It's sad to be so far from home when something tragic happens.
Sometimes it's even worse when that tragic event is the passing of a family pet. Especially one you only got to enjoy for a few years, and whose little life ended far too soon.
This little dog meant so much to my family. She was like another person. And we only had five short years with her (I had four, since I moved to Austin last year).
I have my own dog and cat now, but Tocha will always be my last family pet before I moved out on my own. She was a treasure. The happiest little pup you'd ever meet, so full of love for everyone.
Knowing she's gone is a knife in the gut I can't really handle right now.
Go snuggle your pets, they're gone from this world far too soon.
Guys, I really don't have many positive things to say today, I just know I need to keep myself to my weekly blog posting or I'll fall out of the habit, and I've been sitting on this recipe for a while. So here, enjoy it, it's a good one (though you'll notice it's shockingly similar to a savory recipe I posted recently). Low carb, much flavor, good times.
Such a sad thing to top off one of the worst months I've been through in a long while. It's gotten to the point where I'm just looking at the sky and asking the universe "what are you going to do now?" I'd appreciate any good energy and positive thoughts you can send my way. Hoping upon hoping some good luck turns up soon.
