The days coming up to February 22nd, and the ones immediately following it…were tough and filled with tears. While I’m giving thanks for making it to 5 years strong in blogging and celebrating the gift of a new day, my mind flashes every now and then to one of my three precious jack russells, Conor…who went to heaven 9:30am on that day.
I want to acknowledge how loving and loyal pets are, especially when they know how much we care about and for them.
They don’t barter with their affection or joy, gossip or hold grudges like we are sometimes tempted to…they just want to be given water, food, affection, exercise, a safe space to call home, treats, a little mat, beanbag or clean pen/kennel of their own, toes to nibble from time to time, acknowledgments of their fabulous stick-fetching, yarn catching, garden-digging and hunting skills, and owners that appreciate their absolute cuteness, loyalty, hilarious sense of humour, and loving nature.
Conor was precious as pie to me, and I’m grateful for the huge blessing this little powerhouse pup was.
