Tito, the best dog ever!
It’s time now to talk about my dog. To be honest he wasn’t mine, he was my dad’s. But we still loved each other and I always felt as if he was mine.
I’ve got something else to say about ownership because I really don’t like the fact that we call our selfs owners of our dogs, I really hate it. Me and Tito were palls, brothers and we walked together for almost seventeen years.
He passed away the 1 of April 2019. It was really hard to loose him because I grew up with him and I loved him to bits. His eyes were incredible. I could see my expression reflected in his eyes. It’s true that dogs look like those who take care of them (finding another way to say it rather than owners) and it was clear to me. He was with me always and he even ended up on some songs of mine and videos. He lived all the way through for me to record my entire discography.
I think I was a bit prepared for it for the fact that I moved into another house since my baby was born and Tito stayed with my mother. The house where I went to live was my father in law’s and no animals were allowed in. The only thing that made me accept this situation was the fact that he was with my mother and he would have been a good company for her too.
My sister still complains about how I managed the situation because she had to look after him. I know I could have done better but what is done is done but I miss him so much.
A dog’s life is to short and it’s not fair. Or maybe it’s a way for us to understand that life flies away so quickly.
Tito taught me a lot of things like his love for life, his love for me, and his eyes that could talk more than a thousand words and that were really a reflection of his soul. There is so much you can understand from someones eyes.
Tito passed away in my arms and I was lucky enough to get back home in time. I was writing a book in that period and I was sitting at the table writing a letter to my daughter telling her who Tito was and what he’d meant for me. Some days earlier he had stoped eating and I was just waiting for that moment to come to say goodbye. I lied down with him, his heart stopped beating. The last breaths and then he was gone.
A new phase of my life was starting, a phase without Tito with whom I grew up and spent seventeen years of this journey.
Tito, the best dog ever!
