Heartbroken

It has been a very tough few days. Late Friday evening I had to put my beloved sweet hound to sleep. He was taken ill suddenly while we were away on holiday with him and sadly his poor old heart couldn’t cope with fighting an infection and keeping going.

I have so very much to be grateful for. I had the pleasure of his company 24/7 for 5 days when we were on holiday. He was with all his very favourite people and in one of his favourite places during that time too. I rescued him at the age of ten so to have him for 5 longs years was a complete blessing as I only expected to have him for 2 years. I really was so very lucky.

But it is so very, very hard. I miss him enormously.

This Irish blessing seems to suit the moment perfectly as my little man loved to have his face in the sun.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

RIP my beautiful, special houndlet.
