I haven’t felt like writing lately. I haven’t felt like much of anything. My beautiful 10 1/2 year old bulldog, Gracie, died two weeks ago today. I knew it would be painful but I had forgotten how bad it can be. Thank goodness for my two remaining bulls – they’re seeing us through this dark time. I’ve sat down to write – but thoughts don’t come.
I know this will pass. But I never cease to be amazed at the overwhelming effect emotions have on your ability to function.
She had a wonderful life (for the 5 1/2 years we had her after her life as a breeder was over) and she brought many people a great deal of joy. She had a very peaceful and quick passing so there was no pain and suffering – until now – facing life without her. It’s hard to imagine feeling like my old self again but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. At least I keep telling myself that.
