This is a final letter to my dog "Kutter" who was an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie Mix. He was 13yrs old and we lost him Sat. to a brain tumor, that caused uncontrollable seizures. I am sending this out because I want everyone who cares, to know what a great dog he was, and it is healing to the soul to share his love with others. I thank God for his gift of my "Kutter" he made my journey this far a little more bearable. My Dearest Kutter, My heart is so heavy with the sadness of your loss.Protector of our home,Guardian of your pack,lover of babies (of all species).We miss you so........ I guess I always knew this day would come for us. I just thought we would have more time. I miss you so.......I miss that cold nose and wet tongue that always wiped away my tears when I would get upset. You would push your way into my embrace and insist on comforting me, untill the tears would stop. I miss you so.........I thank you for all your years of service as my protector. I always felt safe when you were with me. I miss you so..........I thank you for the endless hours of therapy,as you sat and quietly listened to your mom tell you all her woe's. You would just lick my face as if to say "feel better now?" I miss you so..............I thank you for always welcoming our four legged guest into our home. Most of them adored you. You took them all instride, as they crawled all over you,burrowed under you,used you as a pillow (you were so soft),used you as a step stool and you in all your gentleness would only sigh and move to a new location. To which they would follow and the game would start all over again. I miss you so........You brought so much to our lives, there is just no way to put it all on paper, but I will carry you in my heart until one day our paths will cross again on the Rainbow Bridge where I will come to collect all my little ones before going home to my fathers house in heaven. I miss you so..... My sweetest "Cookie Kutter"You were my angel in waiting and Sat. November 15th you received your "Wings".I miss you so......... love your Mom and Biggest Fan

You honoured your companion with a beautiful letter. Thank you for sharing some of his story. I think most of us have experienced the grief of that loss and know how you are feeling. With sympathy to you at this sad time.
