Pet Loss And Why I'm Not A Halloweener

Last night, I received a very sad message from a friend who had to put down her beautiful Rottweiler. He had cancer and it was the right thing to do, but it is NEVER easy.
 
Then, this morning, I saw that Clemence from Oh the lovely things lost her mew recently.
 
The timing is impeccable because I was already thinking about loss. This time of year hits me pretty hard and I'm so sad to add another soul lost to the list. October and November are my least favorite months because of this sadness. It's not that I don't like Halloween. It's that Halloween has been tinged with darkness since 1995, when I spent it in a rocking chair in a dark living room, listening to my dad cry in the next room. And since then, the sad has piled up. Cats and dogs and people...they just don't seem to last through the season around here.
 
I just want to go home and cuddle my mews. Am I off work yet?

  1. I am so sorry for your friend! My heart goes out to her. Losing a pet is so, so difficult. I am also so sorry for all of your loss. You have every right to lay low, if you need to. Hang in there.
