A DOGS love & the pain saying good bye
One thing I find interesting? ADV riders seem to have in common is the love for their pets and life. I have no real tangible evidence but I would say many of us who ride have dogs. Having said that want to find my soft spot? Loving my dogs and then having to say good bye. I work in an industry where death and dying happens everyday. Human beings I mean. I cope with that professionally but I feel that perhaps witnessing all that pain and suffering comes out in me when I lose a dog.
Over the last 3 years I find myself grieving the loss of a dog I cherished. In June 2014 it was my crazy Beagle, Cruizer. May 2015 my beautiful dog named Sierra who needed some elderly rest and head on over the rainbow bridge to hang out with Cruizer. Today, February 24th, 2016 I had to let go of my determined to live dog Xander. 16 almost and has been living with congestive heart failure since 2008.
Blogging and FB help me move on. I appreciate others sharing their own stories and pictures. I loved my dogs more than people some would say and it hurts like hell when it’s time to say good bye.
So, this simple post is just for me to share the 3 loves of my life that I will always remember and cherish. My dog family are now all together. I have to believe that and a virtual friend from my FB posted this…
And of course who doesn’t love and need to watch this video…one that I watch every time one of my dogs pass away.
