I wonder how many times I've used that term on here?!? More than once, I'm sure. ;-)
I have a bunch of "drafts" - posts that I started and never finished for one reason or another... because I thought I should keep my mouth shut or I was a looking for a picture or because I couldn't get my thoughts together. I know I had this link in one of them. I'm not sure if I ever posted it so I'll do it now. It's a tribute to a dog named Duke. Photogtapher Robyn Arouty photographed a friend's dog on his last day on Earth. It has resurfaced so that's what reminded me of it… Click this link: I DIED TODAY.
I've been thinking about RoseBud lately… I guess because her anniversary is coming up. Some times when I pull out of the driveway I go right back to that day she collapsed in my arms and David went flying to AVETS. I can still hear us screaming and telling her we love her. Isn't that weird?
I don't know what was wrong with her or how long she would have lasted if she didn't but I do know she never should have gone on with that hike. I tried to carry her but couldn't… she never should have been forced to be a "big dog." It makes me sick. I hope he thinks about that for all the days of his life. He probably won't, but he should.
I still hear her coughing like she did in the car at that bagel place and that night that I stayed home because we didn't want her to be alone while he went to Paula's for one of the boys birthdays…
Every time I go to the vets and put Lily on the table I see her. Maybe it's because the vet STILL has one of our old RoseBud Christmas cards in Lily's chart - but still!
Funny how she's still around - everywhere.
Love The Bud.
...wherever, wherever, wherever you go...
