"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Sad day

We are less two furry friends today.

We discovered another tumor on Molly yesterday, her third. If you remember we had to have her tail removed last February because of cancer. She had several smaller ones we could feel as well as the big one I found yesterday. Since she was almost eleven, which is an older dog for a golden, we made the hard decision to put her to sleep. It's such a hard thing, but felt it best for her and for us.

And our Flirt went outside a few weeks ago never to return. She was not well and I wonder if she knew... She was our cuddle kitty. She loved to bury her head in our arms...

Sad...

So sorry to hear this news, Mary. I know how special your furry babies are, you can just look at them and see they are loved. Saying goodbye is never easy. They do leave paw prints on our hearts, forever...such a remarkable blessing.
I have an elderly lab and am grateful for every day he is with us. Wishing you comfort and a peaceful heart.
Sending sympathies.
