All Dogs Go To HeavenSaturday, January 26, 2013
I spoke earlier this week about difficult decisions, but sometimes decisions are taken out of your hands. Yesterday we said goodbye to Tuppence, at 22 it wasn't a surprise, he had a long and happy life, seven years of it living with us, but it doesn't make it any easier. My family home is now a pet free zone, there are no patter of footsteps to greet me as I come in, and although I have 2 wonderful dogs of my own I had so many amazing years with this wee guy I'm finding it difficult to adjust. At the end of the day, all we can focus on is the love that we had for this wee guy, the silly games, the cuddles, the laughs we had when he sneezed and banged his head against the floor. We used to joke that Tups was the dog that death forgot, how much I wish that could have been true. So give the animals you love an extra cuddle tonight, because no matter how long they are with you, it is never enough.
