A Warm Memory

This is the last video I have of Eko and Penny together. The original caption was going to say –

“On cold fall days the pups bury themselves in covers and do their ‘I’m so excited to see you but it’s too comfy for me to move’ tail wag. Nevertheless, they’re always excited to head to the empty beach, breathe deeply and then keep warm with a raucous game of tag. Once Eko and are worn out, we watch Penny run wild and free, until at last she comes right back to Eko to make sure he saw her fly.”

A lot has changed, but I don’t think I’m going to change a single word of that caption. Because it’s the simple, silly, and joyful things about life with my dogs that I’ve always loved to share most. I shared a lot of sorrow with you these past two weeks and I’m grateful for all the kindness, empathy and support. But today I hope we can share a warm memory and a few smiles.

I am so very for your loss. It really sucks. Life is so hard…

My heart was broken recently…I, too, had a sudden death with my girl Stella. Her sister Peanut just sat in her crate for days, mourning . That broke my heart even more. Death is overwhelming, memories of your heart, and time, help you through it. Give Penny what she needs-your heart-she needs you more than ever. Hug, kiss and play with her. Hug and kiss your bride. Eko would want it that way, and be proud.

We have same sort of blankets for our dogs… still crying about Eko… thinking its just a bad dream… hugged and kissed both of my dogs…
You know, Eko was in a way a little bit ours too. We loved this little gentleman.

This is just so hard. I watch this video and find myself looking for any sort of sign that something was amiss, there is none. It just breaks my heart so much. Eko looked so vital and healthy. I just can’t accept it. It is so hard. I loved the video, but it is so bittersweet. ((((hugs))))
