Monique and I were together for 5 wonderful years. She brought out the best in me and I wouldn't trade my time with her for anything. I miss her bouncing on my bed to wake me up for playtime. I miss her picking a fight with Oscar until he would chase her around the house. I miss her waiting at the door for me everyday when I got home from work. She left us behind on October 18th,2010. Since then the house has been a little emptier.
