Beloved Pet

I haven't been up to much posting during the past week because one of my "babies" (German Shepherd of 13 years) had to be put to sleep last Friday.  I spent most of my days and nights during that week right with him tending to his every need and just loving on him.  It was such a hard decision to make and took me a couple of days, but I knew he was ready to go...and I loved him enough to let him go!  Painful for me...but heavenly for HIM.  He was all that mattered.  

He showed up at our backdoor one evening 13 years ago.  We tried to find his home but couldn't. The vet told us he was around 6 weeks old...so, we named him "Lucky" (told him he was lucky to have us as his family - 'cause I LOVE animals!).  He knew just how lucky he was...that is for sure!

Here is a picture of my "baby"...

The last thing I told him was that I'd love him "forever and a day".  He was just the best, most gentle and loving dog ever.  Truly a companion!  I will miss you "Lucky"...each and every day.

So, dear readers, I will be back...but now I need to catch up on everything...and spend a little more time pondering my wonderful memories with him!  Sound crazy?  Oh well, that is just who I am and it will help me to heal!

Have a "Simply Irresistible" Day!


  1. Oh my, I love seeing that sweet face. He was a "lucky" boy for sure. Healing prayers my friend.

  2. That you my sweet friend! I know you know how very much I loved him...and I miss that sweet face too...every single day! Thanks again for the special card and the prayers!
