I moved Leaky and Taylor (the two prior dog's) ashes to a new place to be ready for hers.
This is the first time in twenty years I've not had a big dog around in my life. Taylor and Leakey and Jenny all overlapped (with special "guest dogs" Francis and Dag and Jake).
Maybe that seems stupid or callous to other people - how I'm so much more shaken and upset about my dogs dying than I am about most people.
Then again, I've met a lot of people, and I've met a lot of dogs. And I would totally understand if lots of people were more upset about a dog dying than me.
