I'm trying to keep my mind occupied.  I hate coming home to an empty house. It's so quiet and lonely. All Millie's things are washed and packed away in the back of my closet.  I had several large reports to write for work so that kept me very busy most of Saturday and all Sunday.  It was one time I didn't mind working on the weekend.  

And around here you can always distract yourself with the never ending chore of shovelling snow.  After work i shoveled aunties steps off and then back here to tackle my driveway before it froze.  

I really appreciate all the supportive comments recently.  Now on to find more distractions while my heart heals.  


  1. I am glad you are keeping busy. I hope you can think of hooking soon.
    I am praying for you.

  2. My thoughts continue to be with you, and I send hugs along! xo

  3. Huge heart healing hugs for you. :)

  4. Yes Kim, try to keep busy. I know it is hard when your heart is broken. When we lost our Roxy in 2008 I remember missing her so much and also missing the routines that you do everyday with your dog. Thinking of you.

  5. Thinking of you and understanding what you're feeling.

  6. Awwww, feel sad for you, no more wagging little body so happy to have you home, nothing like a dogs welcome home. Keeping you in my thoughts, Hugs Francine.

  7. I'm sending some hugs your way....I would send some of our snow your way but it sounds like you have enough...take care.

  8. I'm sending some sunshine and hugs your way and Millie's way in dog heaven.
    I believe that animals have souls as they love and true love never dies. Even Pope Francis believes that animals have souls.
    Millie is at peace, no more suffering for her but your mourning her loss and your pain is very real.
    When I lost my dog Mitzy, she was a toy poodle, I still was expecting her at the door wagging her tail when I came in. It took a long time to get used to it.

    It seems that you got two big loss two winters in a row. So sorry...


  9. Thinking of you today Kim and hoping life will get a little easier for you . I am with Julia two losses and your comfort zone has changed so much these last years.Time does make things easier but that takes a while . Keep busy and know you have lots of people who are praying for you .
    How many dogs had a blog named after them and how many people knew about her life all over the world,I would say Millie had an extraordinary life loved by you and your companion during a difficult time in your Life hugs always cheri
