a sad time

i said i'd write about my recent pause.  we lost this little boy on august 12.

we took him in as a stray, probably around a year old or so, and had him just under two years.  actually, i had been looking forward to his september 'birthday' post.  he was always a sickly thing, and i kind of knew he wouldn't have a long life, but it was still hard and i still wasn't ready.  i still can't believe it.

he got sick really fast and we don't know why he died.  i was a mess for a little while and now i'm more at peace, but this is the first time i've looked head on at a picture of him and it's kind of hard to swallow.  it really broke my heart.

  2. oh, I'm so sorry for your loss. pets are members of the family, and it's never easy to suffer a loss of a family member. Big hugs.

  4. Oh! I am so sorry, it is a terrible thing to lose a pet. I know when I lost Harper, I was devastated. It still hurts, but he is with us. Just like Elmore; with you always.
