It's been a year now, since Charlie had to be put down. I know it was the right decision, and I don't feel guilty for it. But I miss him.
You can cram two big dogs into one bed!
It surprises me a little, how easily even now, right now to be honest, the tears still flow. I had thought I had a better handle on that now...I guess I was wrong.
While I know my heart is ready to love another Ridgie in need, I also have to accept that my old dog Cody, that brindle beast in some of the pics, is not ready. He likely never will be ready. So that dog-shaped hole inside will stay vacant a while longer.
I see pieces of Charles in other dogs sometimes--in the tilt of the head, the cant of the ears, the eyes. Roy said that would happen. He was right.
Roy, thank you for letting us have Charlie, all those years ago. And thank you for all you do for the other unwanted, unloved Ridgebacks and mixed breeds that you take in at TIRR.
