This is my update of CEF with the new stand. The new stand that I just disassembled and hope to remember how to assemble it. I am sure that I will be fine...the first time is always tricky. I will not be working on CEF while gone. I have her packed away safely. The main reason is that I cannot always control the dirt factor and since she is done with overdyeds...she cannot be washed. I have some small projects kitted up along with my STO April Ornament for the SAL.
Mom emailed me today to let me know that she had to put our dog to sleep. :( I knew that the time was coming, and I really tried to prepare myself to never see her again when we left in May 2005. But I never imagined how I would feel knowing that she was truly gone. I cried and cried tonight. I sent my Mom the Rainbow Bridge poem. Little Red was a very obedient, caring and loyal dog. She didn't always have the most stable life but she was loved. I remember when Mom got her...she was supposed to be a Christmas present for me. Nevermind that Mom lived in a different state than I did and didn't clear it with my Grandparents (with whom I lived). Little Red was so small she could fit in one of my hands. Then she got Parvo. Mom spent a fortune making her well for me. I told DH tonight that I was going to have to have a cheeseburger happy meal minus the pickles in Red's memory. She would always spit out the pickles if we forgot to have them hold them. This picture is from Christmas 2004 when we went home on a suprise visit.
RIP Little Red Dog 11/93 to 3/21/06
The best dog friend a girl could wish for. You will be missed.
