You go still... it sounds like Fido's breathing is regular. You shift slightly, ever so gently to peek and see if his eyes are closed. They are closing, and serene. You think about your own comfort (your arm is already falling asleep), but it's so precious that Fido is falling asleep on you that you just lay there, arms full of sleepy, warm, loving dog... and you just relax.

I have a sleeping kitty on my lap right now. ♥

I love the internet!

What would it be like if your boss was a cat? The Adventures of Business Cat

Dog gets cracker stuck on nose, gets confused.

32 service workers who hilariously are not even pretending to try and care anymore. XD

Watch in amazement as somehow, a group of researchers is able to capture and extract sound from a video with the sound turned off, by minutely analyzing tiny waves and oscilations in the video pixels. It's crazy.

And last, brushing up on yoga-related vocabulary in Spanish. Vamos a sentarnos... con los ojos cerrados, respiren profundamente y lentamente, enfocando, visualizando las olas del mar.

My puppy Lucas is such a wonderful doggie. He's quiet and very nervous sometimes, but other times he bounds with energy. When he's energetic, I joke that he must be part kangaroo. We don't know what type of dog breed he is, but for how much he follows his nose I think he's part hound or tracking dog.

This made me cry! And looking at the youtube suggestions for similar videos, this situation makes a lot of other people cry too!

Warning: talk of death and loss.

I love you so much Chester. I loved your soft ears when I first met you, and then I quickly began to love all of you. I love how exuberant you were in life, how you could never just walk when we were outside, but you had to run with your short little legs. I love how you followed me everywhere, even on long walks for miles and trekking in the woods. I love how you used to escape when we'd tie you up in the backyard, and just run without a destination. Moving to the farm was the best thing we did for you, because you loved that freedom of running around in the country and being a dog.

You were in so much pain and you'd suffered so much before you left, and I'm so sorry. I'm glad that you're not in pain. I held you and put my face in your back like I always did when I took comfort in you, and I treasured your warmth because I knew it wouldn't last after the injection.

I didn't tell you I loved you with my mouth, because I couldn't. I know you know I love you. You went to me, looked at me as they brought you into the room. I smelled you, felt you, heard you breathe, loved loved loved you.

And then I watched the liquid in the syringe become less and less as the chemical was injected into your system. It was a sedative overdose, so you fell asleep.

I hope you felt me holding you, and that you weren't too scared even though I knew you probably were. I'd held you countless times before, but I never felt you grow so heavy.

You sighed and your head got heavy on my arm, and I knew. That was your last breath. I couldn't believe how quickly your life was gone. The vet listened to your heartbeat, and your heart had stopped. It happened so quickly.

I miss you so much and I wish you never had to die, because you were my best friend. You were there for me for so much of my life-- probably even half of it. You were there for me when things were hard; you were my constant.

I'm so sorry we had to put you to sleep, but you were old and you had cancer and the surgery to fix you would have made the remainder of your life pretty difficult. The surgery would have been hard on your old body; living afterwards, healing from it, all of that would have been hard for you. I'm so so sorry that you suffered.

You were the best dog ever, my best friend. I'm so lucky to have had you in my life. I'm so glad you were at the pound that one day my mom went there looking for a dog. That day she found my best friend.

You were old, and I knew your time was coming. I treasured every moment I had with you. I loved seeing you run around youthfully like you used to. I valued every time we cuddled and every time you looked at me.

You looked at me today, for the last time. You looked up at me with your big brown eyes wondering what was going on and why we were in that scary place. I'm sorry you were scared. I hope me being there with you made it better. I hope I felt like home, because you were MY home, you were home to me.

I love you so much. It's going to be difficult and painful to live without you. I don't even know what to do with your food bowl, and your dog hair is still all over the place.

I'm going to miss your warmth and security when I'm sleeping, the way your body feels curled up against mine. I'm going to miss you so much, I love you so much and I love you and I wish you were here. I love you my sweet Chester. I will always love you and miss you.

My puppy made it through surgery today~ It was to remove a large lump on the inside of his leg. They shaved his leg, intubated him, and gave him morphine and anesthesia. It was a challenging procedure, they said. But he's ok. HE MADE IT!

He's home and sleeping. The first thing he did was pee everywhere (a lot of pee...a LOT of it so I'd have peed everywhere too with that much pee in me). And then he demanded food, which I gave. And now he's been sleeping for hours. My baby~ He even took his meds like a good boy! Good thing he eats anything that's covered with peanut butter!

Caring for his sutures and wound is pretty darn gross though. But he's my baby and he's worth it. I'm so glad the lump is gone. They're going to analyze the lump material in the labs, and I hope it's not cancerous. If it is, then I'm glad I have some time left with my baby. He's gonna get better from this surgery and we can live like we always did. :)

The past two days have been so frustrating and sad that I wanna throw up my hands and laugh because it's funny at this point. Well, in some ways. Black Friday adventures and news about the health of my dog are told and discussed.

Many epic faces. Imagine having that much loose skin. O_O

The latest post at tk_daily led me to search for a video with a squeaky sound effect in it. I played it for my dogs, and they didn't react. I was expecting something. In their defense, I woke them up. Chester reacted a little bit. Nothing from Lucas.

Bill is so beautiful. When the picture got clear of Bill on that motorbike, I screamed, "That's so BEAUTIFUL!" and my brother came to see what was wrong with me. Nothing was wrong with me, only that Bill is so beautiful and inspires energetic reactions in me. ...And I noticed how many weird lip things Bill does. He rolls his lips inside his mouth so much.
