Its midweek and we are still feeling the effect of Burli's absence. She’s only been gone four full days but she was such an integral part of our family that it’s hard not to miss her.
It’s all I can do not to call and check in on Burli but it’s important for her family to have uninterrupted time with her. As much as we want to know how and what she’s doing, it’s no longer our place to impose. It saddens us even more that with her unexpectedly not coming back that we were not really able to say good-bye. Of course, there are photos galore to remind us but it doesn’t compare to seeing her tail wag or her soft smile.
Fostering is tough. I applaud people and families that make room in their lives to regularly and temporarily provide love and care to homeless pets. Emotionally, it’s one of the hardest things we’ve done. It could be because of the sweet tenderness that we found in Burli too. She is very special and has a lucky family caring for her.
I don’t know if her mom will be able to continue maintaining her page so this will remain as a memorial to the gentle soul that touched our lives so profoundly. We love you Burli.
