Mattie

Mattie (16 years old) has gone to Heaven. January 31, 2015 was our last day with her.



Oldest Daughter  is having a tough time this week.  Mattie was given to her on her 5th birthday.  Mattie had a good long life with us, but cancer took her.

Thinking of you all - what a tough time you are having.

Oh God what a awful week! I am sending my sympathy and love to your daughter. At least she knows that the animals were well loved and that they loved her.

I send you my sympathies. We had to put down a dog and a cat last year. We came home from a camping trip to find that my horse has gone, too. All within 2 weeks. Then the following week my grandma died. Sometimes you think you can't take one more thing, then God has a way of showing you just how strong you really are.

Oh, Kristina, what a hard time you've had with your furry critters. Your daughter probably hardly remembers her life without Mattie. We got our dog, Max, when our daughter was three years old and he passed when she was 17. Hard adjustment for them to make, and us "adults", too. Hugs to you.

God bless you all. This has been a really bad week.

Oh God, my heart just aches. I can't imagine losing two in one week.
Sending prayers for all there, especially their Mama, Oldest Sister.
God bless.

That is just so much sadness to bear. I have felt that this January was the worst ever, and it seems that it was not just the worst for me. Sending hugs to your daughter and to you all.
