A Tough Day

Today's a hard day. We lost our 13 yr old pup - Pumpkin - yesterday. She'd been losing weight steadily for the last month. It was obvious when I came home from San Francisco that something was wrong, painfully obvious when the DH and I got home from Hawaii. We had her in and out at the vet's, tried different things, but in the end, knew anything we were contemplating doing to prolong her life was for us and not her. She was in liver failure, the doctor suspected it was also cancer. Very hard decision to let her go, but we know it was for the best.

The 9 yr old is taking it very hard. The boys don't really understand why she's so upset. I was fine yesterday, but it's hit me today. She was my very first baby, long before we had the kids. And because of that she was spoiled rotten.

These are two of my favorite pictures of her, when she was younger and full of energy. And man, did that dog have energy! I have memories of letting her in the backyard and just seeing a blur of black and white as she ran back and forth. I'm going to miss her unique personality.

I'm heading off to try and work. Not sure how much I'll get done today.

Oh, Eli, my heart goes out to you. Cyber hugs to you and your daughter and the rest of your family. Losing a furry family member is so difficult. She is once again young and full of energy, just the way you remember her.

Oh Eli, those photos of Pumpkin are just adorable; it's so great you have them. I'm so sorry and sad for you and your family.

How's your other "puppy" taking it? I bet he misses her too. It's not only hard on the family, but also on the other pets left behind.

Big squeezes to you, dh, and the gremlins. *sniff*

Eli, I'm reading this late but big hugs. I know what it's like to lose a dog you love. They take a piece of your heart with them.

My heart is bleeding for you right now, Elisabeth. Big hugs to you and your family for losing such a joy.
