There is no easy way to say goodbye to those we love. On her birthday,

little smelly belly anna belly went to the hospital never to come home. As

I sat with her the last hour of her life today the thoughts of never looking

in her eyes across the room and smiling and being rewarded with a wagging

tail broke my heart. Of never being woke up with the barking play bow in

the middle of the night for a late night potty break Or the warmth of her

curling behind my legs as I slept. Those paws covering those eyes as she

tried to sleep later while I prepared for work and wondering why did Mom

turn that light on.


Last night as I wandered around the house worried about my girl - the oddest

things we do - I had for months wanted to get rid of my cookbooks in the

kitchen - just more clutter - but never got around to it. Last night I did

it. For reasons known to no one - I have a habit of sticking papers in the

cookbooks - so I shook it out and a large piece of paper fell out. It was

my fathers death certificate - then I noticed a smaller piece of paper.

Picked it up and it was a note I had written Bob years ago thanking him for

making my birthday the greatest - he wrote back on the note - Your welcome,

you are the greatest. Yes it was Valentines Day. Dad and Bob both left in

2000 - the 2 most important men in my life. I felt today that something had

both of them send me a message yesterday to let me know they would be there

for Annabelle today. That even though they are no longer here - they still

love and watch out for those I love.


So to all those before - accept Annabelle into your arms and lead her on her

new journey - mama will see you again.

Carla, I'm very sorry for the loss of your precious Annabelle. I'm sure she was met at the Bridge by dear friends and a chorus of roo's, and will live on in your heart forever. :beatheart:grouphug
