Rest In Peace my sweet Velcro

For 13.5 years I've always had a shadow. Velcro followed me wherever I went, hence her name. I just woke up to go to the bathroom and didn't hear her follow me... my shadow is gone. My soft sided piece of Velcro is gone. My ❤️ dog.  She saved me after I saved her. She will always have a special place in my heart.

It was so hard watching her age. She had been such a vibrant dog- going everywhere with me, running miles upon miles on trails and roads with me.

The past few months I didn't take her in the car as much- she didn't want to go anywhere. She enjoyed her couch and her kitties. But I'm so glad I was able to take her and her siblings to Jalama Beach one last time. She loved that beach! And this past trip she chased seagulls like she was a puppy.

I'm so sorry I wasn't here for you when you needed me most. I raced home as quickly as I could and was here to help you over the bridge. I hope you know how much I love and will always love you!! My heart hurts! My Velcro dog is gone! I hope you weren't in any pain those two days I wasn't here before you passed.

I'm so glad you had Grandpa with you and Griffin. It brings me comfort knowing that you were surrounded by love even though I wasn't here.

You will always be my girl.

Rest In Peace my beautiful red girl!!
