Goodbye to our old friend…

December 11, 2007 at 9:24 pm 4 comments

We had to say good-bye to our old friend Zoey today. Zoey was our beloved Lab, she would have been 13 on Valentine’s day. We have had her since our daughter was 3 years old, she can’t even remember a time without Zoey in our family.


This picture of Zoey was taken in October, on her way to the vet’s office. October was when she started going downhill, but it’s only in the past few weeks that she really took a turn for the worse. She loved going in the car, and even to the vet’s office!

My sweet Hubby took her to the vet today, in the car (her favorite) to have her put to sleep. He got the toughest job. I just stayed home and sat on the couch with Christine, all snuggled up, while cried together. Joshua was down for his nap during most of it, but he was up for the beginning of it. Christine crying, and Joshua laughing.

Joshua laughs hysterically when someone is sobbing. I don’t know what it is about it that he finds so humorous, but he laughs his booty off. It’s mainly a good thing though. It’s tough to be sad with Josh there laughing and so happy. During one of her sobbing spells today, Christine said “I wish I was like Joshua!”. He is our boy who is always happy! He does, of course, get hurt and cry, and he worries when mama leaves him with someone, but he’s oblivious to to stuff like the dog dying. He’s oblivious at this stage in his life, I don’t know if he’ll remain that way or not as he grows.

She was such a sweet girl, we’ll miss our Zoey!

Love one another,

    I’m so sorry Yvonne. (Hugs) Losing a pet is one of the toughest things.

    Thinking of all of you….

    {{{Yvonne}}} What a precious pooch! I love the pic. Our dogs are getting up there in years as well and I think how strange it will be when we don’t have them anymore.
    It’s wonderful you have such a fun little guy to keep things light :)

    Yvonne, My heart goes out to you and your family. We had a 3 1/2 year old yorkie die a year ago this month. My husband and I still cry when we think of the loss of such a friend. He was so young.

    I’m so sorry about your puppy. I guess I am a little late reading this.
