Sadness and Love...

Well this is a sad time for me to be sharing that My sweet Curtis is in heaven now. I am so blessed to have had him in my life for almost 18 years. He was an amazing dog and touched my life in so many ways. He was very dear to me and my husband and we have lost a part of our heart. We had to put him to sleep on the 13th of November. Some of you already know who follow me on FB.
The Best Dog EVER! All I can say is my life has changed and I miss my daily routine with him. He was a part of everything that we did. He was my little friend who followed me everywhere and just loved us unconditionally. Faithful and oh so sweet.
So I am using my blog to make a tribute to him. He deserves it and well lets be honest it just makes me feel better to talk about it. Since you all are amazing and kind I knew that I could share. 
I will never forget!

Thanks for letting me share.
Trust me I need to because this is the hardest thing I have EVER had to do.

  2. I can imagine how sad you must be now. I lost my favorite dog years ago but I still miss her. A dog can truly be a member of the family and so you are entitled to grieve. In time you will only have good memories to remember.
