Noodles’ Legacy

Hi Blog world,

This is going to be a hard post to write; as many of you know I have been quiet for a while. That’s because I’ve been sad. On March 11, I had to put Noodles to sleep.  In late November, of last year, she started having seizures. The vet and I tried different medicines to help get the seizures to stop, however, she was not getting any better. On March 10th, she had another seizure, and I knew it was time to let her go. It was heartbreaking to let her go, but I knew it was for the best.

When I first got Noodles, sixteen years ago, my mom and I signed a puppy contract, one part of that contract was letting my beloved Noodles go when the time came. At the time,  I did not understand what “letting her go” meant but as I grew older and I understood that death was a part of life’s journey I knew that was part of the commitment to our friendship. I promised that I would not let her suffer. I cried the day I made the call knowing that once we arrived at the vet’s office that this would be our last visit together. I stayed with her until the end. I filled my part of the contract and Noodles fulfilled hers. She leaves behind so many great memories of our time together, of licks on the face, of silly tricks, and of going on life’s journey with me. From teaching me how to read better, I read out-loud to her many times as a young child, to helping me improve my writing, I used to write about her from my typewriter then as I grew older a computer, she helped me grow as a person. She taught me responsibility. She’s been through some of the happiest and saddest times of my life. I can’t thank her enough for being there for me. She leaves behind a great and lasting legacy.

Our last day together was very peaceful. We went outside, had a great photo shoot, I read, sang to her, and we cuddled and talked.

Here are some photos from our photo shoot. Photos taken by: Mrs. Karen
