The third goodbye!
Over on the We Shall Not Forget Them page there had been a tribute from Susan Leighton for the loss of her Sophie back in 2014.
Here is Susan’s tribute as a separate blog post that will be linked to as with the others.
A Beautiful Boxer Named Sophie
by Susan Leighton
Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful Boxer named Sophie. My husband fell in love with her at first sight. He had to talk me into taking her home. It didn’t take long for me to see the light. The next thing I know I was carrying her in my arms.
She grew and filled our lives with joy. We loved her Boxer curl and the way that she would sit on the couch with us and just lean against our sides. Then around her 7th year, we noticed that she lost her appetite. Concerned like any parents, we took her to the vet. We received the worst news possible.
She had cancer that had metastasized in her liver. Her last few months with us were precious.
Our darling passed away in the early morning hours on January 31, 2014.
It has been two years but the pain is still there. Every time we see a beautiful Boxer, we see our Sophie in his or her eyes.
They will always be in our hearts!
