The hardest decision an animal lover ever has to make is to let them go. K and I spent the weekend lounging under the pine trees near our house. I could see how tired she was, and yesterday, her eyes told me that it was time. Later, when we walked out of the vet clinic just after K's passing, a huge rainbow arced across the entire eastern sky. The tears flowed down my face.
I thank all of you for your support through this journey. This blog will continue but, depending on how I feel, it may be a little erratic in the coming days.
The photos in this post were taken during a hike last July 15th at almost exactly the time that K died yesterday. On that beautiful summer day, it never crossed my mind that my relatively young dog who I loved with all my heart would die a year later. Seize the day, my friends.
And, this amazing and soulful painting, given to us by you and painted by Kathleen Coy, will help carry us through the coming days of grief.
