Today our Diva passed away. Too young, our girl was only 10 years old and had come into the family at the age of five. I will never forget this day, because it was December 31, 2012. She was adopted and before she in our lives, she had a terrible life. She wasn’t tidy trained, she didn’t know how to play and didn’t even know what to do with her first bone. In the beginning it was quite a challenge to earn her trust, but together with our dog Matsi we learned her to how life is be a happy dog.
We will miss her, but she will live on in our hearts forever. After the tears of sorrow comes the smile of memory. Are the photos a memory of life and have a special place in our hearts forever.
It won’t happen often that I share something from someone else, but this poem in Dutch that Marcel wrote about our Diva. I’ll make an exception for that, because she was our Diva, our sweet little girl and our baby.
Lots of love,
