Heaven is where...
...you meet all the dogs you ever loved- from a sign on my parent's wall.
I am not the type of person to let my heart stay full of negative thoughts and emotions. I try to welcome each day with optimism, love, wonder, and kindness. When a large space in your heart, that has only known love and happiness, suddenly turns blue, it takes extra effort to find the positive, keep smiling, and remember the wonderful blessings you have in life. Today that place in my heart went blue.
In October of 2005 we went to the grocery store, where Henrico Humane had set up outside. I fell in L.O.V.E. with this white dog with the brown eye. She was calm, happy, cool as a cucumber. Her picture stuck with me and through constant pressure the boyfriend, now hubs, finally cracked!!! He adopted her and brought her home 1 week before Christmas. He knew it was highly frowned upon in the pet adoption circles to give dogs as a gift.... we live dangerously! For almost 5 years this precious white dog has given all of her love and energy to being the best dog a human could ask for. She learned to sleep in a sleeping bag, ride in a car crammed with camping gear, chase bubbles in a mountain stream, and catch crabbies at the beach. She has given licks and love to everyone that has crossed our threshold!
We are so sad to see her go, but so happy we were lucky enough to have adopted her. She is a part of our family and will be missed tremendously.
Love you Blitzie!!!!
