Update on Freckles...

I have talked to the vet several times now. Her glucose level will not stay up, even on IV, they give her some paste, and it will come up, but then when that wears off it goes back down. The vet feels like we have done everything we could and she is even more disoriented today. We are going in this evening after DH gets off work and have her put to sleep....thank you sooo much for the kind thoughts that you all have left me. It means so much to me. I will be ok, just take a little bit. Missing the simple things already...her greeting me at the door, me bringing her a treat home when I go out (yea she was spoiled, lol), her bugging me to take her nap with her...she could always sense stuff in me too. Times when I would be feeling down, she would try to play, bouncing at me, go through her tricks, actually like she was trying to be funny to make me smile. And she did for 9 years...I just think 9 yrs old is still young for a dog, but the vet keeps saying for her size its old. ok, well...

Hi, Cat

I am so sorry you are going through. Losing a beloved pet, especially one who loves you unconditionally and who absorbs all your emotions without words is so hard. I lost my beloved toy poodle 2 years ago and not a day goes by I don't miss him. It just gets easier to learn to live with it. We did get another dog and he brings us joy and laughter again; I hope you will bring that back into your home. I hope your daughter is doing better, too. I meant to write you many blog entries ago! I have been thinking and praying for you both. Now, I will pray for your healing and hope that you your beautiful card creations bring you comfort and solace (I know that stamping is the best therapy one could have!) God bless
