The Last...
tl;dr a lamentation on the passing of my friend Draco

The Last

There is a last time for everything.
There will be a last breath, a last heartbeat, a last laugh, a last goodbye.
The thing about life is that we seldom know when it will be.
A last stroke between the ears, a last walk, a last tail wag.
A last look.

Knowing doesn’t make it easier, in fact it makes it infinitely harder.
I knew it was the last walk, the last stroke between the ears, the last goodbye.
The last cookies...an entire container of sliced ham.
I knew each of these things were the last and it has broken my heart.

Everywhere I look I feel his absence and I can’t turn back the clock
for one last walk, one last look, one last time.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: The Last...
I am so sorry. I didn't get to say goodbye to Chop and often wish I could have. I would have put my index finger in the little divot on the bridge of his nose between his eyes and called him my little dude one last time. Undecided

The last thing I told Lady was that she had been a good girl...and she had.

Two dog-sized pieces of my heart went missing last year. Sadcryface

Sorry FC. It's always hard. Hugs.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Losing a pet just sucks.

I'm sorry FC.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
