The circle of life includes the journey to death. When we loose our pets that have been part of our family for years, we know they are with out the pain of this life.
I have dreaded this day for the past year. Annie was diagnosed with cancer last Feb. We had one major surgery to remove part of her paw...
There is a small tear where she left our lives. An empty dog bed below my easel...and extra dog dishes on the back porch. Paddy is walking around looking for her.
She has been with me through almost every painting I have created the past 14 years. Ever constant and every ready for love and a walk.
We miss our Annie...but know she is not in pain any more.
Words of my heart,
Isa 65:25 The wolf and the
lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like
the ox, but dust will be the serpent's food. They will
neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain," says the
This tugs at my heart. We had a black Schnauzer, Jazz, that was THE smartest dog ever. She died young - only eight, but she helped me raise my first four children. If it wasn't for her, my fourth child would have NEVER taken naps. Two year old Emma would curl up with Jazz on the floor on her dog bed of all places and the two would snuggle and nap. The kids could tug all day at her "beard" and she would just whimper... she would NEVER bite them. Now, the pizza boy or strangers, that was another story.... :)
They leave a hole when they go, but think of the hole they filled for the time they were with us. Hugs.
