A Heartbreaking Loss

I have received many emails in the past few weeks from readers asking about Paris. The truth is I never finished my blog post about Paris because of a personal tragedy at home.

Twinkie, my sweet fur-baby, has passed away. I cannot begin to express my grief in words.


If any of you have followed my blog for more than a minute, you know that I loved and adored my lovely little dog more than just about anything on this earth. Twinkie was my truest friend for 9 years and, when she left, took a piece of my heart that can never be filled. I am doing my very best to patch it but a hole this big will take a long time to heal. She might have been small in size, but my tiny girl and her huge personality were a very big part of my family.

Thank you all for your sensitivity and understanding during this very sad time. I am doing my best to find the strength to walk back into the world of the living… And when I arrive, you’ll be the first to know about it.

    So so sorry for your loss. Dogs add so much to your life. But they leave such a big hole when they go. I’m so sorry

    I met you at Lee’s house (I’m the one with the pet blog). My heart goes out to you during this time, I can empathize with you – I truly can. Sending happy thoughts to you my dear, I am so so sorry

    I am so so sorry for your loss. Twinkie brightened my day whenever I saw her while walking my furbaby Coby (the funny-looking skinny little guy with the long legs and black and white face). I always lingered around your place at the chance I would see her. I hope you and Atticus are managing okay.

Tell me what you think!
