    Sebastian, you little bastard.

    It's been almost 10 years since you passed but I still miss you. You stood by me for 18 years. I could never own another dog again.

    I go to college 22 hours away from where I live. This is my first year here, so obviously, it was a big change for me. But I don't even really miss my family, which I know sounds horrible, I just miss my doggy.

    .. She was the only one who was always there for me. She loved me no matter what I said or did. Now I don't know what to do with this pain... It hurts so very much! I'm lonelier then ever without her here to comfort me... RIP my sweet friend who I will always remember.
