Sad SEPIA Saturday
Dear auntie Marsha and uncle Sam,
momma told us that Puff has now joined Andy at the Rainbow Bridge. Momma sat us down and told us and we watched her leak from her eyes. I know she is sad, and know you are sad, and that makes me sad. But I have to tell you it is entirely a selfish sadness.
You loved Puff enough to let him go when his time here became all about the pain. You helped him to a better place. How lucky for him. You loved him this much. For now, grieve. It is what we all must do. But do not let your grief question your love. You loved enough to place Puff's needs above your own feelings. Thank you for that. Puff would thank you himself for that.
Sadness is for the empty space he left behind. Space that memories, nostalgia and love will fill and keep. The sadness will eventually become woven into that fabric of memories and while it is will be there, it will be a single strand in an otherwise rich tapestry of what will be known as "the Andy and Puff time".
I bet Andy was there at the gate waiting with his tail wagging and what a blitz must have followed! The TBFR contingency must have been there in full force, both two leggeds and four leggeds TBFR family welcoming home one of their own. I bet we missed one heck of a party.
Uncle Sam, hang in there. Our whole Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue family is grieving. If you need an extra snuggle, I am available.
Auntie Marsha, you know you can come by anytime, no questions, no discussion, we will take care of you.
