Saying Goodbye

Hello everyone. It's been a long, hard week. Book fair at school/work and of course the students are getting wild because summer vacation is coming. Today I had to put to sleep our dog of 13 years, Rascal. He will be sorely missed. He just got so sick last night and I couldn't bear to see him in anymore pain. Rascal was very much Seth's dog. They did a lot of things together.
Trigger keeps wondering where he is. He's pacing a lot. He'll settle down eventually. Trigger turned 2 today. So there's a bright spot. Perhaps we'll find him a companion. Someone closer to his age that will play with him.
So, not feeling too cheerful I turned to my sewing tonight. I got my bedroom curtains done, well at least one side. I went to F&M Fabrics over spring break. A dangerous store if you like to decorate and sew. It's huge and the prices are right. I only paid $5 a yard for all the fabric I bought. Score! Here's the one side. It's night and I know we're not supposed to use a flash but I couldn't wait to post a picture. I'll take better ones soon.

Mucho hugs to all,
Amanda

So sorry about the loss of Rascal. I know how hard that is. Two years ago, we lost our 21 year old cat, then the following week unexpectedly lost the most favorite dog we've ever had. Hate to say it, but do not be surprised if it takes Trigger a while to settle in. When our dog died, we had 3 other dogs. They were depressed for 6 weeks and were not truly normal for 6 months.

After seeing that, I know animals have far more feelings, emotions, and memories than most experts give them credit for.

Again, sorry for your loss. It sounds like Rascal was very much loved.

So sorry about your pup. They just become members of our family. We have lost loved animals too and it takes a while to get used to them not wandering around the house.

I'm so sorry about losing your sweet friend, Rascal. Sigh...reminds me of when we had to say goodbye to our Honey last year. She was our beloved golden of 10 years. They are truly a part of the family and tug at our hearts so much.

Will be keeping all of you in my prayers.
