Thank you, everyone who respected my space this weekend. It meant a lot -- more than expressions of sympathy or comfort...which would have made me cry and I really, really HATE doing that in public. |
Percy seems to be doing far better than I expected. We originally got Willow because Percy couldn't be left alone -- well, he COULD, but it meant chewed up furniture and doorknobs and while my shins and hips were liking the "no more corners on any of the furniture" thing, I was starting to run out of wood.
But, clearly he's mellowed in his dotage because the cats seem to be enough to keep him company. We're aiming to become a one-dog family for a while -- or eventually...since Percy's reaching his expiration date as well, I'm undecided what's the best thing to do -- wait until he goes, although I fear the empty house, although am already calculating the savings in poop bags and dog food, or bring one in before he goes -- it is easier to "break in" a new grey when you've already got one. But we won't even think about it until after MDRF is over.
