:: saying goodbye

I write this post with a very heavy heart as I remember the sweetest pup a person could ever have. Sixteen years ago my husband...then boyfriend...gave me the greatest gift ever, a sweet little Dalmatian puppy that I named Lucy. She was the most beautiful Dalmatian I had ever seen, and had the personality and temperament to match. She was my constant companion, and my first baby.

If you've been reading along with me, you may remember her as BIG DOG little basket...

Getting older wasn't easy, but you were always happy and eager to please. I'm so sorry I wasn't with you in your last moments, I always wanted to be there with you comforting you....I know now that my heart couldn't have handled watching you go...God must have known too. I miss having you tag along with me in the gardens and relaxing and enjoying them with me.... I miss you so much. You have my heart forever. I love you.

  1. Oh Carrie, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Lucy. My heart hurts for you. I know too well how you feel. Though I have always owned cats I have been where you are now and am watching my 18 year old guy a lot these days as he is really slowing down. I wish that our beloved pets could live as long as we do. It's so hard.
    I'm thinking about you!

  2. Hi Carrie: I can't begin to think of any words to make you and your family feel better during this sad time. Hopefully happy memories of your sweet girl Lucy will comfort you and make you smile again...
