Best Qualities

She was so affectionate, cuddly and innocent. She always knew when I was upset and would climb all over me & her smile.

Growing up I wasn't allowed a dog due to moving around so often so when my family and I settled in Wollongong when I was 10 my parents finally allowed me to have my own dog. My family and I somehow ended up with 2 beautiful Cavilier King Charles Spaniels, Meggie and Georgia. I'd never loved anything as much as them and I did everything with them. When I was 17 my house was destroyed in a fire, Meggie didn't make it out. Having Georgia was the only thing that kept me going when I had nothing else. She became my reason to live. She made me happy. She was with me half my life. She was my everything. I told her all my secrets, if I ever went anywhere she was alongside me, even to Woolworths, the mall, the beach, everywhere. I couldn't go a day without taking at least one photo of her. She used to sleep in bed with me every night, if I showered I took her in with me. I couldn't even go to the bathroom without her waiting outside the door for me. Whenever I was down I'd just cuddle her and I could forget that the outside world even existed. On the 1st of November I woke up and she wasn't with me, as I went out looking for her I realized the screen door was open, I ran outside, seeing her up the road I started running towards her screaming her name, she turned to look at me with her tail wagging as she started crossing a busy road. She was struck by a car and despite 3 hours trying to save her at the Vets I had to say goodbye to my best friend. She took a piece of my heart with me and it's killing me. After surviving a house fire it seemed so unfair for my baby to hit by a car, that didn't even stop. She was 10 1/2 years old. I blame myself for what happened and I don't see how I'm supposed to keep on going without her. I know dogs don't live forever but I wasn't ready. It all happened in 30 seconds and I couldn't save her. I miss her so much. She never did a thing wrong and she was the most patient, loveable, affectionate dog I've ever known. She even used to have her own little dance she performed for me whenever she wanted anything. She got me through so much and now I have to get through this without her. I'm glad my Georgie Porgie never got to see how much it broke my heart to lose her.
