My sweet girl, Oreo
Tuesday, September 06, 2016
Last week we had to put our Oreo to sleep. That was the hardest thing Ive ever been through, I was completely devastated.
We were always together, day & night, for 12 wonderful years. She was our hiking buddy and loved playing with her Frisbee. Get her around water and you couldnt get her out.
That night, my DH asked if the lady we got Oreo from had any new puppies and after crying for a steady 24 hours I knew I needed to do something so I looked, first at the Border Collie Rescue site then her page and there was nothing but I did find another batch of puppies born on June 1. Oreo was born on June 2.
I spent an agonizing morning wondering if I was ready for a puppy so soon then I read a letter sent to me by a friend and there was this paragraph that touched me. It said “I will await your arrival as we are always meant to be together. Please do not hold onto the love that you shared with me, but share it with another so that I may live on forever in your heart. “ I will miss you forever and remember all the things we did together with a grateful heart.
I taught her to smile by puffing out her lips, so adorable.
In loving memory of Oreo June 1, 2004 - August 29, 2016
So meet Belle, Oreo would be proud of her little sister and knowing we are sharing our love.
