More Sad News

October is really testing me. I've noted it as my favorite month several different times, but October, 2007, will go down in history as a rough one.


Please, PLEASE pop over to Michelle's blog right away and wish her whole family well. They've known since before the move that Chewy was terminally ill, but the end still came suddenly. Keep Murphy (their other dog) in your prayers too; like poor Mugsy, the older "sibling" is left behind, so we have to hope and pray that they live unreasonably long, healthy lives, so their humans don't face such extreme grief too soon again. (Selfish, I know.)
I'm so sorry I missed meeting you, Chewy. You were a beautiful, well-loved girl, who loved well in return.
And October? I won't be sorry to see you go this year. Bring on November, the beach and the celebration of thanks. I do have so much for which to be thankful, and hopefully, it will be easier to see those blessings with the black shadow of October behind us.

I hadn't realized they knew she was terminally ill... I tried to read back on Michelle's blog but couldn't find anything.
So sad.....

Done. You are so right about October being a lousy month. I'm going to go hug Milo. Give Mugsy a smooch for us.

How sad :(

I really hope November is better for everyone! Enjoy your time at the beach.

I think you're right. It started on Sept 29th when Zack died, and aside from the Sox, it has been pretty crappy...

I'm with you - BRING ON NOVEMBER!

Yes I do hope November is better and helps us forget how better October was.
