Oh old girl, today was the day we gave you your wings. I’d hoped the decision would be easier, that somehow you would let us know. But you didn’t. You fought tooth and nail right to the end, in typical pug style. I thought I’d feel some peace, but I don’t. It just hurts. Yesterday I took you for ice cream and then an afternoon trip to the beach, I’m positive it was the best day of your life. You enjoyed yourself so much. So much that I was doubting that final vet appointment we’d made. But this morning you were tired, you found a patch of sun and snoozed away – not even getting up to greet me when I got home from a very teary school run. It was time. Even though you still found joy in food, your body was giving up. I didn’t want to wait until every day was a bad day. So I hope that wherever it is that dogs go when they leave us, that it is warm and you find your patch of morning sun. That you find Harry and he can show you around while you chase him on legs that work properly again. He always was your favourite. I know you didn’t love Sid as much as he loves you, but he has already searched the house for you and it’s breaking my heart. If it’s possible, I think he will feel this more than anyone else in this family. Thank you for being the most lovely, stubborn, happy, tough little comedian we’ve ever known.

We will miss you so much xx

    Well I just tried to read your blog post aloud to my hubby, but I only made it halfway through before I was sobbing. Such beautiful words. Such a gorgeous girl, I’m sure she knew just how much she was loved. Your photos are so precious. Sending love to your family at this sad time. I will squeeze my two puggies a little tighter tonight xxReplyCancel
