Initially, your presence was unexpected and unwelcome, but you looked at me through kind, anticipating eyes. Your loyal, friendly, and obedient demeanor embodied the golden color of your coat. Your funny antics of writhing on your back with all four-paws in the air always made me smile and laugh! You stayed playful-ready even to the end. Forever in my heart, a bright regard you hold; I miss you dearly, my beloved companion.
