Heavy Heart

With a heavy heart I am posting about the passing of our sweet Libby.

Libby as most of you know that follow my blog was our 13 year old basset hound "aka photo bomber"!

Today was an ordinary day.  Libby ate her breakfast and fell asleep sunning herself in front of the sliding doors of the patio this morning.

This afternoon when she tried to get up from her doggie bed she fell over and lost all movement.

We raced her to the emergency vet and they were able to do some tests and X-rays to find out that Libby had a very large mass on her spleen that burst and she bleed out quickly.

The compassionate ER Vet was able to make her comfortable  before she expired.
So I am so grateful she did not suffer too much.

Libby was the best little dog you could ever know.  She was the heart of our family.

Terry and I are in shock and devastated this all came about so quickly.  Our hearts are broken and we miss her terribly.

We pray she is at peace.  This certainly has been a hard year for us and now with losing our sweet angel has made it even more difficult.

While this was so hard today I hold onto the blessings that come in a tragedy like this.  The whole family was together when this happened.  So we were all with Libby when she passed.

Our fur babies are members of our families and it is so hard to lose them.  They take a big chunk of our hearts when we have to say good bye.

So give your sweet fur babies an extra hug and kiss and treat today and enjoy each and every day you have with them.

Please keep Terry and I in your thoughts and prayers.  This certainly is a large loss for us.
