Saying Good Bye
ugh, I feel like this is a really sad post that I just NEED to do. Yesterday when my mom and dad left here to return to Arkansas they took our dog with them. Why? Well, we really feel like it is time to make the hard decision to put Snoopy down and I really wanted him burried on the farm with my childhood pets, so my mom and dad promised to take care of it for me. Yesterday I did not feel like an adult, I felt once again like a helpless child! I thought it would be Kirstyn crying when they left but instead it was me! I thought I was ready...but the truth is, I have lived with Snoopy longer than I have lived with my husband! David took me to the pound and we adopted Snoopy almost 10 years ago when we were dating. When I had my miscarriage, Snoopy spent a week laying in bed beside me being very patient and loving. He has a very quirky personality that many people found hard to love (much like me!), but he is very loyal and recently has been a great friend to Kirstyn. They love to go outside to play bubbles. I will post a video later of them playing bubbles that I took this week. I so wish I would taken a video of this funny interaction between them last summer when he was still feeling well and more active. This picture of Kirstyn giving Snoopy a hug good-bye really shows how we were all feeling! I was taking the picture and I am shocked it turned out okay because I had tears running down my face!
