MORE SAD NEWS FOR OUR FAMILY

HELLO ALL,
THIS IS ONE VALENTINES DAY THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET.

I AM POSTING 2 DIFFERENT POSTS TODAY, ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE MORE SAD NEWS TO TELL FIRST.
OUR DOG ROCKY WHO WAS 13 YEARS OLD, PASSED AWAY THIS EVENING.
I WAS THE ONE WHO FOUND HIM LYING ON THE FLOOR & MY SON STEVEN & I TOOK IT VERY HARD. ROCKY WAS SO CLOSE TO STEVEN WHEN HE WAS GROWING UP.
ROCKY  WAS A JACK RUSSELL.  WHEN  MY BOYS GAVE HIM HIS TREATS, THEY WOULD HOLD UP THE TREAT HIGH  & ROCKY WOULD JUMP UP VERY HIGH OFF THE GROUND. HE WAS A WONDERFUL PET & FRIEND.
ANIMALS BECOME FAMILY MEMBERS & MY HUBBY SAID THAT HE JUST DOESN'T KNOW HOW MUCH MORE SADNESS & HURT THAT WE CAN TAKE.
THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH IN A VERY SHORT TIME.
FIRST MY FIL & NOW OUR PUPPY ROCKY.
ALL I CAN SAY IS AT LEAST THEY ARE BOTH AT PEACE.
BOTH OF THEM WILL BE MISSED SO VERY MUCH.

  1. Oh Sweetheart I am so sadden about this. I know how it is to loss a pet. Since we don't have children, we love our dog just like one. He was actually sick Sunday night and I stayed home with him and did not go to church. If I had went, I would not have paid attention to the pastor. So I know exactly how you feel. I have been in that sinken boat also. I pray that this will be all that will come upon you right now. The Lord knows how much you and your family can take and He won't over do it. I pray that you will be able to look at puppies again with the same love that you did for Rocky. It took me awhile before I would warm up to puppies after ours died or we had them put to sleep. He is in Doggie Heaven now. Be at peace and know that you did all you could for him with love and care for all those years. Love you, Terrie

  2. My dear friend,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. I know it seems impossible right now, but our Lord does not give us more burdens than we can bear. In time your pain will lessen I promise. Please remember all the wonderful memories you have, share them often with each other. Love, Marie
