Saying Goodbye Sucks

Grieving is a weird experience for me. I’ve never been one to lose it over loss, at least right away. Right now my dog of 8 years is laying at home, unable to move, barely hanging on to life. It won’t hit me until she’s gone, probably. That could be any day now. It could be a year from now. I choose to be optimistic. But, she is 13 years old and that’s about the upper limit for larger dogs like her.
