GOODBYE, PRECIOUS BOY

Very quickly nipping in today because it feels right to let everyone who's sent good wishes and kind thoughts know: Finn died yesterday. He was at home, with me, and it was as peaceful as I could possibly have hoped. Now I have to somehow get used to life without my precious boy, which is already harder than I could possibly have imagined. I miss him so, so much. I can't imagine writing, or doing much or anything at all, for the next little while.

I'm pretty firmly agnostic, but for right now I'm trying to believe that he's out there somewhere, and that he and my dad are together.

Hug your dogs, Dear Readers, or whatever animals you might hold dear. Give them a kiss on the nose for me, and take a moment remember how lucky you are to have them.

Goodbye, darling.

Zoe, I'm so sorry.

Zoë Marriott said...

Thanks, Ferret. I'm... pretty much wrecked, if I'm honest. I've basically spent the last thirty-six hours crying, and my head is throbbing like a drum, but I can't stop. I feel almost unhinged everytime I remember some little detail like the sound of his collar-tags jingling when his head popped up to check on what I was doing, or how silky the fur on the back of his neck was, or even when I think about washing the blanket he laid on. My poor, beautiful boy. I wasn't ready for him to go.

Thanks, Phoenix and Sarah. All hugs appreciated. And make sure you hug your animals too. You can never do it enough, while you have the chance.

I'm so sorry, Zoe. I know it's not a comfort right now, but he was at home and loved, and some day it'll help you to remember that. We're thinking of you and of Finn.

Thanks, B&JS. I am grateful that it was so peaceful for him, and he was surrounded by love. I just wish it hadn't had to happen for another five years (if ever).
