Old Girl

So, two years ago today, I had Lola put down.  She was sick and suffering, and I know it was the right thing to do, but I still miss her.

This is the last picture I ever took of her.

Christmas Day, 2012
As it turns out, that was Dad's last Christmas before the stroke - his second to last.

I don't remember much about it.

I miss her.  I miss him.

I would love to get another dog.  Someday.   I check out the Nashville Humane Society page. I accidentally typed Humange Society, which is the kind of thing you'd see in a Family Circus cartoon.

I see that there are some 1 or 2 year old pups that could use some love. 

I know it's not the right time.

I have to hope that much like when the time was right for Lola, she appeared.

I'm still sad, of course - but hopeful.

And I was so lucky to have 14 wonderful, fun, furry years with my old girl.
