In Memory

Laura and I had a really nice time at SAFF. Our favorite part was meeting the people who enjoy stitching with Unique Sheep yarn. Well, at least that was my favorite part. Laura's favorite may be the acquisition of Honeybun. :)

Unfortunately upon arriving home I found out that we had lost our little Min Pin to kidney failure on Friday. We had no idea he was that sick, as he had been mostly normal up to a week and a half ago when he got a bout of diarrhea that would not go away. We never considered kidney problems as he has been on organic dog food most of his life.

DH and I are devastated over losing our little guy. We are the type of people who consider our dogs to be part of our family. They travel with us, are allowed on the furniture, and even sleep with us. Spike was 13 yrs old so was an integral part of our lives.

So it may take a little extra time to ship some of your orders. I am trying to get back to work, but do need a bit of time to grieve over the loss.

In Memory of Spike (AKA: Peeky)

Rest in peace my little guy......

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Having lost one of our babies about a month ago, I know the searing grief that haunts you. You're right - they are family - and when one of them passes on, it leaves a hole in your heart. I hold soft thoughts for you in my heart.

Hi Kelly - I am so sorry for your loss. Pets really are like family and they leave a gaping hole when they go. Hugs
