Goodbye Mabel

Almost three weeks ago, I said goodbye
to my beloved Mabel. She lived a full sixteen years.
My old friend's age caught up with her.

I cried as the vet told what I already knew.
I had to let her go. I stayed with her, as she was put to sleep.

Mabel was with me through my single days to my
pregnancy to see me get married and become a mom.
She got to know Jacob who she protected so fiercely
when I pregnant.

There at times I feel her spirit with me.
Goodbye, my sweet Mabel. We will meet again.

My heart breaks for you! I know exactly how you feel... I had to make that decision w/my Cairn years ago...Just think you and Mabel enriched each other's lives...

I'm so sorry. Our fur babies become such a part of our family. My little girl will be twenty next month and the two of us grew old together. She's still pretty strong, but I know I have to stop fooling myself. It's heartbreaking.

I am so sorry to hear about Mabel Shell, and sorry too to send wishes so late as I missed this post. It is so difficult when a loved one leaves. x
