This has been a very difficult week for us. Over the weekend, our beloved dog Reegan took a turn for the worse and we had to make the gut-wrenching decision to put her down. Considering I work from a home office most of the time, I’m used to hearing the pitter-patter of her paws on the kitchen floor as she waits (not so patiently) for her snack, or the sound of her sleeping on the stairs nearby (boy could she get a good snore going!). Today the house is all quiet with only the hum of the washing machine and dryer in the background.
As mentioned in a post last week, Reegan has been a big part of our family for almost 12 years. Like children, we’ve had our growing pains along the way, but the happy and joyful times have always outshone those not-so-pleasant moments. When a pet looks at you with those “puppy dog eyes” and wagging tail, it’s easy to forgive. She is a dog I will never forget.
At times like this it really makes me think about all the blessings I have in my life. I feel so fortunate to have so many amazing readers and clients who make what I do a true delight. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I’m finding it a bit hard to put words to paper, so I think it’s best to take a short break from blogging. I’m still working on some amazing client projects in the meantime that I can’t wait to show you updates on starting next week.
Oh, and if you have an amazing pet you can’t get enough of, be sure to enter Method’s photo contest to raise awareness for the fair treatment of animals. I think Reegan would be so glad if you did!
