Goodbye to my Lena

Well, it was that time, the time I know we all dread, time to let my Lena go. My heart is broken and I miss her so. My stepdaughter made a little goodbye poem for her below and I made an angel vial with a lock of her in it to keep her near me. I also added a stick, three pink hearts, her name and some glitter along with a large set of angel wings on the back. I keep it in my car because she was always with me no matter where I went, Lena was always with me -- and in my heart she still is and always will be.


Her paw prints are still visible, and her little black hairs are too, her leash may still be on the table, as well as treats all brand new, the rug might be a little sloppy or a bit out of place, because thats the way she liked it, somewhere comfy to lay her face, and the door is left cracked, a little bit for her to get through, so Lena can come in the middle of the nite, and lay right next to you, her water bowl is still full, and her yellow ball is still here, now that Lena is no longer with us, doesn't mean her soul isn't near, the past years with her has been a lot of fun, she had a great life, and now her work here is done, happy to see her make it to age eleven, we will never forget you Lena, enjoy your new home in doggy heaven.

I'm so sorry to hear that Lena had to cross the bridge. I know how hard it is but the pain will never erase the good memories of her. She will be in your heart forever. My thoughts are with you today.
