    Since I was his surrogate mom, I actually taught him to hike a leg.  
    He was smart and good and awesome and I spent hours today making his grave lovely.
    Let me say, it will be very, very lovely!!!! Climbing roses!!!!
    I just think the next few days will be awful, then less awful, then only slightly awful, then sporadically awful, until they will just be days good or bad of their own accord.
    I am in the awfulest stage at the moment.  The awful factor decreases.  But because I am the way I am, there is never a relief from awful.  I am  just wired that way.
    There is no escape from the video that runs in my head.
    The only time I ever had a champion defend me in my entire life was when he grabbed the leg of my drunken yard guy who had made a move on me.  
    That ended the guy's attempt.
    Time will cure a lot of my awfulness.  
    The days seems long, and time is suddenly passing slowly.  Imagine that.

      but eventually you'll just look back at all the wonderful memories of your tie with him.

      I know it's hard when you raise them from a puppy like I did with my Buddy dog.

          it was the same with Buddy and me.

          He died in my bed right beside me. It was around 1am in the morning. I woke up just as he was passing. I kissed his little face and told him how much I loved him and he was gone.

          I don't know, but I think that was far better than finding him in the morning. At least we were together right to the very last moment.

          Buddy's ashes and his picture are right next to my bed. And, he's been gone for five years now, but the first thing I do in the morning is look at his picture and say good morning to him.

          I may be nuts, but it makes me feel like he and I are still connected and I just know that if there is any kind of "after life" that we will be reunited.

          When I think of my Buddy dog I think of the Rainbow Bridge and being with him again.
