Not many words, too heartbroken.
Lost my faithful greeter, gardening companion & protector last week.
The photo above is the last one I took of him.
There are so many memories during the course of our journey together.
I feel guilty about his last two years of life. I was so caught up in the intensive process of rehabbing my daughter that I almost missed the way he was aging so quickly. I remember being shocked when I realized his hearing was going. I wish I could have given him more of my time.
He never held it against me. Another reason to love dogs. No matter what I was doing, he had time for me & was part of it. Especially in the garden.
I can't even look out there right now & not see him. He was such a big part of building it, always up to "help," inspect or just keep me company.
I am completely lost without him.
Our house is so quiet.
I have been struck by what a life force he was in our home.
I really hope there is truth to the Rainbow Bridge poem & he is waiting there for me.
I love you Butter Boy.
