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!

Oh Sheri, I am so sorry about Sydney. I always loved to read your posts about her since we share a love of dogs. I am so very sorry.

We lost Aubrey with no warning on July 26th. Since then we've been escaping the lonely house every weekend. He really was an equal partner in our family and we miss him terribly. My sister told me something that has become my mantra: "You will never get used to it but you will learn to live with it."

I was hoping to log on to LJ (after avoiding it for a while) and find good news. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. I am so sorry for you and Mark.

Re: :(
Oh my!! I'm so sorry to hear about Aubrey as well! :( I do believe that it will get easier with time - Sydney was such a big part of our family and our lives that without her, the house feels so empty. :(

Thank you so much for your sweet comments. Everyone here on LJ (and on MySpace) have been so wonderful about everything. Big HUGS to you!!
