Bittersweet Day

Posted by Angie on January 2, 2014 at 5:40 PM

It is a beautiful day out here at Ginger Goat Farm...a sunny day with white, puffy, cottonball clouds high in the sky and a gentle breeze. It's in the low 80's so, it has been a perfect day to "deep clean" the duck pen (as much as you can deep clean the duck pen) and to take care of some other odds and ends around the farm.



Anyway, while I was out pulling some weeds in the garden I realized that Sheila, one year ago today, died. Sheila was our dog that moved with us out here. She was almost 15 years old and she only lived at Ginger Goat Farm for 7 weeks. I am still pretty emotional about it and that's all I want to write about her and what happened on this day last year.

We have Daisy and Duke and I love them (as they are both napping at my feet while I type), but they're not Sheila and I have to move on (as any dog lover knows and understands).

Unfortunately, I understand. My experience is that the pain never goes away, but it does dull over time and you're able to share the memories with more smiles than tears.

She was a beautiful dog. The picture makes her look foxy or kind of dingo-esque. I'm glad Duke and Daisy are there to keep you company.

I too understand your pain. And it does get better over time. Tecumseh has been gone for 6 years. :(
But on a much happier note, Duke and Daisy are adorable. I love your posts and pics about them (and on Instagram too) !!!
I so much enjoy reading your blog here. Keep up the good posts!!! -lisa :)
