Today, my sweet beautiful boy earned his wings and went to doggy heaven.
It has been one of the toughest days of my life having to say goodbye to my best friend. I've been a total wreck all day and to say that my heart is broken would be an understatement.
Ranger was one of the sweetest pups, you couldn't help but smile once you saw him. He brought so much laughter and love into our lives that he became my furry ray of sunshine during my darkest days. Always by my side. Always wagging his tail and smiling. Always howling to tell us stories about his day, how Athena got into the trash again, how much he missed us, or how much he does not enjoy baths. He always had something to say and even taught Adalynn how to howl.
As painful as this is, I'm at peace knowing
that you are no longer in pain. That you are no longer suffering. As I held your thinned out body crying this morning feeling you take a very slow breath after another, I knew you were fighting all this time to stay alive for me, for us.
Even though we are no longer physically together anymore, you will forever remain in my heart and soul. You were a blessing sent from above and the greatest gift a girl could have ever received. Thank you for all the important life lessons you taught me, preparing me for parenthood, and most of all, thank you for teaching me how to love unconditionally. I will carry you with me everywhere I go until we meet again. I love you so much, my furry guardian angel.
