rough day // rip brandy


“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life. “ - (Krishnamurti, Indian Philosopher)

Today was a pretty rough day. It started out well enough but slowly got harder. I was in one of those funks. I got home around noon and was to be alone with the pup for the rest of the day and most of the night. I just wasnt feeling up to that. I love my alone time, really love it, but today I wanted to be with someone else. I made plans to go to yoga and then take Dex to the park. But later in the afternoon I got a call from my brother and he was crying so hard he could barely speak. He told me they had to put our family dog down. Brandy was one of our dogs growing up and we had her for 13 years. Our other dog past a year and a half ago so I know she is up in doggie heaven with Katie. Its just so hard. She was my brothers best friend and a part of our family. Ive been crying off and on all night just remember happy times. I just wish I could be home with my family tonight. I cant imagine going home in two weeks for my birthday and not having her be there wagging her tail at the door with one of her squeaky toys in her mouth waiting to say hi. 
I love you Brandy girl. 
And I'll miss you forever.


  1. Oh Lacey, I'm sorry. My family lost our little guy about two weeks ago now (he was three years old). Losing what I'd call another family member feels awful. I bet Brandy had a happy, wonderful life and she must be prancing around in doggy heaven :)


  2. i am so sorry. i lost my little tea cup poodle last year, and it was one of the hardest things i've been through.

    i am so sorry, again.

  3. Oh Lacey - I'm so sorry for your loss!

  4. Aww so sorry. :( all dogs go to heaven.

  5. So sorry about your loss hun. That's so tough...

  6. I'm so sorry. There's something just gut-wrenching about losing a loved dog. The best you can do is think about the wonderful life you all gave her.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
