I'm sorry Val

Posted Dec 28th, 2006 at 05:45 PM by

On Valentine's Day when I was 7 my grandma picked my sisters and I up from school and brought us home for lunch. She said that my parents had to go out to do some business thing or something. Halfway through lunch my parents arrived home and this little white puppy came running into the family room, jumping all over us and wagging her tail like it was about to fall off. On account of the day, we named her Valentine.

Today we just got back from putting her to sleep at the vets. She was 15 and she had a good, long life and she was starting to really deteriorate quickly so it was unfair to keep her alive any longer.
This should make it hurt less, but it doesn't.

    As you say at least Val had a great life, but it would still be hard.

    I miss my dog now too

    It's tough. But try and recall the great times you had with her.

    It is an unfortunate truth that we never fully appreciate or realize the true importance of someone in our lives until we lose that someone. And all the words in heaven and on earth can never fill the emptiness that has been left by Val's passing.
