RIP Pokey

I almost forgot to mention it, mostly because I have been trying to stay focused on tomorrow and not get too depressed about it. We put our dog Pokey down yesterday afternoon. She was old- 13 1/2 years old, and wasn't doing well this past week.

It was very upsetting, even more so for my boyfriend because he had been with her from the beginning. We watched her be put down by the vet. I had never experienced that before- I mean, I have lost other pets in my life, but was never around for any procedure. I was surprised at how easily and peacefully she left us, and I was thankful for that.

Still, today is a sad day and me working on my art stuff has been quite therapeutic for me. Although it is very hard to cheer up my boyfriend obviously. Losing a pet is as devastating as losing a human loved one. Pets are like members of your family. There is not much you can say or do for someone when one loses a pet. You just have to be there for that person, and in time, things will hopefully get better.
