How Odie gave me life...

Its been 3 1/2 days since Odie's passing. During this moments I admit I was devastated, depressed and most of all... sudden feeling of emptiness. It was painful, as I can barely sleep just thinking about him. Waking up in the morning with a ton on my chest. Heavy as shieat! But today I realise that I should no longer mourn about his death but instead celebrate his life. He lived a really happy and a life that is showered with love. I would have to say although he did have his naughty days but he bring nothing more but joy and love to us because he knows that we will give him back in return. Yes I do miss him but instead I will continue uphold what he taught to me...

All in his life what he showed me was to cheer up who ever is beside you. Even if it is by making a fool of yourself. Light up and protect the people you love most. The only return we want is love, appreciation and affection... and of course a good treat! Haha. Snacks, glorious food and a shelter to live in!!

What is more than life? We humans always complain about everything there is! Not enough money, stupid colleagues, idiotic bosses, need of better car, jealous of what our friends have, useless government and so on and so on. But what we did not see is what we have right in front of us, or in us and around us. Life! We should be grateful that we have the friends we have, we should be grateful for the food we have (be it good or bad), we should appreciate that we have people that care for you (be it one or millions of people), we should be happy we have a roof to give us shelter, we should be glad we have a peaceful and harmonious country and most of all we should be happy that we are ALIVE!!!

I am not here to preach about life but I am just here to spread the love of life. The greatest feeling is that you see someone/something smile and knowing that you are the one that gave them that. I've told my family, friends and most of all my girlfriend that "I dont need any expensive or high tech gadgets, nor do I need super glorious expensive meals. All I need is for you all to appreaciate what I have given to you all and for you all to love me for who I am."

Every life there is death. It is something we have to accept. Thats why we need to appreciate the ones around you WHEN THEY ARE ALIVE!!. It is in this life that we can be family, friends or associates... and we should precious it for by the time you lose them its too late...

This is what my little Odie showed me... For now I shall live my life to the fullest and appreciate what I have! I hope you all can too...

R.I.P. our Dear Dear Dear Odie

You have come into my our life and injected so much love and laughter. The journey we walk together and the hardship we walk together will sorely be missed. I miss your dreamy eyes looking at us, I miss your soft caresses, I miss your silky beautiful fur, I miss it when you greet me with your cheerful look which washes away all my stress, I miss your scratching at our carpet and at our drive way, I miss the way you look at us with your drippy mouth after drinking water, I miss your morning call when you come into our room and lick us, I miss when you run out and wait for us at the door when you want for food, I miss when you play 'hand' just so that we can give you food, I miss when you run around my feet when i stomp them, I miss when you bark at us when we sit too long in the car just so that we come out, I miss when you steal our socks in our shoes and underwear! I miss you when you stand up on our dining table just to see is there any food you can steal! I miss you when you stand in front of my bathroom door coz u want water, I miss when you rush to the back door when we say cat even when there isnt any, I miss when we say 'who is that?' and u run to our door and see, I miss when you wag ur tail when we call your name, I miss it when you come near my hand so that I can scratch and rub your head behind your ear with that satisfied look on your face, I miss when you jump and take the 'plumber card' from the gate and rip it all apart, I miss when you bark at the postmen, I miss when you sit in front of us begging for soup with your puppy dog look, I miss when you run around the house checking all areas when we come back from a long vacation, I miss when you gave us your upmost loyal company when we want some, I miss it when you snarl and growl when you have something you like! I miss when you run and smell everyone's butt, I miss when you try to put ur head under anyone that is wearing skirt, I miss when you sit or lie beside us, I miss your fresh smell when you just bathe, most of all we miss your presence! We miss you our dear dear Odie! We love you! Rest In Peace and hope you are as happy as u are where ever you are now!
