April 27th ~ Their First Day Without Dexy πŸ’”

There are moments when I wish I could roll back
 the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the 
feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well...
Yesterday was a difficult, sad day for me. Imagine 
how it is for Rima and her family. Last week the decision
 was made to put Dexy to sleep.  He was in lots of pain
 and his quality of life was not good.  I loved that
 little stinker and my heart is also hurting.

It brought back memories of the day 
our Brutus died and the way our Shadow 
died. My heart is heavy and though I know it
 will be “better” again, right now it’s not.

Last night before falling asleep Rima sent me 
this picture.  Their routine is to always take the 
collars off the doggies for the night and put them in
 their spots.  Dexy's will never be used ever againπŸ’” 
This simple picture interrupted my sleep for hours.

We have our Sniff and he is a blessing in our lives, 
and for that I am always grateful.  He is my happiness.

What was supposed to be a relaxing and fun outing 
yesterday, didn’t turn out exactly that way for me. The 
day was beautiful. The food was good. The drinks 
even better, but my heart was sad.  It’s still is.

Not doing much today, on the other hand by early 
evening we will be bored and for all you know we
 may just take a little trip downtown.  A good day to all.
  Losing such a big part of your family is never easy 😒

~ I loved you for your whole life and
 I will miss you for the rest of mine~
