Hey there.

Abe chewing on an ice bag.

Abe vs Dyson--> I watch this one and I start to cry. I miss the pep in the step and his bark. Kenny will hear this video and he perks up and starts looking around. I know Kenny remembers him and misses him.

I talked to Jay for a while about the idea of getting another dog. I really want one. I feel like I am like my parents. My family never went long inbetween pets. Maybe a few months. Jason says he is not ready for another dog yet. I asked him if it was because of Abe, the finances, or what. He said he just doesn't feel like he is ready and he likes having less responsibility of one dog versus two dogs. I don't see it as more responsibility honestly. Its more love for me to give, an extra scoop of food, we have a crate here that can pop up and be ready immediately.

I saw a website that mentioned all the things I am going through. How some people want to new pet right away while others are scarred over the loss and don't want one yet or ever. It mentioned how I look at Kenny, but all I want is Abe. I felt so horribly guilty for thinking that. Now that I see I am not alone.

I have been looking at the cocker rescue sites and I see some prospects. It just needs to be a more submissive dog b/c Kenny is more dominant. There is a cute little fella in Houston that I am in love with. But Houston is a long way away. 8-9 hours I think.


We are still in the option period of the house. So we are holding onto dear life in hoping to get to the end of the month to close on the house. We have out lot purchased for the new house and close on it in a week. We aren't going to move forward on that obviously until we close at the end of the month.


Our neighbor across the street who is a coworker is sitll not talking to Jay. He is still angry over who is buying our house. Jay flat out told him that if he wants, he can buy the house and then sell it to whomever he likes.

That really hurts. They have worked together for 6-7 years and I feel like he is throwing away our friendship. But whatever, I am not going to lose sleep over it.

Hopefully will have more positive news coming!

    What a weirdo your neighbor is! I mean, seriously!! I'm sorry to hear that it's causing problems for Jay at work, though. Fingers crossed that everything works out great for you with the timing of everything.

    Also, regarding the dogs - give it a little time. If Jay is not ready now, I'm sure he will come around in time. I think when you are both ready, the right dog will be available. Hang in there!

    You have the freedom to sell to whomever you wish. Those neighbors are being selfish and childish. It is their problem. I'm glad you're not losing sleep over it.

    Perhaps when the housing situation settles down Jay will be ready for another dog, Hang in there and have a great day!
