It breaks my heart to be typing another one of these blog posts. When my mom told me the news all I could utter was
“WHAT THE FUCK?”
Which I still think was the only appropriate response.
Some of you may have read about my sweet dog Shadow. She died a few weeks ago when she was tragically hit by a car.
It was awful and horrific for everyone involved and so not the way she deserved to go.

Now, not even two months later we lost our sweet Walter.
I like to think that Shadow was too lonely without him.
Walter was attacked and killed, brutally by a pit bull that was brought over to stay (after he had got into a fight with a different cat, in which that cat beat the snot out of him)
Another horrific and tragic and awful death.
My heart aches for any pain they felt.
My heart aches for my mother who had to take care of both situations, and has to live with those images in her head.
My heart aches for my siblings who loved both pets ferociously.
Why something like this had to happen twice, so close together, I don’t know.
It’s hard to swallow.
Actually it’s hard not to be angry.
So unbelievably angry.
Here is my sweet little pain in the ass
He was sweet a lot of the time and annoying too 🙂
He would meow incessantly, especially after Shadow died.
He would lay on the table in the sun
He would snuggle up to you if you had a warm laptop.
We actually lost him for a few days one winter and we found him outside in a tree!
He loved being outside without, laying on the patio.
He was quite the character and a loving sweet boy.
I miss him and Shadow everyday.
