When we got her I picked her out of the litter.... she only weighed 2 1/2 pounds. She fit right in the palm of my hand- and I have a small hand. She followed me around for the past 14 years. She had diabetes,congestive heart failure, liver disease, and finally kidney failure. When she reached the point where I knew she would suffer soon, I was holding her as the vet gave her those shots. It was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I kept kissing her little head and telling her how much I love her. I look at my house and everywhere she used to be .....such as right beside me when I took a bath or following me from room to room with her little toenails clicking. I look at the house and it feels empty. 14 years is a long time, but it's never enough . |
There's no words I have for my pain and her loss. But all the wonderful years she loved me unconditionally made me a better person. And I did everything I thought was right to take the best care of her. Right up until the very last minute and last breath. Izzy was and will always be my baby girl.
I'll never forget her beautiful expressive eyes looking at me. Those eyes that were once clear had turned cloudy with cataracts. I'll never forget the sound of her walking through the house. The toenails had seemed to slow down in their movement over the years but she was always there looking for me, knowing that I would always be there for her. And I always was. I love you Izzy- i love you so much and I miss you from the bottom of my heart
