Life still sucks...but it does get better!

Entry #11

My dogs saved my life. Plain and simple.


I have no doubt that Ken didn't take my life as well that horrible day, because he knew I would take care of our pack.  He knew that no matter what else may happen our pups would be loved and happy.  And they are. 


Sophie, Cowboy, and Georgia are with me and they continue to save my life.  Without having to care for them, there would be no reason to get out of bed each day.  They make me laugh, offer comfort, and love me unconditionally.  No matter what kind of day I'm having, they are right beside me helping me through.


Many people have suggested rehoming my pups to make my life easier.  Easier...maybe.  Lonelier...absolutely.  With having to move and downsize, I had to rehome two of my precious babes and it just about killed me.  What brings me joy is knowing that Mellow and Jess are in loving homes with families who started as dog training clients and fast became friends.  They both have canine big brothers to romp and play with and have bonded beautifully with their new humans.  And the best part is that I can see them whenever I want! 


When the world around me is going crazy and I'm losing faith in humanity, I just have to take one look at my trio to know that good still exists.  What a beautiful world it would be if people had hearts like dogs.


My dogs save my life. Plain and simple.

It will be 13 years ago on 10/4 when my boyfriend chose suicide as a way out too. Thank you for sharing! ~ peace, love & light.

My thoughts are with you. I had two nephews commit suicide. Bryant was 32 and Keith was 30. Why why why!!???

Ken's choice was not in anyway your fault. My step father of 33 years decided to hang himself at the age of 91. Heartbreaking, the grief is different- as stated
