Saying Goodbye.

This morning, we had to say goodbye to our sweet Beagle/Basset/Border Collie, Molly.

It completely breaks my heart.

But I know she was ready to go and I know she's now in a better place.

My precious Braedan included in his family prayer this evening, "...and bless Molly that she feels better in Heaven..."

I have had this sweet dog since I was 17.

Before I was married, before I had kids.

She was there through all those changes in my life...

Letting her go today was one of the toughest things I've had to do.

She's battled Addison's Disease for several years now and has had lots of health scares in between, but always pulled thru it.

Today, she wasn't so lucky and I am so sad.

I wish I had the picture my parents took the day I got small and so cute! Fit in one of my hands!

I just fell in love with her the moment I saw her and have loved her dearly since.

It will take some getting used to not having her around after nearly 12 years...and I'm not yet convinced the kids or other dogs (my parent's dog and our 1 year old pup, Shiloh) quite understand that she is gone.

You will be missed, my sweet, sweet Molly.
