ON THE BACK BURNER

June 8

Bob and I are at peace with our decision to let Cricket go.. She will always have a special place in the hearts of most people who met her. I have seen grown men giggle when she licked their necks. People who are not animal lovers never pushed her away when she jumped on their laps. We had no door bell because of her. We never needed one. But now , all this will be a wonderful memory for us and it is time to let go and move on. When it was this hard for us to make this decision about a pet, made me humble when I think of people who have to make this same decision for their loved person. Always there are doubts, even though in your heart you know you did the right thing. What if has no place ,once you have come to peace with the decision. I was concerned about Bob, but he made it easy by being in agreement with me. Cricket was in a twilight state and that made it easier for both of us. So, we move on. And yes, I probably will get another dog. But not for awhile. I want to savor the memory of my peek a poopoo.

Sad to hear. We still talk about our Emma (cat) and it's been 5 years.

Pepper's mom;My heart is heavy with your loss. Words of comfort are hard to come by, just remember she had a good life and loved you. Would you like a memorial?

Thank you. Coming so close to Pepper's passings is something we were not prepared for, but we are doing OK. I don't want an memorial. But thanks.
