I’m truly so very sorry. She sounds like she’s your *Heart Dog* that special one who shares your soul. I won’t try and minimize what’s happening or sugar coat it, you already know, you’re already grieving. So here are something’s I wish I’d know-keep a journal and start writing down all those sweet funny and quirky things she does daily. Take happy videos and pictures. When the time comes keep her personal possession in a plastic air tight bag, like her collar, toys or blanket. Her scent will be soo very special. Ask for paw prints clay and ink on paper. Some like a fur clipping.
My girl died just after she turned 12. She saved my life as well, and made it worth living. Their unconditional love is like none other I’m not very religious but I do have faith and I believe we all have souls that never die, even when are bodies are gone. I believe my Tankie is always near by and cherish the signs I’m given that prove to me she is. After all, I’m still her Mommy❣️ We’ll be here for you. Things are crazy in the world right now and responses may be slower but we are here for each other. Many big hugs for you and your girl,,,,,
Lynn, Tankie’s mom, forever
