100 Days of Happiness (61/100)

100 Days of Happiness (61/100)

Struggling to find some happiness today.  You’ll understand in a moment.


They say “All Dogs Go To Heaven”.   Today – our dear 10-year old chocolate lab Zoey went to heaven.  She was a wonderful dog.  Happy, zany, loving….and eager to be with us – always!    3 days ago — she went lame.  Couldn’t lift her head, couldn’t walk, could barely move.  She was in such pain and fear.   Our vet said it was probably a spinal injury and there was little we could do.

So we did what we were responsible to Zoey to do.  We stayed with her, held her, spoke softly to her — all of our words of love from our family to her — as she slipped from this world to sit at the foot of God.  We will miss you every day Zoey.  Perhaps our only solace today — our only happiness lies in these two things:  for 10 years you filled our lives with JOY and heaven just got more fun because of you.

Goodbye sweet Zo zo, a-go-go.

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
