Goodbye, Athena


July 30, 2018 by Laird

We laid Athena to rest early this evening in the shade of the big sycamores and pines in our yard. I have done hard things in my life, but nothing as hard as this. Thank you to DG Brown, Jessica M., and Mr. Gaunt for helping send my good girl across the twilight divide.

Never in a million years could I have deserved your devotion. You were a pure light and I will always love you. See you around, pup.

    My condolences Laird, I lost my corgi Corky back in August of 2016, it is definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through, still brings tears to my eyes sometimes.

    I don’t think ever really get over the loss of a loved one.

  3. Sorry for your loss, brother. Much love. –p

    Sounds like she had a great life.

    This sucks. I lost my dog, a Welsh springer spaniel, last year. Really cut me up.

    I know this is months too late but I hope Athena rests in peace
