Please Pray For Our Family Today
Today our dog, Giorgie, died. He was almost 105 years old and we are going to miss him. We have had him for 15 years and the kids have not known life without him. They are absolutely devastated at the loss of our family member.
Giorgie stopped eating and drinking and he began to yelp with pain. We knew it was time. It was so hard to take him in to the vet knowing we would not see him again. Colby stayed with him while they euthanized him. Colby said Giorgie has always been there for him and was there when he came home from the hospital (Giorgie was right there to lick him when we walked in with Colby for the first time) and he was going to be there for Giorgie when he breathed his last breath. He was. We all cried buckets of tears and we are still crying. It is just as hard as I thought it would be. I could not stay in the room. It was just too painful.
So because today has been such a rough day the kids stayed home from school and we are watching old movies of the kids and our beloved Giorgie. In every movie Giorgie is right there. I am so glad we have such great memories to watch. I think it is helping us to grieve in a healthy way as a family.
Pray for us as we go through this process.
