Once in a lifetime....

We're heartbroken.

I knew it was coming, but I didn't know when and I didn't know how. 

Yesterday, we lost our beloved Chubba.

Now I know he wasn't human, but we loved him...and he loved us and this makes it easy for me to say.

The kids keep crying. BH wells up constantly, and me...well, I'm next to useless at the moment.  I know it'll pass.  I know we were lucky to have such a faithful friend.  I know we gave him a loving home, but I'll miss his head on my knee. I'll miss the feel of his soft head under my hands, his silky ears and his thumping tail.  I'll miss having to step over him at every turn, I'll miss the black dense hair on the floor, I'll miss walking peacefully with him. Chubba was that one of a kind dog.  The one you know that only comes along once in your lifetime.  That perfect fit. He gave love fiercely but never demanded.


But I'll miss him. My special boy. My beautiful boy.

  1. So sorry for your loss. Pets do become members of the family in their own right and it's heartbreaking when you lose them. Sending *hugs*

    1. It's been so sad. We miss him so much, but I'm thankful we had him! We had such joy, so we should be grateful. He was the only one that never answered back. xxx

  3. Poor Chubba, and poor you. Losing an animal quite often isn't any less painful than losing a person x

    1. It feels odd to be so heartbroken, even BH has been affected. Sad days, but we have such happy memories and lots of pictures and videos, so he's always with us.
