Small News





Luckily I have had posts scheduled for most of this week, but if you are a regular commenter or a blogger whose blog I regularly comment on, you may have noticed my absence. I apologize for not returning your comments, both here and on your own blogs. Please know I will reply just as soon as I am able. The same goes for those of you waiting on email replies.

Late Monday night my beloved dog Snowball fell ill. We stayed by her side until she passed Tuesday afternoon. Snowball was twelve years old and has been with our family for the past ten years. Our loss is immeasurable.




I'm not really sure what else to say. Though I had a Spotlight List post written for Thursday, I had not gotten around to formatting or scheduling it. Instead, on Thursday please visit a site I enjoy very much, Splash of Our Worlds, for their take on a Spotlight List post. 


I'm sorry, I meant to schedule this post for Thursday, but instead I accidentally published it today. Please remember on Thursday then to visit Splash of Our Worlds.

  9. Awe, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Our family is a BIG DOG family! When we lost our beloved Fred in Oct. 2006 the pain cut deep and hurt more than I could put into words. He was 12 years old too (almost 13yrs). A tried and true member of our family for the entire time. We still miss him today!

    So, I guess what I'm saying is... I know what your going through, the ache deep in your heart, I also know words cannot possibly take the hurt away so instead all I have to offer is my understanding.

    Take Care and take time to grieve! :(

  17. I am so very sorry. The pain of losing a pet is just so horrible. They have such short lives. You just wish they could live for as long as you do, you know?

  18. I am so sorry your pet died. Made me recall my own dog who passed away years ago. I know that must be really hard on you, since pets are already a part of our family and when they die, it's as if a real member of our family died. Hope you feel a little better soon.
