I’m hoping…

..that this will be the only summer I don’t have canine companionship.  I have already been to Ohio for one wedding, two funerals, (two of my uncles died this winter, and so we did a spreading of their ashes at the cemetery where my grandparents are) and a kick ass family reunion.  That is nothing I could have or would have wanted to do with Gerry feeling the way he did.  I have another vacation planned for July, and so again, I never wanted to leave him, even when he was fully healthy.  Even if it was my awesome neighbors, or the kennel with AC and private runs for him,that I found, I never felt ‘whole’, until I got home and got to see him.  It was a relief, not to have to worry about him being lonely or not understanding where we were.  Yes, I am that insane on the inside.  I hope everyone is out there having fun in the sun, although I don’t wish the crazy heat wave we just went through, on any of you!

About danielle

I am a rescue mom and school teacher. Gerry came to me from Texas, after he "failed" as a hunting dog. He had NOT had an easy life. I was three years divorced, and we saved each other. Last week I learned he has osteosarcoma. Our world feels upside down...while everyone else is right side up.

    Not insane at all!!! We get it! Of course, you are surrounded by dog lovers who may not be considered very sane by the “others”! 😀 So if loving a dog this deeply is nuts, call me whacko nuts!🤣

    You’ve had quite an up amd down summer. Sorry to hear you lost two of your human family members. And also glad you got to have a kickass reunion!😁

    As you already know, Gerry has a dog …or TWO…picked out for you! 😎

    Lots of love

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    And yes, dogs are way to pure and enlightened to be human!

    Sorry for the loss’s you’ve had this summer. I, too, would never leave my dogs for vacation; my poor, underappreciated husband has to take time off work and stay home with them so I can take a week with my Tripawd girlfriends (including the famous benny55 – or Sally – real names

    I do hope Gerry has someone picked out for you to love – Nitro did a great job bringing me the Tiny Devil, to chase away my blues. As always, wishing you peace.

    Sally and Paula,
    I am never going to KNOW ,until i understand how Gerry wants me to create at another “meet and greet” or “Lab Rescue”, or if he wants me to wander into a local shelter and find the dog that eases my heart, I won’t know until it happens, but the entire Tripawds Nation will know, because it will be a victory for GERRY BOY and myself…I will know, I hope. I have not stopped loving him with all my heart and soul.
