Rest In Peace Sweet Girl

 Today we made a very tough decision. One that I wish we did not have to make at all. But the time had come...
 Rebel has been laid to rest beside her sister Sadie in the Azalea Garden.  She had been a part of our family for 16 years. Born in April and passed in April.
 She even attended Birthday Parties through the years.
 She loved the outdoors. She grew up camping and going everywhere with us as a family.
 She was a very stylish older lady. Loved her sweaters in the winter.
But most of all she loved to sit in the recliner with her daddy. During Nascar Racing season this is where  you would see her when  a race was on.  Believe me.. She did watch the tv.. When I worked, I had to always leave the tv on her cartoon channel when I left to go to work. She always would greet us at the door. I will miss her so much. But I know that she is no longer in pain and she is running around chasing her sister Sadie and they are having a great time!
I thought to myself tonight. The Lord gave us these beautiful animal to love and them to love us.  But, It hurts so much when you lose them. All they ever want is just your LOVE. Nothing else.. That pat on the head, scratch behind the ears, belly rubbed or just you to sit and hold them. You can always count on seeing pure love in their eyes. I seen it today with Rebel.. Pure Love.

It is the hardest decision we have to make when it comes to our ailing animal siblings. I still miss my "baby" who's been gone now 4 years. Prayers for ease of mind and ease of heart. She is with her sister, and they are causing a wonderfully happy commotion where ever they roam.

I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Rebel. Try to take comfort in your wonderful memories. I know all too well of making this impossible decision. Our beloved cocker passed away 2 1/2 years ago at age 15 1/2. I have a hole in my heart and miss him every day.
