Sad Week

1.8.97 - 30.1.13
Possibly the hardest post I've ever had to make on my blog, but I can't let the passing of my darling little girl go unmarked.  This is purely for my benefit because I am grieving so much after having to say goodbye to my beautiful Rosie on Wednesday this week.  Her suffering was thankfully short-lived and is now over and she is totally at peace but the memories are still raw and painful, even the happy ones.  I miss her sweet face, her barking at every animal on the telly, her getting excited and whizzing around in circles when I call names to come and collect their food, her darting up and down the living room at 100mph when she wanted to play, her wrapping her paws round my neck giving me her "please don't make me" look when her lead was produced at night because she hated being dragged out of the warmth into the cold air, her sitting beside me in the kitchen, Her sneaking up to nick the cushions off the sofa the minute our backs were turned, and her lying on my feet while I play with my pencils and stamps.  She's left a gaping big hole in my heart that I don't know how to deal with.  Her nephew, my gorgeous little man, keeps getting up to look for her.  He goes over to where she made her bed but he can't understand where she's gone. 
My lovely friend Elaine sent me this which I will treasure:
it is so poignant because I can still see my Rosie peeping round the corner at me with that quizzical look on her face.
My friends have been wonderful and I am so thankful for all of their kind words and support.
RIP Little Girl

  5. Oh Anne, Rosie is beautiful ! Our pets are more than just pets, they are family - people who dont have animals in their life dont always understand that we grieve for our 4 legged family memebers just like we would our children/siblings etc etc - they are a huge part of our life, giving unconditional, non judgemental love. I totally understand your pain in your loss - but as the saying goes, better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all - you will always have that special time you shared with her. Tke care xxx

  6. :-( that is so sad. Losing a pet is just so hard. I completely adore my doggie and my heart will break the day I lose her. You are in my thoughts xxxx
