10 September 2010



Nigel is gone. We still have to travel north to bury him, so I'm sure there are a few tears yet to shed. The void here in the house is already apparent. Even a sleeping pug cannot be ignored.

Kensi hasn't noticed he's missing yet. I think she'll catch on when I next leave the house, as he was her backup for cuddling. She's going to have to turn to Isaac now.

She's not really sad here as her brother was still with us on this day. Pugs are notorious for having eye boogers.

To all of you who have called, emailed, and left messages through various ways expressing your concern and well-wishes to our little family; I thank you so much. It's been a very shitty week to say the least. But the eight and a half years prior well made up for it.

Sorry to hear about Nigel. My first memory of him.....when you brought him to work and he pee'd on the studio office floor when he was a puppy.
Take care.

My deepest condolences. I never know what to say at a time like this. I've been there so many times and feels like it just rips your heart out every time.
It just seems so unfair that their lives are so much shorter than ours?
