Haunted and Heartbroken

So let's just get the bad news
out of the way first, shall we?

A little over a week ago, my husband and I said
a tearful farewell to our first baby together,
Mickey was a huge part of the family for nearly 16 years.
Her heart was stronger than the rest of her old body
in the end, and we had to make the devastating decision
to help her move on.
...sigh...tears.....more tears....
Sometimes the best people in our lives
aren't really people at all.
I miss you Mama.

So I have been a bit sketchy over the past month or so.
Rightly so.

But, I am getting my act back together and am trying to 
channel my pain and sadness in a more creative way.

I give you my submission for the
Love Lies Bleeding challenge
over at HDH this week.

I chose to use this awesome image of Sid and Nancy
(beautifully drawn by Mindy Doodles)
 to represent my version of love gone wrong.
Really wrong.
I also used a Sex Pistols' song title for my sentiment. 
I'm cool like that.

Nancy: If I asked you to kill me, would you?
Sid: I don't know. How would I do it? I couldn't live without ya.

Now that's true love.....

There is still plenty of time to play along with us over at


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about Mickey. It's just a very hard loss that not many can appreciate. 16 years.
    I'm very sorry to hear of your loss.

    And know she's not in any more pain or discomfort--- doing all the things she loves to do w/o any physical restraints.
    Hugs always,
    Another doggie mother, aka The Queen b*tc* of her household... :)

  5. I´m so sorry for your lost! I know how it feels...been through the same pain. I couldn´t imagine living my life without my dog. the love and lost that you feel will always be there but you learn to live with it and in time life goes on...I started scrapping when my dog died and it was really good for the healing process so let your creativity flow!

  7. I'm sorry to hear about your loss Gloria. I've had several dogs over the years and they are as much a part of the family as any human. Rest in peace Mickey.

  8. My heart goes out to you. We had to let our little guy go a few years ago. It was unexpected. He was sick for a couple days. We left him overnight with the vet and when they went in to get a better look the next day, it was something that could not be repaired. We didn't really know when we saw him that last time that he wouldn't be coming home.

    The only thing we can do is keep them in our hearts and keep on keepin on. It's good you have a creative outlet to channel some energy into!
