One year ago tomorrow, my beloved yellow lab Katie will be gone. She left us last year and my heart still aches. It was the hardest thing I ever did, letting go of that dog when all I wanted was her here with me.
Katie was a surprise first wedding anniversary gift to me from my husband. She took the place of the child I longed for all those years we could not have a baby. She was my best furry friend and she loved me.
I did not know that I was pregnant with Madeline the day I brought Katie to the vet that last day. God is good...I needed something to hang onto when my heart was so broken. I had a hard time with Katie leaving me and I was very sick with high fevers and such. I went to the doctor. They wanted a chest x-ray. I said to give me a pregnancy test "just in case" and God was good...pregnant!
As the date draws near, I find my heart hurting so much again. I will burst into tears at just the thought of my beloved dog, one of my "two labs" that I love. I know there are many doggie people out there that will understand...and I want to say thanks
in advance for your understanding.
I also know that my dog will meet me at Heaven's gates, as God would not make something so loving to just disappear once her time on earth was finished.
Katie...I love you still and miss you each and every day!
Meet me at the gate Katie...and I will expect "lovey bites" and "Katie kisses" when I get there!
