last night.....Why is it that we love animals so much....Lucy was such a great dog, very loyal, very welcoming when the kids were born and was a great friend, she never back talked, but then again...there were a few times,lol...dh and I have been reminiscing of the times she was a pup...oh my...great times but a lot of work....

she was suffering so we had to make the right choice for her...it was so sad...dh is a mess...I am so glad that he doesn't have to worke today or tomorrow...he is at the creamtory now...so she will be with us forever, not only in our hearts but physically...that may sound strange...but she was such a part of the family...it was so odd this morning not taking her out...there is such a void...the kids are good....they are sad...ds saw her this am before dh took her..and he was fine...they are sad and they cried, we all did and we know that it will be tough for awhile....it is natural...but Easter is coming and it a is a time for new life and we have to think about Lucy being in a better place than we are:)

Thanks for listening friends...have to go before my computer craoks from the tears...:(

Oh Lisa, I am crying along with you! I'm so sorry! Pets are such a big part of the family and it's so hard to let go, but I'm sure y'all did the right thing for her. I think it's a great idea to have her creamated, my brother did the same thing with their lab. They have her ashes in a special place next to some pictures of her with the family.

Lots of (((HUGS))) sweetie!

I'm sorry, Lisa. I feel your sadness. We did the same with Killer. She sits on our entertainment center in a beautiful brass box with her picture next to it.

God bless your family,

Thanks Karen....Was Killer your most recent dog?....Did you get another one?...The kids are asking for a puppy but where we live is not the best place to raise a puppy and we do not want to make any hasty decisions...it is so hard...we keep looking for her and listeneing for her jingles....
