I never realised how soon the day would be when I wrote this. And I write it with total devastation, and lots of tears.
Some of you may already know Shonas story. I need to write my feelings to try and come to terms with this. At the moment I just feel gutted.
WEll this afternoon it all happened. My mum rang in tears. Shona had been picking up and going well but when my parents got home today she had gone down hill badly. She was having trouble walking and she looked so very sad. She looked drained, and went back to the puppy dog look. We new that this was time. We sat with her for a few hours until the vet came. He confirmed what we probably already knew but didnt want to hear.
At 4.25pm today she was put to her rest at only 5 years of age. We were all with her and said our goodbyes. Even my dad cried and I have never seen that before. She was so special. Her poor little mate candy didnt know until later what had happened. Shona has gone to be cremated on her own and will be brought home hopefully tomorrow. We will have a special little family get together for her.
I cant get rid of that sick feeling in my tummy, and the huge lump in my throat and I cant stop crying. We are all going to miss her so much. She was my mums little baby, so I am crying for her too. I know she is didnt suffer and is in a better place but its just so hard to know I will not have her run and greet me at the door anymore.
We love you little shony pony, you will forever be in our hearts.
Thanks for reading, I better go before I fill the keyboard with tears and it doesnt work anymore.
