Cherry, Happy Belated 15th Birthday My Baby


Recommended Posts

Cherry, sorry this is late but we were on vacation and didn't have internet access, I know you know we were thinking about you. We were so happy when you beat the odds and made it to your 14th birthday in pretty good shape for a princess of your years. All the walks, good food, and the low stress life style were definately working for us through the first 14 years. We had great hopes of going for the record, but that was not to be. I am finally to the point where I can talk about you and think of you without breaking down, but only if I put effort into it. We had almost 12 years of good memories and that is what I want to remember and it is getting easier. But if I am not careful and on guard, the memory of the last few weeks starts to come through. The limping started to come and go shortly after your birthday. At first we found nothing and the x-rays were clear, but that changed eventually, and all we could do is make you comfortable in your last days. When the drugs wouldn't work any longer, we had to let you go. I don't think the 1st of October will ever be a good day for me again. I miss my walking partner, I miss my cuddle partner for watching TV, I miss my sweet, calm, and faithful best friend. So, until we meet again, find all the good friends that others have lost with you up at the bridge and have a nice party while waiting for us. I look forward to being with you again. Happy 15th Birthday Baby!

I remember your very first post about Cherry :brokenheart.

She will always be with you in your heart :grouphug .


When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry
