This is my favourite picture of Dram, my dog who passed away last night. I feel as though I have a gaping hole inside of me right now, but looking at this picture helps me remember just what a wonderful, loving dog he was. The picture was taken just after I'd loaded film into the camera, I hadn't adjusted the light settings, I had no flash loaded, but Dram was so keen to see what I was doing that I started snapping away.

I miss him.


Thank you all for your lovely comments, I will answer each and every one of them, right now it hurts too much, but I love you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know I've said it before, but... Take your time, sweetheart. No need to answer anyone right away.

Dram was such a special soul.

Thank you - and thank you for the card.

You are very welcome, sweetheart. Are you okay? Well, are you as okay as you can be at a time like this?

I'm getting there. Coming home to an empty house tonight was tougher than I thought it would be - but at the same time I was expecting it to be tough. I still find myself looking around expecting to see him stretched out in front of the door like a furry draught excluder. I imagine it'll be a long time before I stop expecting to see him around.

The hardest thing yesterday was actually emptying his water and food bowls. It took me four attempts to actually lift them at all.

I will be fine, I know I will be, and I know it's normal to hurt this much right now - but it doesn't stop the pain.

I understand. My J.R. used to shed like crazy and just seeng his hair on things after he was gone would make me burst into tears. I'm sure there's J.R. fur in some of the boxes we haven't unpacked from California and I know I'll cry when I see it.

Dram has always sounded so wonderful...the stories you've told make me feel like I've actually known him...I wish I had.

Yes it's normal to hurt. But no, you're right, knowing that doesn't make it hurt any less, nor will it. Dram was (is) family. You love him. You miss him.
