In memory of
Born on April 30th, 2017, he came to my house, becoming one of my important family members. I loved the feeling when he leaned on my lap, reaching out his paw to touch my hand. Everything he touched was warm and kind. He was always my special, his name was —–
A Wang (阿旺)
Died of the car crash at 14:37, he was crossing the zebra line with my father. However, the white truck didn’t slow down as he saw them crossing the street. My dog sensed the danger, running in front of my father for protection. The truck hit him, but the driver didn’t stop, running over him to getaway. My dog died instantly, and the driver was long gone. That day was January 8th, 2020.

First Time on Travelling
I See You, ONLY YOU
If the dog could speak human language, he probably would say:” You are my only world. As I looking into your eyes, I see you, ONLY YOU.” That’s what I come up with until my puppy comes into my life for a while. That unique bond between humans and dogs just like the air, like the wind, like the water that friendship is everywhere.

You Always Feel Me
I looked at you, you looked me back with your concerned eyes while you tilted your head and waggled your tail a little bit. I knew you feel me.
You were Quite an Explorer
I always loved hiking with you. It seemed that nothing scares you at all. You dragged me to every corner of the world, sniffing the grass, digging the dirt, running through the bushes. And I knew that you were born ready to go on an adventure.
Always Have, Always Will
You were part of my life, which sparked my ideas for my artworks. I trained with you and learned from you. Almost every character there was you. I painted for you, I write articles about you, and I knew that you’ve already left footprints in my heart.
If you felt alone out there, read my articles about you. I’m always with you, my sweet, sweet, sweet puppy.
And I lamented the death of you by creating this short film with pain.
You always loved playing and you were nature for it. You presented us the play-bow, or even bite our flippers away from us as an invitation. Tug-O-War, Throw & Fetch, and Mop-O-War. Those were the games you loved most. And sometimes, jumped upon me, slightly bit my elbow to play catch and run.
You had a great flexible body that I failed to catch you for real. You knew it, so you let me catch you on purpose, and fell on the floor to show your belly to allow me to rub you over and hug you. And that moment, my forehead touched yours, my nose reached yours. You were smiling delightfully. As for you, my dear, it pretty simple. Smiling = Happiness.
My Fortune Cookie
There was always laughter since you came along. We loved that you were waiting at the door to welcome us as we got home, watching you jump up and down from the couch, and jumping toward us to lick our face.
I loved the feeling that I hold you in my arms and watched you fell asleep. I loved the feeling that you checked on me with a wagging tail when I was painting or working at midnight as if you were told me to rest early. I loved the feeling that you were so excited and kept running around the house when I was teaching you some new moves.
We have lots of things in our life while you only have us. You spent your entire life to be with us.
Love You 3000 Times
Every morning, you were always waiting at my bed, laying your head on the bedside, eyes on me for hours. And now, it’s my turn to memorize, to pray, to tell how much I love you. Your smile always melted my heart, offering us happiness and joy. Thank you, my little one. Thank you to choose to be our family member, to protect us, to illuminate us, to bring bliss to us.
A Wang (阿旺)
You loved running so much, it seemed that you were programmed to be a great runner. Even my father rode a bicycle failed to outrun you. That tragic day, you run faster than you used to race with us. You like a flash charged into the center of the pedestrian crossing in a blink, tried to stop the truck with your body to save my father who crosses the street without looking at each side of the road.
I was speechless and shocked as I heard the bad news. Felt down, I sat in the corner, cried, cried, and cried. My mother’s heart was broken as well. She just bought you some favorite snacks from the mall and made you a tasty dinner. My father was in deep sorrow with guilt, regretting every minute of the accident for his carelessness.
We buried you in a place I used to walk with you there. A place was full of flowers and bushes, a place where dogs running and bird twittering, a place had lots of sunshine that you always enjoyed. You were laid on your left side, facing our home as a way to be with us, a way to protect us as usual.
We have no idea how to ease the pain. Like my father says lost appetite, sleepless night, and yearns much toward you. You died young, in a human’s age, you were still a child. But you carried this responsibility to defend our family from harm. Life without you is not perfect, we couldn’t be asleep peacefully. Even at work, or on the way to work, we could see the places that turned into every piece of images where you and we took a long walk there. Without you, the house is kind of empty with loneliness and sadness. You are everywhere.
How can we stop thinking about you? We already fall in love with you, and now, we all miss you deeply and dream about you every day. I hope there’s an elixir to bring you alive or a time machine to prevent the accident on that day. However, it’s just the fairy tale. I know you love to be free, to be with nature.
Between this life and eternity, we do believe there’s the reincarnation. We hope you would have an amazing life beyond the world where there’s no hunger and no coldness at all. You’d enjoy playing games with your playmates, enjoy everything you love to do. Digging the nature, running and bathing under the sun. And one day, we shall reunite once again, I will embrace you to feel the lick on my face once more, to feel your warmth, your smell, and your heartbeat…
