I want to thank all of my blog friends for the kind words and compassion following the devastating loss of Coco to cancer. It is been a little more than a week since her passing and it seems like an eternity. I spent the first weekend in bed crying alternated with drinking large glasses of wine. I pulled myself out of bed on Monday to go back to work but, unlike anything I have ever done, without makeup and contact lenses and in a (gasp!) sweat suit. I wore similar outfits (I should say lack thereof) for the rest of the week. I just didn't give a shit. I picked up Coco's remains in a little box on Monday which further depressed me. I can't believe she is gone. I instinctively look over my shoulder when I back up my desk chair so I don't run into Coco, I look for her in the office, I hear her in the house and my gut tells me to get home to let Coco out or to feed her. This is a huge void.
I am also fortunate to have the very best friends in the world who have been there to support me every step of the way. I love you guys. You know who you are.
Some people want to wait before adopting another dog but I have a huge empty spot in my heart which needs to be filled. Probably the only thing in which I excel is caring for pets. I am ready to find my next bundle of love. There will never be another Coco. She was the best and for that, I will be eternally grateful.
