Diary of a Happy Dog

Living in grief and new beginnings...

My brother Butchie died in July and I've been missing him so much that I stay in his bed all day long and dream about him. He was a good brother and I know that he loved me but I wasn't always that nice to him and now I'm feeling guilty about all the nips and snarls I gave him over the years.

Our house has been such a sad place for such a long time but things are changing because I have a new sister and she looks and acts a lot like Butchie. In fact, when I first saw her I thought she was Butchie and I ran up and kissed her right in her big mug. Her name is Daisy but she sure doesn't smell like one but she's a lot of fun and she likes me and plays with me (when I let her).

Sometimes Daisy tries to get in Butchie's bed with me and that's a NO NO. That bed is mine now and I'm not letting her in it. It still smells like Butchie and if she gets in it will smell like her and I'm not going to let that happen. It's my only way of still feeling close to the brother that I loved so much. You all understand that ... right?

How long does it take for a heart to mend?
