Rest in Peace...

It is a sad day in the Holt household.  Our dog Brodie, has passed away.  He had been sick the last few months and he and Ryan had come to terms that they would need to part.  Although this was the hardest decision for Ryan to make, Brodie is no longer suffering. 
When I married Ryan, Brodie and Tucker came with him.  I didn't grow up with dogs so he and Tucker are my first and although we have had a rocky relationship at times (stealing our food and getting in the trash)... I do truly love Brodie and will miss him (especially for the relationship he had with Ryan and the boys).  
I will be letting the boys know the sad news when I pick them up from school today.  They will have a hard time (Brodie was their favorite) but hopefully they will realize that he is in a better place now and is no longer hurting.  Isabelle on the other hand, doesn't have a clue...both Brodie and Tucker became outside dogs right around the time she was born so she just looks at them strangely when they sniff her feet.  She isn't sure what to think of all that hair! 
We love you Mr. Brodie Alowishus Holt!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this!! It's so hard to lose a pet, especially when having to explain it to children. I hope all goes well, and RIP Brodie!
