Atticus


We lost our sweet sweet boy, Atticus, this past Tuesday.  Luis was about to shower him off after a swim when he collapsed and was gone.  It was so fast and so completely unexpected.  We are all still in shock and trying to come to terms with a much quieter and more empty life.  
Above is a photo from the day I brought him home.  The picture below is from March.  
He was 9 1/2 years old.  
My heart is broken.

Sadness indeed, I've lost 2 in the past but I still go back for more as I hate the silence in the house and mostly the undemanding love & loyalty....healing will take time and many of us out here feel your pain - would that we could make it easier.
