A Dog and A Broken Heart

Dear Journal,

Tuesday morning something called an ambulance came for my Pappy.  He spent the night lying on his kitchen floor in pain, trying to avoid the inevitable and trying to hold onto me as long as he could.  I tried to get a piece of the men that came and took my Pappy away, but someone held me back.   I listened intently as the siren faded into the distance and then I hid in the closet.  Now, I sleep in Pappy's chair. 

Pap was always by my side and never went anywhere without me.  Why did Pap have to go?  But then again,  I know why. 

I'm so glad I was able to get his Christmas present to him before he left. 

Koda.

PS  I sure wish my cousin Gracie and I could get along.  I could be a part of her family.  But she is a B*%@* of a dog ....  if ya know what I mean. 

yup.  that's my Christmas present to Pap.  A 20 X 14 Canvas

And my letter to my pap for Christmas:


NOTE:  my brother Jimmy is not gone yet, he is still in the hospital.  It is likely that he will not come home.  Thank you for your prayers!!!!  Bobbi

Oh, Koda I am so terribly sorry for your loss. What is going to happen to you? I have been thinking about you and worrying too. I thought maybe you could go to live with Gracie or one of her family.

Bobbi, I am so terribly sorry to hear this. So sad. I will be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. Sending hugs. ~ Inger

Koda, your Christmas letter to Pap is even more beautiful than your photo, and that's saying a lot. My handsome Woody is sending love and prayers; we're so glad you know that Pap has gone ahead to prepare your mansion.

Bobbi, I'm crying with you as I write this while praying that you feel God's peace and comfort surround you. Blessings to you all.

Oh Bobbi,I am sad to read this. What a sweet picture of Koda and a letter he wrote for your brother. I hope your brother does have that picture of Koda at the hospital to remember the loving times the two of them had together.

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. His fate is in God's hands now and remember, miracles do happen sometimes.

You and Jimmy will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh gosh, that gave me a scare. What are the plans for Koda? I am so sorry. I know how hard this must weigh on your heart. My prayers are with you both, Bobbi.

Anyway you can keep Koda? Gracie will eventually get over it, maybe get over black dog syndrome too. (Or is Koda the maker of black dog syndrome?)

I wish I could come to comfort you, I know how hard it is.

Hugs and peace,

Sharon
