One of the Hardest Things in Life is Knowing Your Dog is Dying and Watching Her Do So…

My dog is old.  Very old for her breed.

Starting about a month ago, she started not eating a lot.  Then she refused the dog food she’s been eating for years so I switched.  Now, I have to spoon feed her to get her to eat.  I have to call her out of her bed.  She struggles to get up.  I choke up every time…

Last night, her breathing became labored.  I scoured the internet, looking for hope.

All I found was forebodings.

I realize every passing day is borrowed time with her.  I pet her every chance I get.  I pray over her.  I beseech God for a miracle even though I know it’s a pipe dream.  I wish I could do something to make her better.

She has been with me for almost 1/3 of my life.  She has seen all of my most cherished moments in life:  getting married and having my three beautiful children.  She was there through it all.  I cannot imagine her absence in my life…

The depth of my love for my dog is indescribable.  Her passing will devastate me.  It absolutely will.

I pray, “God, let her be the first thing to greet me in heaven when I arrive.”

It’s the only comfort I get.

And that’s not any at all…

Informal Poll on BSF Genesis Start Dates

Hey all,

It’s that time again–BSF TIME!!!

In the past, I’ve received emails from some who say I am behind their class as I know some start earlier than others and have requested I “catch up”.  I have also received emails from those complaining I’m ahead of them and to stop posting the answers early (apparently these people don’t realize not everyone is on their schedule).

So I’ve decided to do an informal poll on start dates for the various classes around the world so I can be in synch with as many of you as possible and to avoid those nasty emails/comments accusing me of “ruining the BSF experience.”

Most likely, I will start when my class starts UNLESS I hear otherwise from you all.

Please leave a comment if you’d like on this post with your start date and/or positive thoughts on the matter.   I got enough negativity right now in my life without listening to yours.
