Photo of the day

Our beloved dog, Sasha.  After seeming perfectly healthy when I went to bed Monday, yesterday saw cluster seizures I ended up spending hours and hours at the NCSU veterinary hospital yesterday and left after making the gut-wrenching decision to have Sasha euthanized.  That’s why there was little blogging yesterday (and we’ll see how much I get to today).  She was a terrific dog whom we had for far, far too short a time– only 3 1/2 years (she was probably about 6– we don’t know for sure her age as she was a rescue).  Worst part by far?  Explaining it to the kids.   Ugh.

And, this is one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken of a family member period.  “Likes” of the post will be appreciated as a sign of sympathy, I wouldn’t assume that you like that this happened.

    Steve, sorry to read about Sasha. I’ve been under the same circumstances and know it can be a difficult thing to go through, especially for the children.
