    They are really good. No joke, the dog looks like the greatest dog ever. The last picture in the diary I can feel with every fiber.

    We recently lost ours. Urgh. It was hard not to lose tears in the most random places. Filling the car with gas. The deli at the grocery store. On the phone.

    Get a candle. We got a big rainbow candle in a big glass jar/vase. Set it out where you spend your down time in the evening.  Light it at the slightest thought of her. Gradually you will do it less often. But the candle is there, even if you don't need it.

    We lit ours yesterday. Our girl left Feb 1. She and I had a bond that went very deep. Words fail.

    You did her justice.  The pictures scream it in volumes.

    ...the train's got its brakes on and the whistle is screaming.

      I'm sorry about your girl. They are so close that they do fill everything, don't they?
      I knew I would have a hole a long time ago, and after last summer, figured she might not last another full year, so I started getting as many shots as possible. Felt weird at the time. Not now.

      I will get a candle - just a beautiful way to take a moment and give pause.
