Thank you to everyone who sent me a note about our beloved Bernese Mountain dog, Owen who passed over the Rainbow Bridge last week. Last week was really tough. We would have moments of feeling okay and then something as mundane as unloading the dishwasher would set off the tears. It just takes time.
So when I got a message Friday afternoon from the veterinary office that Owen’s ashes were ready to be picked up, I had to replay the message because I started to sob. My first thought was to wait until Monday. But, I didn’t want Owen to “sit” in the office over the weekend (okay, I know at this point it sounds like I have crossed over to the Crazy Bridge).
So, I drove over and grabbed “him” on my way to my boys’ tennis tournament in Denver. And, we all had a good, much needed laugh when I told the boys I had food for them in the car, “next to Owen.” You should have seen their faces when I suggested I bring Owen into the tournament to watch them play!
I think we are starting to heal! Thank you again!
