Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Rudy

We are so very sad to say our sweet little Rudy had to be put to sleep yesterday.
He had been sick for a while and after a few trips to the vet we decided that his
suffering had to end.  Such a hard decision to make.  We've shed a thousand tears.
He was always such a gentleman.  He loved to cuddle and when it was cold he wanted
to sleep in our bed and we usually let him.  He was a rescue.  We found him
wandering the streets with no collar, so of course we had to take him home. We
tried to find his owners but to no avail.
He loved to go on walks but didn't  like rides in the car.  He followed
me all around the house.  He was afraid of men but eventually trusted the mister.
They would sit on the recliner and watch football on TV together
(such a macho little guy). He loved to lie in the sun and hated the cold. 
We were privileged to have him in our family for eleven years.
 He was just the best and we miss him so much.

Oh I'm so sorry Sue, it's so hard to lose pets, Rudy was such a cutie.

I lost my dog soon after we got married she had been in our family for 12 over years. Her name was Kid. I still miss her.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. I will call you later if I remember. Who is this?

So sorry to hear about your cute little doggie. I know how it is so difficult to make the decision but it is also hard to see them suffer. I had to put my German Shepherd dog down after 14 years back in 1987 and I still miss her.
I am so sorry

Oh I am so very sorry for your loss of Rudy. He was such an adorable little dog.. You know that tears are being shed as I write this thinking that we were in your shoes just a few weeks ago. It is so hard to make that decision but you just know when you have to do it. With us poor Boo was not sick at all. One day he was fine the next day he was gone...No time for us to process it. Think good happy thoughts that he is in a good place because remember...
All Dogs Go to Heaven....they really do. sending a big hug your way....Sue.

This is very belated.... but I'm so sorry, Mimi. I hope things are getting easier. It's always so hard to lose a pet but especially this time of year. We lost our very beloved Shitzu mut, Spotley this week three years ago.
