I knew the day would come when we had to say goodbye to our sweet Bitsy. But time caught all of us by surprise this week, as she went into severe kidney failure. We couldn’t turn it around. We said goodbye to her yesterday, and she died in my arms. I would have gone with her if I could have.
She was our companion, a best friend and she gave us unconditional love. I feel so empty now that she is gone, like my heart has been hollowed. I see her everywhere.
Chelsea and Mooch were her friends and I know the house must feel empty for them too. When we came home without her, Chelsea walked all around the outside of the car sniffing.
Bitsy was a gift to us from heaven, and I’m so grateful for the time we had with her. She taught us so much. You can read about her here.
I hope the tears will stop in a few days, and my heart will fill with memories of her. For those of you who have been through the death of a pet, I know you understand the feeling.
Bitsy has her wings now and I hope she’s learning to use them well. I will miss her so much.
Hugs to each of you who have ever lost a pet.
