Today I grieve...


One of the saddest images I've ever taken.
The mobile vet is here...and the shutter has fallen silent.

Today I can completely empathize. I am currently deployed with the USAF and shortly after leaving, our two year German Shepherd Dog was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. The vet said the worst she had ever seen. Several thousand dollars later we were trying to keep him happy, comfortable and also alive until I could get home in May. Connie woke up on a Monday morning the first week in April to find that he had fallen asleep next to our bed and never woke up. When I left I never thought it would be the last time I would seem him. The follow on bad news for my wife is she had to put one of our horses down two days later. It has been a tough time being away. Our pets are family to us so I grieve along with you today.
