Phyllis was a light in the darkness for me when we lost our pug Rose in a very violent way. She has been my constant companion for the past 5 and a half years. She had health problems this past year, but I would never have guessed she would be gone this soon. Too soon. It is always too soon.
I started to go through all of my photos then realized I have hundreds of her. Hundreds of happy memories that I am going to cling to, so I can hopefully forget the last, sad morning.
Here is just a small selection of some of my favorites.
The first photo I took of her. She didn't know yet that she was safe and loved.
With her sister, Priscilla.
I have been keeping Priscilla close. She is stressed without her friend.
I can't believe it. I am having a hard time right now, afraid to sleep because I am afraid I'll wake up and Priscilla will be gone. I know that it will get better, but now I am grieving for this little soul. This is our last photo together. I held her from the moment we found her until we left her at the vet. My sweet Phyllis. You are so so missed and so so loved.
