Ramie Ruth

Today - I stray from blogging about the homestead.  I know you'll understand.

Photo of Ramie in Virginia 1999

I am no good at good-byes.  Never have been. 
Even as a kid.

She was adopted from a shelter when we lived in Virginia and had been my pal ever since.  She was definitely my girl.  Funny how they work their way into your heart.  Today's been hard, but I know she is in a better place now.

So long my little southern girl.
I'll miss you..

So sorry for your loss. I have worked the past 2 days and just now catching up. I would give anything to have back the pets we have lost. Hope you find some comfort in knowing you gave her a wonderful life. Hugs.

I'm so sorry you lost your little girl. I know how hard that is. I know she's on rainbow bridge playing and having a great time. She'll be watching over you and waiting until you meet again. Many hugs to you. -Jackie

Sending sweet thoughts your way. It is funny how we become so attached to our pets. They become a family member just like the people.
