Forever in my heart.

October 28, 2009

I'm pretty sure the saying, "a dog is a man's best friend" is the understatement of the century. A dog is not just a mans (or woman's) best friend, a dog is something that proves that love can be, and is unconditional. A dog makes everything better when everything sucks. A dog is the best listener I've ever known. A dog is so much more than what some people perceive. Call me crazy for over-thinking what a dog really is, but tonight I did one of the hardest things I've ever done. I put my dog to sleep, I let her go. After an hour in the room with my dad and brother, 2 slices of cheese (her favorite) later, it was finally time to say goodbye to my best friend. I've had Gracie since I was 9 years old, and now at 22 years old, I had to say goodbye. It sucks, and it hurts my heart, and to say it hasn't effected my family is a lie. Everyone that knew me, knew Gracie, and while I'm positive she's someplace better, somewhere where the cancer can't hurt her anymore, it still sucks. She'll be missed and always loved.
RIP Gracie- I miss you more than you'll ever know.

A vintage Kristen & Gracie.
