I've had you since you were a month old and didn’t have any teeth.
I remember the sleepless nights during the first few weeks.
How I had to turn your puppy food into mush with milk.
How I'd make a perfect little cozy bed for you, but you'd snuggle
into me, falling asleep.
How we grew up learning how to communicate
with each other without a single word being spoken.
I wonder where the 13 years have gone. And now, I want to borrow some more time.
Some more time to pet your soft fur, more time to hold you and kiss you.
More time to take you on car rides and walks.
I promise I'll make your last few years of life, as beautiful as the first ones.
I love you, Pinto
