Missing Rebel

So, Rebel, my furry four footed friend, left us on thanksgiving. I’ve lost a lot of people over the years, but I’ve never experienced missing someone as much as I miss him. Part of it is that, working at home, I was always around him.. and he was one of the most loving friends I’ve ever had. I talked to him often, and almost everywhere we went we went with him.

Everything reminds me of him.. every meal I would share “puppy taxes” with him.. every day we would walk.. even going to the mailbox reminds me that I’m not doing it as part of longwalk.

Part of me wants to go out and get another four footed friend right away to fill the furry hole in my heart, and part of me wants to wait. I know Gayle would probably rather wait a while.

    I’m very sorry. All my sympathies.

    Sometimes I forget how big of a hole he left and sometimes I find reminders. Your friendship with him fascinated/s me and I probably didn’t realize how much his being gone hurt(s) you. Now there are at least the Monsters who have made their own little burrows into our hearts.
