It feels like I wrote this post just yesterday but it was back in April here. I said good-bye to Charlotte suddenly this past week when her happy self greeted us at the door when Norah and I got home from school drop off. She went outside and never returned. Instead, she’d laid down quietly on the porch in the sun and breathed her last breath.
How lucky I am having something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

Charlotte “Hoopie”, gone but never forgotten. November 2008 – February 26, 2019
She was one of those amazing dogs who was always just there. And for that, we treasured her. While I am completely heartbroken, I am thankful for her peaceful leaving. I am glad we were home and able to tend her immediately. And I am thankful she wasn’t alone.
The loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind.
