Alright y’all…here’s gonna be a bit of a personal and more serious post. It isn’t book related so feel free to skip this if you would like.
So on April 28th my dog, Zeva, passed away. It’s been pretty hard to deal with because she meant the world to me and it’s been very hard knowing she’s gone. I’ll have good days, but some days are really bad. I miss her dearly and it feels like my heart has been broken. It’s crazy that she’s gone.
I had Zeva since she was 4 years old. We rescued her from a kill shelter in Austin. She was going to be put down pretty soon and she was labeled an “aggressive” dog. I had her for 8 years. 8 amazing years. I am so blessed to have been able to love her in a way she deserved. If I had the chance I would do it all again in a heartbeat. No doubt.
I don’t want to get into the details of what happened because it’s a longer story than I want to explain and it’s just not something I want to think about. She passed away at home though surrounded by love. I was working so I wasn’t there when she passed, but I did get to see her before she passed and I’m grateful for that. Very grateful.
She was such a happy dog. Stubborn as can be! The way she got so excited to see me when I came home though…oh man. That would put a smile on my face no matter how bad my day was. She was always such a lap dog too. If I sat on the floor she would come over and sit in my lap! Towards the end she could no longer move her back legs due to a stroke a year and a half ago but to keep the lap dog happy I would sit with her head in my lap just loving on her. Despite her old age that dog would still get in trouble like it was her job. Of course being the mama I never saw it 😉 but from what my sister and mom tell me she would apparently cause messes. Who knows how true that is. 😉
Anyway, she’s in a better place. Free from pain, aging, sadness, fear, etc. I couldn’t have asked for a better gift than her. She was incredible dog. I am so grateful to have had her.
I’ve been having some good days being distracted by work, reading, YouTube, etc. I’ve had bad days too where all I can do is think about her and cry. I’ll be okay though
