A good-bye to Simon

Last summer I lost one of my best friends. His name was Simon.

I met Simon when he was nine weeks old. I was only two! We played. We went on Walks together. We hung out. We were best friends.


More recently Simon's people moved further away from us and I didn't see him very much.


I also didn't get to see Simon as much because Ojo came to live with us, and Ojo and Simon were not friends. Ojo zoomed too fast and Simon did not like this. He would snap and bark at her to slow down. But this made her nervouse and she zoomed even faster. So our people did not ask Ojo and Simon to hang out together. This means I didn't see Simon as much either.

But still I loved him.



A year ago my friend Simon started feeling unwell. His people tried doing all sorts of things to help him. He had to make many visits to Vet. But by the summer time his people knew he had a Big Bad Thing growing in his body, and it was time to say good-bye.

It has taken me a long time write about Simon because I am very sad. My person is very sad too.

Simon walked over the rainbow bridge last August. He was nine years old. Apart from Ojo, he was my best friend.

My person drew a picture of him, and gave it as a gift to his people.


We all loved Simon very much. Simon, I will see you again on the other side of the bridge. Thank you for being my friend. We miss you!

We know how sad it is to lose a great friend....even one you don't see much. How thoughtful of your talented person to make the portrait for Simon's family. We're sure they'll be happy. (We think Simon looks like a Kelpie.)

We're so sorry to hear about your good friend Simon. It's a shame that he was still so young too. Sending lots of hugs and POTP.

I am sorry about the loss of your friend. You've written a beautiful tribute and given a very thoughtful gift that I know will be a treasure, just as your memories are of a pup that left much too soon.
