I take comfort in the fact she's never going to be scared of the seizures she suffered. Peace is starting to find it's way into my heart and our home.
Deprogramming myself from how we structured our life around Betty may take awhile. I still find myself checking the time constantly to make sure I'm not late giving Betty one of her many anti-seizure pills. When one of the Smushies is dreaming and running in their sleep, I get anxious thinking it's a seizure! Poor kids have been woken up so many times this week they're sleep deprived....
Despite my sadness, I know the circle of life continues on. If it weren't for Betty, I don't think I would have learned how incredibly special the French Bulldog Rescue Network is. If it weren't for Betty, we would have never welcomed needy Frenchies into our home, like Rini, Newman and Marge, who are all living out a life they may not have had if it weren't for FBRN. My dedication to rescue and for FBRN will always be in Betty's honor and memory.
I miss her so much, but the tears are starting to ebb a little. Everyone's support and love has made a huge difference. Snuggling with Stella, Gunther and Marge has been helping a lot too.
Love to all our friends,
Shannon and the Smushies
