the hardest part...

is knowing that they'll be gone in a certain number of days...its like some sick sort of countdown, except usually you look forward to the day you're counting down to....ya, not so much this one.

The past few days has been a time of very conflicted emotions....sad that he's leaving, but excited to see where he goes...worried about what's going to happen after he leaves but knowing its the right time for him to go.

The worst part is that in knowing that you have a limited time left, you want to remember every moment, memorize their scent, the pattern their fur swirls around in, but knowing that in time the memories will fade and the stupid camera won't even capture what you want it to.

But the very best part is knowing that soon you will (hopefully) be attending a grad to see your little baby all grown up and doing the job he was born to do..

OH MY GOSH! The paragraph that ends "but knowing that in time the memories will fade and the stupid camera won't even caputre what you want it to..." Oh man. Hit a soft spot. Before Vienna went in, I took millions of pictures. But now it does nothing. And sadly, some memories of her has faded. I can't remember everything about her. It makes me SOO sad. I always thought I would never move on from that dog. But, her life is PERFECT, as will be Petey's.

Great Post Nat.

You've said so clearly exactly how most, if not all, of us feel those final days before recall.

Hang in there.
