There Will Be Rock Concerts In Heaven, Marie Antoinette



I received a phone call from my mom in Louisiana this morning that has laid heavy on our hearts all day. My first pet of my own, my little dog that I adopted my very first year of law school, that bore the name of my favorite historical French figure, Marie Antoinette, passed away today. 


I realize I never spoke about her much on the blog. She lived with my parents after our last move and remained with them when we moved to Boston. Her health was very poor and I did not think it fair to bring her on such a long road trip. 

Nettie loved her MeeMaw and PeePaw and she adored Military Husband at first sight (just like her mommy). She loved curling up with Military Husband.


She was #MaddiethePug's first friend in Louisiana and she quickly became Maddie's best friend. 


She loved eating poppy corn and having rock concerts with her Daddy (Fall Out Boy's Dance, Dance was one of her favorite songs). Military Husband would tell you she had great taste in music.

I am going to miss her so much, and I wish I could have been there with her when she crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She had my back in law school and was always there to protect me. I keep thinking about her and how she was such a big part of my life as a young woman.

We will miss you Nettie and never forget you.

  8. Ahhh noooo, so sorry to hear about this. My parents have my first dog and he's 9, he's still got some time, but we're all walking on eggshells when that day comes. It'll be hard for everyone ... Hope you're doing well!

  9. I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss! I swear that I think that it's even harder when it's your very first pet that you own separate from your parents. Focusing on all the fun times that you had is definitely the best way to make it through this.

  15. Oh no, I am so sorry. I always hate when pets pass. My parents have the cat that I had in high school. I think he's about 15 as well and is starting to fail :/
