September 4: Day Six
More quiet tears this morning as I reply to (probably) the last of the condolence messages on FB, messenger and email. It’s so quiet in the house now… I re-read my journal entries again from January 2005 when (my previous chocolate lab) died – it took me about a week to adjust then. As I recall, it wasn’t as painful as losing Jackson has been, but that doesn’t surprise me. I knew this was going to be hard. I think Jackson was my once-in-a-lifetime companion. We may get another dog – I don’t know at this point, but I don’t ever expect to find another one like him.
It just started raining. Fits my mood perfectly. I miss my old dog 😢.
