Tribute to Hercules

Hello my dear sweet friends -

Hope you are all doing well.  

I am amazed I am finally back on blog land.  I have tried so many times to make a new post but couldn't find the buttons I needed through the G+ arrangement.  So frustrating and finally decided to ask for help from my friends - and once I did - I find what I need hidden in the mix of other buttons.  I just hope I can find it again and wish I knew why I had been struggling.  I am usually good at figuring this stuff out but then had to put it aside again due to family stuff (see below).
Anyway - problem solved (hopefully).

I first wanted to make a post about my best furry friends Hercules.  He has been by my side almost non-stop for 13.5 years and sadly he passed away on Sunday. I miss him so much!!  I knew I would lose him one day however my prayer has always been for me to be with him when its his time to go to doggie heaven.  I feel so blessed my prayer was answered even though it was painful to see him slip away (very peacefully though).  Emotionally I am hanging in there - it helps to be with my daughters and grandsons.  I would do just about anything if I could have him back but since that won't happen I just need to figure out how to move on day by day.  Hercules only weighed 4.5 pounds but his heart was HUGE and his impact on my life was PROFOUND.  He touched the heart of every person he met and made a lasting impression.  Oh the impact this little guy had on people - you would have thought he was one of the Beatles or Elvis Presley.  I do however believe he had the strongest and most profound life changing impression on me.  My heart is broken and at the same time I am so thankful and grateful that God had created this little guy just for me.  I miss him terribly!!  

More later -
Hugs

  3. Laine, It's so painful to lose a part of the 'family' and I mourn with you. What a cutie he was. He'll fill your memories and, as time passes, there will be more sweet memories and fewer painful ones. May God bring you comfort. Hugs, NC
