Christmas.

Love. Happiness. Warmth. Closeness. Family.

Christmas has always been my favorite festival/holiday/day [whatever you want to call it].

This year,I wish that I could turn back the hands of time. 

I know we’re supposed to be forward-looking. I am a staunch believer of “Everything happens for a reason”. 

It’s been 12 years since a tiny Shih Tzu walked into my life. 2001. I was 11 then. She was 2 months old.

She was definitely one of a kind, not your typical kind of yappy Shih-Tzu. As far as I remember, she seldom barked, leaving that duty to my other Shih Tzu.

I still remember vividly the time when she was sitting next to me and watching me intently while I was having breakfast (Nasi Lemak). Suddenly, she just swooped in and snatched my chicken. All thoughts of breakfast were put aside as I had to wrestle the chicken from her tiny, but incredibly strong, jaws. Lol! Instead of scolding her, I just laughed. I was probably one of the culprits that spoiled her, but hey! don’t all of us have a soft spot for that someone/something?

Oh! and she hated people slipping their hands under the sheets! It probably seems like an underground monster-ish thing to her and lo and behold! She’d turn into a beast then! 

Anyways, it still came as a shock when her health deteriorated in one day. As a matter of fact, I’m probably still in shock as well. 

I know there’s going to be people who’d think I’m being too sentimental over the loss of a dog. To me, as long as your love is genuine, it does not matter to whom/what you give it to.

I’m just really, really sorry that I never got to spend enough time with her since I started work. I’m sorry that I never got to go through our routine game as often as I’d like to. I can’t even remember the last time I had that game with her. I’m sorry that I haven’t brought her out for car rides in a long time.

I’m sorry that I never told you all I wanted to say.I hope that you didn’t have to suffer. I hope you’re at a better place now.

I just want to Thank You for entering our lives! Everyone here misses you. I Love You Suki.
