|07/10/04 Today I had to put my dog "Brandy" to sleep. She has blessed and enriched our lives for 9 years almost to the day. Her passing saddened my children but I know they will bounce back from this. Their relationship with her was more indirect and playful in nature. Brandy's passing has had a more direct and devastating affect on my wife and I. Brandy was always at our side,everyday in every way. My wife and I have grown up with dogs in our lives but none has made an impact like this special animal. She was always the topic of conversation in our home and everywhere we went. She was truly a member of our family,and in the 9 years she blessed our lives,she was a source of pride equal only to our children. She left a lasting impression on everyone she was introduced to. It was not because she was a "Rotweiler",it was because of her gentle loving nature,intelligence and her faithfulness to family and all our friends. I was with her when she went to sleep and I will never forget what I had to do.My heart truly aches and the emptiness will never go away.I will learn to live with it.I will not forgive myself for what I had to do. I will never forget her in my arms, looking in her eyes and assuring her I would never leave her. I just kept saying that I am sorry. In our lives,there aren't many people,occasions and events that impact us in a major way. This gentle animal has impacted my wife and I in a way we will not ever recover from. Thank you "Bran" for the 9 years you graced our lives. You will be in our thoughts everyday until we meet again!07/12/04 Today I made arrangements for your cremation this was a difficult thing to do.Soon you will be home again and in our bedroom where you always slept.Mommy loves and misses you with every inch of my heart.
