Warning: if you don't want to read sappy, emotional stuff don't read on....
My companion of almost 15 years was laid to rest today. He has been here through my younger 4 children coming home from the hospital, letting them take over his dog house and sitting with them on top of the same dog house to the emotional trauma of divorce and the life changes it brings to a family.
I don't care what others say, Meatball was the greatest dog on earth. I can't stand thinking of him laying out there covered in earth...instead of curled up in a ball on the carpet.
He got old and ill....I couldn't help him any longer and am feeling so badly for it. I can't stop crying because of not being able to help him and hang on to him longer so he can be with his family.
I was thinking out loud today to the kids and said "animals are buried with their favorite toy but Meatball was too old to have toys anymore"....we buried him with a picture of all of us...we were his favorite everything.
You will be missed for a VERY long time Ball Ball Baby.
taking a bit of a blog break for some down time to mend my sore heart
see you soon
