yesterday....


we had to say goodbye to our Nikita



she was a special dog and I miss her more than I can say.


I woke up today with a giant hole in my heart that used to be filled by her sweet face.



Its very strange around here.... quiet, but not in a good way.



We went out for diner last night and when we got home, I expected to see her coming down the hall to greet us at the door or jumping on the back door to get in-but she didnt.


I rolled out of bed this morning and looked down before my feet hit the carpet because I always had to watch that I didn't step on her at the side of the bed, but she wasn't there.


I knew it was coming but I guess that doesn't make things any easier.


People say I should be thankful for the 13 years I had with her, and I am, but I was just not prepared to say goodbye yet.


Well, this has taken me long enough to write and for those that know me I am not a "sappy person" and I really need to go wipe my eyes and the puddle off my keyboard.

Oh Regan....I am so so sorry to hear this. I am sad and you brought tears to my eyes. It's never easy no matter what the situation is or their age. They are still part of our family and that is why it hurts so much. I'm sending you a big hug across the miles, my friend.

So sorry for your loss. We had to say goodbye to our girl this summer and I know what you are going thru. The house just doesn't feel the same does it? Even three months later grief still sneaks up on me but it has gotten easier. Big hugs to you.

I can feel your pain, we had to let go of our 17 year American Eskimo this August, I still wait for him to greet me when I come home. The rest of the furries are there but there is a hole without him. This weekend was a bad weekend for pets, you are the 3rd person I have heard that lost their beloved dog.
