Home of an Emotional Idiot

While there were times when he wished he could roll back the clock and erase all the sadness, he had a hunch that if he did so, the joy would be diminished as well. And that was something he couldn't contemplate. (From At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks)

Rest In Peace My Beautiful Girl

The vet said the growth was malignant. She could remove it but there would be no guarantee that it wouldn't grow back or that it would stop the bleeding. It was eating away at the roof of AJ's mouth.

We wanted to bring her home so that my dad could have a chance to say good-bye to her. But she collapsed halfway out the door.

I am SO incredibly sad right now. I miss her so much already.

Rest in peace my beautiful baby!!! I love and miss you!

    I am so sorry to hear this. With so much going on in your life, you certainly didn't this on top of it. Poor AJ. You did so much for her that I am sure she knew what she meant to you.

    Oh Rebecca, I am so sorry about AJ. That is the worst. At least she didn't suffer; I hope you can be comforted by that. My poor little Ollie is not far behind her and I know how horrible it feels.

    Rebecca... I'm so sorry, its sooo painful to loose a pet... my sister had to let go of our dog that was with us for over 9 years... I found this and sent it to her and she said it help her .. I hope it bring a bit of comfort....


    If it should be that I grow weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep,
    Then you must do what must be done,
    For this last battle cannot be won.

    You will be sad, I understand.
    Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
    For this day, more than all the rest,
    Your love for me must stand the test.

    We've had so many happy years.
    What is to come can hold no fears.
    You'd not want me to suffer so;
    The time has come -- please let me go.

    Take me where my need they'll tend,
    And please stay with me till the end.
    Hold me firm and speak to me,
    Until my eyes no longer see.

    I know in time that you will see
    The kindness that you did for me.
    Although my tail its last has waved,
    From pain and suffering I've been saved.

    Please do not grieve -- it must be you
    Who had this painful thing to do.
    We've been so close, we two, these years;
    Don't let your heart hold back its tear.

    I'm so sorry, Rebecca. I know that doesn't seem like much right now. But, our hearts are with you.
