Joy in the Morning

More: We lost our previous pup Gus unexpectedly to heart disease. We all were devastated. There was such a hole in our hearts that I feared could never be filled. My husband secretly found Ollie for our grieving family. I was so afraid that I wasn’t ready for another pup, that somehow it was disloyal to Gus, but when I held Ollie in my arms, I knew he was meant to be with us and a blessing, not to replace Gus, but to remind us that these special family members are meant to be loved, cherished, and cared for every moment we are blessed to have them with us.
