Dedicado a Rita
dedicated to Rita.
You came into my life when I needed you most, a time when only your company made me happy. It was that beautiful day where I could only observe your beautiful black eyes, and that shiny fur that made you look splendid, since then I knew that I had found an excellent and faithful friend. I still remember the first time we were together, you just sniffed me and walked away, you didn't let me caress you, you didn't let me get close, you didn't trust me and I understood perfectly, since you had a great temper. Temperament that was falling little by little, because you realized that I was only there to love and protect you. The first time you wanted to play with me was by bringing me a sock in your mouth, honestly I didn't know where you got it from, or where it was... I could only see that you played like a baby when they give him a toy for the first time. I know you perfectly, I know when you are happy and sad, when you want to eat or when you want to play, I have learned all your facets little by little and I am glad to be aware of what you feel. I really admire your way of being, and you are a dog that is always there, looking at me when I study, next to my bed when I sleep or waiting attentively behind the door to give me a kiss when I get home from university, you just sit my side and you stay with me without expecting anything in return, it's something I truly appreciate and fills my soul with pure love, it's just little things that make my life the best ♡
Today I realized that your features are changing a little more every day, your mustache is becoming whiter and your little eyes are a little droopy, but nothing happens that way it should be. The only thing I hope is that you never stop smiling, no one and nothing can take it away from you. Keep running around the house, keep looking for socks to play with, and keep being so naughty, just keep being you.
I want you to know dear Rita, that I will always be by your side, to take care of you, love you, protect you and pamper you, I only hope that you can be with me for many years to continue enjoying such valuable company. I can only thank you for being so loyal, for taking care of me, and for always making me smile. I love you.
