A Sad Anniversary

Today’s Throwback Thursday post is running a little late. It’s almost midnight here in my neck of the woods. I almost didn’t write this post, but it seems wrong to let this day disintegrate without paying tribute to Rudy, our wonderful, faithful, loving companion. Rudy was put to rest two years ago today. I wrote the following haiku the morning after we said goodbye to my very best friend in the world. Through eyes swollen with grief and misery, I wrote this very brief tribute:

I open my eyes

And a bleak, sad day unfolds

I miss you, Rudy

There isn’t a single day that goes by that I don’t think about and miss Rudy. He was my little angel. I miss you, Rudy. I’ll love you always.

Be Happy

  1. So so sorry sweetie, what a gorgeous little doggie! I don’t think you ever really get over the loss of a four-legged friend, I miss my cat Kitty all the time and ye gods, when my beloved boys go…just awful to lose such a treasured member of the family. Sorry honey, sending big hugs n’ love. xxx


  2. Tricia, I also know what it is like to lose your furever friend. I love animals, and have had to say good-bye to many over the years. I have to rescue dachshunds who I love dearly, and it will be hard to day good-bye to them. All we can do is love them daily, and make each day count.
