A Tribute To Traci Girl

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

This has been a very sad week at our house. We made the decision on Monday to put our remaining old puppy down because she was so sick. We couldn't stand the thoughts of her suffering and knew that she missed Tiberius (her mate who passed away on January 26, 2013). I cried my eyes out Monday after we made the decision. Yesterday, hubby took her to the vet and held her while she went to sleep. I was so upset that we decided that it would be best if I didn't go. Instead, I went to water exercise, where I cried the whole morning. I did pay a visit to the doctor and he gave me a prescription to calm me down. We had both Traci and Tiberius for 15 years and their passing was actually like losing a regular family member. I woke up crying this morning but the tears did pass as I made a real effort to keep myself busy. Our two young puppies saw how upset I was and they crawled into my lap and licked the tears from my face and tried to comfort me. I'm not sure that they even understand that Traci is gone yet but they sure were a big comfort to hubby and me.

Hubby and I feel so blessed to have be graced with the lives of Traci and Tiberius. They leave such a big hole in our lives but the good times far outweigh the bad. Thank you God for the lives of our two precious babies. They may have been rescues but they really rescued us!

    So sorry, Cyndi. I didn't know. I'm late reading this. I know how much it hurts. I still miss my old sheltie dog, Counselor, every day, and it's been quite a few years. Yet it is such a blessing to have that beautiful relationship in our lives. So glad you have your little ones - puppies and human! -Marsha

    emoticon It often happens that a "Rescued" Pet ends up actually rescuing their Humans. I am sure that you were as much a Blessing to them as they were to you.
    It is a hard time, but I know that you will endure with the Comfort of your Good Memories.
