Words will not come. Kind people will tell me to think of all the good and happy times. They were all good and happy times so the missing is made worse and the thinking brings me to tears, as there is nowhere else to go. Martha, Martha, Martha ………….


Roytan Ariadne….Esme

What can I say through my tears this morning, trying to keep a smile on my face for her, so that she would know that everything was alright. She was pretty, talented, kind, and the happiest little dog I shall ever have as a friend. If she had been a person, she would have always found something good in everyone. I can remember writing the lines below on her page. I could write more. I could go on and on writing all the memories. At 13 and a quarter her heart could not keep up with all the things she still wanted to do, maybe she had given of it too freely. I miss your eyes and your wagging tail. I love you Esme.
