Did you know a year ago it was raining?

A year ago, it rained for a week (or at least it felt like it did). It continued through the weekend, with the next day of sunshine forecasted for Monday.

How do I know this? Josie proceeded to get worse through the week as the rain continued. On Saturday, October 3rd, she took a turn for the worse. I hoped she would make it until the sunshine came back on Monday. Sadly, she didn’t.

This past week its been raining.




I couldn’t help but notice. Then Saturday rolled around and it felt like a repeat of one year ago. Except my dogs are fine. I just remember the rainy Saturday afternoon last year.

Today is the anniversary of her passing. But it reminded me of the Monday that occurred two days after her death. First, it was a Monday. Second, it was the first day of sunshine in a long while. Third, it was the end of a sprint at work, which means a day full of meetings.

To help me through today, I brought Bear to work (again). I usually avoid bringing him on sprint meeting days. Sometimes customers are there, and it is a full day of back to back meetings.

But today I made an exception.

I needed my pseudo-therapy dog.

  1. *sniffle* We miss Josie. Surely not as much as you do but we miss hearing stories of her and the feeling of hope we had for her “recovery”. She was a strong, beautiful girl. The coincidence of rain and sunshine is oddly comforting. Just a perfect sign that she’s with you. *ear licks*
