Very sad at our house.....




"Cocoa was a child to me. Cocoa passed away.I love Cocoa. Bet I can't see Cocoa ever again. I miss cocoa. I love Cocoa. I do not like the vet...."

(This is the letter Jay wrote to give to her teacher, because she says she can't tell her teacher about Cocoa without crying......)
I am sad. Our dog Cocoa went in for routine spay surgery. Long story short, she died of complications. I was more attached to her than I thought as I have a headache from crying. She was a good dog, and we will really miss her. Jayden is so sad, but taking it pretty good I guess. We are practicing forgiveness towards the vet. It is also hard for me as she says..."why mom....why did we have to take her to have the surgery to not have babies. I would have looked after the babies mom..." It was my choice to have her spayed. And now I am crying my eyes out.
We will miss you Cocoa Bear........

That is a sad post. I am so sorry, so hard to explain things like that to little ones. I know my kids are at the age where they are starting to ask about death and suffering. Tough to know the right answers.
I am sure you know lots of people around there with puppies, but I know some friends who are looking after a very cute puppy on their farm but don't thing they can keep it. She was very adorable.
Blessings my friend even in your sadness,
Tanya

Hi Lawson family:

Just read your post on Coco bear. We're so so sad that you lost little Coco. We love our little dog so much, can't bare the thoughts of losing her so can't imagine how your feelings right now. There is a video on you tube called "Just a dog- Baxter loses a friend" done by cowboy writer & poet Baxter Black about an old dog on his farm. Another is called "God and Dog" by Wendy Fransisco. Both really touching videos on You Tube about pet dogs and how much we love them.

Oh my, I am soooo sorry. I want to give your little girl a great big hug. It is so hard for them to understand and pets are really a special part of your family. Take care!

I am so sorry. These furry creatures have a way of worming their way into our hearts and frankly, most of the time I like them better than other people...and then to watch our chidren grieve their loss, well, that is doubly hard.
