Taking a short leave

When I started this blog, I told myself that I would keep it as professional as possible.  That’s why I’ve kept it devoid of any personal information.  But since my personal life took a tragic turn today, I need to tell you:

I probably won’t be posting for a few days.

This afternoon, my beautiful Vizsla, Starry Night Kairey my Joy (we called her “Kairey”) escaped  our house, our yard, and was struck and killed by a firetruck on its way to try to save the life of a 6-year old girl who had been struck by a car.   Neither survived.

I’m heartbroken, and can barely see for the tears right now.It’ll be all I can do to finish the book in time,.

For those following the blog, I’m sorry.  Please give me time, I hope I can start again in a few days.  But right now, my heart is with the little soul who lies under that freshly turned earth behind our barn.

RIP Kairey  (January 2, 2004-July 3, 2010)

    I am so very sorry. I am a dog lover of two dogs who frequently run away and I fear this happening all the time. I know how you must want your dog in your arms again. Maybe that little girl needed the comfort of a good dog with her in spirit and Kairey answered the call. Your posting made me cry and I feel your sadness as well as for the family of that child. You don’t need to feel bad about taking a break from this project.
