Our pup. Born in May 2004 to champion parents, Sparkle “Queen of Denial” is a registered purebred whippet who retired from the show circuit at the ripe age of one and came to live with us. She filled our lives with the joys, trials, and wonder of her all-too-short dog days.

...that life without the patter of four paws around the house is awfully quiet and lonely.

3… 2… 1… Restart.

It’s been two weeks since we lost our pup and it has been a mix of surreal and sad. We’ve been having all these conversations at home about the weird and yet tiny circle of grief that washes over you when a pet dies. She was this critter that lived in our house, so utterly dependent on us and like many dogs this animal that had this narrow swirl of people who she interacted with on anything more than a superficial basis. Every day we get bumped and reminded of the hole she left behind, the gap that remains, the patter of little paws that no longer appear as expected in those quiet moments between the big events of life. Meanwhile the world goes on. It always does. And we stumble along trying to keep a balance between proportion and respect, as we push into our new reality as a dog-less house. It matters a lot to us and a few others, but most everyone else has gotten over it I’m sure. Part of that is with words: I’ve been hiding, not sure what to write as the post that follows the sad message about my dog passing. So, maybe just this: a soft restart. Not moving on, not forgetting, but just back to trudging along.

The puppy we once knew had long left the slowly sauntering animal who plodded along at the end of a slack leash now.

# I bought a GoPro harness for the dog. She tolerates it. But it makes for an awesome dogs-eye perspective for videos. I think we'll be going to the park for a bit this weekend.

Probably thinking a lot about dogs. Inside of a month it's going to be our tenth anniversary of being dog owners.
