Thankful Thursday - Duke

I am so very Thankful for the time we got to spend with our sweet precious Aussie, Duke who died suddenly yesterday. I am super Thankful for the photos I took the day before he was hit by the car, they will forever be cherished! We miss you so much Bubs, you were such a good boy! One thing I forgot to mention yesterday about our boy is that he could also carry a balloon without popping it, I taught him to hold the knotted end in his mouth. He could also give high fives and wave. Ohhh Duke, how we miss you!

I want to add that I am also so Thankful for my wonderful friend Angie, she was there in a heartbeat yesterday when I called and told her what happened. Thanks for watching Jimmy for that short time, it gave me a chance to reflect on Duke by myself for a little while as I drove to the vet. Love you!!

And thanks for everyone's very kind and sweet, comforting comments. I am so blessed that you take the time to share these experiences with me.

This is Duke as a puppy, he was sooo cute and just a sweet little furball! This image was on my old geocities website, I am so thankful I found it!


Here are a couple more pics I found from when he was a puppy.

Oh my gosh! How heart breaking. We lost our most favorite ever cat 2 weeks ago. I feel your pain, it is such and ache those animals leave when they have to go. You have so many lovely pictures that will for a while maybe hurt to look at but later they will bring so much happiness and memories. Take care honey! I am so sorry this happened to your family!
