Bloggiversary..postponed

video

Today its a whole year since I first posted on this blog, but do you mind if I postpone the celebrations until tomorrow?
Today at 5pm the vet is coming to put Willow 'to sleep'.
We took her to be examined yesterday. She is extremely ill but not in pain, and we brought her home so our boys could come and say goodbye last night. She is here next to me on a big soft blanket on the sofa. Its obvious she needs to be released.
I can't believe she will be gone this evening.
I am beyond sad.
We all are.
I'm sure you understand.

Oh Jackie - what can I say? It is so hard to say goodbye even when it's the kindest thing to do. At least you can comfort each other. We are all thinking of you and send our love, Heather.

I'm sorry Jackie. I know how hard that is - even when we know it's the right thing - it's never easy. I just went through that myself last summer with our Lab Norman. I'll be thinking about you today. x o
