Hello everyone,

I'm sure I've met some of you in the Grief and Loss Chat. My name is Heather, I'm 25 and I lost my baby girl Daisy very unexpectedly on November 27. She was not ill until the morning of, and after the vet determined there was nothing she could do, we put her to sleep.

I am legally disabled and recovering from the most recent of five orthopedic surgeries, the most recent happened just four days before we had to put her to sleep. I've never had to recover without her before -- it's very sad, and very scary. :( I just celebrated my birthday without her for the first time, and this holiday is going to be very hard on us all. Here is her residence: http://rainbowsbridge.com/residents/DAISY236/Resident.htm. At the bottom of the page is a link to a slideshow I created of she and I.

On the upside, I had submitted a picture of Daisy under our Christmas tree to the local newspaper here, and it was chosen as one of the submissions to be voted on. My family thinks it would be a wonderful tribute to her if her picture won this contest -- the prize isn't extravagant, just movie tickets. For us, it's just more important that it would be so fitting of her memory and how much we miss her. There is definitely someone missing under our tree this year. She loved Christmas so much, she loved to help Kyle (my brother) and I open our presents (she'd nibble at the corners when she got impatient) and we are all grieving so much for her.

If you could please go to this link and vote for her, we would all consider it such and honor and a blessing. We can't have our baby girl with us this Christmas, but this would be a nice way to remember her ... All you have to do is click on the link, and under the picture click where it says RECOMMEND. You can vote once in every browser you have once a day!

I tried to vote, but when I went on your link, there was nothing there to vote. Let us know what we need to do.
I think the picture of Daisy is beautiful and that her and Thunder look so much a like. Thunder had less white under his nose, but still look the same. He was only 7 when he passed. Please let us know how to vote.
