Missing @iamhadleyrae 💔 Having me home 24/7 would have been her dream come true. December was such a hard month that I didn’t have it in me to share the news, but the same week that we lost the baby, I said goodbye to my other baby.
I got Hadley Rae when she was 7 weeks old, in 2005. She was a sassy Leo, right from the start (just like her Mommy ☺️). At the time I suffered from severe depression, and my Dr. suggested I get her because taking care of her gave me a fulfilling reason to get up in the morning. Hads became my shadow. She followed every step I would take and licked everything along the way. She brought me smiles during the years I needed her most and was my real life teddy bear every night. She was a bougie jet setter... so tiny, I could fit her under the seat on planes even though most of the time she came out of her bag and slept inside of my hoodie by my tummy. She visited Maui, Park City/ Deer Valley, Miami, Vermont, NYC, LA, the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, Austin, and more, and lived a life full of love.
The last 2 years her eyes got very bad. She became fully blind and was in need of surgery last January. I held off for 2 years on the surgery (till I couldn’t) and was grateful to have made that choice, cause after it she was never the same. My dear Hadley Rae left this world with the touch of mine and my husband’s hands and hearts. I think about her daily and miss her so much, especially being home through all of this. So give your pets some extra love today in her honor and if you knew Hads, please leave a comment with a favorite H. Rae memory 🙏💖 [swipe for more Hadley Rae]
