My dog died thanksgiving weekend.
She was a great dog. She loved the kids and was always happy to have their attention even when they were dressing her up or teasing her. She loved people.
I was sad about losing her, yet glad she didn’t suffer too long with the tumor that was destroying her insides. It was a bleak November day, just on the edge of winter, but the sunset that evening was really beautiful. I felt like it was special for us. An acknowledgment of losing a special friend.
