This weekend a horrible thing happened. We lost our two year old pug, Mabel. She went into the backyard to play with our other dog and when we went to bring her in about 20-30 minutes later we found her semi-catatonic in the backyard. We rushed her to the emergency animal hospital right away. They worked on her for almost two hours. They stabilized her twice but the third time she coded they could not revive her. The vet believes someone threw something poison over our fence. Heaven help them if I ever find out that is true and find who did it. Anyone that would randomly do that to an innocent and sweet animal like Mabel deserves the worst punishment. Mabel was the sweetest dog I have have ever known. She was my loyal companion, my best friend, and she was my little girl. She was one of the great loves of my life and I would give everything I own to just have her wake me up one more time with her rapid fire pug kisses like she did every morning. I would give anything to just have her nip at my heels or roll over in my lap to have her belly rubbed. For the first time ever, there is no emoticon that cries hard enough to express how I feel. Goodbye Mabel. I miss you every minute of the day and I always will. My heart will always be missing a piece from this day forward.
