Goodbye, My Friend

I said Goodbye to a wonderful furry friend today. Brandy, who is about 16 years old, had health problems (chronic pancreatitis and thyroid disease) and was recently found to have a malignant tumor in her mouth. Even with pain medication every 12 hours, I could tell she was in pain at about the 9th hour. I wasn't going to let her suffer. So I did what has to be one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do. We made the final trip to the vet's office and I said goodbye to my sweet Brandy. I can only hope that she's in a better place, free from pain and me sticking gooey medicine in her ear twice a day. I will miss her waking me up in the morning by head-butting me. I'll miss her little routine of sitting in front of her food, staring at it and then turning her back on it, only to return in about 3 minutes and eating it. I'll miss seeing her sitting in the front window when I return from work and then running to be at the door as I open it, meowing her greeting. I'll miss her curling up in my bathroom sink watching me get ready for work, making it impossible to use the water! I'll miss her presense, her sounds and the look of love in her eyes. Having to say goodbye to such a wonderful pet that you absolutely adore makes one think they never want another pet...

I miss her so much....

Merry Christmas

The following link is a short ditty about all the merchant catalogs with covers that scream Holiday Decorations, Holiday Gifts, Holiday Clothing, etc. It says it all for me.

Merry Christmas!
