Gypsy my 13 yr old Doxie was put to rest last night, I prayed to God to give me the strength to let her go. She was my best friend and my baby, my emotional support I miss her so much I have not healed yet. I knew it would happen some day taking her age, but never expected it this soon. I wanted more time with her.
I am devastated I am certainly taking this hard. I said my goodbye and she licked my hand like she acknowledged which I know she did, we were that close. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do now, I pray to God to give me the strength to get through this. She was such a great part of our family, everyone would light up when she walked in the room.
She loved to play dress up, loved to help in the garden, always waited for me to get home from work by the door sitting on her hind legs as soon I walked in she would wave her front paws at me to pick her up and shower her with kisses. She left behind her little brother a 7 year old mini Doxie, who is missing her as well they were inseparable, I mean eat, sleep, share food, and toys.
I plan to shower him with a my love to help him get through this, as he is showering me with kisses, to help me cope as well. God Bless!
