I feel like I owe you an explanation.....

  I have never shared anything personal on my blog but I felt you deserve an explanation for where I've been so here it goes. Unfortunately, I was in the hospital for a little while as I suffer from depression and was unable to function. This has been my 2nd hospitalization in the last 2 years and I am still having a hard time dealing. You see I had a wonderful Golden Retriever named Precious who was by my side for 11 years until she was sadly diagnosed with a brain tumor. We knew that one day she would pass away from what is called "cluster seizures" but I was not prepared at all. That horrible day came and I held my beautiful Precious in my arms while she suffered through 18 heart breaking seizures that just wouldn't stop. We finally made it to the hospital and was able to end her suffering by the 19th seizure. That was the worst day of my life. I had to make the decision to let her go in order to end her pain. She died the day before her 11th birthday. My best friend in the world, my beautiful angel was now gone. It has been almost 2 years since her death and I still struggle with the depression and sadness it left behind. Here are some pictures of my little angel and best friend. May she now be happy and healthy in heaven.

While I still miss my little angel dearly through the advice of a friend we decided to honor Precious by adopting a new puppy, Princess Abby. We got Princess Abby on December 4, 2010 at 8 weeks old weighing in at a little over 2 pounds. Princess Abby is a Shichon (Shi-Tzu Bichon mix) and has beautiful green eyes. She has been wonderful in cheering me up and giving me a purpose again. Unfortunately, it has been hard to raise her as it is with all puppies. I have had a difficult time finding the time and energy to keep up with my blog and her at the same time. I hope that as she grows older I will begin to have more and more time to post to my blog as it is one of my joys in life. Princess Abby is now 3 months old and weighs a whopping 5 pounds! She will only grow to about 10 pounds which is what I needed just in case I would one day need to pick her up and rush her to the vet as I could not do alone with my beloved Precious. Princess Abby is very smart and has already learned how to sit, sit pretty, shake and lay down. Here are some pictures of our little Princess.

Thank you for allowing me to tell you my story and thank you for being patient with me. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
