Ninna Wabbit

Sam once had five cats and she now only has two so you can imagine how much she loves cats. Her favourite, little Cassey aka hopalong was her favourite. She got her when Sam was five years old. Sam is an only child and Cassey was like her family, her sibling. Now Cassey is partially blind and cannot hear very well. She is very weak and suffering and has to be put down. Sam and her mother spent the night crying as they tried to say farewell.

I can only imagine the pain they must be going through losing a member of the family. Sometimes I look at my beloved Ninna and I wonder what I would do when one day I have to bid her farewell. I cannot imagine a life in which my dog is not with me. No human can love you the way a dog does. A dog doesn't care what you look like or what you do or any such minor details. All she asks is that you love her. And I do love my Ninna so much. She's the light of my eyes. She knows when I've had a bad day. She comes to me running full speed when I get home and rewards me with an endless supply of kisses. She never leaves my side as long as I'm at home. I could learn a thing or two about unconditional love from my little baby. And one day in a few years I will have to let her go and get used to living without her. I never want to lose her but lose her I will.

But till she's here with me I promise to love her just as much as she loves me although it might prove to be a difficult task because a human's ability to love is simply dwarfed by the vastness of a dog's heart. I love you my baby, may you stay forever young.
