More loss

My Baby Arwen ( June 2004-September 2012)

Hot dog!  helping grilling out

Napping or sleeping, Arwen always loved the bed spread Cynthia sent me

She just always had this sad little face

But she never had a sad day in her life. She was always filled with love and joy

She always had to be near me no matter what.  She definitely was a Mommy's girl

And she always let Frodo know who was boss!

And she always loved Mr. Frodo

So when Frodo called her, she followed him and is with her life long companion
Yes we've had more loss in our house.  Twelve days after Frodo's death, we had to let our little Arwen go too.  She was fine until about a week after Frodo's death when she started to stop eating no matter what I gave her.  Friends all over Facebook told me to try this and try that...Cesars, fried eggs, steak, name it.  I tried to feed her everything that I could think of, and she refused it all.  Then she began to show the signs of renal failure.  Our hearts were just breaking because we were just not ready to let another beloved Scottie go.  But she told us that she could not stay with us anymore, so on the 10th in the afternoon, we had to make that last trip to the Vet with her and say good bye.  It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.  Only because Chris was there with me, was I able to handle it without totally falling apart.  We were just numb coming home to only Fiona.  We still are numb, but so many people have reached out to us with cards, e-mails, flowers, cookies, and even a St. Francis medal to keep Fiona safe.  Each day we have so many memories of each of our darling Scotties.  Each day I miss them both.  They were so innocent, so loving, so devoted.  Now we have to move along living our lives with just Fiona.  She's 12 1/2 so we decided to be fair to her, we were not bringing another Scottie into our house.  We are going to spoil our old girl while remembering all those that we've loved so much.

I know the pain in your heart is crushing and tears will flow for a while. But, take peace in knowing the love you all had was glorious and you will all be together again.
