Puppy Heaven

We lost our Sweet and loving-spirited dog yesterday and our family's hearts are broken. She was truly a GOOD dog in every sense of the word and barely over a year old. We have nestled her close in our hearts, which gives us greater capacity to love more as we move forward.

We miss our friend and gentle companion.
This was the day we got her last September.

And this is where I found Kotah yesterday when I looked out the window
after we told the boys.

That's hard for an adult much less a child...

Ohhh, I'm so sorry Lisa. Losing someone so loved is such a hard thing to experience, especially for your boys. I hope you all find peace and happiness soon. =)

Oh Lisa!! This is absolutely heartbreaking! I'm so sorry for your family's loss!

Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you.....
I loved you so --
'twas Heaven here with you."

I'm so sorry about your Dog. That is so sad, especially when it is unexpected. I hope your boys are doing ok, it's hard when you first taste of that sense of loss in your life.

So sorry to hear about your puppy dog.

I hope the boys are doing ok; that picture tugs at my heart! I've always heard these "pet" experiences teach our children little lessons that will be so important as they mature.

On another note, I love the Colo. fall pictures!

I'm thinking of you and your family, it's always hard to lose a companion, and she looks like she was a really special part of the family.

Oh I'm so sad for you and your family. We had to put down our beloved yellow lab, Tiger, in March, and I still miss her. It seems so strange when I get home not to have her waiting and watching for me by the door. My heart is sad with yours. :(
