My Best Friend...

by Chrissie
(Swannanoa, NC USA)

I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago, and my boyfriend came home with "Ko-Ko" a small 6 week old Yorkie .

I never thought I would like a small dog, but this dog would look at me and with his personality he pretty much made me fall in love with him.

He laid with me through all my cancer treatments and was with me no matter where I went in my house or outside.

I always looked forward to coming home to him when he couldn't go with me. I never had a friend who was so loyal and loving "un-conditionally". He became everything to me.

I recently lost him when he went to the road, which was unusual. I believe he may have been chasing a squirrel, he loved to do that. But he darted in front of a car and was instantly gone.

It has been a little over two weeks and I still miss him so much. I have an order in to get another one from his original parents, and I look forward to it, but I don't know that there will ever be a dog that can take his place in my heart. I get very lonely without him.

I believe he helped me through my cancer treatment and I like to think God took him and his spirit to help someone else who may be going through a difficult time like I did.
