It was around this time of year when I first met Prudence. This tiny 8 week old puppy, looking up at me from a shopping cart on the side of the road with her sweet eyes. I knew at that very second she had taken residency in my heart and there she would forever remain. She did not ever realize she grew from that tiny size. Maybe that is my fault because I carried her around until she was too heavy and allowed her to sleep on my chest every night when we watched TV. She curled up there like she was a tiny baby. I think she was staking her claim on my heart. Her favorite thing to do from the minute I got her until the minute she was laid to rest was cuddle with me. She did not want to be more than a few feet from me ever when I was home. We were always by each other's side. I miss her and there is an enormous void where she once was. She was the sweetest baby with a heart of gold.|
3/29/16- It has been so hard here with out you Prudence. This weekend was nearly unbearable. I expect you beside me when I wake up, so the mornings are another reminder that you are gone. Layla misses you. She cries often and looks around for you. When I make my smoothie in the morning I give her your pieces of spinach and green apple. I hope you do not mind. She really likes it. You are not ever far from my mind and always in my heart my baby girl.
Dear Prudence- today marks a year that has passed since I last held you in my arms. A year since I had to let you go. I miss you every single day. It has not gotten any easier. I do not think it ever will. I think I have to learn to make space for the pain and sadness that is left behind. Layla misses you too. She misses you so much. We tried to bring a foster in. I am sure you have found him by now. He had to leave us too. Prudence you brought so much joy into my life. There will forever be a void in my heart where you once were. I cannot wait for the day we meet again. You are my best girl prubear. I love you and miss you so much. Words could not ever describe what it is like without you now.
