Rest In Peace Dearest Dolly

      153 Comments on Rest In Peace Dearest Dolly

To say we are devastated would be an understatement.  I took Dolly to the Internal Medicine Vet today for her 10 O’Clock appointment.  I was always worried taking her, she had such a terrible time riding in the car.  They took her bloodwork and right after she threw a blood cot.  They got her back and she immediately threw another one and she was gone, gone forever.

I wish you all could have met our Dolly.  She was a real sweetheart and wanted nothing more that to be loved.  Her Mom and I were indeed honored to provide that love.  Our house is lonely without you sweet Dolly.  We’ll love you forever, always. Mom, Dad, Brian, Simon and Seal.

Note:  We will be back on Thankful Thursday, we just can’t blog right now.

    I’m absolutely devastated as are all of us who know you all are at this news……..How horrible for all of you and her as well. I wish I had some sort of magic words to say to make it “all better” like we do with kids – but there isn’t a thing that can be said when the death is sudden and unexpected except we are so sorry. Dolly was precious – adorable – beautiful – those eyes mesmerized all of us who knew her. I’m sending you all a BIG HUG even though it’s a small thing in the scheme of something as huge as this loss.

    Love, Pam and Teddy
