Not the Greatest of Times

It's been a hot second. Things got a little crazy for me. In the most pressing and saddest of news, I had to let my pup go last night. She declined really rapidly over the weekend and I had to make one of the hardest choices I have ever had to make. I am heartbroken.

It was sort of a lovely moment in a weird way. I got to be with her, and rub her belly while she was sedated and then when she left this world. Dumplin' Elizabeth you were a magnificent pup and I was lucky to be your mom for 8 and a half years. Thank you puppy girl for the often hilarious times, and for loving me so unconditionally it never ceased to amaze me.

  1. So sorry about your girl. Our pets are so precious to us and really become our family. My heart goes out to you--know that her life was happy and full of the love you showered her with. Sending positive vibes your way~

  2. Sorry for your loss Anna. Pets become just like children, and miss Elizabeth will be waiting on the other side of life for you to one day join her again.

    -Rainbow Bridge-

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge, together.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how devastating it is to lose a beloved pet. It is always harder when you have to make the choice to let them go as well. I have had to do the same thing, and even though I am certain that it was the right choice, it's an incredibly hard decision to make. You're in my thoughts.

  4. So sorry to hear about your little pup. What a hard decision to have to make. Hang in there and try to keep smiling.

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you. All of your comments and kindess mean so much.
