Two weeks ago, my family went on vacation and
put her in the kennel.

my bed with me.
One day when I was packing up my drums to go
to a band practice,

She was my sister and best friend,
but we had to have her put to sleep on May 30th,
I will never forget that day I came home from school and I got ready for work.
Sandy was following me all over the house like she always did.
She looked at me with her lovable brown eyes and her floppy ears perking up
as if she can still hear me but she was deaf.
But I always knew that we understood each other with no words.
We can read each other's minds.
I know what she was thinking and she knew what I was thinking.
After I got dressed I hugged her and said I love you
and carried on with getting ready to walk to work.
I left the house feeling whole but as I walked down the street my mom said
"Aren't you going say goodbye?" My friend and I both yelled "Bye".
thought she was talking about saying goodbye to her, my mom, but she meant
I finally realized what she said when I came
home from work.
Sandy had a vet check/appointment a 4:30 pm and
it was now about 6:00 pm.
My heart was not whole anymore. It felt as if someone was ripping
it little by little.
As the seconds, then minutes, that turned into
hours I sat in my window
waiting for my aunt's van to pull into the driveway and Sandy
run out of the door
when she opens it and I'd have my best friend
that didn't happen. I cried all night long
and the next day my mom made me go to school and work.
I did nothing in school, but sit at my desk.
I didn't do my schoolwork for the rest of the week and I was slacking off
All I could think about was Sandy, my Sandy.
But still to this very day I feel sad and ashamed that I didn't say a good
and I pray just about every night and say I'm sorry and I love her.
I stay up all night till about two or three in the morning.
I watch TV and wait for her to sit on my lap but she will not come.
RIP Sandy, I will always love you.

Roscoe and Max by Renee, Age 13
had a dog named Roscoe. When he was only four years old he died.
I wasn't very emotional because I was only seven
when he died.
Once I got older, I felt really guilty about
not feeling very sad about his death.
Anyway, I missed him very much, but I didn't think I could survive
without a dog,
so everyday after school I would look at the
newspaper ads for a dog.
there was a dog that sounded like he would fit our lifestyle.
He was a Lab/German Shepherd/Husky mix.
He was not the most wonderful dog in the world,
but to me he was terrific.
He was actually a pretty bad dog.
He chewed on everything, he barked at night,
he didn't know any tricks.
I still loved him.
One day Max started coughing. It was so horrible.
If bears could cough, that's what it would sound
I stayed up half the night comforting him and
hand feeding him.
Max died at age two. Age two! Why?
Why did God have to take him away?
He was a troublemaker but he was my dog!
I miss him so much and even though it has been
over four years,
I still cry when I think about him.

Age 13 Indiana USA
he wanted to go outside, he scratched on the door.
And he would always leave marks on there and
my mom would get so mad.
When he got wet, he smelled like stinky feet.
I used to hate it when he got a bath.
He liked to take a bath with bubbles, because he would eat them.
He was very funny.
When he saw me get off from the bus stop, he
would always start barking,
jumping up and down and wagging his little tail, and when I finally
got over there,
he would try to smother me in licks!
The color of his eyes are a light green, but
when you take a picture they are red.
And that is my favorite color!
When he would bark, he sounded very rough, but
he was a big, big baby.
He was a white, full-blooded Boxer. My dog, he
was the greatest.

