I've had several friends recently have their fur babies join you in Heaven. I'm trying to be encouraging and loving to them the way so many have been to me. But it's hard because it rips open the wound of losing you every single time. I re-play our last 24 hours together over and over, no matter how hard I try to not focus on that. It makes it feel like it was just a minute ago that I kissed you.
I try to refocus on knowing you will have more sweet friends to play with up there. Oh how you loved other dogs, every single one even if they didn't seem to love you, with all your little heart. I know you are having the best time playing and being pain free.
But losing you has been the absolute most difficult thing I've ever experienced. My grief seems palpable. And it's embarrassing that I can't just stop the sadness.
This photo though is anything but sad. It was taken so many years ago and it is one of your best candids. This was in our tiny DC apartment on the Hill. When I had company over, I would push the two IKEA coffee tables together and cover them with a nice tablecloth. You loved using the it as your little homey cave. You were such a nester. I smile at the pure cuteness of the moment that I get to keep forever.
I love you baby bunny. You are forever the little love of my life.
