Just a little of what's going on. Hope you are all doing well.
Boxer was given 3 months to live from his cancer. Today marks 3 months, 3 weeks and 2 days that he is still alive. And we are so very grateful! He is still doing pretty well even though the cancer is starting to spread. Please pray for him. Thank you!
Every night when the darkness settles in earlier and dominates the evening it feels like there is dead space. It is the hardest part of the day when the loss of the dogs, especially Zappa, is prevalent.
I make my own Christmas cards every year with the dogs in them. Creating this year's card was a reality check that they are all gone.
I have an image in my mind of a dog I would like to have. I hold onto it when times are hard and I'm afraid I'll never have a dog again.
Every night we still say good night to the 24 Paws. Mark sings to them and I talk to them or lay silent while holding a pillow or blanket. I feel their spirits strongest then and it is comforting.
Until next time...
