I used to get upset when a blogging dog would pass and you would almost never hear about the dog again. I had invested my heart and emotions into that dog for years and poof, they were gone. I felt like I never got any closure and I would struggle with my emotions.
Now I get it.
I wrote this a couple of weeks ago:
The feelings of loss is still strong. I keep thinking I'll be able to write about some of the memories I have with Chance, Blaze and Fiona, but for now it still hurts too much. My sweet babies are gone and I can only digest it in little bits. So much loss in such a short amount of time. It is still so hard to believe. So hard.
I am still trying to comprehend it. I didn't understand because I was able to write and write about Brut, about his passing and after. I wanted to do something different and share about the loss and the pain and the hope and I can't do it with Chance, Blaze and Fiona. I am still stunned and there are no words. I can't even seem to dig up a picture to post. The effort and emotions are too much.
So for those of you I silently criticized and was disappointed in, for not sharing more of your dog after they passed, I am sorry. I didn't understand. Forgive me.
I get it now.
