Betty's First Bridge Birthday :(


Recommended Posts

Betty Joan would have been 12 yesterday. I miss her a lot. Last weekend was my first time going to our local farmer's market since she passed. Except for some serious illness back in 2011 and a small handful of times over the years, we've gone pretty much every week since I adopted her back in the summer of 2005.


It's not the same without you, sweetheart.



Looking back at her 8th birthday when we were going through some major health issues, I remember worrying that she wouldn't even make it to 8. So I should treat the time since as a very nice bonus. She was on the rebound here, but we had a couple of months of prednisone therapy to go to get her albumin levels back to normal but she rebounded pretty nicely.



Ninth birthday.






And her last birthday, from last year, her 11th.

Betty Joan's face is one of the most expressive on a hound I've ever seen. Happy Heavenly birthday, sweet girl.

Losing them is so hard and then going through the "firsts" without them can be really difficult. She was such a precious soul. No wonder you miss her so much

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
