I'm thrilled for you. I know how heartbreaking it was to lose Tiki, and I know that Fae will help your heart heal.
Losing Tiki was exceptionally hard. I thought that Skoll had been the hardest to lose but Tiki proved that wrong. I think because she had been getting better and then suddenly got worse and crashed again right as they were prepping her for a surgical procedure to see why her health was so cyclical in the first place. She had been her happy, bouncey, regular self just an hour prior to me dropping her off. I said goodbye only a few hours after that. She was only 10 months. She deserved way longer than that.
I kept waking up and reaching for her because she wasn't in her regular spot, only to wake up in a panic that I couldn't find her and then realize why she wasn't in bed with me. Every night I looked for her and every night I had the same reaction. I woke up crying for her more nights than I didn't. My entire life was disrupted by the loss.
When Fae came home it was like a ray of sunshine. I can sleep again. I wake up to sweet kisses and happy tail wags. Creed had been doing his best to comfort me but it wasn't enough, it wasn't the same. And Fae's not the same either, but she's something, and Creed's something, and I think together it's finally enough.
I was just thinking of you yesterday, when my NH Dobe person mentioned she was at a seminar in VT with her Rebholzer boy. Glad all is well with you and yours! More Fae picks??
Oh, Fox's owner? I'm sad to have missed them, I picked up Fae the weekend prior and couldn't justify the time off work for a second weekend in a row, so sad to have missed it (and them!)
Judgement for duckies
And some boing, too.
