Today was rough. I called to schedule my best friend Scrappy to be put down. He’s been happy each day, but only for 20 minutes. He’s been in pain and it’s more and more invisible each day. Thursday I have an appointment and it hurts knowing he’s not going to be with me in the physical form anymore. But I know he’ll not be suffering any longer. My heart is heavy. I am grateful for the all the 15 years I got to spend with my sidekick because he made my life so much more colorful and he gave me so much unexpected joy. I am also grateful for not pushing Aidan during spring break for track because we saw a podiatrist today and he could have really messed up his achilles tendon. He has four weeks of no running and has to wear a brace at night. I am grateful his mom paid for half of his new required shoes and that his primary doctor said he’s growing great and looking really good. Most of all I am grateful for all my family and friends for their love and letting me know they’re there for me during my loss of Scrappers. It warmed my heart.
Here’s my gratitude journal entry:
Here’s some pictures of scrappy as a puppy.
His eyes always shined blue in photos or when light hit them. It’s what lured me into, what I call now my constellation, the Plaedias.
Have a rememerable day.✨
