Comet - December 6, 2001 - June 19, 2018
“Hey, buddy.” That’s what I always said to him when nobody was listening. For 16 1/2 years I had the pleasure of sharing a life with my furry little buddy, Comet. I named him after a reindeer since he was a gift for Christmas. Before I went to pick him out of the litter, I was SURE I wanted a girl dog. At the very last second, I changed my mind and asked for a boy dog. I had my eye on the one who was wildly playing with an empty milk carton. (Turned out this would be his favorite toy for many years!) He loved to play, race around in circles, and eat. My favorite thing was when I would play an instrument or sing, he would immediately come to where I was and lay down at my feet so he could listen! He was my biggest fan; I know it! We had a good run, little guy. He was NEVER in a bad mood in a single day of his life. Always happy and smiling, even after he got a stick caught in his eye. Even after injuring his leg and having to stay off of it for a month due to running after a squirrel too quickly.
Even after being jumped by said squirrel. Even after trying to run across the street in the rain and being pulled back onto the sidewalk by his tail because it’s all I could grab before he ran into traffic. Even after Papáchased him around the kitchen because he escaped his crate. Even after becoming sick after getting into my valentines candy. He made life awfully exciting! I will miss the little tap-tap-tap of your feet on the wood floor. I will miss how you’re always underfoot during meal prep. I will
miss your little toothy grin. I will miss how you make my nieces laugh and “bark” at you. I will miss how you used to put your chin on the couch where we were sitting before you stopped being able to see. I will miss how you always knew when someone was sad or not feeling well... you would always know and come find us just to sit by us and keep us company. I will just miss you. I could go on but I’ll stop there... Rest well, little buddy.
