Louie Mechtenberg

Dear Louie,

As I begin to write this, it's been 12 days 2 hours and 20 minutes since you've crossed rainbow bridge. Since you've left, a piece of my heart has been missing. The halls are quiet and I long to see your sweet face. Words can't quite articulate exactly how much I love you and how much I miss you. As I sit here trying to compile a way to summarise your life and the impact you've had on me; and as tears flood my eyes, all I can do is think about the things I miss about you.

So with that...

I miss that beagle head tilt with those short ears.

I miss your little kinked tail wags.

I miss the way you would army crawl to the head of my bed for morning snuggles.

I miss petting your silky soft ears.

I miss giving you kisses right on your forehead, on your little white star and in between your beautiful brown eyes.

I miss the sound of your feet prancing across the floor- especially the prance when you just did something naughty.

I miss the way you'd look back and smile at me while we'd go for a walks.

I miss the way you'd rather sit with mum on the bench than play with the other dogs at the doggie park.

I miss the way you'd greet me at the door with tail wags, cries of joy and zoomies around the house.

I miss the way you always hunted and stole mumma's chapstick in the most Snoopy- Beagle way.

I miss watching you curl up in a ball and sleep so sweet.

I miss the way you'd perk up for "walk", "outside" and "car ride".

I miss the way you'd paw at me when you wanted more pets.

I miss you sitting on the backrest of the couch like a cat.

I miss watching you smile in my rear view mirror during your car rides.

I miss the way you'd dance after I'd give you a bully stick.

...I could list hundreds of more things I miss but most all I miss your unconditional love. You will forever be mumma's best boy. I love you forever and always to the moon and back. I can't wait until we will be reunited once again baby boy. You were only here for a short 7 years, but you forever left your paw prints on my heart.

Love always,


Louie "Satchmo" Armstrong
