Two weeks ago we lost our baby girl, Jessie. When she was first taken into rescue, she was named Sugar. We quickly learned why. She was absolutely the sweetest dog I have ever known. She lived to be on someone's lap, anyone's lap! She slept up against me for nearly eight years. She knew when I hurt. She knew when I was sad. She just knew. These were the times she never left my side. We connected at a heart level. We had a bond. I am so grateful for the time I had with her. Losing her has left a void in my life that will not go away for a long time. I miss her terribly, but I know she is running around in heaven, chasing those pesky birds and squirrels, with her best friend, Tucker. I truly hope she knows how much she was loved.
