I debated whether to even do this post or not. As a rule, I'm a very private person when it comes to personal matters. But I've come to think of you all as friends, so I decided to go ahead and share my heartache.
I introduced you to this precious guy back in February. To read the sweet story about how he came to be in our lives, go here.
These pictures were taken just last week...
We knew that Cole was older and had some health issues. He had 3 vets and an eye specialist stumped as to what was causing certain symptoms. But he didn't seem to be doing TOO bad, so I was totally unprepared when he suddenly took an unexpected turn for the worse literally overnight a few nights ago. I was devastated that we had to say 'goodbye' to him the very next day. It all happened so fast.
I won't go into details, and I don't want to be depressing. But he was my little snuggle buddy and I miss him dearly. I just wanted to give him a little tribute because he was so special.
I'm trying to focus on the good memories from the short time we had with him (just under 3 years) and find comfort in the fact that he is out of his pain and suffering. My family and friends have been a wonderful support network for me and I'm so grateful to them. I'm trusting God to heal my broken heart.
On a lighter note, we still have this little girl (Bob) who's happy to be queen of the castle again...
I'm heading out of town to my friend's for our annual 'Girls Day' of junkin and the Country Living Fair. Hopefully lots of retail therapy will be just the distraction that I need!
Thanks so much for being with me through the ups...and downs...of life.
