Foxglove Farm Miss Marple “Agatha”
May 1st, 2007 – July 15th, 2019
Dearest friends, I have dreaded sharing this post, been literally unable to write it without so many tears that it became impossible to see the words in front of me. We lost our beloved Agatha July 15th, just a few months past her 12th birthday… She was beautiful and happy and her silly lovely self until the end, no struggle, no pain, the Lord answered my prayers and she went quietly and oh so so quickly, she was simply unbelievable, gone…
The house echos with emptiness. For over 12 years she was my constant companion, my faithful shadow, my funny, sweet utterly beautiful silken little Spaniel. I’ve wept until I’m sick with it. My recent vocal cord surgery has been slow in healing. I sat in my doctor’s office and my kind-hearted doctor softly told me that sometimes conflict in our hearts could delay healing. I broke down in embarrassing choking sobs as it came to me. I have worked so hard to keep going, to pretend that all was normal, to place puppies and work on Agatha’s products, anything to keep from facing her absence and for some reason the almost impossible task of telling you all that she is gone. Almost as if telling you would make it terribly real, that if I didn’t admit it to you, that somehow it wasn’t really true.
Gone to Heaven where I believe He keeps all the things I’ve loved and lost. Even these months later, I can hardly see the screen to write, I’ve dreaded sharing this with you, her friends and mine who though we’ve never met in person, still I’ve felt your love for me, for my precious lamb.
