Shoo-Fly was adorable! And your story really touched my heart. You write beautifully and eloquently, expressing in words what most of us feel at the passing of a beloved fur baby. I hope time has eased some of the sharp edges of your pain but know that we are never quite really the same after they cross the rainbow bridge. I choose to believe that it opens the doors of our hearts to pour even more love into our next beloved friend. Many blessings to you and Shoo-Fly.
