heavy hearts

we are sad.
our dog, nyah, died today.
she was a very old dog, and it was time.
{oh, how she loved tennis balls}
i've been trying to convince ned that
only nyah's body died.
that her spirit {the important part} did not die.
he maintains that it's just not fair.
of course, he is right.

in the sweetest effort
to help cheer and distract,
our friend, jolie, gave ned these
a happy meal on a sad day.
{thank you, jolie}

~ post edit ~
can you believe this? 
our friends, the larsen's,
brought us these tonight
{thank you, thank you, sweet friends}

do you see those grassy bits
under the outrageously fragrant coral roses?
it is a new carnation called green trick.
i read about it for the first time
at family chic.

So sad to hear of Nyah's passing. Pets are so special. Pam's book recommendation sounds perfect for Ned. Maybe you should have her picture framed and placed somewhere special in the house for him too.

I'm so sorry to hear about Nyah's passing, Catie. I know it's even more difficult since it's so hard on sweet Ned. Pam's book suggestion sounds like a wonderful idea. I'm so sorry.... it's so hard to lose a family member. xoxo

Catie, I know the loss of a pet is so very painful - I send you strength at this sad time! Your flowers are stunning - how kind of your friends to send you such a lovely and thoughtful gift.
Take care, Camilla Fabbri, Family Chic

I am so sorry Catie bug; a pet is so much part of a family. Nyah will be missed, but will always be there in spirit. A big hug and kiss to our sweet Ned also.

Catie, I am so, so sorry to hear about Nyah. It is very hard to lose someone you love :( I know that you gave Nyah the most wonderful home a doggie could ask for while she was on this earth. xoxoGretchen

Sorry Catie ....nyah looks like a real character ......the bigger the character the bigger the hole, what a lucky dog landing at your home.
