How you get so used to having someone/something in your life that you just take it for granted? Then when it's gone you realize how much you miss it and often have regrets about things you could've done differently?
Our doggie has been gone a month or so now, and I think it's finally setting in that he's gone. And boy are we missing him. We browsed the pet store on Sunday looking at puppies. I've been checking the pounds website to see what they have. Jason & I have been discussing what type of dog we'd like to get next, we're not agreeing on this yet, I want something a little big (think Lab, Collie, etc.) he wants smaller (think Beagle, Corgi). The one thing we do agree on is that we don't want another little one that has to be kept in the house. And that we think it would be better to wait until spring to get one so we can be outside more, training it more, spending more time with it etc.
Sitting at the dinner table last night Rachel mentioned him and how he used to do some of the silliest things ( he was very silly )and it just made me look at Jason and he had the same reaction. You just don't realize how much a pet affects your family life until they are gone I guess. Oh and did I mention that I found a puppy online that I wouldn't mind finding under my Christmas tree last night....oy, I've got to quit looking!!
Do you have dogs, what kind? Just curious on this one and maybe your answer will help inspire our next dog.
