Hello Journal & Friends,
We said goodbye to Dusty today.
Last night she changed her sleeping habit. She always spent the night in her own little kitty bed, while Butterfly slept in bed with me. Last night, they switched. For the first time in probably 12 years, Dusty slept all night with me. Another gift.
The sky cried today, and it rained and sleeted all morning, until just before we had to leave for the vet's office this afternoon. Then it cleared up and the sun came out. Another gift.
Dusty was so gentle, sweet and quiet. I think she would smile at her "coffin". Jim found a box that was the perfect size... a Harley-Davidson shoe box! On the side it says: Step into a legend. That's Dusty... a legend. I think she would find it amusing. Even in hard times, there is sometimes that quirky, funny side to life, ya know?
To the left of the box, out by the fence in the backyard that she enjoyed watching, is the place where we are putting her, in her Harley box.
Goodbye, Dust-o-rama, it's been a joy having you own me these last 16 years.
