Holy Night Stocking #23 and Goodbye Clarence...

I didn't get as much as I could have done on the Holy Night Stocking this long weekend as we had a terrible time on Saturday - we had to put our beautiful Clarence to sleep forever. He was struggling to walk & had a number of other issues. He had lost the quality of life he had enjoyed for so long, so it was time. Knowing it was the right thing to do for him, doesn't make it any easier though.


We will miss him very much but take comfort knowing he isn't suffering any more. He brought us so much joy.


Clarence
2001 - 2017
15.5 years of age (9.5 years with us)

After that, it was a little difficult to concentrate on anything else, but eventually I got going with the stocking and am very happy with the progress I made.


Happy Stitching,
Kerrie

  2. I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I know from my own experience the pain,emptiness,and the numb state that comes from loosing not only a pet,a friend, a member of the family. Find things that bring joy,comfort,and peace. Hold onto the love you share with your pet,hold on to all your loved ones,they'll help. Again I'm sorry .
