Taking Time to Grieve

Taking Time to Grieve

This blog post will be incredibly short as the day that I never wanted to come is near.  Tomorrow I will be saying goodbye to my beloved Jolie – my canine companion for over fourteen years.

Jared and I will be lavishing her with treats, sniffing excursions outside in her favorite sections of grass (near trash cans, please) and giving lots of lots of snuggles this weekend.

I can't stop crying.

I am not sure when Work, Play and Chardonnay will be back as I taking time to grieve my Lady Underbite.

This photo was taken last night.  She is living her best life down to her final days.

One last quote that was in an email from the service we are using to honor our final moments with our girl.  It's gut-wrenching yet captures my feelings perfectly.

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

I love you, Jolie.  I will always, always, always be your doggie mom.
