isn't that the saying? all good things must come to an end? do bad things HAVE to come to an end too (I hope!)? I have had many things come to an end in the last few years. Some things I've struggled and suffered to say goodbye to. other things were a sad relief. I won't go into it all but its been a rough road. now, a new loss is around the corner. i cant say i didn't see it coming but i am blind-sided nonetheless. our beautiful, sweet dog Maddie (aka The Moo) will be leaving us soon. she has been a huge part of the family for 11 years. how do you prepare to say goodbye? how do you know when its time? i can't imagine life without the moo under foot, snoring or begging for food. i cant imagine life without that beautiful face with the big brown cow eyes.
