This Day One Year Ago Really Sucked

On this day one year ago I said goodbye to Patches and Buddy for what I thought was the last time. Our two-week-long stint as their dog sitters had ended and Bevan was set to bring them back to their owner that afternoon. On my way out the door that morning while swept up in an unholy shitstorm of sadness I snapped a picture of the two of them snuggled together in an armchair in our living room so I'd have something to remember them by.

Little did I know as I headed to work that day with tears in my eyes that two weeks later these beautiful little babes would come to live with us full-time, forever changing the way I look at dirt and fur and noise and poop and sharing food and sharing a bed and slobber and, well, love too, I guess.
