I have been thinking about this all morning and am not sure what to say. Baby Love passed away this morning. She starting having some serious issues around 4am and by dawn we were off to the vet. It was bad, and I had to make the decision to stop it. I felt it was the only way. I spoke with the neurologist this morning and she agreed. If there had been any hope I would have done anything to save her. I know you all have followed her story for sometime and your thoughts, prayers and donations for surgery have been a blessing. She has meant so much to me. She and I were joined at the hip from the age of 4 weeks so starting over will be hard. She is in every part of the house and yard. I have about a million photos and videos of her. I think the hardest thing will be de programing myself off the routines and scheudles we had. My favorite memories are laughing and cheering her on as she jumped an played in the yard. She loved to be held like a baby and we cuddled almost every night. She loved music, I have a wonderful memory to share with you. One night my husband came home to hear Salsa music blarring in the house and me yelling. In coming in the door her thought "What the heck". What he found was Baby Love and I in the kitchen dancing to the music, she was jumping around and so was I as I cheered her on. I know she felt a lot of love and security, I just wish these last few days were not so much about pills and me being afraid to touch her and more about cuddles and fun in the yard. I have thought all morning about this and have made 2 decisions. One is that I am going to spread some of her ashes at her favorite places in the yard and the rest will go in a beautiful pewter urn. Second, I plan to continue the blog in her name but about my other dogs, her sisters. They were always so good to her and I am sure you guys will love to see and read about them.
To Baby Love:
You were an inspiration to us all. You were a comic, a fighter and a gentle soul!!
Someone told me once that for all I did for you and other animals that I would get a huge crown of jewels in heaven. But he can keep the stones if I can see you again! In all your glory!
