Roses, Not Daisy

I've lost dogs before, but none have affected me this way. Today was hard. Very hard. Just when I thought I had no more tears left, they came again.

There's so much to miss about Daisy. It's hard to sleep without her by my side, nestled in close to me. It's too quiet. She was so joyful, and always begging someone, anyone to play ball with her. She watched me cook, waiting for any crumbs that might fall, and begged for vegetable peelings. She laid at my feet while I sewed. She waited for Autumn to share her eggs each morning. She rooted through the throw pillows on the couch while I excercised.

Now, it's just quiet. And cold. And lonely.

Autumn brought me roses to cheer me, but they're no Daisy.

What a sweet thing for Autumn to do. They are beautiful. A great dog is an important member of the family. It is right and normal to miss her like crazy. But....it is no fun.

Rachel especially liked Daisy when we were there!

Sweet Autumn...very thoughtful.

I am sharing your sadness, dear friend.

Some dogs just do that to you. We had one of those named Kisses. It's been a long time now since she passed yet there are times I ache with missing her.

What you're feeling is normal, it *will* get easier. Hang in there. (o:
