September 18, 1996- February 19, 2007

Annie died this morning just after 9 am. She had a quiet night, was calm in the morning, and went quietly and peacefully with people who loved her and who she loved nearby.

I am not so quiet and peaceful, and there's a damn huge hole in my heart right now.

I know this too will pass, but for now there's a lot of hurting and crying to get through. Soon, perhapd I'll post some memories of her. Until then, I've started to knit some blankets to send to shelter dogs - I can't take care of my munchkin anymore, but at least I can try to take care of some other animals in need.

I just came across your blog. I don't know you and you don't know me... and it's a week since you have posted, but I wanted to say I am sorry for your loss. Losing an animal, a family member and friend, is such a hard, hard time. There's nothing I can say to assuage your feelings, but I'd like you to know there are many people out here in the ether who understand your pain. I still have a hard time talking about the ones I've lost.

Best to you.
