I know, i know….i should be doing my homework and i’ve be seriously slacking on Tumblr in general. So much has happened but sometimes I just get distracted and don’t come to my lil nook as often as I’d like….but today has been such a hard day to get thru. so mom is visting from Sac and 1 of my sisters from L.A. is here as well….well after running around town and having fun, the hubbs and I get home and unwind.
I see later on FB that our families dog, Meklo, had cancer and passed away. Now, it’s been a while that we seen not only the fam, but the family dog, but it was like we were hit by a truck. When I called my sistah to offer support and see what happened, and when they found out, she said only 15 minutes prior. She said it was still too fresh, totally understandable. So I told her we were here for her and that we loved everyone.
I met Meklo, when I met the Sac fam. He was there from Day 1. And even though he wasn’t my dog, he kinda was. He was always so happy to see everyone. When you started scratching his backside, his lil nub for a tail would wag like crazy. Always ready with kisses. When I stayed on visits, whether solo or with the hubbs, he was our alarm clock….wedging open the door…ready with licks.
Such a good dog. And had no shame in being a lap dog. Big thing would always get on someones lap or chill at your feet or chill next to you on the couch or steal your seat when you moved.
He’ll be missed. Sac visits won’t be the same. I know it’s hitting the hubbs harder because he’s a big dog person and not only that, but Meklo was his couch buddy. Sometimes it would be just the 2 of them, chilling in the living room. It’s gonna hit even harder when we finally visit.
Even tho passing happen with furbabies, I would/could never, NOT have one. Unfortunately it’s just a way of life. And altho we would love for them to live forever, that just doesn’t happen. Closet thing I have to furbabies are my families pets…and I love them as if they were my own.
I was so sad when another fam lost their pet cat. He was a cool cat that was my roommate when I visited them in Utah…this was a while back, but when u see pics, u can’t help but be a lil sad. And when I was making a collage to put up, just looking at all the pics and fun times…is sad.
I wanted to do stuff to get my mind off of it, but I don’t. I just want to curl in bed and not deal with things. It’s hitting me harder than I thought just because he wasn’t my dog, but the hubbs says he was family….and that he was. The bestest lap dog. I’m going to miss him very much as well as the many lives he touched.
