7/4/2004 - 6/20/2017Dear Vance,

Where do I begin? Words can't describe how much love I have for you. I don't even remember what life was like before I took you home. Since October 4, 2013 you were always by my side, my partner in crime, my little buddy. I couldn't have asked for a better pup. My only regret is not adopting you sooner. I don't know what the first 9 years of your life was like, but I hope I was able to make the last 3 1/2 the best. I know they were for me and I am forever in your debt because of that.

I miss you so much, Vance. I miss the jingle of your collar, the sound of your nails ticking on the hardwood floor, the way you used to stare at me when I was getting ready in the bathroom and how you would slowly creep in until I was finally ready to take you outside for our morning walk. I miss your face and that big, goofy, beautiful smile. That smile could make even the bleakest of days bright again. I miss how you used to follow me around the house, how you would watch TV like you knew what was going on. I even miss your smelly breath! There's not one thing about you that I don't miss with my whole being, bud.

No other pet will ever replace you, Vance. You took a piece of me with you and I won't be whole until we meet again on the other side. Until then, know you will always have a home in my heart. Thank you for spending your golden years with me. Thank you for the unconditional love, compassion and affection you've shown me. Most of all, thank you for showing me what true friendship is. You will always be my best friend. My buddy, my boo-boo, my VP, my honey bunny. You will always be my #1. I love you Vance. XOXOXO
