fur babies

we all have them. well most of us have them. These wonderful bundles of fur that fill in the empty spaces of our hearts and take up room on our beds. The reason 2 people have a California King and sleep in the space of a twin.

Today my world is short 1. I did not know that my heart was so filled with that giant fur ball. He was no average dog. 100 plus pounds of fur and love. There was sweetness and gentleness in every ounce of him. Nothing more than time was to blame. He was just not meant to be here longer than he was. But he will live on in my heart.

He was my dear husbands furry savior. In some sad and dark days he was there when no one or nothing else could be. He was graced with a name that meant more than others new. A sweet homage to his late mom. We make bonds, things that keep us tethered to this life and this world when we are not so sure we want to stay. And that is what he was. A bond to the past and to the future. A ribbon of light in a moment of darkness.

Farewell to our gentle giant.

    Oh, I am sorry — fur ones = love. It’s very simple
