Saying Goodbye to a Part of our Furry Family

heart (3)

Today has been a difficult day and it’s not even close to being over. My youngest sister aka one of my best friend’s  dog passed away this morning. He was a Doberman, 6 years old, and such a love. He was a chewer of blankets, stuffed toys etc which caused him to have multiple surgeries for intestinal blockages. The last time it happened, he nearly died. My sis had learned to recognize the signs he may have a blockage, but this time it just all happened so fast. Last night he was walking around etc. This morning he was gone. The Mr. and I went there earlier so he could help her boyfriend with the labor intensive part of the burial process. Then we left to give them privacy to say their final goodbyes. My heart is breaking for her and her boyfriend  I know how hard it to lose a member of our furry family! He will sure be missed. I wish there was something I could do or say that would make things better for them.  For now, I decided to re-schedule the BBQ we had planned for today. We will have it tomorrow.  Loss, especially sudden loss, brings up so much for all those involved; I also decided to skip training and just have a lazy watching movie kinda day. I don’t even feel like running about it. Maybe this evening. Or maybe not. Either way,  tomorrow will be better.

Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

  1. I am so sorry for your sister, her boyfriend, and all of you! I come from a family of animal lovers, and our pets truly were/are part of our family. I am sending you all comforting thoughts as you grieve. Be gentle with yourselves.

  2. Awww, I am so sorry. It somehow seems silly that we can get so shook up by the loss of pets, but in a lot of cases they are who you spend the most amount of your time with.
