Saturday Sparks Link Party 410

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 410!

Starting off today's party with our sweet Sophie!

Our sweet pomeranian, Sophie at Pieced Pastimes

She turned 14 in November and is showing signs of her age.

She is nearly deaf.

Arthritis has settled in and taken hold - some days are better than others.

Gone are the days of jumping on and off the couch or bed.

On top of all of this, she has been sick for the past couple of days.

In the midst of all her struggles, she remains the sweetest thing you could ever ask for.

We find ourselves loving on her a bit more lately.

"If the kindest souls were rewarded with the longest lives, dogs would outlive us all."

~ Ricky Gervais

Now, let's get this party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 409.

  4. Sophie is a sweet girl. It's so hard to see our pets (and people!) in failing health. Enjoy every sweet moment you can. And I most definitely need that printable of I'm sorry for the things I said when it was winter! Oh boy, spring can't come soon enough. Thank you for hosting us, Suzanne.

    1. Thanks Rita! Yes, it is difficult to watch the years take their toll on our furry friends as well as our loved ones. None of us can detour the circle of life. Regarding winter, know that the light of spring will be here in due time to wash away the winter blues. Have faith. Your friend, Suzanne.

    1. Thanks Marie! Thankfully, she is having a better day today. That seems to be the new normal for her - one day good, one day bad. Your heart hanger is such a cute idea. Perfect little touch for Valentine's day. Take care, Suzanne.
