RIP Casey Baby



Yesterday I had to put Casey to sleep. This was one of the hardest things that I've ever had to do. She lived a good long life, she was 20 and I know that I was fortunate to have had her in my life for so long. I know it was the right thing to do, her quality of life has not been good for the past few months, but that did not make it any easier. We buried her at the lake, she always loved being there. Here are some layouts of her, the springtime one that I made for her was at the lake and the photo was taken where we buried her.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this! We had to put our dog Gypsy down a couple of years ago and it was the hardest thing I've had to do because she was just such a special dog to me. Beautiful layouts though...love the stitched flowers.
