Our sweet Hallie passed away unexpectedly Monday morning...my heart feels so heavy as I write this. She was a monumental part of my life for the past 13 years and shortly after it happened, all I could think about was how unfair it was and how having her all these years was not worth the amount of sheer pain in the end. But then I realized I would have never experienced the amount of unconditional love that only a dog like her could give. I'm going to miss the way she smelled (especially her paws)...how she was the most talented hide-n-seek player in the world and could always find me...how she wouldn't leave my side when she knew I was sad...among other things.
Anyone who knew her knows that she was somewhat of a worrywart. The vet told us she was too smart for her own good (and she was!)...always worrying about us all the time. I am thankful that she no longer has to worry anymore.
Love you Hallie girl.
