10 thoughts on “Aftermath”

  1. Hugs, the loss of a family member is always hard, no how many legs they have. Call me if you need to talk.

    your corn wolf is awesome. I’m impressed. Something I would not have tried for fear of it not looking like a wolf!

  2. Though words are small comfort, you have my deepest, heartfelt empathy (and big, fat, hot tears). Just _thinking_ about (inevitably) losing my boy tears my heart into pieces. Animals leave an indelible mark on our lives.

  3. I am truly sorry for your loss. I’ve been through there a few times myself. Time helps but the common saying about “time healing all wounds” is but a lie from my experience. It just becomes less painful with time and you start slowly but surely enjoying life again. Sooner or later a new companion will cross your path, probably when you’ll least expect it…
    Take care of yourself…

  4. So sorry Anne – I understand how you feel, have lost fur babies through the years and sometimes still well up with their memories. Anyone who does thinks “no animal has touched my life” has either been terribly sheltered, or should be avoided at all costs for if they feel nothing for animals, I shudder to imagine their feelings about people.

  5. Thank you, all of you. Your kind words has kept this blog afloat. It’s been hard, and so many memories keep catching me teary eyed, and it’ll just take time to heal. When you live alone for 3/4 of your life, that little patch of barking fur becomes enormous company. After all the tragedies, violence, homelessness, the military, etc., that little patch of fur became a companion. We’ll be placing a marker for this remarkable dog this week. Thank you for understanding, and knowing how it feels. It’s rare these days.
