My heart is heavy tonight. I just received email from my sister-in-law in Jakarta saying that most likely they will have to put their dog, Barney, to sleep. Barney been with my brother and SIL since they started their married life 16 years ago. She's such a loyal dog and she adores my brother, Jeff so much. And even though she's a small dog, she's a great watch dog.
Please keep my brother and my SIL, and Barney in your prayer. I know many of you are dog lovers, so you know how dog is part of the family. To Jeff and Gina, I really wish I could be there with you, right now.
This is so hard. No words.
Updated: Barney has gone to doggies heaven and is with her sister Becky. She's such a loving dog. Very expressive, too. She's like a little human. :) I know my brother, Jeff, is feeling the lost right now. I feel the lost as well. Hugging my brother in my heart.
I think for every dog in your family, when they're gone, they took bits of your heart with them and they'll be waiting for us on the other side.
Rest in peace, Barney girl. You've been an amazing dog. We love you.
