My sweet Kerry boy.
On October 27th. my world came crashing down when my beloved Cavelier King Charles Spaniel died in my arms of a heart attack or stroke. Just before he died he laid back and kissed my cheek and my son's cheek. Kerry was a registered Therapy Dog and my shadow. He had been my Mom's dog until she passed and we became his family. Seeing how devoted he was to her, I could never imagine that he would show that devotion to anyone else, but he did. For 12 years he was part of my life and followed me everywhere. When we first met his eyes weren't even open and I held him in the palm of my hand. How fitting that he died, cradled in my arms. I begged God not to take him, not now, but when I saw the pain he was in, my love for him was too great and I told him it was time for him to go to be with his first mommy. I said I'd be alright, I lied, I'm not at all alright. The pain is literally gut wrenching. He would scratch at the door when I took a bath until I let him in. I talked to him when my Mom died as we both loved her so. He was there through a very sad time of my life and would literally hug me and kiss away my tears as I cried. I am lost without him even though I have 3 other dogs, we were the closest because of our bond of loss. I was blessed to have in in my life and I would have done anything for him.
If I could just hold him one more time, take him for one more walk or car ride, I'd do anything, pay any price. I've been through this 6 times in my life and every time, I say never again, but how do you say "no" to a love of your life. Rest in peace little man, Grandma will watch over you now. Thank you for everything, I will forever love you and miss you. You have been my life angel and you will never be forgotten.
