I'm just mourning her so deeply, all the while feeling so deep down grateful for having had so many wonderful years with her. Our beloved Millie left us suddenly last Saturday and we could not have been more shocked and saddened. She was twelve and a half and we had been lucky enough to have her with us for almost exactly eleven years. Of course it wasn't nearly enough.
She was loved by everyone who met her and she never met a stranger. She was spoiled rotten and deserved every bit of it. She was the most special dog I've ever known and in fact was really much more person than dog except that she loved unconditionally and only wanted to be loved back.
She was such a part of every moment of our lives that we now have to find a new normal and it hurts in ways I never would have imagined. When you love with your whole heart. you grieve with your whole heart. As painful as it is, I would do it all over again to live these eleven years with her.
We will never forget you sweet Millie. We will tuck away the precious memories we have of you in our hearts and keep them there forever.
