RIP Sweetie. You lived up to your name for 14 1/2 years.

I found the first post I wrote on this blog introducing Sweetie. She lived her full life on the pages of this website and today we said goodbye to her. I’m broken hearted in ways I expected, but it does not make it any easier. All four of us cried this morning as we said our goodbyes to our Sweetie, and then Donnie and I continued to cry for about the next two hours solid. (We made the kids go to school, but we are checking them out early.)

I don’t have much to say, I’m just sad. This is my 3rd pet to leave us in 15 months. My heart does not have much more left.

  2. I’m so sorry for your sorrow…big hugs to all of you. Our fur babies are every bit as loved as our human ones, really. It is sad they can’t live as long as we do. But know she had a WONDERFUL life with your wonderful, loving family. That is evident from these great photos. So sorry!

    I know the pain all too well. What sweet memories/pictures with her.

  6. OH honey, I am crying right now. I know how bad it feels but you gave her a wonderful life and that is wonderful.

  7. I’m sorry! I didn’t realize she’d been a part of your family for that long (not that it matters at all to your heart). Thank you for putting all these photos in one place — I know it can’t have been easy to go through them.

  8. I’m so sorry. I know just because it was looming for a while doesn’t make it any easier. Hugs to your whole family.
