Year of Loss



Our sweet dog Jelly Bean died today; lying by the Christmas tree, her doggy heart gave out. She lived a long life, and even had some Christmas ham yesterday.

We will miss her "I live for treats" attitude, her simple companionship. She used to follow us around while we worked on the garden, just happy to be outside in the sun, happy to be with us. We are glad she had one more Christmas in her.

May she roam in peace, in endless gardens of treats.

I am so very, very sad to hear of your loss.

I will light a candle for Jelly Bean. She must have felt very lucky to have been loved by you. I hope it is some comfort to you that she left in peace and comfort and contentment.

I will be thinking of you. Please email if you need anything.
