Pokin along

Hi all - It is a really good thing I joined Slow Poke quilters, cuz thing are moving slow here!  We had our last big summer todo - A 3 day weekend at the waterpark.  I think it took me 4 days to recover!
But the trip was very welcome, as rather unexpectedly, my little dog of 16+ years had 2 strokes and I had to put her to sleep.  It was all very peaceful and I held her as she went. The vet was great and even sent a card afterwards.  But the house is too silent now, there is no pitter patter of little paws, no soft brown eyes following my every move. I plan to get another dog but not just yet.  Until we met again Louisa.......


  1. Michelle, I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. I have been through the very same thing. I will be thinking of you and your Louisa.


  2. My deepest condolences on your loss. It is the hardest part of the responsibility of pet ownership bar none. (((hugs)))
