Raising Litter Mates



It is with an aching heart that I write this entry. Jordan took a turn for the worse last night, and this morning we had to let her go. She waited for her grandma (my mom)and had a great visit before letting us know that it was her time to leave us and join her brother's in puppy heaven.

Rest in Peace Jordan.

I didn't think we would lose her so quickly. She seemed to be doing well, up until last night. Her breaths were shallow, her eyes were sunken and I knew this was the last night with her. The spring in her step was gone, and all she wanted was to be cuddled and pet. That is exactly what we gave her.

I laid beside her all night.. I watched her sleep, and get up, and sleep and get up - she was starting to look uncomfortable by the time 8:00am rolled around. We took her in right away, and knew that it was time to let her go.

I don't think it's hit me yet. I'm at a loss of words. I just want to thank those of you who had emailed me ideas and advice on her condition. And for all of those who came to see her when she was ill.

Jordan was full of love - all the time. She loved to swim, and play in the snow. She loved to be close to me, her and I have spent a lot of time together the last four months - she was my little sidekick. I wrote about her story on some previous blogs, so I won't get into all that here, but trust me when I say that she was meant to be with me. We've been through some rough times.

She passed away in my arms, surrounded by her grandma (my mom) and her daddy (Stephen) drenched in tears. May she rest in peace. We love you Jordan, you will be missed greatly.
