What’s Up, Players?!
G’Day Gamer Gals & Guys!
We made it to Friday!
Now you know you can do anything! 🙂
As you also know Friday is “RUvealed” on Ru’s Daily Blog – brought to you by Saljack Enterprises!
And it’s the day I open my arms to you and lovingly bring you into my warm embrace.. 🙂
And we laugh and have fun and you get to know more abut me!
But before we continue on…
I know you all have been eagerly awaiting the last installation of the “tragic love story” we began on last week’s RUvealed.
And what a hard time to be patient from one Friday to the next!
I am so proud of you all!
But the wait is over…and your questions will be answered today.
If you recall, there was a girl who wanted a best friend,
and the day finally came when she was going to meet him…
So let’s go back into that world – and we will be back to RUvealed, right after the story!
With a shaking hand, she rang the doorbell….
And her friend opened the door.
“Is he here?” she asked.
“Yes, he is.” She replied.
“He is the only one left. His brothers and sisters have already gone.”
“Come back with me to the den, he’s waiting there.”
With a pounding heart, she crossed the living room and turned right to go into the den.
And there she saw him.
And she looked at him.
And he looked at her.
And he ran straight to her!
She picked him up and held him close.
She held him in front of her and she looked into his eyes.
While he looked into hers.
And she knew…
with every fiber of her being –
that he was the one!
“He was the runt of the litter, so no one wanted to pick him.” Her friend explained.
“How old is he?”
“2 weeks old. He’s still drinking milk.”
And he’s a chihuahua?
“Yes, A little deer head chihuahua.”
“I want him. He’s coming home with me.”
“Knowing you, I had a feeling you would say that.” Said her friend.
“I never, ever knew I would ever own a chihuahua, to be honest. But I know he is meant to be mine.” She answered.
S0 she bundled him up in a warm blanket and gently put him inside of her winter coat.
She drove home with him close to her chest.
She told him how much she loved him already. She praised GOD that he made him for her.
And she held him close while she felt him gently sleeping.
It was as if he already knew where he belonged.
They felt each other’s heartbeats, while the love filled the car and every inch of themselves the rest of the way home.
They belonged to each other.
She named him Ronin.
From that day forth the two were inseparable.
Everywhere she was, so was he.
From morning to night they were together, even sleeping in the same bed every night.
When she began to travel, he came along every step of the way.
He was used to being with her and was the perfect traveling companion.
He even traveled internationally with her because she couldn’t bear to be without him for even a day!
This love story could easily continue with all of the beautiful adventures they shared together…
But we will end it for now.
because it is too hard to type through the tears.
So this is where I will bring us back to RUvealed, and reveal that it was me.
And the love was between my best friend Ronin and me.
Ronin and Ru.
Now I wish you could wrap ME in your warm embrace because I sure do need it.
While I initially planned on writing the tragedy into the story, it is just too painful to do.
So I will just let you know that he passed away February 8th, 2017.
He was 2 1/2 years old.
I thought he would grow old with us and I never imagined GOD would take him so soon.
But HE knows the reason why and I trust that I will be with Ronin again one day.
And though it seems that I am not as healed as I thought, every day is a new day.
I never knew before I had Ronin how people got so attached to their pets.
But now I do.
He was my baby. My best friend.
And a piece of me feels missing even still.
Part of me wants another dog so badly, but the bigger part of me feels like I would be cheating on him somehow.
We were so very close I don’t know if I can ever get that back again.
A once in a lifetime, unconditional love, and friendship.
You all were supposed to meet him.
As soon as I found out about Twitching, one of my first thoughts was having Ronin on stream with me.
He was always in my lap anyhow, so it would have been great!
My lap still feels empty when I game. 😦
But I am blessed because I was his mommy, even for a short time.
And that is something that will stay in my heart forever.
I may never completely heal, but I am surely blessed to have known him.
If my love could have saved him, he would have lived forever.
I thank you all so much for letting me really pour out a piece of myself on these pages today.
I appreciate your love and support and for caring about me.
Because I sure do care about you!
Come back Monday to Ru’s Daily and I promise to make you laugh instead of cry!
If you want to get a head start on the fun,
Catch me on Twitch Tonight And Tomorrow night at 10pm!
We have a blast on my stream!
And I streaming RETRO GAMES all weekend!
See you there!
Have a wonderful weekend!
I love you all!
