Checking out...

That's what I need to do for a while. This morning I lost my girl Lucy. She was Linus' sister and she has also been in my life for 13 years. She also had cancer, just like her brother and today she just couldn't fight it anymore. She came into our lives 13 years ago when we adopted Linus from the pound. She was brought to that horrible place with her brother because someone just couldn't be bothered with them. We took Linus home with us and had tremendous guilt for leaving her there, and two weeks later, she was reunited with her sibling. The plan was to find her a home...I guess she did. She left us 6 weeks to the day from the loss of our boy Linus. My wife and I are both devastated. I am still reeling from the loss of Linus and now this.

Our house seems empty now, and I just don't know how to handle this. I think I need to check out for a bit and try and get my head straight. I've said that you never know the meaning of unconditional love until you have loved an animal. I stand by that, but it makes the loss so much deeper. Goodbye old girl. I love you.