that it would be a joke but it wasn't. It was real.
Maka left the world but not my heart.
Maka was the best puppy in the world to me.
Away by Leslie, Age 13
I lost my dogs
not in the way that you think.
I lost them because I had to come to Los Angeles, but I use to live
My dogs could not come with me so they had to stay with my grandma,
so I am here and they are far from me.
Jessie by Marie, Age 12 Pennsylvania USA
I had a dog her name was Jessie. I miss her a lot. She died April 2 1996.
Jessie had beautiful diamond blue eyes and she
was a Siberian Husky.
She was only one year old. Her fur coat was reddish brown, gray,white
and a little black.
She was the best-looking dog I have ever had!
My dog Jessy was messy but she is the most lovable
dog I have ever had.
She loved to play fetch and run loose and we could always cuddle.
She is and was the best dog ever. I will never
Goodbye by Alec, Age 11
grandma had a dog that was as sweet as Sugar. That's why we named her Sugar.
My grandma got her from the town animal shelter.
I think she was a dog of the street and was
going to have puppies. When my grandma got her, she had already had her puppies. All of those puppies and Sugar got given away. My grandma said Sugar was sick when she was given away so she could be dead now. I never got to say goodbye to most of the
pups and Sugar. If you guys see this, goodbye :(
of those dogs got given away except one that my bro and I kept.
His name is Odie. All the dogs where mixes of terriers and other breeds of
I also want to say goodbye to our old German Shepherd, Davidson
who was given to the pound a long time ago.
I hope he found a good family and lived a good life. Goodbye to you all. :(
Zola by Gillian, Age 11
once had a dog named Zola, but when I was about five years old
she got a disease and had to be put to sleep
by our vet.
When I got home from school that day Zola was
so I just knew then that she was gone forever.
My Puppy by Katie, Age 14
I was little, you used to always play with me,
you used to run circles around me and never knock me over.
My first word was "puppy", and that's
what you were.
I have so many happy memories of you and I, and
I just want to say
that I'm so sorry that I didn't come with that
and I have to believe that you know that I love
I miss you so much, and I never really got to
so, this is how I'm doing it -
farewell, my puppy, and until we meet again, my sweet...
My Pup by Lauren, Age 12 Australia
day my mum and dad went to their friend's place
and they came back with a two month Golden Retriever.
She had a hole in her heart.
She was a lovely pup, but one month ago she died
in her sleep.
She was only fifteen months. We were all sad
We got a German Shepherd pup, five weeks old.
Blue by Kimberly, Age 11
New York USA
Blue got hit by a car, I thought I would never feel the same again.
I would cry a lot.
My dad said it was time to let go so we buried her in my back yard.
Blue was a gray and white Husky.
She had one blue eye and one brown. I would play with her a lot.
I will always remember you, Blue. I hope I will see you someday.
Sophina by Tiffany, age 12 Virginia USA
little baby girl, almost a human, it seemed.
You were better than any other breed.
Your sweet pushed-in face and your once buldging eyes,
for you there is no compromise.
Your collar will never get thrown away,
I'll keep it with me until my dying day.
I know it seems silly to love a dog so much,
but you were my best friend, you brought me luck.
I'd recognize that bark anywhere,
I can sometimes smell you, it's like you're still here.
But, I know you're gone, that's how life is,
but I'll await the day I see you again.
Much love to you Sophina, Tiffany.
Puppy by Schae, Age 11
had a dog. Her name was Puppy.
She was the best dog you could ever had.
She ran away before her fourth birthday.
She never came back, and we looked, but couldn't`t find her anywhere.
We played ball and rolled in the grass and other fun stuff.
I really hate people who take your dog and think that you wouldn't care,
but you do care, you really do. I miss Puppy so much,
and the dogs I have now are nothing like her.
They jump on you when you want to go outside and they are bad.
Puppy was good and she listened. I cry every time I think of her.
And one day I wish she would come back. I really loved Puppy,
she was the best dog in the whole wide world.
This is for you my friend...
Sleep, sleep rest in peace till we meet again.
Always and forever yours, Schae
I love you so so so much Puppy!)
My Dog By Jadie, Age 11 Richmond Texas USA
I was younger, I had a dog that my parents found
and she would chew up my toys.
So my mom gave her to a man and it was sad for me.
So I hope a lot of you take care of your dog before you lose them.
My dog now is sick...tears.
was a brown Lab huge and a dog I won't forget.
Jiggers by Kristin, Age 17
dog, Jiggers (Border Collie/Brittany Spaniel), was very special to me.
He died about a month ago but I still talk to
him and know he's there by my side.
I would of laid my life down for him. He was
a very smart dog.
He listened really well too. I wouldn't have
traded my dog for anything.
He's very unique and special
and one of these days I will be reunited with him in heaven.
Gab by Ericka, Age 14
had a yellow Lab named Gab. I loved Gab.
We let him run around the yard every once in a while.
One night Gab was running loose and a car hit him!
We jumped in the van, loaded Gab, and took him to the vets.
They didn't think he would make it. We stayed a little while.
There was nothing we could do!
On Jan. 8, 2000 at 9:05 I lost my baby.
I will miss him, but I hope the angels up in heaven are playing with him
and who knows, maybe I'll see him again someday!
