I took this picture on Monday January 12th...Lusy had a stroke and was doing poorly. We all gave her extra love and attention.
Tuesday January 13th, our sweet Lusy died in our home, with the 4 of us surrounding her as she slowly stopped breathing, we felt her heart beating for quite a few minutes after...then it stopped. Rob wrapped her up in a white bedsheet and we buried her in the backyard. Digging a grave for her was no easy task. Rob had to make a fire to soften the frozen earth. It's been a hard week. We miss her every time we open the door, she would greet us with wagging tail...
Listening to Uncle Rob play the mandolin.
Monday, we celebrated Theophany in church and brought home blessed water.
I ♥ that we have so many kids in our parish.
Thankfully, my sister and her family were here last week to keep us all cheerful, during this sad time with our dog, Lusy. Olivia wanted to make cookies, and Liza helped.
