In Memoriam: dog edition

Hey all, hope your week is going well.
Things have been so crazy for me lately. It seems like I'm saying that a lot, right? I don't know what it is with this year, but I just can't catch up. Whether it be work, or chasing rent, or people in my life or anything else, seems like I'm living the one step forward, two steps back creed.

And to top it all off, my beautiful Handsome Man of 7 years, Brian, crossed over to the rainbow bridge last Thursday.

It was quick. He got bloat, and I wasn't going to put a 9 year old bull mastiff through any type of surgery, so I made the tough decision to let him go.

It all happened within 2 hours. Two hours from happy old man, to at the vet saying goodbye.

Sigh.

So now that my best friend is gone, I'm forcing myself to double down on everything.
Sorry I've been so MIA on this blog. Sorry I've said all this before. Life can be a mother fucker, ya know?!

Here is a picture of my lovely handsome man.
I miss him bunches.

  5. I'm so sorry for your loss. We also just had to make that decision for our little dog. His back went out and he lost the use of the back part of his body. We also didn't want to put him through a surgery that might not even be successful. It's so hard. :( God bless.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when you first brought Brian home, and I always enjoyed your posts about him. May he rest in peace, and may you find comfort in your memories of him.

  8. I follow your blog, and peep in from time to time, enjoying all the vintage good things you share. I am so, so sorry about the huge loss of your precious handsome guy. Our fur angels are truly our family and this sounds very traumatic. I'm caring for our fourteen year old blind doglet and it is heartbreaking at times. We have five dogs altogether and five cats too.

    I hope you don't mind me sticking my head in here, I just wanted to let you know I'm out here and am so sorry. God's blessings and care in these future days. I know what it's like, we've had two losses as well in the past recent two years, it's hard, really hard...

  10. It's been seven years? You just brought him home! But...oh. Time. My kids are adults now. Okay.
    He was a good gentleman, a credit to your parenting. I am always thinking the good stuff your way. Will keep a thought for him as well.
