I haven’t been writing much lately, because honestly, I just haven’t been in the mood. A couple of posts back I told you all about how our beloved dog Baxter was diagnosed with cancer, and how they didn’t think he would survive for long, and how I was taking the opportunity to take Baxter to do fun stuff like getting a dog sundae and sniffing pet stores and taking long walks. I was pretty much putting all of my energy into making sure Baxter had an awesome day, every day, for as many days as he had left.
We had a great time, and mostly he seemed to feel good and have energy. On Saturday, he had a great day, ran around in the yard, and was generally in a great mood. Later that night he got really sick, and in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, we said goodbye to him, then drove home crying as the sun came up.
So, I guess I will get back on the writing horse soon and start being snarky and tweeting photos of funny food, but right now I’m just missing my friend.
Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out over the past couple of months (and especially in the past couple of days). Your support and sympathy means so much.
