Our Little Louise

I know it has been forever since I have blogged. I can honestly say this has been the longest break ever. There was a lot of stressful situations going on. I had a couple injuries from walking/running. I am healed pretty much so I am back to it.
We had a terrible thing happen early this Sunday morning. Saturday evening, Louise, our 15 year chihuahua was snuggling with me and I went to pick her up to take her outside and she would not move, she was just had a blank stare on her face. After about an hour or so she began howling every now and then and having seizures. We had decided to take her to the emergency vet many times but it seems every time we did we thought she was passing. I stayed up with her and a little after five Sunday morning she passed. As you remember we lost her sister Thelma, a year and a half ago to an owl in the back yard. They are together now but it has been very difficult for us.  I cannot function really. Every sound I hear in the house I think it's her, every time I go to do something I think I need to get Louise (she liked to be with me at all times and she could not climb stairs so I carried her mostly). I have had a real difficult time being in the house by myself. I spend most of the time looking on the computer for rescue Chihuahuas keeping my mind off of her, I go for walks, and even go to my husbands work and bother him. Luckily, I can just sit in his office and straighten things up for him.

I had been sewing a lot, selling on a wholesale site. I still have many orders I need to complete. I promised myself this week to mourn the loss of Louise and then I have to get busy. Louise had so many favorite cuddle spots in my studio it is hard to be and there.

I will get busy and start posting some things to show you what I have been working on. Thanks for standing by me during these crazy times. It seems I also need to have a giveaway since I missed my blogaversary, so keep posted.

Enjoy your day and don't forget to find a little stitching time!

I'm so sorry,it's very difficult losing a pet. I know what you mean about not wanting to be in the house alone I went through that when our dog died last year. We did get a new (rescue ) dog in February, she's so needy that it really did make me feel better, but I still miss our old dog.

My prayers are with you. I know the feeling of losing a beloved companion --- it's going on 4 years for me and I still miss my buddy.

God will steer you to the right new best friend. . . .there's another buddy that will need you as much as you need them.

I'm so sorry Jennifer. I'm glad she got to live a long happy life but I know it's not easy... :( We just lost our old cat a couple weeks ago too and it's still a sad thing--they sure do leave pawprints in your heart! *hugs*

I'm so sorry. She was so sweet. It is very hard when you lose a pet because they are so dear to us. I'm glad to see you back blogging again. I wondered where you were.
