Sculptress of Scare
Well, the day I've been dreading for some time finally arrived. Yesterday morning at 10:00, my almost 13 yr old lab is finally at peace. She's been such a trooper, but I knew in my heart that it was time to let go. I've had several dogs over the years and Emily is the first one that I stayed with while the injection was given. She died a peaceful death with me holding and stroking her, knowing that she was very much loved. I will miss this little girl very much. She had a very good life and certainly added to the quality of mine. I'm still so emotionally raw right now and can't seem to stop weeping at the thought of her. I know that time will ease the pain, but I just need to get through this most difficult part. Maybe now I can finally get some much needed sleep. Here's a recent pic of Miss Emily Ann Franklin...RIP my sweet...you'll always be remembered with love.
