Saying, “Goody-Bye” to my Old Girl, TT
Yesterday was a very hard day. I've never been through this and either has my daughter. It's heartbreaking saying goodbye to my best friend, my family member, and the greatest, old dog ever..in our eyes!
I adopted her 17 years ago from a shelter in Atlantic City. She was almost 18 years old when she crossed that rainbow bridge yesterday. She's been with me so long, in 5 different houses, a marriage, a child, a divorce, and 2 more dog brothers and a sister, another marriage - what a life we lived together and each day was better and better with her. Towards the end of her life she slowed down, she had a couch all to herself, and she loved her bonies until the end. She made everything a little bit easier, but it was time. She looked at me yesterday and I just knew. She was tired, battling some illnesses, and it was time.
Our T brought us so many licks, laughs, car rides, and a love that I will always have in my heart forever.
We have other dogs in the house and when we came home from the vet they were sniffing all over looking for T. It was heartbreaking knowing that dogs feel just like us. The night last night was peaceful, but sad. They just laid there wondering where their sister was, but maybe they knew. Maybe they knew already? Just like me if you own a pet, there is nothing better than that love from a pet, my best friend - and as we said "good-bye" I knew she knew she was loved so much. For a Mamma of fur-babies, that's all we need to know.
RIP, my old girl TT...I love you! And thank you girl for choosing me as your human person and loving your sister Abby.
