Chelsea

Chelsea, my beloved "little girl," has passed. She was almost 15 years old. That spark of energy, that loyal companion who was always happy to see or hear me, that 6 lb body of joy and love that never failed me, is gone.

If only human beings could learn to be a fraction of how our pets are to others. To forgive, to never give up, to never break loyalty and always try to make you happy and show concern. We miss her little whimper when she wanted to do her business outside, we miss the sound of her toenails on the hardwood floors, we miss the love she demonstrated to us every day.

Rarely a trip she wasn't on with us, rarely a walk in the woods she wasn't leading us, rarely a moment we were apart.

God gave me a gift 15 years ago, and I have given her back. I can thank him for that, but there will remain a hole in my heart. We miss her dearly....
