Lady & Lily, February 2009
I apologize for how long it has taken me to write again. It's been a little over a month since we lost Lady, and I'm afraid to admit I'm still wallowing. I don't cry everyday or anything like that, but when I see someone walking a big, beautiful black Lab, I can hardly speak. And while our kitties have done an admirable job of trying to amuse and distract me, it's just not the same.
Just about the time Lady died, my studio got torn up while we paint and stain the attic, so I haven't spent a moment in my studio, either... which really makes things feel strange for me. I feel like part of me has been cut off and I almost physically long to be back in the studio. This weekend we will hopefully be putting the finishing touches on the studio and I'll be able to get things in order.
In the photo above, you can see how grey Lady became, and you can also see that the kitty Lily wasn't the slighted bit afraid of Lady... she liked to walk back and forth past Lady's head, and tried really hard to lay down right by Lady's face. So cute.
I hope you are all doing well, and I appreciate ALL the kind wishes and comments re: Lady's death. It has meant the world to me and to my husband... he's not a blogger and just cannot quite understand how it is so many people we've never actually met have been so kind to us. Quite a wonderful community of loving friends, isn't it?!?
Lady's last photo, she couldn't get around very easily, but she could still smile!
