Tonight John and I are mourning. We are trying so hard to smile and be happy for Wynette but we miss her. John and I have been crying on and off tonight. We will turn around and see her rug without her there and start crying. John can't even take the kennel out to the garage yet. He's having a really tough time and he is sick, which doesn't help. The irony comes into play because this week my three-month nephew was diagnosed with Leber's disease, which ironically causes blindness. Right now all he can see is light and will most likely be blind his whole life. With broken hearts we said good-bye to Wynette and knew that she was born to lead and she has a purpose for someone as precious as my nephew. Perhaps God let us care for her so we could know about the Guide Dog program in years to come for my sweet nephew. .
Here are some of my favorite pictures of our puppy (she will always be a puppy to us) during her last few weeks with us. By the way, Wynette earned the name of Mary Puppins in our kennel club: she truly was practically perfect in every way.
