Path Setter 

I’ve been working on this blog post for several days and the words just won’t come. Perhaps it’s the subject matter or the lack of time. I ruminated on it during  a few walks which is when the words usually fall into place. But alas without my path setter somehow it all seems jumbled. I could try to wax eloquent about loyalty or longevity but instead I will let the pictures tell the story of full hearts, dog walks, swim time and cuddles.

Like “Sadie the Snowman” Breeze lasted a really long time and lived a great life. But in the end our compassion to her was greater than her drive to keep going. So 15 1/2 years after she came into our lives we laid her to rest.

I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. So sorry for the loss of your dear furry family member. Though I don’t have a dog now, I can still remember the loss I felt as a child when our farm dog passed away.

    1. I too remember when our farm dog died when I was little and then my “own dog” that I had as a teenager. It does leave a huge hole in your heart that one fills with wonderful memories.

  2. So very sorry to hear of your loss – but you are right: the last gift we give them is the gift of our compassion. I have been there and it is heart-breaking. The only thing that helps is know (in your head) that you did the right thing. But your heart still hearts.
