Yesterday was one of the sadest days I have ever gone through. Our little Lady Bug is no longer here with us. The house feels so empty and lonely without her. Thursday we had such a lovely evening. Lady bug curled up next to us on the blanket by the fountain so happy to be with us, and nothing seemed wrong. Later that night she got sick, and was even worse in the morning and could not even move from her bed. It was all so sudden really, and I was very worried. I called Brian, and then called the vet. Brian came home to get us, and we went to the vet and got there at about 11.00.
In the end we had to have her put down. I am glad she will not be in any pain anymore, but I cried almost all day yesterday off and on. I kept on thinking of all the places she would have been, between us in the middle of the couch, in the window watching me as I sat on the porch steps, Bringing her bone out to brian when he comes home from work, how happy she always was to go on a walk. She was such a sweet loving dog, still like a puppy in many ways. We love her so dearly and we will miss her very much. We only had her here with us for less than a year. She was my mother-in-law, and my sisters-in-laws dog, and they could no longer care for her last year, so we took her in. I have known Lady since she was a puppy really, but I had grown so attached to her over this past year. My heart feels so broken right now. I have been crying the whole time I have been writing this, and I'm sure I will be sad, and crying over my little Lady for a long time. I'm just a very emotional person.
Our little Lady was about 13 years old.
I will never see her big brown eyes looking up at me again. I will miss her so very much.
Rest in peace my little Lady.
I will still check my Etsy every day, but for understandable reasons, I don't think I will be in Etsy chat very often for awhile, and I will probably not be posting on here often either.
