Saying Goodbye To A Furry Friend...

Maddie and Junior last fall...

Caden and Junior last spring...

I have no light-hearted post for today, for my heart is feeling heavy with grief...You see, yesterday was one of those days that we all hate to face, even though we know it is inevitable--saying goodbye to a family pet.

Junior entered our lives approximately nine years ago. He became my daughter and her husband's first "child"--hence the name "Junior". That being the case, of course, Junior became my first "grandchild", too.

We have many fond memories of Junior from the past nine years. He was a faithful, loyal friend to all of us, and even to the grandchildren after they came along. He spent many happy days watching the children playing in the yard.

It's been hard this past year, watching Junior's health decline. He suffered so much these past few weeks, it's been difficult to watch. As hard as it was to say goodbye, it's a relief to know that he's finally at peace now. Rest in peace faithful friend...you'll be sorely missed.
