Good Bye "LiL Sister"

My dear sweet and CONSTANT companion suddenly wasn't feeling well this past weekend and so she told me she just wanted to lay down and go to sleep for awhile if that was ok with me. I told her yes, that would be ok because I knew how hard and tireing it was to be 13 yrs. old and all. I'm just going to go right over here and lay down and see if I can rest Momma.....I'll see you later ok? Yes LiL Sister....I'll see you later........I will miss you and love you forever. Oh, momma.....don't cry and be sad....I promise..I will see you later.....I'm just resting........ok?....................................

I don't know what to say except that I'm heart sick. I haven't felt like doing anything. I've been in such a haze and I can't seem to quit crying. To some people this might seem silly and trivial, but I spent more time with LiL Sister than I did my Hubby. We took walks together, we sat out on the porch together. LiL Sister loved to go fishing and ride in the boat. Numerous times just she and I would go and spent sometimes up to three weeks at our lakehouse ( and yes, I took my sewing machine too ). I never did anything without her and vice versa for 13 whole years. She was always smiling and happy and she always made ME smile and be happy. So I thank you for letting me spill my sadness. I'll be back around when I get out of this funk I seem to be in.

  3. Awww she is so cute. I'm so sorry. I know what a HUGE part of our family our doggie is. Its so wonderful to share that love because the love so easily in return. I'm sorry.

  4. I'm so very sad to hear of your loss and share your heartache. Too many times have I gone through it with beloved 'friends'.

    Our latest, 'Duke', is now living on borrowed time, he has kidney failure, and I dread the day. But we've had a good run, 15 yrs., I'm going to miss my little buddy too. God bless... my prayers are with you so that you can start recovering from the loss and remembering those sweet moments.

    As ever, smiles from afar...Fran

  5. I'm sorry you had to say goodbye to such a loving companion! I hope you will be good and caring to yourself as you grieve.

  6. Dogs are family hun. It's only natural that you should mourn. Their love and devotion is only on-loan to us as they live shorter lives. She will always live on in your memories.

    I hope you can return to your crafting soon. Perhaps a memorial project for her?

    Your wonky houses are truely beautiful! I haven't seen anything like them before. Please make more when you can.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. "Lil Sister" sounds like a wonderful companion and dear friend. Hope your memories of the time you spent with her help heal your heart.

  8. So sorry - just so sorry. I know you love her and are grieving. We just learned that one of our furbabies has melanoma and we are just devastated. They are members of the family. Take the time you need to grieve.

  9. I'm so sorry about your loss. What a sweet little companion.
