An obituary...

My dog died today.

Once upon a time, I set a large pot of grease on fire on the stovetop. After I got the baby out of the house, I came back in to throw the breaker. The dog came in after me, and we ended up pulling each other out.

He slept on the floor on my side of the bed every night of his indoor life.

This sucks.

I hope he went peacefully. Dreaming of chasing squirrels.

I'm so, so sorry. I really do know how bad it hurts. Be good to yourself, and allow yourself to grieve as you see fit.

"If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness."
