Sunday evening, our beautiful girl "Akira", collapsed due to an attack of some kind. After getting someone over to watch ds, dh and I took our big girl to the local emergency vet. They think it was some kind of stroke or seizure, most likely the latter and most likely due to her cancer having spread. While she seemed almost like her old self at the end there, we knew it was time to say goodbye.
The past couple days have been so very hard. Today is the worst though as it is the first day I've been home alone in this big, empty house. My heart is breaking and there is nothing I can do to stop it. What I wouldn't give to see that big, furry face looking up at me one more time or to be able to rub that fuzzy head. The only consolation is that my big girl isn't in any more pain.
I pray that dogs do go to Heaven and that I'll see my sweet girl again someday. Until then, I miss you so much baby girl and mama loves you, always and forever.
