Holly: July 2000 — December 27, 2016

 

My baby’s kidneys had been ailing for the past year, and they finally failed her over Christmas.  She bravely fought a losing battle, and I will never forget her love of her humans which she conveyed to us until her very last breath.  We took her to the vet this afternoon — she is now resting in our building’s ample garden, very near the spot where we already buried Gypsy and Tiger.  I want to believe that they are reunited in a happy place.

Apologies for not having been around lately (nor will I likely be in the next couple of days).  I am crying as I type this, and as is so often the case, one major event follows on the heels of another — more on the other things going on in my life later, at a more convenient moment.

I hope everybody else had a Merry Christmas — and a Happy New Year to one and all, in case it should take me until next year to resurface here.

Lots of love to one and all!

  1. I’m so sorry – there aren’t many things harder than losing a beloved pet. I’m still hurting after giving up my girl Daisy almost two years ago, and that wasn’t a death. *hugs*

    1. Thank you — and than you for the beautiful present! I will reciprocate soon … I confess I’ve been so preoccupied (not merely with Holly) I didn’t even spare a thought for Christmas all December long. Please also say hello for me to Bettie and Wanda if you should speak to them — I haven’t been in touch with either for a long time, either.

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]
