Adrift in a sea of self pity and neo-guilt, I feel as if i"m hanging by a golden thread to the lives of my two dogs. I made a copy of two photos to help those looking know what they look like, but it’s heartwrenching to look at them. I’m a mess.

To those who don’t have animals as living partners, you could never understand this pain. But right now, I envy you.

I think I’ll have to stop for a while to rebuild my soul.
