Rainbow Bridge Welcomes Another Sweet Soul.
Eight days ago, I made the decision to relieve my Sasha of her suffering here on earth.
I have been overwhelmed with grief, and even though I know she's in a better place, I cannot stop feeling guilty. The guilt doesn't stem from making the wrong choice, but rather in thinking that I let her linger in pain for much too long. Even now, I know that she probably could have, would have lived another year. She was such a good dog. This has been one of the worst weeks of my life.
There hasn't been one day since last Monday that I haven't cried.
This photo was taken just 30 minutes prior to the vet coming to the house.
I had been crying all day.
Sasha was more than just a dog to me. You see, I never had kids of my own so I considered her my baby.
It's always just been me, Justin and Sasha. Our little family.
Sasha's been to almost as many states as I have.
She's gone on every single vacation with us except for three.
I have a foot locker full of photos and last night I spent a couple of hours going through them searching for pictures of a healthy, vibrant and happy Sasha.
There are so many stories I want to share because remembering those times makes me feel good.
But for now, I just want you all to know, that I will be back soon.
I just need a little time to mourn my loss.
And then I will bombard you with pictures of Sasha, like when she tried climbing a tree chasing a cat.
