Letters to Hana

Our Dearest Hana,

Today is Valentine's Day and everywhere is full of cards, roses and candle night dinners but today is also the day you left us over to the rainbow bridge.

Hana girl, we miss you a lot and we still miss you a lot!!!

We hope you're happy and running free with Laura over the bridge. Life is different without two of you nowadays, please tell Laura that we really miss her monotonous barking.

Hana, thank you so much for giving us your precious puppy who is not really a puppy but a beautiful young lady now. Eva is growing up well; she is a little bit naughty and crazy, quite barky and jumpy, a good zoomer and a fast and greedy eater; she is also pretty understanding, quite clever, hard working when there is plenty of treats and she is a sweetie pie at home. She is spoilt but well-loved!!!

We love you, Hana dear!

Lots of love, licks and slobbers,
Mummy, Daddy, Rosie, Mika and Eva


Dear Mama,

I don't really know how to start this letter  because I don't think I really remember you as I was just a tiny little one when you left me.

However, I also feel that I know my mama very well. Thanks to those humans at home and Uncle Mika; they always talk about you. They say we are so alike but we are also so different from each other too!!! It sounds weird, doesn't it?

They say you were gentle but I'm rough, you were well-behaved but I'm naughty, you're taller and longer but I'm shorter and shorter, you're an angel but I'm a little demon; however, both of us are beautiful and fluffy, both of us adore foods and we eat fast, we are brave because we dare to challenge the God of Thunder, we both run fast and we both bark, oh there is something which always makes our humans amazed is we have no problem of taking meds, be it in syrup form or tablets. I think we used to be a good mother and daughter team   : )

I remember I liked to walk beside you, played with you and slept beside you as I always felt safe whenever I was with my dear mama.
I miss you a lot, Mama Hana. Sometimes, I think I see you and Grandma Laura at night because both of you are the biggest, brightest and the most beautiful stars in the sky.

Guess what, mama? I think there are something that I can do well but I doubt you knew anyone of them, that is TRICKS!!! You won't believe it that I've learned so many of them and I keep on practising them because once I do it well, I got super duper delicious yummy treats. I'm a very hard working girl too, I watch the house and do my daily duties diligently, unlike Uncle Mika, I never fall asleep when I'm guarding the fort.

By the way, I'm 14 months old and turning 15 months old soon. I'm a big girl now and I've beautiful coat just like you. I guess you are proud of me, aren't you?

I love you, mama. I love you so SO much, mama Hana!!! Oh I miss you now!!!

Zillions of licks,
Your little Eva girl

What beautiful letters these are. When you said you miss her barks, it made me remember to be thankful for Mocha Barney, even if she barks all the time.

Hana must be smiling at rainbow bridge.

Don't worry my friend....
I'm sure Hana is watching over you as you grew. Your letter made Jasmine felt a little sad cause she misses her babies so much but cant even see or kiss them like what you're having right now. Nevertheless, we all know, and hope they'll be fine and happy wherever they are :)

Happy Val'z day!
