    Remembering Amber

    This past Thursday was a sad day at our house. Our husky Amber died. I woke to a deep howl around 6:30am and when I came up stairs to check on her she was lying on her bed. She was wagging her tail but could not move much. Slowly her breathing and heartbeat dropped lower and lower until she died in my arms. As she slipped away I thought back on the last 7 years she was in our lives. She was the first dog I have ever had of my own. My son Austin and I picked Amber up at the shelter even before I was married or had met my hubby. She had been abused and I remember on the way home she kept trying to sit in my lap. :) She just loved being around us and quickly became a member of the family.

    She was such a wonderful dog, she was a funny dog too. I remember the time she got into cupcakes I had made for the kids to decorate for a birthday party. We had returned from a movie to find 22 cupcakes had been eaten! The only trace as to what had happened to them was the lick prints left on the platter.

    I know some people won’t get why I’d write a post about my dog, but to those who are animal lovers or have pets of their own… They will understand what it means to lose a pet. It’s like loosing a family member. I will say this it has been really hard the last few days coming home and only being greeted by one dog. She will forever be in our hearts and we will never forget the joy and love she brought into our lives. I only hope that she felt we brought as much to her life as she contributed to ours. We love you Amber. xoxo- your family

      Aw, I’m really sorry for your loss. I completely understand that dogs are so much more than pets, they easily become another member of your family. This post definitely brought tears to my eyes.ReplyCancel
