She surprised us a few times over the past week with a sudden burst of energy that had her bouncing around the house like she always did, but yesterday was the day that I never wanted to come.
Over the past couple of days, Cuddles became incredibly weak and began to show signs that it was her time to go to a better place.
This is so hard for me to write, but I know that Cuddles is in a better place now.
She took her last breaths while lying in my arms. I know she wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. She went peacefully knowing she is loved more than any other dog in the world which gave me so much comfort.
She was my sister and best friend and always will be even though she is not physically with me anymore.
I will still think of her each and every day from now on. I know not a day will go by without saying a prayer for her and smiling over a favourite memory that I have of her.
I was able to spend a lot of time snuggling her yesterday before she left us. I am so blessed and grateful for that.
Showing my gratefulness has really helped me through this very hard time.
We celebrated Cuddles’ life at the most appropriate restaurant, Memories. We made a toast to Cuddles before our meals and talked about her the entire evening; sharing all of the wonderful memories we have been blessed with over the passed 16 years of Cuddles’ life.
We miss our girl so much already.
I love you Cuddles and always will. Forever and ever.
