“A true friend leaves paw prints in your heart.”

My sixteen year old dachshund Hudson died today. It is so hard to write this because I have to write while the tears are falling. He was an amazing friend and companion to our entire family. He was there with my boys as they grew into men. I don’t know how to say good-bye.

Today it feels like there is rock bottom then a big pile of crap, and then me. It’s time to pull out that resiliency tool-kit ... but what tool do I reach for? I guess I’ll start with deep breathing. I have to get control of my breath and my body. Next, I need to pull out the tool, stop ruminating. Seriously, stop, stop, STOP, STOP!
