An Unexpected Loss ~

I am sad.  So so so sad.  We had to say good-bye to our sweet little Junior Bug ~ 

He was fine last Sunday night.  Then, Monday morning he wasn't fine anymore.  We did everything for him that we could, but he was diagnosed with acute Pancreatitis.  Before we knew it, he was too sick to save.  His little heart gave out in a matter of hours.

He was a high-spirited, sassy, loud little guy.  He brought joy and laughter to everyone who knew him.

He is the third fur-baby we've lost in less than a year and a half.  For the first time in 14 years, we have no pets.  

He was my baby.  He was my friend.  He played next to me while I gardened and stood under my feet while I cooked.  He kept me company in my studio and his personality inspired my artwork.

I miss him terribly.  I don't like good-byes.  It was so unexpected.  This time last week, he was fine.  Now....he's gone.

My heart feels lonesome and I'm still trying to make sense out of the loss.  But, I am so very grateful that he was such a huge part of our life.  He made us smile and laugh everyday.  

RIP Junior Bug. ♥♥
