"Don't cry because it is over. Smile because it happened."
This is a photo of our two beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Sophie, in front and Skyler behind. Soph...as we call her is 14 and Skyler just turned 5.
These two pups have given us such joy it is hard to describe in words.
Today, unfortunately, we have had to make the decision to put our older girl, Soph, down. It is one of the hardest decisions a pet owner must make but we know it is our final loving responsible act.
Tomorrow morning we will have the vet come to the house and lay our girl to rest.
I know it will be the saddest of days but one that any pet owner must ultimately face in the end.
I titled this post as I did choosing the words I chose for these reasons.
I need God's HELP in seeing me through all this sadness: just as God helped me pick Soph as a puppy all those years ago.
I want to THANK God everyday for having Soph in my life all these years. She has helped me through the most difficult of times with her unfaltering love and devotion.
And finally, WOW, for knowing that I had the pleasure and privilege to have known the finest dog on the planet!! She was the first dog I chose as my own and raised her from a puppy (I know we all say that about our dogs...and it is the truth). I will miss her every day from here on...but I KNOW I WILL SEE HER AGAIN ON THE OTHER SIDE.
THANK YOU SOPHIE...GIVE SCOTT A LITTLE LICK FOR ME..
