I just wanted to say thank you to everybody for posting your thoughts on Petey. We’ve truly loved reading your memories and stories of Petey and have felt much comfort from your sharing of our sorrow.
It’s been a little bit strange the last week, because Holly had told some friends to call us if they ever needed somebody to watch their weiner-dog, Taylor. We all thought it would be great to get Taylor together with Petey sometime, but of course, we missed out on that.
So, we’ve had Taylor since last wednesday and he went home last night. Of course, he won’t ever be Petey, but having the little guy around took the edge off the ache and made the house feel a little less lonely. (It was also weird to get used to a dog that you didn’t have to worry about him throwing up, and you didn’t have to yell at him to stop licking all the time…)
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for all your kind words and wonderful stories. Please don’t let this post stop you from writing more if you have them. We’d love to hear them if you think of any.
