Who teaches you how to let go?
There is no manual for that.

Family, friends, people have been asking me what's up. Silence, not like you.
It's me.
Not really wanting to talk about it.

Sheppie died today.
He, we, struggled for a while best we could. Took courage. Still does. Still holding the leash - he's not there.
I'll miss our walks, our funny way of getting on. He wouldn't be stroked, he wouldn't be touched but was always watching over me in his own special way.

C'est la vie, the lady of the camping site said, tears trickling down her cheeks too.

It is.
And it goes on. New life, new adventures just round the corner.
I'll get there.
So don't worry, I'll be back.

Time, I guess....

Thank you dr. Ella Stekly

I won't forget him trying to get into my bedroom when I visited - he made me feel safe - a very special dog indeed - kop op muffin.
