I fall in love with every kid I take care of but some become my surrogate soulmates. Petey was just such a very special boy. He was already an elderly gentleman when I started daily visits, but I could see at times the spark of the younger Pete, when he gallumped after his toy froggie, or pitter pattered with his back feet when I scratched his butt. Petey and I went through a whole year of seasons, from the rain in spring, when he had to don the hated yellow rain jacket, to the summer when we lazed in the plush grass of the backyard, him rolling around on his back and me snapping picture after picture to capture his silliness. Fall was a time for watching the leaves fall and walks through the neighborhood to see the many houses being constructed, and winter's chilly bite, when I made trails through the snow for him to use and we snuggled on the couch to warm up. I was given the great privilege of being with Petey when he left this world. It was terribly heart wrenching but a gift to give his precious face one last kiss and see the peace and love settle over him. I took some of his energy with me and it's safe in my heart. And when my heart hurts that he's gone, I know it's him letting me know he's still here with a wag of his tail. You are one of the true great dogs, Peter, and I love you to the moon!
