Hello fellow bloggers and crafting friends.
Tonight I'm terribly sad and not even colouring seems to be helping. Today I had to make the decision to let my beautiful friend and companion Shelby go off to wherever it is that dogs go.
This beautiful girl has shared my life for the past 12 years (almost) and will be sadly missed. It was one of those decisions that you don't want to make and it broke my heart.
All I can say is thank goodness I got to come home to my other beautiful girl ... my 2 1/2 year old daughter Madalyn. Her smiles and cuddles helped ease the loss. And of course there really wasn't a lot of time to be upset as I had to get back to "Mummy duties".
But now that Madalyn is in bed ... my heart is heavy once again.
My blog Shelby In Colour ... is of course named after my dog ... and the little photo I use when I visit people's blogs is also of Shelby. I may have to change the photo ..... I will see how I feel as time goes on ... but a the moment it makes me cry to see it.
I know to some people a dog is just that .... a dog. But for so many years this girl was part of me ... she was my baby and I will miss her terribly.
So there will probably be no card tonight ..... but here are some photos for you .......
R.I.P. my beautiful girl xoxoxoxoxxooxxoxoxoox
