Very Sad Day
Well, it has been a tearful and heartbreaking day here yesterday evening and today, only time will heal. My little blond long hair Chihuahua, Taffy, died in my arms this morning. Celena had rushed her to the vet yesterday afternoon, after office hours so the vet charged us $100.00 just to go to his office. They kept her over night, called this morning, said we could do for her what they were there, charged us another $123.00, so we picked her up, brought her home, I was holding her in a blanket and she took her last breaths about ten minutes after we got her home. I think she held on long enough to get home. I know they get old and die eventually, she had a long and good life. It just hurts so much to lose them. Celena and I buried her out in the woods behind the house. That was so hard. It is amazing what you can do when you have to that you feel you are otherwise too weak and hurt to do. I just walked out there tonight to see a number of fire flies lighting around where she is buried. I know we all lose out treasured little furry babies through out life, unfortunately "death is part of life" as Dad always said... and it is always hard and heart breaking. And losing Taffy was no exception. I had to take something to calm my nerves today and have slept most of the day since we buried her. Only time will heal I guess.I miss you Taffy baby, I love you.
