This morning at 7:15, my beloved Tootsie passed away. She was my joy and the light in my life. I realize that her pain is over now, and that we had nine beautiful years together, but oh Lord, I miss her so.
Last night, Tootsie and I and two of the dwarfs took a ride to the ocean to take photos of the sunset. Oh, but the sun setting down was glorious. The photo in the upper right corner shows Tootsie in her stroller watching the sun disappear behind some far a way trees. I really think that maybe she could see this.
On our way home, we saw some fireworks going off in the sky, and pulled over to try to photograph them. A little ways further up the road, we pulled into a parking lot to enjoy the rest of the show and I took more photos. We did not know where the fireworks were being fired from, but they were high enough up for us to watch them.
I like to think that perhaps the beautiful sunset and the magnificent fireworks were to celebrate my beautiful Tootsie's life. She was such a blessing and a constant joy for me. She was my best friend. I do believe my little girl knew she was leaving. While I held her in my arms, she licked my hand just before her last breath.
I was supposed to be doing the night photos using my tripod, but was not in a situation to do so. Therefore, please excuse any fuzz in the fireworks, as all of last night's photos were hand held. Now I want to light a candle and put it in the window for Tootsie's soul.
Hug your fur babies and love them. Sometimes tomorrow is already here.
Hugs, Edna B.
