Well hello, it's been a long while. I have gone back and forth about continuing to blog, but at the moment, I think I will keep at it for at least a little longer. The end of April and May is a period of time that I would prefer not to ever relive again, but I feel like I should document what happened so I can look back and have the whole story and not just the good parts.
I last blogged at the beginning of April. On April 23rd, we lost our Cooper baby very unexpectedly. He was fine one morning and then gone the next. He had bloat and his stomach twisted, cutting off all blood flow. To say it was one of the hardest things I've gone through in recent years would be a huge understatement.
This hurts. I miss my boy. He was so much more than a dog. He was my welcoming committee when I'd come home even if it was only for a quick visit or if he'd just seen me a few days before. He was velcro, for whatever reason when I was home, he was a constant weight right next and often right on top of me. He could be a brat. He'd sigh at you, roll his eyes at you and move just far enough out of your reach so you couldn't pet him, but he loved and he loved well.
May was the month of the Urgent Care trips. I was there each of the first three weekends in May. First weekend was because I hit my head at work on a shelf. The second weekend was because I had an ear infection and the third weekend was because I had a possible adverse reaction and/or a possible misprescription of my antibiotic. So definitely not sad to see the end of April and the month of May go.
My bestest and I also finally bit the bullet and started our bookstagram, @bibliophilebesties, we are keeping it somewhat anonymous, we don't use our full names unless someone were to look at our goodreads accounts, but if you'd like to check it out, come give us a follow!
Yesterday, we became a 2-dog household once again, my Lynn-Mom texted me saying that they "did a thing" well, everyone, meet Ruger!
I'm sure I'll be sharing more about Ruger as the weeks, months and years go on. He's a lab and is currently 7 weeks old. Follow along with the hashtag #ourrugerboy
Glad to be back in the blogging saddle!
