thank you all for your emails and notes of concern.
actually, something did happen.
last monday, may 3, we took my little man jake in to have him put to sleep.
anyone who has read this blog over the years knows what jake means to me.
it was the right thing to do. he was a month away from turning 17, but over the last couple years both his sight and hearing were failing, his body was shrinking, he was just...getting old.
i thank God every day for the wonderful gift he gave me in that little dog.
but, of course, i still miss him so much--he was here with me every day, slept next to me every night--and i am lost trying to go through my day without him.
still in shock.
and so the perhapablog will be going on a short hiatus.
until i can think again.
i'm sure you understand.
"We have not to gain his confidence or his friendship: he is born our friend;
while his eyes are still closed, already he believes in us; even before his birth,
he has given himself to man."
