Dirk

Vanmiddag is geheel onverwacht, maar gelukkig in zijn slaap, onze Dirk overleden. Hij is maar 10 jaar oud geworden.
This afternoon, totally unexpected, but luckely in his sleep, our Dirk past away. He was only 10 years old.

Ik zal zijn zachte lijfje met de meest zachte vacht ooit tussen onze kussen in missen. Zijn gemekker (ja, hij mekkerde, hij kon niet mauwen) als hij wil knuffelen, zijn natte neus in mijn nek of oksel als hij onder de dekens wil....
Slechts drie weken voor onze verhuizing... Ik zag hem al helemaal als Heer van de Vide....
I will so miss his soft body, with the most soft furr you'll ever feel, between our pillows. His bleating (yes, he very softly bleated, he couldn't meow) when he wants to cuddle, his cold wet nose in my neck or armpit when he wants under the blankets....
Just three weeks before our move....  I already pictured him as Lord of the Mezzanine...

Dag lieve Dirkje. We zullen je zó missen.
Goodbye sweet Dirk. We will miss you terribly. 
Samen met zijn broer in de grote stoel. // Together with his brother in the big chair.

  1. Oh, no! I was expecting this would be a "goodbye, house" post, not news of your beloved Dirk passing. I am so, so sorry! Hugs.

  2. My own heart is heavy knowing what you are going through. It is so, so damn hard. I am grateful that Dirk went to Heaven in his sleep. A few weeks ago when I had to make the decision that it was time for Mickey to go over the Rainbow Bridge, it nearly broke me. Either way, the loss of a loved one is like a kick to the stomach. But I would rather have these wonderful creatures in my life, knowing that someday we have to say goodbye, than never having their love at all! I am so glad I got to know Dirk through you! I love you, misha
