It is with a very heavy heart that I create this post…Our beautiful Golden Retriever, Missy, who we’ve had for the past 5 years has passed away from cancer. It came on very fast and was very aggressive. We are completely devastated and our hearts are completely broken. She was the sweetest, most gentle soul I’ve ever known. She was my Egyptian Princess (a rescue from Egypt) and I called her my “Missy Doodles†and my “Princessâ€. We held her in our arms as she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. We are crying for you here on earth, my beautiful girl…but know that we will see each other again on the other side. I love you with all my heart and soul and I miss you more than words can describe. Rest in Peace my Angel.

I can’t believe that I am writing about the loss of our precious girl. From the day we met her…she was deeply locked in our hearts. We never did actually know how old she was. Different vets told us between 3 and 5 when we got her. But as she got older and slowed down a bit…we knew the day would come. We just never expected it to arrive so quickly. One day she’s sniffing every plant and stone while on our walks…and the next day we find out she’s got cancer covering her lungs and it’s untreatable. Making that decision is never easy, but this time it really hit home. Michelle adored that pup, as did I, and it was so hard to say goodbye. We had all our neighbors over for one last hug. You see, she was the darling of the neighborhood. More people knew her name than ours…and they were all so sad to hear about her situation. She was truly loved. As I type this, I’m crying again. She was truly our Egyptian Princess and will always be missed. No matter what…no other dog will replace you in our hearts. Lay in the sun Missy. When you’re on your walk in Heaven, stop at God’s garage and when you see Him, do the “bunny rabbit.†I’m sure He’ll have a treat in His pocket.
