My Heidi Girl is Gone....

I have lost a lot of people close to me....and that still did not prepare me for the hole in my heart now.

Two days ago Heidi became a shadow of herself. She'd been struggling for a while....had good days and bad.....but she always had a big grin and a wagging tail. This was different. She was so tired and DH and I just knew. We had always promised her we would do everything we could to keep her comfortable as long as she was happy. But she wasn't happy anymore.

I knew Heidi right from puppyhood and she stole my heart 13 years ago. She was by my side 24/7 for the past month when we took over full-time care from my in-laws. I would have done anything for her....and that had to include letting her go.

My heart is completely broken.

Chaser I am so sorry for the loss of Heidi! You know you gave her the best gift ever! the gift of freedom from the pain and suffering!

She is now running free at the bridge and I sure my big guy is with her having a blast!

Take comfort in knowing there is peace now. Give Chase and Kailey a big hug from me! If you need anything you know where I am okay!

RIP sweet girl!

I'm so sorry to hear about Heidi, Chaser Even when it's the right thing to do, it's never easy to make that final call. She knows she's loved by your whole family and is young and healthy again waiting at the Bridge till you all meet again. I wish you happy memories to lighten your heart.

Heidi
