The loss of a Companion

 I know its been a year since my last blog post but a lot has happened in a year. I guess to start I must tell you of the loss of my best friend, my baby, and my companion "Paisley". It all started this time last year she didn't seem to be feeling well and hubby and I were getting ready to go to England.. So I took her to get her checked and the Vet did just about every test and could find a thing. So away we went leaving her with our daughter. She did pretty good but after returning at the end of May she continued to go down hill and by the end of June she had developed a large lump on her hip. It was just about the hardest thing I have ever had to do but on July 4th we took her back into the Vet knowing that it must be cancer. And yes I was right it was bone cancer. Our wonderful Vet knew that this was going to be hard for me but we knew that the best thing to do was put her to sleep. He left as alone with her tell we felt like we could say good bye. But I don't think you can ever say goodbye to such a sweet little girl that she was. We had her for over 14 year and I don't think there could ever be another like her. I miss her so much not a day goes by that I don't wish she was here. Its been very lonely without her. In December I thought I could get a new puppy, I even went and picked her out and took her home on February 7th. But it wasn't good timing my mother-n-law passed away that day and the following week my sisters son-n-law passed from cancer. So the puppy went back and I think it might be awhile tell I try again. I've lost several dogs over the years but Paisley was there went my last child left home and hubby started working nights. She keep me company and followed me everywhere she will be missed for a long time.
