It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my sweet Plummy has gone to the bridge after a brave and valiant fight. She stayed longer than anyone thought she could, because of Love.
Even though we only had 1 1/2 years together, I feel truly blessed to have had her in my life for that time. I said it once and will say it again. She rescued me as much as I rescued her.
Plummy's departure was very peaceful. She was in the comfort of her own house, in her mama's arms knowing right up until the end how very loved she is. I spent a good long time beforehand snuggling with her on the couch in our favorite position. Gently saying all the things that needed to be said out loud even though they were understood with one look exchanged between her big brown eye and my little green one.
I told her that her journey here was coming to an end, and that it was time for her to go be with her pug brother, Pugsley now. Where I know he will take good care of her and show her all around. I told my sweet girl that she will never be itchy again, or sick, or weak. I told her how much I will miss everything about her and we said many goodbyes. When the time actually came there was nothing left to say but one more, I love you.
