With Heavy Heart ~


Dear DSO and I had to help Ellie cross the Rainbow Bridge this morning.  They don't know why things went so wrong but she was not going to recover.  It is one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make, but it was the right decision for Ellie.  We are heartbroken.
 
Since I am a pug girl at heart, I called her my "pug in the witness protection program". 
 
 
She loved to sleep under the covers . . .
 
 
. . . fall over to get belly rubs . . .

. . . curl up on her favorite blankie . . .
 
 
. . . hang out with Jake . . .
 
 
. . . and bury bones in my wool baskets.
 
 
My Ellie rug.  A True Friend says it all.
 
 
Run fast and free, Miss Ellie. 
 
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for all the kind comments, Facebook messages and emails.  It is heartwarming to know so many people care.
 
xoxo
Lauren

  42. Lauren, I am deeply sorry for your loss of dear sweet Ellie. I always have a laugh at seeing her picture with the footnote about the witness protection. I love Jack Russells and has been just over a year, since I lost my little Jack, Maddy. I hope that whoever or whatever attacked Ellie, realizes your loss and makes things right. I have tears writing this. Blessings.
