I can't believe...  
...that tomorrow will have been a week since we lost Sydney. :( Yesterday we received a beautiful sympathy card from our vet, which was really nice - but heartbreaking to read as well. There is a part of us that just feels extremely lucky for all the years we spent with her after she was sick the first time (when she was six) because we really feel like it was extra borrowed time (since no one expected her to pull through back then) - but, of course, there is a part of us that still wishes she could've lived forever... :(

Work helps - as does keeping busy with my websites... And this weekend I'm off to Sacramento to see Bets in 1776 at Music Circus so that will be a nice distraction as well.

And Mark & I were talking the other night... And I know that I said once that I'd never get another dog once Sydney was gone - because my attachment to Sydney was so strong that I couldn't even imagine owning another dog... But my thoughts on that have changed somewhat in light of the recent events. Not that we're ready for a new puppy at the moment, or that what we'd be doing would be replacing Sydney at all, but I think I'm actually finally open to the idea of possibly giving another dog a home with us one day... I think I finally understand that though another dog will never replace Sydney, we do have enough love in our hearts to take in a new dog one day and love him or her the way we loved Sydney - without ever forgetting about her...

Hope all of you have been well. Mark & I appreciate all your kind words and messages - it has certainly helped us get through this past week. Big HUGS to you all!

I think you are absolutely right. You have a lot of love to give and can provide such a good home for a new pet one day - when you're ready it will be a wonderful thing for you, Mark, and your new baby.

Thank you for your sweet comment! Mark & I both agreed that we'll be able to tell when the time is right - and we also both agreed that it probably won't be anytime soon. Thanks for your comment - big HUGS to you!
