I painted again this weekend but my heart is sad.
My dear friend Marfi had to say goodbye to her sweet, beloved dog Kane. It is unquestionably the very worst part of sharing your life with a furry friend.
It never gets easy no matter how many times you go through it. Your heart will always break. Mine never healed from losing my beautiful kitties.
It doesn't matter how many years have passed or how many new kitties I have welcomed into my heart again. Each goodbye is unbearable.
These furry angels leave little paw prints on our souls, touching us in a way that even our human kin can't and we are all better for it.
In my heart I truly believe we will be with our beloved pets again. Until then I like to think that they are still around us. Still playing with their favorite ball or curled up in their favorite chair.
I like to think Kane will always be by Marfi's side. She loved him fiercely. And when her heart starts to heal a little and she can look up at the moon and the stars again she'll know that he is there too, looking up at the same moon and stars along with her.
