I'll Miss Her
My favorite dog, Zoe, passed away on Thursday. My mom called me after work to tell me the news. It's been several days but I can't stop thinking about what a loss it is to me and my family. I never thought I'd be emotional about a pet passing but I will truly miss the brown-spotted Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
I think the holidays make her passing a little sadder because each year on Christmas all the girls in the house would take a picture in front of the tree together, which basically means it was my mom, sister, our two dogs, Lucy and Zoe, and myself. We have many family pictures with her because we all genuinely thought of her as part of our family.
For 13 years Zoe brought so much joy to our house and our hearts. Even though it's been years since I've shared a home with her she will always be my favorite dog, my Zoe-girl and I will miss her dearly.
For all you pet owners out there, love on your furry friends a little more tonight and be grateful for their presence in your home during the holidays. Here to you Zoe!
