Used to be a ‘new’ Jersey Girl   : now A Colorado Girl

Tuesday, May 20, 2008


Just now I went outside. I sat on the wet and very cold deck planking. Thinking. Missing. Reminiscing. Crying. About the life of a dog.

It rained heavily today. As I sat there, I could hear the trees ridding themselves of the excess water that they received today. Almost as if they were sharing my grief and weeping their own tears along with mine.

Sailor left us today at 6:15 p.m., Eastern standard time. He was very brave up until the very end. So was I. I had to be. I was hospice nurse; nurturer; soul mate. Now my role is finished.

I will be posting more about Sailor soon. Right now the wounds are very raw. And so am I. Forgive me.


Lynne I’m so sorry to hear that Sailor is gone. How sweet of the trees to weep with you. There’s nothing I can say that will help, but please know you are well loved. Sending lots of warmth and love and care in your direction.

May Sailor find his way to dog heaven, and rest in complete and utter peace.

I’m so, so sorry, Lynne. It’s a wonderful joy that these furry creatures bring to our lives, and I am glad that Sailor was so loved and cared for up ‘til the end.

I don’t know what to say…nothing seems right. I have lost my share of pups, family really. It never gets easier.

Know that I cry with you. I am so sorry.

HUGS. Lots and lots of hugs!
