My little dog passed away earlier this week. She was a pretty big part of my life for being so small, and I wish I could deal with it better, but honestly I’m still kind of in shock about the whole thing.

Hildi was…my best friend. She was the best, best little dog. Full of attitude and personality and enthusiasm for pretty much anything I ever asked of her. She stayed by my side through the worst years of my life. …I don’t think I would still be here without her.
