To Love a Puppy is a Slow Count Down to Sorrow

We are nearing the end of the road.  This is going to break my heart in a million pieces.  I'm paraphrasing the comic, Louis C.K. to say this is a slow count down to sorrow.  It has been a great time and thankfully, I've only looked ahead at the sorrow piece just enough to make me love her even more.

I am so proud of Gracie and she never disappointed me once.  Her only flaw is that she will not live forever.

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan..." "The Once Again Prince", from "Separate Life Times" Irving Townsend
