Sunday I got a call from my mum, strangely I knew what was coming when Paula answered the phone.
Muffin our family dog for 16 years had to be put to sleep. People dont understand how hard this can be for folk, it is like a family member passing away.
Think Ails post sums up how all my family are feeling about this loss, but the person I am most worried about is my almost 3 year old daughter who goes down to Carlow to see Muffin first then nana and grandad. We have said nothing to her yet about this and probably wont until the next time we go down, hopefully her young age will mean she wont get to upset.
