Thank you for all of your kind words of sympathy that you sent either by a comment or by email over the past couple of days. They have meant so much. I know many of you have been through the loss of a pet and can understand the emotional toll it takes on you. It was certainly a hard day, but it is comforting to know that she is finally at peace.
We had some wonderful last moments with her on Tuesday. Ryan got up extra early to have some time with her before he left for classes. She seemed to know that HE needed this time and she sat still and let him just love on her. (She had usually been quite agitated with our contact)
It was a beautiful, sunny cool day here and we took Nikko and Sumo for one last walk in the back field. (I can't tell you how many hundreds of walks we have taken back there.) At times we would see sparks of recognition in her, but then she would return to her circling, anxious ways.
I will miss her so. Sumo will miss her so. Good thing we still have each other!
Farewell faithful friend!
Today is another beautiful sunny day. And it is finally cool enough to wear socks! I was so excited to be able to wear my pair of Yarn Pirate Loopy socks I knit. They feel wonderful! It is the best motivation for casting on and finishing the mates to the lonely socks I have.
Still plugging away on my second Monkey sock. It looks rather funny because I still haven't frogged the first one I cast on that was too tight. I decided I would knit this one from the other end of the skein, and if there is enough yarn when I'm done with the sock, I can make a Monkey Fingerless glove with it. (Actually, I'm just doing my own version of 2 socks on 2 circulars!) My goal is to have these socks done by Monday.
Time to go love on Sumo. Trying to give him lots of extra attention.. which he just eats up! He seems to be doing ok. I'll give him hugs from all of you!
Until Next Time...
