In the early morning hours of August 31st, Ivan lost his battle with Ehrlichia. He was, without question or doubt, the sweetest dog to ever have lived and will always have a place in my heart. He slept on my pillow, licked away my tears, and was always more than eager to please in any way he could. Though we had him only a brief seven months, I loved him like he was my own child, and I can't imagine a world without him. I hope he's up there romping and playing in that big dogpark in the sky, but I can't help but wish we had had just a little more time with him here on Earth. The world is a harder place without him. Still, I am grateful to God for the time we weregranted and for knowing this four-legged angel, and I know that he could not have found a more loving home. Please pray for our family as we learn to cope with this loss.
Note: In tribute to my sweet pup, I am keeping this post at the top of my page for at least the next month. Possibly longer. For newer content, please scroll to the next post.
