco, Petsmart and shopping for toys and treats - you would always always wait patiently for a treat at checkout and took it so tenderly.
I miss you slurping up your water and then wanting to come love on me with all the wetness.
Everyday you would wake me up, now I sleep in way too late. You were there for me when my son went off to college, you were there for me when my daddy passed away. You were always strong for me to lean on and depend on. Even on my bad days - you always made me happy. Just your amazing beautiful face.
Any place I go in this house saddens me because you are not there looking at me. I miss the warmth of your body next to me. I miss rubbing your back, scratching your ears and just hugging and loving on you.
I miss how when I was standing you would sit and put your head on my stomach and look up at me with those beautiful eyes that said, "I Love You Mom".
I miss the wag of your nub. I miss how you would tilt your head to certain sounds. I miss you playing with all your toys, esp the kongs trying to get the treats out of them, but your favorite toy was your large blue bone.
You and I were suppose to grow old together. I never got to see the "gray hairs" on your muzzle. I would give up all the money and all material things I own just to have you back in my life again.
I miss your look when I took the lid off your treat jar - you would stop in your tracks and come running for your treat - so excited and happy.
Now I come home each day to this lifeless house and miss you more. I planned my life around you. Now all I have is your ashes in an urn, paw print displayed on the mantle, memories, belongings (bedding, collars, leash, toys), three photo albums.
I sleep each night with your picture under my pillow and your urn next to my heart just hoping I can dream of you and we can be together at least in my dreams.
I just miss mostly "you" for who you were - which was the most amazing, loving, happiest "person" (you were more like a person than a dog) I ever met that gave me the most happiness into my life than I could ever ask for.
To all the people on Doberman Talk, Trooper held two titles to his name, his "CGC" title and the biggest one of all was my "HEART" which he took a huge piece of it the day he left me so abruptly.
I love you to infinity and I cannot wait to see you at the Rainbow Bridge so we can be together again. I love you TROOPER always and forever in my heart, Love your Mom.
