Hello, it's been awhile since I wrote but we're still here.

 I've been trying to form the words, and although three weeks have passed, words still won't connect or make any sense of our loss.
As this blog is a real account of our life here on our little patch, I can't choose to omit an event that has knocked us over, to the point that we still can't discuss it with each other. 
Time will help us to process this part of our journey, but the loss leaves a big empty gap in our lives.

January 2018 - September 12th 2018

She gave us some challenging moments, but the joy we received from her funny antics will be treasured always.
Ever keen to please, always loyal and loving to her humans, and clever beyond words. 

What happened?
She was the master of escape, and although we had made every effort to prevent her from jumping over or digging under fences, she made her way onto the road and was hit by a passing car.
It all happened so fast and the end was quick.

Soda, you were a special girl, a darling companion to us all. May you run and play and chase bunnies forever. 

The pain passes but the memory remains. Each dog leaves a paw print on our heart.

Thanks for reading and visiting my blog today; it was a difficult one to write. 
Give your loved ones, especially your dogs, an extra cuddle today in memory of all those dogs who are taken before their time is up. 
R.I.P. Soda 



  1. Sally, I am so sorry to hear about Soda. I have always been heartbroken when we have lost our precious dogs so I can understand how you feel. Big hugs!

  2. Sally I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful Soda. Puppies are a part of the family and the grief felt when they are gone is heart breaking. Thinking of you.

  3. Sorry to hear about Soda, they sure do leave paw prints on our hearts, we lost our Ned recently, I understand.

  4. I'm so sorry Sally to hear about Soda...I feel your pain too. Our furry friends become very much part of the family and their loss is heartbreaking. Big hugs to you!

  6. Gosh Sally, No sage or wise words from me. Just know that we are sending all our love to you.

  7. Dear Sally,

    So sorry to hear your sad news about Soda. Pets really do become part of our family and they leave a big hole when they are gone. Grieving for your dear friend is completely understandable.

    Sending much love and many hugs,

  8. Oh, Sally! So sad to read that you have lost your Soda. They really are heartbeats at our feet and we miss their presence and companionship ever so much when they are gone. Be extra kind to yourselves while you get used to things without her. Much love to you both. Meg Xx

  9. Oh Sally, I was so saddened by your news. Thinking of you and Brian at this difficult time.

  10. Much love Sally. Dogs bring so much joy and love into our lives, even in a short space of time.

    She was so lucky to have you as her owner.


  11. My hope was your absence, came down to the spring rush. I'm sure that is still upon you, at such a time of loss. May there be reminders popping up all around you, that life continues to delight and surprise. I like to plant fruit trees on our deceased pets, to remind me every year, that life returns, even if they don't. We will always remember them, and that's a treasure. :)

  12. I’m so sad for you. It’s so hard to loose a beloved pet. Thinking of you.

  13. Sorry to hear about Soda. Thoughts are with you. Take care Sally x

  14. Sorry to learn about Soda. Hugs to you and Brian.

  15. Sally, I am so sorry for your loss!
