“Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.”
We said goodbye to Gracie a couple of weeks ago. While she had begun to seem a little feeble, it took us by surprise.
With heavy hearts, we made the decision to let her go as we discovered her kidneys were failing.
Gracie would have been 14 in May, she was Chloe’s sidekick, who we lost a year ago in February.
They were two peas in a pod. 🐾🐾
So many fond memories of Gracie are tied to Chloe, that it seems like losing Chloe all over again.
With Gracie gone, we are thankful to have Lola to love and keep us busy. She will be a year old in May.
“Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog – it merely expands the heart.”
– Erica Jong
Having a dog will bless you with many of the happiest days of your life, and one of the worst days.
“Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer.” – Dean Koontz
“A dog has one aim in life. . . to bestow his heart.”
― J. R. Ackerley
Thank you Gracie for some of our happiest days and bestowing your heart.🐾
If the kindest souls were rewarded with the longest lives, dogs would outlive us all.
Gracie, 2005 – 2019
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
