backI've been spending the last few weeks grieving. It has been a rough road - harder than I expected. Most of my path to recovery is being chronicled at LiveJournal. For now I'll just tell you that one step in that path was getting a dog - a Collie/Golden Retriever mix. He is sweet, docile, and sometimes nervous, but gorgeous.
I'm also playing an internet game and humbly beseech your participation. If you do "pass the potato," please leave me a comment so I'll know it was a Blogger reader who did it. Thanks!

we let him go
1996 - 2006
When we got him to the veterinary emergency room, they said he was severly anemic--his blood was just unable to deliver the oxygen his organs needed.
We spent several minutes alone with him, saying good-bye. And then we let him go. We held him as he went, a leaving that was very quick and peaceful.
Rick is out back digging his grave. I'm making chili. As Rick said, he's doing the Scottish thing, and I'm doing the Southern Baptist thing.
Good bye, buddy. Thank you for bringing me so much love and joy. I will miss you. We'll both miss you.
