In My Absence

Please let me apologize for not posting for some time. Personally, I /our family had been dealing with the death of our family dog. We had her for 11 years and right from the time I had picked her up, she became one of us - our "baby girl". Just before Christmas, she had been diagnosed with cancer and we struggled with her difficult and slow demise. We spent many nights by her side, carrying her, loving her, letting her eat whatever she favoured (especially my son's gourmet spinach dip). As her legs weakened and her breath became laboured, we knew her time with us here was soon to end. She is now in heaven, awaiting for us to come home. God bless you Baby Girl. We love you. ox

Sincere condolences on the loss of your dog.

I know how it feels; we have a cat in the last weeks of life and soon I'll have to make that last hard decision for her. Until then, like you did - we are spoiling her totally.

Good to see you back and blogging.

Thank you Paul.
Pets become your family as soon as you bring them home. Through their lives, they strive to please - you. They develope a sense of devotion and bonding begins instantly. I believe that's partially why it's so difficult.
My prayers go to you and your family for your difficult journey ahead.
