It's the last day of April and I'm glad to see April go. See you, April 2011. Glad you won't be coming 'round again.

I had high hopes for April. Jon would go on Easter Break and then, a couple weeks later, I would go on Easter Break. We would celebrate Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter. The weather should start becoming less wintery and more spring-like. Maybe we would get outside for a hike or a day-trip, or visit friends at the beach, or spend some extra time with the nephews.

But on April 2nd, we were blindsided: Beasley died.

And that pretty much finished April for me.

Sure, we went on Easter Breaks but we were both so lonely during our respective times off. Yes, we celebrated Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter but we were still sad. Got to spend time with the nephews, too, but even those sweet little boys couldn't fill the hole in our hearts.

We just really, really, really miss our dog.

Love you, Mr. B. Thanks for twelve great years. See you in heaven.


  1. oh no. I'm so sorry to read this. Losing a pet is so heartbreaking. From personal experience, time will heal your sadness but it will never fully go away. I miss my old bear almost everday and wish she was here to see my baby boy. But I know she's in heaven with a million tennis balls and milk bones. I know Mr B is up there with her running in a open field on and endless sunny day.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. There is no other love like the love from a dog, there is no other friendship like that of a dog, and there is nothing to take their place. My guy left me on St. Patrick's Day. I was glad to leave March behind. Dominick

  3. oh that is heartbreaking. i'm so sorry. i lost my sweet lucy dog last august and there isn't a day that goes by when i don't think of her. hugs to you!

  4. I found you by a comment on Laura Kurz' blog. We lost our Kodak in April, too. I'm hoping it will not hurt so much, sometime soon. I keep telling the kids to feed the dogs, even though there is only one. Take comfort in knowing that you are not alone.
