Today was one of the hardest days of our life and our relationship. We had to make a the tough decision to allow Riley to cross over to be with her angels. When I saw her for the last time, my entire heart shattered, because she was happy to see me and before she could crawl to me, I brought her to my heart and apologized for not being able to keep her with me. But her little body just couldn’t fight anymore and I couldn’t ask her to stay in a painful shell.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who sent me their good cheer, prayers, and happy vibes for all of us. I will never forget the outpouring of love. I’m holding on to it now as I bounce back and forth between the logic of Riley no longer being in pain to the reality of my broken heart.
Riley has inspired me to start a site with all the facts about Parvo, because I drove myself nuts trying to understand what was going on and found loads of misinformation. It won’t be a site to diagnose; but I’m hoping that it will give other fur parents hope through a very stressful and emotionally exhausting ordeal.
Farewell to my sweet sweet girl. I love you and I’ll miss you.
I’ll be taking a break from blogging while we mourn our loss. I won’t be away long.
