In Loving Memory of Dejeah....

It took me a few days to muster up this post, I finished a tribute layout for her last night.  I miss her, she was like a child, I've had her since she was 5 wks old and she had to be put to sleep last Sunday and the ripe old age of 15.  It was the hardest think ever, I know she was in pain and I know this was the best for her but for my own selfish reasons I didn't want to let her go.  I mean I have had her longer than my son has been alive (he's 11).  I miss her so much and I have thought about her everyday since, I'm sure there are those that are like she's a dog, get over it but to me she was more.  She was a family member, she was a companion.

My husband has teased for a long time that she "puts on" for me.  Some times she would limp for no reason and I would baby her but that was just how it was.  She liked to get to him, she would purposely just look at him instead of getting up, almost like she was pretending to not hear him, even though she was pretty close to being deaf she could hear and she knew what you wanted her to do she just didn't feel like doing it. 

I'm going to miss her kicking her bowl around in her crate as if to say she didn't want any more and she wanted more laying down room, lol.  

I'm going to miss her yapping self when she was playing, the way she would tuck her tail and run laps around the furniture as if I was really going to chase her.

I'm going to miss how she loved to just rest her head of my shoulder while I stroked her back...

I'm going to miss so much about her, but I know she lived a long time, she was well taken care of and I'm sure she's here with me in spirit.

Here the layout I did of one of my most recent favorite picture I have of her...



And here are a few random pictures I had on hand of her....










This was one of the funniest pictures I have of my dogs....

April, I am so sorry for your loss. You created such a beautiful page to remember your friend. My dog is 2 and I already dread the day when I have to say goodbye to him. Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog post & share any projects if you've used my repurposing masking technique!

I'm so sorry for you loss. I have a 12 year old malamute named Ginger who doesn't have a lot longer to go and I am clinging to every day that I get with her. She has cancer and she is unable to walk well and sometimes can't get up without us helping her because of her hip joints. I got her at 5 weeks as well and as a single mom all these years, she helped me raise my boys ya know? she woke me up when my son had seizures at night, she sits on my lap when I cry, she always knows just what I need. I don't know how i'll handle life without her. :( Again I'm so sorry for you.
