Noodle joined our family about 5 years and 5 weeks ago when she was just about to turn 7. On Sunday morning, a few minutes before 4 am, Noodle died surrounded by myself, my husband, and our 14 year old son. She was 12 years and 1 week old, exactly. It was heartbreaking.
We have been very tearful the past two days. One of the hardest things was telling our almost 18 year old son. He was in Mexico helping to bring an orphanage up to code during his Spring Break. He returned home 13 hours after Noodle died. Noodle loved him best and he was totally devoted to her.
Monday morning I spent a few hours going through my photos on Flickr. I found 81 photos with Noodle in them. I tagged her in each one and created an album of those photos. I found some really sweet shots. I know I have many more because my Flickr account has only a fraction of my photos uploaded into it. I want to get the rest on there and see what other sweet photos of Noodle I have.
My mind has been busily thinking of different things I can do with the photos and videos to help my children memorialize our beloved dog.
Here is a sample of the sweet images I found.
