#SOL18 Day 1
I lost my girl almost two weeks ago. We had 14 wonderful years with her and though I knew the time was drawing near my heart wasn’t ready. There are certain times of the day that are harder than others. Sipping my morning coffee by the fire is lonely now. Going to bed and not needing to lock the back door and throw a treat on the floor is a nightly reminder that she’s gone. Tonight I came home to a completely empty house and as I riffled through the mail I found a sympathy card from our vet. The handwritten notes from the staff touched my heart but it was also a reminder that I no longer had those big brown eyes looking up at me. I know in time it will get easier but right now it’s still hard. Our pets touch our lives and become a part of our family. Zoe was my girlfriend in our family of men.
