For the Love of Zoe

Today has been one of those days.  Tough.  Sometimes life is like that.  Tough.  And I’m reminded that God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.

For any of you pet lovers out there, you know pets are more than just things.  They are family.  Our Great Dane, Zoe, has been in hospice care with us for the past six months.  This morning she passed away peacefully surrounded by all of us who loved her dearly.

She became paralyzed in March and was diagnosed with cancer.  The veterinarians didn’t think she’d make it to summer, but typical Zoe she was a fighter and wasn’t going to have any of that.  So she continued with her bright spirit and keeping her brothers and sisters in line all through the summer.  She was such a good girl, and we were so blessed to be able to spend this summer with her.

I saw a saying on Pinterest that says, “Love the people God gave you because He will need them back one day.”  I definitely believe this applies to your animal family too.  So, for all of you remember to hug and say “I love you” to those that you love today.

Zoe (Oct. 15, 2001 – Sept. 26, 2012)
