Sad News.. (about our dog Miles)
Moms.. especially ones who have come to know me and my family on here.. I have sad news to share.. Miles, who we loved and adored for 10+ awesome years.. went to heaven today.. as some of you know, he went back to stay with my in laws since Monroe was born.. but it definitely doesn't make it any easier.. he was so loved and he was with us through so so much of our lives.. my husband got him for me when I was in college.. my sophomore year, he was the tiniest puppy I had ever laid eyes on.. in fact, we kept a collar with a bell on him because he was so little :) He was ornery and feisty to say the least.. he didn't love other dogs, kids or strangers by any means.. but he loved us with his whole little heart.. he was with us when we got engaged, saw us get married, and saw us wait for the arrival of Monroe.. he went on many trips.. was the best car rider we could have asked for.. and as feisty as he was, he was always the sweetest soul at the vet's office.. he loved going on walks.. if you said or even spelled w a l k.. he would go nuts.. and you guys, he was only 8 lbs :) but he would walk and walk with those little legs.. he also loved sunny days.. if there was a sun spot in the house, that's where you would find him.. before he left to live with my in laws, it's like he knew things were changing but was still so sweet.. he would curl up on some of Monroe's blankets, and lay with me in the baby's room while I put things away.. he definitely wasn't perfect, we always wished he could be around people or dog's better.. and sometimes I feel like that was my fault.. but we tried everything.. anyways.. I am starting to ramble.. I will miss him, so much, I already did and the fact that I now know he is gone makes me very sad.. it's like a big chapter of my life is closing now that he is gone.. rest in peace sweet little man, you will always have such a special place in my heart.
