1. Yes it felt strange and I felt lonely for a while.
After all, I was a baby and I was abandoned by my real family.
2. Please punish me for my wrong doings but don't give up on me by keeping me tied in the lawn.
I'm your child and I will love you even if you tie me up but when you do it, I feel like I was never a part of you.
3. You don't know or may not have noticed but whenever you leave from home for a few days, I can't eat and sleep.
And each time I hear any little noise, my ears go up hoping that it's you.
4. I understand I'm not allowed inside shops or grocery stores but please don't leave me alone on the street till you shop because you don't know what I go through in that time.
I feel scared and abandoned.
5. Please understand that like humans, I need some alone time too.
I think and I have mood swings but I won't like it if you're sad because I'm like this sometimes. It's a feeling I can't describe but please try and understand my language.
6. Don't remain angry with me for too long.
If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be living this life. I can't see you of all people, being angry with me because it will kill me a little inside.
7. Trust me as much as I trust you, I'll never let you down.
I'll guard you with all my strength and heart. You mean the world to me and I can prove it.
8. I'm a friend that you will cherish forever, I promise you that. Walk with me, spend time with me, you'll know.
So what if I'm only there for less than a quarter of your life? I will make sure that each moment that I spend with you was more than (just) worth it.
9. Love me as much as you loved me when I was a cute little puppy.
I understand I'm old and grumpy now but your one touch brightens up my whole day and I have looked forward to it the most each day of my life.
10. Sadly, it's time to go but remember, I will never forget you and you were my only family. Being there for you is all I know and I wish I could be around for a little longer to make some more outstanding memories.
I know you tried your best to protect me and I'm sorry I have to leave you this way. But trust me, it's not the end mummy and daddy, I hope we cross paths in my next life.
Yes it felt strange and I felt lonely for a while.
