Coffee shop cogitations part 6.022E23 @ 09:27 pm

Current Mood: sad

Man I am a dork. And I"m back in the coffee shop, and yet again, am writing, a babble of conversation, classical music, and the odd sound of the milk frother to offer up a canvas for my writings.

First I'll write about the more pressing things, then I'll update on my day.

My mom called me while I was out to tell me that yesterday, they ahd to put our big dog, Boomer, to sleep. Boomer has always been a very loud and vocal dog, and definitely very protective, but he was always so very loyal. He protected who was most important to him, our family, and that's the ultimate of dog loyality. Apparently, last week, he fell ill for no apparent reason. They took him to the vet, and the vet told them that according to the blood tests, it looked as if he'd gotten into some poison. They put him in the dog hospital, and he never recovered. THe same thing happened to the people next door to us, their dog got into some poison as well. We theorize that someone actually poisoned Boomer. My dad's crushed because Boomer was "his boy".

Why? Why would someone do this to such a friendly dog, one who, when I accidentally hit with a car door, still forgave me for it even though he was bleeding. He, who a few months ago, when mom wasn't looking, jumped up into my bed with me and licked my face. I guess I feel more emotional about this dog dying than when our other dog, Mini, diedm because MIni had such a long life, she died when she was like 14. Boomer was only like 4. Even Gabby the cat is even nerotic and missing him because Gabby always slept with Boomer every night. I JUST DON'T GET IT!

Besides that, things seemed to go pretty well. I just got back from going shoe shopping (which I've needed to do for a while) and Wal Mart (which I always can do). My shoes are reasonably comfortable though I think they need to be broken in somewhat.

I'm not sure what else to write. I just hope that Boomer went to heaven because he did nothing wrong to anyone to deserve such an untimely and horrible death. I just want to hug Fiona really hard now and tell her I appreciate everything she does for me. I really wish dogs could be immortal. :(

Oh wow. I am SO sorry to hear that.

I'm a huge dog person and I really HATE that this happened. Very tragic.

Hugs to you, I'm so sorry.

Very sorry

I'm very sorry to hear about Boomer. If it makes you feel better I believe anyone that hurts an animal goes to a very special place when they die. Its not a very nice place either.

I'll miss Boomer. I thought he was a lot older than 4.

:( People suck. Ever here the Rainbow Bridge poem?
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I believe every word of it

When I was little someone antifreeze poisoned our St. Bernard. He died from congestive heart failure because of it about 3 years later. It's so sad.

Awww! I sympathize with you. And, yeah, I don't pretend to understand why people commit such senseless acts. The only thing I can say is that it seems that we all have a kind of "mean streak" about us, whether, for example, we tease someone because they are somehow different from us or commit a brutal murder. The best we can do is to fight against that "mean streak" and to live our lives lovingly and graciously. OK, so this is already getting depressing and I'm sure you don't really want to be depressed right now. SO, chin up! I know that this sounds like very "generic" advice and that it is difficult to even consider at this point, but, remember the good times. So sorry about this... Hope I haven't depressed you too much. Pax tecum! (Peace [be] with you!)

That sucks. That sort of shit always happens in the country for sure, weird people creep around and poison people's pets, livestock, etc. Sorry to hear about Boomer. He didn't even Boomer-ang me last time I was there :(

Noel will be down for the count for a little while

I'm not sure how many people read these comments, but it's the only way I could inform anyone. Noel just broke his left femer, when he slipped and fell in the Union while I was with him. He's at the hospital here in Fayetteville right now, but he wants to be shipped out to Little Rock. I just thought I would tell everyone.
