i’ve shared the above photo many times. it’s one that i have in a 16×20 frame in my home, captured a few years back when she was still feelin’ her oats. it gives me peace. she was my best friend and today i miss her in a way that is visceral.
my dog has been dead for two weeks and i cannot spread her ashes. they sit in a small tin on the table next to her pawprint and a terrarium. i am not ready.
today i looked at old photos and found this, the front version of the picture i just showed you. she made me the happiest girl, just her sweetness and silliness.
may you all have the blessing of having had (or have) a good dog like daisy.
