Dirty Scraps Challenge #20

Time for another challenge over at Dirty Scraps! This time the prompt is Moving On Up!

I scrapped about the decision to put our pup Onyx to sleep. It was a very difficult one for me, something that weighed heavily on me for months. I still feel twinges of guilt, but I know given the circumstances it was the best decision we could have made for her.

this was the day i learned how much strength i really had. i had dealt with putting dogs to sleep before, but never have I had to make a decision like that one for onyx. she was healthy and young, but mentally unstable. although she was young at only 5 years old, she had always shown signs of aggresion. it had gotten to the point that we were not safe, nor were grayson or the other dogs. the decision to put her to sleep was not easy, but over time it became clear it was the only option. while we miss her daily, we really had no other options. i have learned to be at peace with my decision, and she will always be in our hearts.

I used digital elements from various different designers.

Head on over to Dirty Scraps and check out the challenge. There is a prize up for grabs from Paper Wishes, but you can't win unless you participate!!
