I promise that I will be more upbeat next week. This week has been hell. Full of sadness, grief, tears and hugs. I have reached my yearly quota for death, and tears, and hugs. And it's only March. (I don't like to cry, or hug- but both are kinda expected in situations like this....)
I'm not normally at a loss for words. But I do find that death is one thing that is hard to talk about. What to say to the grieving owner, how to express your feelings of sympathy. It's just kind of awkward and sad.
Loving dogs is so hard. Our GDG family is great though and we've all come together to support our friends. I think that what really helps to pull people through losses like these is the support of friends. The thoughtful words and sincere sympathy from people who get it. Dog people are good people.
I don't like feeling sad, and I'd much rather be celebrating these great dogs lives, but sometimes it's just hard. I'm hoping a busy weekend of dog stuff and friends will help.
