‘Life is a journey…’

Yesterday, our family dog was put to sleep.  It went as well as could be expected; my daughter didn’t want to be present, so went to a friends house.  That left myself, husband and teenage son.  The dog slipped away peacefully, with no horrible reaction to the drug – thank god.  My son then sobbed in my arms.

I’m now sitting at the kitchen table looking out onto the garden as I type.  Its a beautiful day, the kind of day that usually makes you feel instantly happy.   I feel numb.  The house feels empty.  Signs of our wonderful dog everywhere I  turn.  In fact, i’m pretty sure I’ve missed a poo or two in the garden – that will still need picking up.

Life goes on and eventually time will heal.  You never forget those you once loved, including pets, but you learn to live without them.  It’s a journey.  We all experience love, hate, sadness, happiness, loss and many other emotions during our lifetime; but that’s what makes life so special.
