If people think I don't take this place seriously, I do. I would have posted this in the personal pictures thread, but some might not appreciate it.



However, my awesome chest art needed to be documented.

When you get a call from a loved one, late at night, you already know it’s not to ask for your banana bread recipe. My father called last night to tell me that his mother passed away. Granny.

We all deal with these losses and they are truly sad. Calling in the sympathy parade was not why I brought this up. It was to tell you about her dog, Tiny. A little chihuahua mutt that was her companion.

At the end of Granny’s time, she had a bacterial infection that led to a hospital stay, followed by a stay in a care facility. Tiny set off to look for her. He went up the road to my cousin’s home, where he surely thought she was.

When he did not find her there, he went home. Crawled behind the couch and passed away himself. Such a bond, he knew that she would never leave him. Only when he knew she was gone, his heart was broken and he let go himself.

In trying to find a bright spot in all this sorrow, this little dog’s connection to my grandmother, truly warms my heart.



Awwwwww, requiescat in pace Tiny
Sorry about your granma too dd, hopefully they'll be resting in peace together - my thoughts are with you and yours.

That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again

Inspiringly heartbreaking.

Man, I'm sorry to hear about Granny. =\ I hope she was at peace in the end. To know the pup searched for her and then let go himself when he realized, man.... that's the stuff of poetry and tear-inducing novels. Terribly sweet, that. I'm glad that you were able to find a bit of glimmer there through the dark and a unique story to mark this time with an odd uplift when you need it down the road.

Thanks for sharing.
