“There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.” – Aeschylus
One week since you’ve been gone... I can’t talk or think about you without choking on my tears.
Our walks are the hardest - I feel the sting of your absence every step of the way. Sometimes I stop in my tracks and look around, thinking I might hear the jingle of your name tag, you running up to me from around this tree or that ... But then again, you would have never left my side if you were here, so I know I’m only daydreaming. I wonder, just how many times can a heart break?! I take solace only in the hope that there are endless trails where you are, and you are running free of pain, chasing all the squirrels your heart desires.
You brought out the best of me and filled my life with joy. You let me lean on you in my darkest hour and asked for nothing but a walk and belly rub in return (and maybe a pizza crust or two). You never judged and were always there to listen. You made my kids better people and taught them what selflessness, loyalty and unconditional love mean. Your smile and wagging stub lit up our home on the good days and the bad. I don’t know what we did to deserve you, but we must have done something right! You will live in our hearts always I want to express my immense gratitude to @tarheel_weim_rescue whose dedicated team of volunteers and fosters brought my Coco Grace into our lives on St. Paddy’s Day five years ago. Our adventures took us all across the US and even across the pond to our newfound home in the UK. I hope these snippets of our favorite moments together bring inspiration to those in the rescue community who work tirelessly in the name of dogs like Coco. And I want you all to know she was loved beyond measure!
Coco lost her month-long battle with DCM on Wednesday, Feb 28th, one month short of her seventh birthday. All was covered in a pristine blanket of white and the world stood seemingly as crossed over the rainbow bridge, taking her last breath in my arms in the comfort of our home. #inlovingmemory #alldogsgotoheaven #pawprintsonmyheart #rainbowbridge #restinpeace #weimaraner #dogsofinstagram
#FeelGoodFriday : She's off!! Many a tear were shed ... Fostering is hard, y'all! For months now we've been working toward this little nugget's recovery and finding her the loving furever home she deserves, yet I couldn't help but feel mixed emotions as I watched her depart today Have the very best life, Tochka - hope you bring as much joy to your new lucky family as you did into our lives in just a few short months (swipe for a now & then view)
Well apparently @instagram found the video of my nekked little prince getting down on the beach was in violation of their community guidelines and removed it So in rebellion, here's another sweet shot of my sunshine loving life and not giving a hoot about social media guidelines I dare you to find this offensive! And if you do and feel the need to report me, please unfollow and get a life!
