Rest In Peace Nick

Tonight, my heart ache deeply. Hubby and I came back from our San Antonio trip early because we're worried about our doggy, Nick. My friend who doggy sitting for us called and told me how he's been throwing up.

When we came home, he gingerly stand up and then lay back down. I spent the whole afternoon sitting with him, caring for him. By night, he couldn't stand up. And I tried to make him drink by pressing wet paper towel to his lip.

About six months ago, he went through the same problem of throwing up and not eating. Vet said it might be liver problem and said he probably dying. I prayed that if it was his time then don't let him suffer and if it's not his time please let him be back to normal again. At that time, God gave him back to us. He was back to his bouncy self by the next day.

Tonight, I said the same prayer and God decided heaven is better for him. My heart ache so much and my head feel like it's hammering. He's my boy, my shadow. The one who follow me wherever I go, keep  me company when I am in my craft room. My protector. My boy.



Nick, you took a piece of my heart with you. Rest in peace my dear boy. Thank you for your love, your loyalty, your companionship. Part of our heart will always belong to you. Till we meet again my Nicki boy.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. It's good that he felt better for a while and is hopefully in good dog heaven and missing you and out of pain. It's so good that you prayed for him and left it up to God's wisdom to know when it was time to let go and that you will have God's warm embrace to help ease your sadness.
