It really has meant such a lot to us to feel the warmth and support from so many. We can't actually put into words or describe how it has felt.
The last 48 hrs has been so very hard to handle and we are still very raw. It never gets any easier saying goodbye to a much loved family member. No matter how many times you experience it. Our dogs always let us down,they never live long enough.
Aunty Ellie (as she was known by the other thuglets) was a ^very special girl "with the most lovely nature and personality. She always made us smile......
Whilst there are 5 thuglets in the kitchen......... Ellie is missing!
Ellie had her own corner in the kitchen with her bed, the other thuglets, always respected her corner and bed. They are taking it in turns at the moment spending time there which is lovely as we hate to see the corner empty. We did try moving things around yesterday - but we all hated the new look. The thuglets looked at us as if to say "NO WAY"... so back the bed went.
Went shopping and found ourselves standing infront of the macaroni cheese and creamed rice pudding thinking must get some for Ellie. Last romp in the darkness before bed we always count the thuglets in 1 - 6. Yes we got to 5 and thought where are you Ellie? Then you remember!
We know in time the hurt will start to lift and we will remember the goodtimes, we are so fortunate we have many to look back on.
The Thuglets are getting lots of extra TLC and bonios at the moment.
Thank you again to you all of you
