Saying Goodbye: Not So Wordless Wednesday

Last week we said goodbye to our almost 15 year old Border Collie, Krusty. My husband got him as a puppy way back in 1996 and I came on the scene 9 years later. Krusty accepted me into the family and we became fast friends. I never really understood “dog people” before, but here I am missing our old friend.

When we pray for Oscar at night, we ask Jesus to give him sweet dreams and peaceful rest. I knew I would have to tell him something when Krusty was no longer here, so I told him that he would be going to sleep and he would be with Jesus.

Oscar asked, “Will he be having sweet dreams?” Choking back tears I said, “yeah buddy, he will.”

Sweet Dreams boy. We already miss you.

    you meant a lot to him, too. things will be different but we will always have pictures like this one to remind us of the good times.

    I’m so sorry! I choked back tears just reading that. We’ll be praying for the Lords peace and comfort as you learn of life without him.

    I have only very recently become a dog person, and this makes me so sad for you, especially after seeing you guys all together a few weeks ago. He was a sweet dog, even if he wanted nothing to do with me, and you guys were great doggie parents. I hope you can find peace, too. <3

    Sometimes I pull into the driveway after work and at that moment remember he’s not with us anymore…like I haven’t thought about him all day and then for a split second, I think he’s there. His favorite purple ball is still in the front yard.

    Coming up on 4 weeks since we said goodbye and reading this post and the comments still chokes me up. I find that anytime I think of him, I get sad. Looking forward to the day I can remember the good times and be happy again.

    I miss you, boy.
