Maybe it sounds stupid, but through the years I've often thanked Jehovah for bringing her to me. The Bible says every gift and perfect present comes from above, and I really can't think of words that could better describe her...gift and perfect present. There've been times in my life when I truly thought she was the only thing that loved me and that she was my only friend. I feel so satisfied that for her short life she had it good...bones, walks, and lots and lots of love. What else could a dog want? I'll miss my little cheese burrito. If you're a pet parent, hug your fur child today and thank Jehovah for the chance to be their Mommy or Daddy.

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE
My friends and loyal blog followers, you all know about my beautiful fur child, Ollie, aka Mimi or Mi Niña. Well, unfortunately, she left us this morning at approximately 10am. My sweet baby held on for me to come back from the U.S. and we had 1 last good night together. Yesterday around noon, she started having trouble breathing. The vet came last night and felt her heart/lungs were failing. She had labored breathing all last night and then this morning started making her way out to the patio. She often likes to sit in the sun out there so I put her pillow out and laid her on top. Shelina and I sat by her and within about 5 minutes she was gone ending almost 11 years together.
