It’s weird how a day can go from being really good to really bad; all in the span of a few hours.
This afternoon I sold my car. It all happened so quickly. One minute I was handing the keys over to a prospective buyer to go and test drive it and the next he was handing me thousands of dollars in cash.
It’s was a huge relief to have my car sold but the feeling was short-lived.
I got a call this evening from my mom. She had the awful job of telling me that our dogs (my brother’s technically) had gotten out of our backyard. Unfortunately, one (Webb, AKA Webby or Webster) was hit by a car and killed.
My brother is devastated. I have never seen anyone connect so much with an animal.
Luckily, my mom found Rabbit at a local animal shelter and he is fine, at least physically. He just wanders around looking for Webb, it’s so sad.
I am a big animal lover and have never gone a single day in my life without pets. I think they are incredibly fulfilling and so worth having, but I do not think V. and I will have any of our own (but I hesitate to say never). I cannot deal with things like today. I don’t like death, especially where pain and suffering is involved (I sincerely pray Webb had neither).
My heart breaks for my brother and for Rabbit.
Webb will be dearly missed.
