I am taking a break from the blog for a while. Hopefully not for too long, but for a bit. We lost Shep this past Monday. It was sudden, it was unexpected, and it was heartbreaking. And Erica....? Erica loved that dog. I think I have cried as many tears for her as I have for our loss. Sadness is exhausting business. I am ready for some happier times. It seems like its overdue.
