Behind Tears - Sugar

Today has been a very hard day - watching my dear four legged furry friend Sugar slipping away. It started around 10 pm last night and I have been in the barn with his head in my lap almost every minute since. Only leaving my sweet one for the needs of the other animals during this horrid heat today.

We all knew this time was coming but it is never easy. If you could please send out a prayer for this sweet soul - He has graced this farm for 15 years now and this year he reached to great age of 21 years young. Sugar has been a fixture in my life for so long that I realize he will be taking a big part of my heart with him. The great and hard part about taking such good care of animals is that we think they will be with us forever - in the last two years my old ones are finding their way to another place and plane while I sit here missing them with all my heart... Still I remember the GREAT times, trying times and even the sad times with great love and gratitude.

It won't be long now but it will come too soon for me...

I'm so sorry for your loss. I too am going through this time with my beloved dogs. Thankfully our goats and sheep are still much younger. Many blessings- Sue

I am so very sorry Grace. Just know there has never been a goat loved more. Proof of your love is that he was able to get to 21. You do a very special thing for those animals and I know that they love you back for it. My prayers are with you.

So sorry. Such a sweet animal and you've been so wonderful for him (and he for you). My thoughts are with you during this tough time. :(
