Sad days...

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.


  1. I'm so sorry. God is love, and so are dogs, so they must be with Him. I cannot imagine a God who creates so much love only to take it away forever. My heart aches with you.

  2. I believe your dog is playing with our dog. My heart goes out to you. The picture is beautiful but I know not the same. Hugs to you and your family. Furry friends are part of the family and deeply missed.

  3. You dog is indeed in heaven and having a great time there while she waits for her beloved human to join her one day. Please take comfort in knowing that she knew she was loved, is still loved. Our pet's live are too short but that is good for them because it means they are cared for their entire lives while we must carry on afterwards. To end their suffering means to accept our own suffering over losing them. She appreciates that and is free.
