My Dog Died and I Am Sad
It's been a rough few months.
I didn't get the job. I know I should be happy to be employed at all, but it's still a big disappointment. I worked really hard for it.
Worse, my dog died a week ago yesterday. I miss her SO MUCH. My awesome terrier mutt was my constant companion and confidante for the past nine years. She was with me through divorce, coming out, and more. She had a wonderful life with me, and then with me and my DGF, but it was too short and I'm angry and sad and left with a staggering amount of debt for the treatments we gave her for her rare, aggressive form of liver cancer. She was worth every penny, but that doesn't make the debt go away--it just makes it feel worse in the wake of my canine soulmate's death.
Missing your dog and being depressed about debt and getting rejected for stuff you very much want is weird and lonely and isolating.
Wow, this is not only a depressing blog entry, but a boring one. I'll tell you what might make me feel better. Send me a picture of you (any BW reader, butch, femme, male, female, straight, bi, whatever) and a dog. And I will put all the pictures on the blog. And maybe those pictures will cheer me up.

No photos, but much love. Losing animal companions is so hard.

I am so sorry. It truly is a hurt like no other. It catches you at the worst moments too. I wish there was some way to make it better, but we all know the only way, is not possible. You're not alone Lil buckaroo, you are not alone.

I'm very sorry for your loss. Please take care of yourself.
My heartfelt condolences. I cried like a baby for months after my old dog Lena died. It is a terrible loss, and a lot of grief to deal with (not easily understood by those who don't have dogs).

Here ya go BW! http://imgur.com/hwo31Nx That's me and Kate... and BTW, Kate is old now and can't jump like that anymore. I fear it may be her last summer with us. So we got a puppy! http://imgur.com/GOoMcGA Sorry for the camera eye in the puppy shot. You should totally get a puppy. It only ruins your life for a few months until they are out of their teenage time :)
