A Love Letter to My Dog
I’m writing to tell you how much I love you and how grateful I am to have you in my life. Before you joined my family, you belonged to four others. Now you have found your forever home and rescued me.
Each day with you is a blessing. Your enthusiasm, pug hugs and pug kisses bring me so much joy every morning. You always know how to make me smile. You get me up from the computer every hour or two to walk. You show me the value of play. You snuggle me at night while I watch TV. You entertain me with your antics and mischief. You love everything I cook for you. You give me purpose training you (and you have already come a long way). You have taught me not to sweat little things and to keep positive.
Although you may not be perfect, you are perfect for me.

Excerpts of Famous Love Letters
If all that I have said and done, and am still but too ready to say and do, have not sufficiently proved what my real feelings are and must be ever towards you, my love, I have no other proof to offer. Lord Byron
My heart is full of so many things to say to you – ah – there are moments when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all Cheer up – remain my true, my only treasure, my all as I am yours. Ah, wherever I am, there you are also Much as you love me – I love you more Ludwig von Beethoven
You have touched me more profoundly than I thought even you could have touched me – my heart was full when you came here today. Elizabeth Barrett Browning
My adorable and adored I have been asking myself every moment if such happiness is not a dream. It seems to me that what I feel is not of earth. I cannot yet comprehend this cloudless heaven. My whole soul is yours. Victor Hugo
Lines from Love Songs
“Forever and ever, you’ll stay in my heart/And I will love you/Forever and ever, we never will part/Oh, how I love you/Together, forever, that’s how it must be/To live without you/Would only mean heartbreak for me” Aretha Franklin – I Say a Little Prayer
“Look into my eyes, you will see/What you mean to me/Search your heart, search your soul/And when you find me there/You’ll search no more” Bryan Adams – (Everything I Do) I Do It for You
“And I hope life, will treat you kind/And I hope that you have all/That you ever dreamed of/Oh, I do wish you joy/And I wish you happiness/But above all this/I wish you love/I love you, I will always love you” Whitney Houston – I Will Always Love You
