A TRIBUTE TO JEFFIE
(this was in my post yesterday, but I'm trying to reach everyone who only visits on particular meme days)
This is a memorial to my beloved Jeffie. Most of you have read about him and probably come to love his clown-like antics here on my blog - if not, just go down to my "label cloud" and click on Jeff or Jeffie and you will. On Monday, September 13 (four days after my birthday) Jeff was diagnosed with bone cancer in his right front leg. To make an agonizing story short, and bearable, it went fast and we gave him his wings on Wednesday. Jeffie would have been with us for five years in October, and would have been twelve years old in December. Here is the last picture I have of him, taken a week before his death. His leg shows misshapen, and it got twice as bad as the days went by. His eyes show the pain he was in, even with 24 hour pain meds. He told me he loved me and wanted nothing more than to be with me but to please let him go. It was the right decision, at the right time, but oh my God how I miss him!
And here is the Ruby Tuesday part of this post:
