The last several days have been very upsetting to The Wees. My Dad passed away Wednesday here at home after a 2 year battle with cancer. The Wees are very attached to my parents, as they both have lived with me for 16 years. Mom is blind. My Dads passing has been very difficult for my whole family, and you all know how in tune Chi's are to your emotions, stress, etc.

Yesterday evening there were several guests at the house. I had The Wees in my room to avoid anyone stepping on them, getting into flowers/plants, etc. I went in my room to check on them, and Gia went out of the room when I walked over to close my bathroom door (which I didn't notice). We still have one bathroom on the end of renovation. Someone had gone in there and left the door open. When everyone left I went to let them out of my room and couldn't find Gia. In a panic I'm running all over the house calling her name. Checked in rooms, under the sofa, everywhere. I remembered the door to the bathroom being renovated being open. Low and behold, baby Gia had taken refuge in a drawer. :lol: Bless her heart!

Awe poor Gia :) It makes me sad to see her like that. I am also so very sorry TLI to hear of your dad's passing. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family through this tough time. All of us are also sending gentle puppy hugs and kisses to the Chi Wees.

Thank you so much, Laura! :love2: Even though we knew it was coming, you are just never ready to say goodbye. My comfort comes from knowing he's no longer in pain and is now with The Lord. He was a great Man, wonderful husband and father. He was a blessing to our family in more ways than I could ever express. We will miss him. :(

Yes, it makes me sad to see them this way too. They know something has happened that is causing distress to the family. They know my Dad is gone. They go to my parents bedroom door several times a day. All of the company, etc is very unsettling to them. So many in and out. They've been lil troopers, though.

Thank you again, Laura! (((Hugs)))

I am so sorry to hear that your dad passed away. Even when you know it is coming it is difficult. I hope you and your mom and the wees can take comfort in one another.
Thank you so much, Terri! :love2: We are all hanging in there, considering.

Hugs to you and the weds! To Mom, too.
so sorry for the loss of your father.

Take some time for yourself. when my dad passed, also from cancer, everyone fell apart, so I had to be strong, which kind of put some people I'll at ease. But when I got home, I was able to let it all go!!!

I live in MA and mom and dad lived in FL.

You are in my thoughts.

Thank you so much, Cindy! :love2:

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dads passing. :( It's very tough to go through. Even when you have time to prepare it just doesn't help. You go through so many emotions. The first day my whole family fell apart. Since then we are just going through the motion. My Mom is 84, Dad was 87. They were married 63 years. She's having a very hard time. :( I try to be strong, but I know once all the funeral is over and family and friends aren't around, that's when it will take the greatest toll on me. But I do believe that God never brings you to something that he can't bring you through. So by faith we will all be okay. My Dads memories and our missing him will never end. Again, I'm so very sorry you had to go through losing your Dad. (((Hugs)))

So sorry to hear about your father, hugs. Baby Gia, glad she is safe, I was holding my breath hoping she was in the house and didn't get out the door to outside, with so many people coming and going. She is precious.

Thank you so much, Evelyn! :love2: Yeah, you could call me overprotective. The Wees hold our hearts in the palm of their paws. If I am busy, there is always someone here to watch over them. Thank goodness they are trained not to go out the front or back door unless on command. But with so much going on, you just never know. I was in complete panic mode.

Thank you so much, Rachel! :love2: We want to question Gods reasoning for taking him here at Christmas. But we know that's not right. There is a reason, not for us to understand. Needless to say, this Christmas brings much pain for my family and I.

I am so very sorry to hear about your dear Husband's passing. It's so hard to get through. A mountain of emotions to deal with. Yes, our Chi babies bring comfort that only a Chi lover would understand. I'm so happy you have Honey to comfort you. (((Hugs)))

Thank you so much, Pam! :love2: It has been tough. We have good moments, then moments where we feel like we can't cope. :( The funeral was this evening. It's so hard dealing with my own grief, and then seeing my Mom, girls & Grandbaby so sad is just heart wrenching. :( I just keep reminding myself that he's in a better place with no pain and suffering. Thanks again, Pam! (((Hugs)))
