Words are hardly sufficient for the gratitude that Hubby and I have for all the wonderful messages we have received over the last few days. Over one hundred emails have poured in from around the world with words of encouragement and sympathy at the loss of our dear Harper. I don't have the wherewithal to reply to each of you individually, but know that every heartfelt word was read and appreciated.
Our hearts are heavy with sadness for ourselves but still there is solace in the knowledge that there was no suffering. She knew her time to leave us had come and simply went to sleep. The paw print she left on our hearts can never be filled. And we would never trade the joys experienced by having her in our lives to alleviate this pain. The memories of all the joys she brought to us are invaluable. And maybe someday the tightness in our hearts will ease, leaving room for some new paws to leave their imprint.
When you get an itch, scratch it!
