I'll See You Again My Sweet Lola

Monday, January 18, 2016

This past Friday, for a brief moment, started like any other day. We woke up, woke the baby up and I went to check on Lola and clean up her mess (her heart meds made her pee all the time so we had pee pads down for her at night). She had made a pretty big mess (I was never mad, she couldn't help it), I said, "Oh, Lola. You made a big mess." I turned to look at her and she didn't seem responsive, then I touched her face and knew...she had passed. Our sweet girl had gone to doggy heaven.

I had posted back in November that she wasn't doing well but after our visit to the cardiologist on New Years Eve I was feeling optimistic. And Lola was starting to act like her old self. But I guess there wasn't much we could do any more. My heart is truly broken as this chapter of our lives closes. I randomly cry during the day, mainly when I come home and she isn't there to greet me like she always did. I cry sometime when I walk past where she should be. Sometimes I think I hear her snorting or I think I hear the bells she would ring to go outside.

Rest in Peace my darling Lola, I will forever miss you and your sweet, sweet face.

  1. Ohhh gosh Alexa....I can't read this without getting really upset. I know how much you loved her...it's how the breed is. They are just so unconditionally loving and emotional you can't help but fall head over heels for them. You did everything you could and kept her comfortable and never let on that it was bad she made messes...you were the best mom ever. I sure will miss her stories. Take care and take time to heal.
