In loving memory...

It brings me to tears just to think about what I'm about to type but seeing as how she was my fur baby and a star once or twice on the site, I felt it only right to share her memory with all of you.

Yesterday while at job 1, I received a call that nearly stopped my heart.  My little fur baby, Ashley, had been in the hospital for the past two days as they tried to get her blood sugar straightened out and as it turns out, it wasn't simply that which was causing her health to fail.  They discovered a large tumor on her pancreas which treated or not, would unfortunately leave us with the same same, bitter ending.  I had two options and as I couldn't bare to put her through any more suffering just so I could have her by my side a little longer, I made the call.

It was one of the hardest decisions of my life and one I can only hope she understood.  She joins now her brothers and sister in that great big dog park in the sky and I will carry her in my heart every day that we're apart.


Favorite pastimes:  Laying about, playing tug (aggressively) with her "hubby" (Mom's dog, Hamilton), being adorable to a fault
Favorite snack:  Almost any...but favorites would be Milk Bones and Milo treats
Favorite toy:  Again, almost any...but especially her Pig Bunny; a pink piggy with rabbit ears.

I will miss you my sweet girl.
Rest in peace.
