June 17, 2013
Today is a day that was so very sad
we despaired
and then ended up teary;
for our dear Dookie left
in this place that we shared
too bad!
Oh, so dull, dank and dreary!

He took his last labored breaths
as we watched, horrified.

We ended up leaving his body in the living room for most of the day, shooing a lone fly from his mouth toward dusk.

Chilled to the bone with god-awful sensations, I ambled over to consult with a friend who had cremated his elderly dog some years back.

”Build a wood ‘rick’,” he said, nonplussed.
