I only just commented on the previous post and then saw this one. I am so sorry for your loss, poor dear little Mabel.
At least it was quick and she was with you all. You know she didn't suffer and wasn't alone.
We've all lost fur-babies at one point in our lives and know how hard it is. (((hugs))) to you, Murphy and Henry too.

sally ann said...

Hello Vickie
This is my first visit to your blog. I saw your photo of Mabel in the log list and I just wanted to say how sorry I am about Mabel. She looked like such a beautiful little dog. x

woolwoman said...

I couldn't be more sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend Mabel - she was a doll. I told you about my fascination with poodles. My great aunt had a chocolate poodle - a mini named Coco and he was such a friend to me when I was little. He entertained me for hours when my grandmother and her sisters got together which was often. I think poodles are just so elegant - I am especially partial to standards. I hope you are soon able to remember just the good times and not the sad times and that your friends who care will give you comfort and your stitching of course - Mel
