23 Jan Angel
Angel came to me in the worst of circumstances, but that was the luckiest day of my life. Angel quickly inserted herself into the my life and learned how to be a puppy thanks to her big sister Arenya. She quickly showed her strength and determination to enjoy every ounce of life. We lived most on the West Coast of Vancouver Island and her happiest days were spent chasing birds along the miles of coastline, or playing in the ocean waves. She would swim for hours, and was a expert at jumping off the rocks to catch a stick mid-air, before cannonballing into the Pacific.
When CPTSD became an overwhelming part of my life, Angel was there…always, to help me control my symptoms. This little dog always knew how to make everyone smile and laugh. Every morning she would pop up the side of my bed to say “Morning momma…let’s go!”. That’s going to be one of the things I miss the most…and the cuddles. She owned half of my heart, and it’s broken. Angel suffered from mast cell tumor throughout her entire body, and Oriole Road Animal Clinic alway provided us with the absolutely best and most compassionate care possible. I will always be grateful to everyone who works there, especially Andrew, Fiona, Kim and Denise.
Angel-baby…thank you so much for everything you brought to my life. I will love you forever and will never forget the lessons you taught me. You’re with Nan now…so take her to the beach and both of you play until momma can be with you again. You were brave, loving, and the most special little love anyone could ever ask for. Momma loves you always baby. No more pain little one…just freedom.
