Homekeeping, Homeschooling & Good Health in the Rural South
I'm so sorry, Dana! I remember last year, close to this time, my Oswald was so sick, and I came out to your beautiful house and cried. They are like part of the family. I'm very sorry for you loss. I read this blog post recently and thought it was so sweet. I hope you will like it too. (By the way, Oswald miraculously got better after about 5 months, and he is still with us today. Only coughs a little and on no meds. He will be 8 in a few days.)http://thistlecovefarm.blogspot.com/2012/05/dogs-purpose.htmlLove,Angie
Thank you, Angie. I remember and I am happy for you that Oswald made it. My Molly certainly led a charmed life - the vet had never seen another big golden retriever 17 years old. It was just heartbreaking for me to have to say goodbye.
Dana, I am SO sorry. The hurt is indescribable. Just know that all he ever wanted was you, and you gave him that.Thinking of you.Julie
Thank you, Julie. I didn't want to say goodbye, but I have known it was inevitable for a little while. Just doesn't make it any easier and I'll admit I'm still teary. Molly had been around so much longer than my child and was almost as old as my marriage!
So sorry to hear about Molly. I had to say goodbye to Sully after 13 years and I understand what you are going through - it's so tough when they have been such a part of your life for so long. My vet gave me a copy of the Rainbow Bridge poem -- it was sweet and helped :-) Here is a link to it online -- http://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm
Thank you. That's beautiful.
