My beloved Boxer Mugsy died in November. Even though it's been a very busy time around here since we've had the holidays during that time.I also have 4 kids and a husband to keep me going. I don't feel like I'm getting around this grief yet.
Part of it is the fact that I've been a stay at home mom for many years and Mugsy was here for 14 of them. Providing unconditional love and affection to everyone in our family and anyone that came to our house. He was our official greeter, even if someone only stepped outside for a minute, he was thrilled when you came back in. Each day when I go anywhere and then come back I still wait for his happy greeting. It lasts a shorter time but - the expectation and the let down are there daily...
I don't know how long this will continue. I've lost other pets in my lifetime and it was sad, but this guy's death has me in such a state.
Thank for reading my rambling.
