❀

Today marks eight months since you went away. There isn’t a day when we don’t think of you! Laki (luh-key) was a very special dog. I loved to call him little brother, little man, and my shadow. He followed everyone, but he and I had a special connection. I was very overprotective of him, partly because he was quite small in stature. He was our first male dog. He loved taking naps and sitting on everyone’s laps while we did our homework.

His name came from the Tagalog word malaki which means big. But since he was small, the name fit perfectly. Our dad came up with his name. We had some trouble deciding, but what do you expect from teenagers. Indecisive! Lol.

I miss you every day, Laki. I hope you’re enjoying the great big sky. May there always be treats, lots of food, and comfy blankets around you.

I love you always.
