More sad

One of my friends (John, who pulls together the music jams I sing with sometimes) just lost a pup to cancer.  It’s strange to me because I’ve never “attached” myself to dogs before.  I couldn’t have one, so there was no point in wanting one and so I just mentally distanced myself from the whole species.  Now that I’ve got India, I’ve found my whole puppy universe has blossomed and I pretty much love all dogs.  There are dogs that are more “my type”, for sure, but I’ll be darned if I won’t sit around and watch dog shows these days.

So the news about Minor hit me hard.  He’d always been John’s-dog-who-made-me-sneeze, but somehow in the last year I’ve grown to appreciate what an amazing bond he and John had and what a generous spirit Minor had (allowed all these *strangers* to come in his house every month and make a ruckus!).  His passing was not unexpected, but I don’t think it makes it any easier.

My heart goes out to John, who has lost two dear pup friends in the space of a few short months.

  1. Awww, I’m sorry to hear about John’s pup dying :(. That’s so sad!
    On a brighter note, I’ve totally forgotten you have little India! What a gorgeous, adorable little Pom! I have to say, I never really liked dogs much until I got Kyzmo (my Pom). I’ve learned to appreciate the species, even though I’ve always been a cat person at heart.

    • I can totally believe that — I was completely bawling last night as I wrote to John to tell him how sorry I was.
      (BTW, you know a friend of mine — honestly I should say you know *yet another* friend of mine, but you get my point! ;-)
