No Dog Real Estate

Sunday was a painful day; this picture was taken then. Hopefully I can write soon.....

I'm up the road from here, babysitting five cats. I'd give anything to be able to walk with Matte along this beach instead....

Dear Matte,
Sweet, gentle, loving, beautiful Miss Mattie Moo Moo, Maggie Mae, Matilda, I miss you!
I love you.
I'm sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.
Always,
Grace

Special thanks to East Jesus artist for tea & sympathy & a paper rose for Matte's grave....
Somebody stole the flowering cactus plants I put in the ground at her head.

Noon
The man who lives in the school bus along tank road said he remembered Matte and me. (We met last year, when he had a puppy who looked like the baby Moo.) He accepted a small bill and said "Yes," he'd put a bottle of water on the plants once a week or so. His favorite beer is Natural Light; I said is bring some cold ones next time I visit.... I'm SO sorry I sold my motorcycle, Matte would be happy I was riding guilt-free--I could go visit her grave on my bike!

Consolation:

She can't possibly hate me more than I hate myself.

FAIL

Seriously, I have utterly mismanaged the care of this wonderful dog. I feel like hell.

Dog cookies for breakfast!

Ouch

It must really hurt.

It could be on my face instead of her "little" toe....

Angel

I really ought help her get to heaven--not this living hell that her body must seem to her....

Your sign he said, pulling up beside us at a red light, casting his eyes toward Mattie's side, back window. It has the text from the front of the nonviolence united vegan shirt:
VEGAN
COMPASSION NON-VIOLENCE
For the PEOPLE
For THE PLANET
FOR THE ANIMALS
"I think it would be a much better world if more people would," he declared. I agreed.

Thank you, universe, for providing us some positive feedback!

Remember to tell somebody you care, if you do. You might be the only person who has the courage to say it aloud today. More importantly, ACT like you care. "Act"-as in "behave," not "pretend," -that you care!

If you care about ANYTHING, you have at least one really good reason to be vegan. Being vegan protects life. Feel free to write if cannot discern how being vegan relates to whatever "it" is about which you care.... It will be a pleasure & privilege to assist you in discerning the interconnectedness, if I can. :)

Not Happy

I wonder how I can ever make her happy again....
