A lovely weekend

A lovely weekend

Another Monday, they seem to come fast. I had a really nice weekend. My stepdad was here on Saturday for our weekly visit. Love that he comes every week to spend time with me. We pick a show to watch together and each week we watch a few episodes. We just finished How to Fix a Drug Scandal on Netflix. We both liked it a lot. We’ve watched Schitt’s Creek, The Watchman, The Staircase and started Veep (I already watched…

Invest in your best friend

Invest in your best friend

My dad sent me an article about “best friend investments”. It wasn’t talking about human relationships. The article was literally about investing in pet related stocks. They gave a numerical figure, “in the US pet products are a $95.7 billion dollars industry.” I didn’t find that shocking. All I have to do is look around my house to comprehend that figure. However my favorite line was; “pets are making the transition from luxuries to necessities.” I don’t know if I…

In the present moment

In the present moment

The clock is reading 6:34am. I have already cleared both puppy areas, cleaned pooper scooper, fed both dogs (twice because I knocked over Minx’s bowl to which Zoey consumed more than a fair share) and started a load of laundry. This morning it was Zoey who was awake before Minx. When she woke Minx she wanted to play. Try to stop a French bulldog and a puppy from playing. Very unlike my Zoey yet there she was sprite as a…

Week ahead

Week ahead

My new puppy, Minx, will not be here now until Wednesday. Only a day later,not a big deal, but we are excited. I did get new videos. He’s getting big… Zoey normally has the best reaction. She tilts her head while looking at me. Every time I try to video her reaction she doesn’t do it, but this was cute. I’m still doing my fundraiser on Facebook, I’m close to my goal. https://www.facebook.com/donate/269271657770872/269271671104204/. I can’t begin to thank all the…

Feeling Lonely

Feeling Lonely

I have something to admit it. You might see it as slightly pathetic. I see it as a loss. I feel very lonely since Marshmallow died. I didn’t even realize what I was feeling until my daughter left for the night and came back. It wasn’t because she was gone, as silly as it sounds, it’s when she came home. My Zoey missed her and wanted to be with her. So she spent time with my daughter, so sweet. I…

Marshmallow came home

Marshmallow came home

His ashes came separate from his urn. A meltdown. I knew that this error would make the process of getting his ashes emotionally more difficult. I was correct. Years ago, when I lost Boomer, I never saw his ashes. https://multipleexperiences.org/2017/01/04/boomer-came-home/. The urn was closed and I still have no idea how to even open the box. I didn’t know what to expect. It wasn’t ashes. It was like gravel and small rock like pebbles.  Jusr holding that in my…

A meltdown

A meltdown

I got a package yesterday from the pet memorial place. I was certain it was the urn for my Marshy with his ashes and paw prints. I actually went downstairs to the guard booth to pick it up myself. I didn’t want it sitting there. I was already anxious and upset. These were what was left of my sweet boy. I opened the box and the urn, while pretty, was larger than I expected. It was also light, too light….

In loving memory of Marshmallow

In loving memory of Marshmallow

I don’t really know what to write. My heart is so heavy from the loss of my Marshmallow. I’ve stopped crying spontaneously but my heart hurts so much. Going to bed is the hardest part. Marshy was my one dog that ALWAYS slept touching me. Normally he slept under the blankets by my feet. As he got warm under there he’d come out and sleep on the blankets at my feet. This back and forth would go on all night…

Words of support from other dog lovers

Words of support from other dog lovers

I belong to three Facebook groups for dogs. One of them is English bulldogs and two are for French bulldogs. Anytime I see something posted about someone losing a dog, I always try to write. I completely understand and remember the pain of losing Boomer, my English Bulldog, over 3 years ago. When I lost my Marshmallow I posted it on one of the sites. I never realized how much those posts could actually bring a little comfort until it…

The right decision to say goodbye

The right decision to say goodbye

Still struggling with making the right call on my Marshy’s death. I questioned why nothing showed up in his bloodwork, urine or stool taken 6 weeks ago. I biopsies a lump on his side and I questioned a strange growing skin tag. How is he gone six weeks after his annual that he was fine at? My vet called me this morning explaining that cancer is different in dogs. There are some very aggressive cancers that can happen within weeks….
