I'm very sorry for not being online recently and not for responding to notes, etc.
My dog died and I've been stupidly lost since it. We had him for 16 years and he was basically one of the family.
As some of you know, I lost my mother and father recently in relatively quick succession. The pain of that is still strong, but the dog was my routine through all of that. I'd get up in the morning for him. I'd get exercise because he needed it. I remembered to eat because he needed fed too. I'd talk to people because he took me outside. All that is sort of gone right now.
I loved the little old bastard and I've not been able to function super well without him. I can't particularly bear to talk to people right now either.
I'll be gone for a little while longer at least, but I promise I'll reply to all the unanswered notes, comments, etc eventually and I'll get back to my commission list soon, I promise.
