My Life Head On

I Feel Him

| December 27, 2015

Sometimes I hear him behind me, following me from one room to another. I find myself listening for his paws padding across the floor. I can feel his eyes watching me so intently. At night I have felt him, his muzzle resting on my leg asking to be let into bed as he did so […]

One Tiny Scar

| November 19, 2015

Making it through the day has been the on going struggle. Outwardly I seem strong and put together. There are moments I truly am. Mostly though I’m a mess. I can’t bring myself to put away any of how things. I can’t bring myself to change my world from the way it was when he […]

One Step Forward, 2 Steps Back

| October 18, 2015

Last night was full of nightmares again. Another night of tears. Another night of emptiness giving way to another day without my faithful protector. I dragged myself out of bed early to go to an all day meeting. As if Sunday meeting wasn’t horrible enough, it just had to be all day as well. As […]

Finally a Good Night

| October 17, 2015

I finally was able to sleep without the nightmares. It was only 3 hours, but it was 3 hours of no nightmares. 3 hours of peace.

Sleep is the Enemy

| October 15, 2015

Sleep is such a double edged sword. I am so exhausted, so run down. Yet sleep refuses to come. For hours on end I am restless. For days now I haven’t gotten more than an hour or two of sleep. I drag through my days unable to look at people, unable to speak. At work […]

I really don’t know what I would do without the amazing people in my life. Today I did one of the hardest things and they were there. The outpouring of love they have sent since last night has just been so comforting. I had to move Renegade from the ER to my hospital today. One […]

I had to bring Renegade into work with me today. He has had a cough and its starting to concern me. He is still my happy bouncy boy, but the cough has been waking him up at night. We ran some blood work and took some x-rays. We are worried about a few lesions in […]

We had a great time today! We had many wonderful dogs come visit the booth I was running. We trimmed toenails, painted nails, made pretty bows, and did temporary glitter and blo pen decorations on our four legged visitors. everyone was so well behaved and we had a great time. I had several friends help […]

Getting ready

| June 6, 2012

Mr. Renegade has been my guinea pig for Saturday’s benefit event. I have been trying to come up with ideas on neat things to do for dark haired dogs and dogs with coarser coats. Both of which describe Renegade. He doesn’t have long hair so I can’t really throw a bow in it either.  I […]

Win or Lose

I was just barely able to drag Joey off the computer long enough to join us at the race track today. Adam’s family was headed out to Arlington to watch […]
