I left for work this morning and my dog wasn’t waiting at the gate watching me go and making me feel guilty for leaving her at home by herself.
When I get home from work she won’t be there waiting for me either. Her internal clock was really good at knowing roughly when I’d be getting home especially during the last few years of her life when she couldn’t hear the door to the house open, or the car turn into the driveway.
We had the day off school and work yesterday. I’m glad, as my eyes were so puffy from crying the day before that I’m sure I looked a bit funny.
So many of my friends knew and loved Monty so I think I’ve let everyone know that she’s gone now.
I vacuumed and mopped but I know that I’ll still find bits and pieces of her fur around the place for a while to come – especially outside. And I won’t need to sweep the back room and kitchen quite so often.
I emptied the dog bowls as there’s no point in having water sitting there attracting mosquitos. The bird bath will still get its water and if any dogs come over for a visit their mum or dad will need to put some water out for them.
I put Monty’s bed outside on top of the shed as it took up a lot of room in the back room. It can come back down when we get another dog.
JJ was a lot better yesterday. He hardly cried at all. He still misses his ‘Queen of Love’ though.
