Now what did you call this again?My tears had finally caught up with me upon learning the news of Toby's passing at The (mis)Adventures of Sage while I tried to eat a bagel. I felt a the presence of a muzzle next to me and turned to a drooling Chance at my side. My tears fell harder as I shared my bagel with him until I was half smiling through them. If there is anything that could tell me that the universe was OK, it was sharing food with Chance.
Having the luxury of the kitchen as his domain, he follows me every where I go in the kitchen, sits at the table when eating, hangs out by the stove when cooking, accompanies me to the fridge and is my side man when prepping at the counter. Mealtimes are our favorite times. There isn't nothing he won't try and I've come to love spending my meals with him.
Is it almost ready, Mom?? Can't wait!!
If there is one thing that gives me comfort, to know that everything is alright, it is sharing a meal with Chance.
What is that special time for you and your dog?
This post is dedicated and inspired by another soul who was lost from this Earth but is watching over his family with love. Toby's passing reminded me of the little things that we do with our dogs each day that aren't so little and mean the most to us and to treasure every moment of our time here. Our hearts and paws are with Sage and her family during their time of loss.
