Today is my first dog's birthday. He would have been 18 today. Instead, he passed when he was 8 years old. He was my doggie-son. I'll never forget him. He was a great dog. He deserved even more than I could give him. He was very loyal, loving, trusting - just always by my side - ALWAYS. I know he loved me. I still love him today; he lives in my memories. I miss him so much. When my grandmother was alive, she once said this while observing him and I: "he worships the ground you walk on". That's how close he was to me; that's how loving he was. He was so smart too.
I'm getting sad. Lump in throat.
I got a book in the mail today that I had put together and ordered. Out of my 20 mini-books on the series of books I'm currently writing, I picked my most favorite poems - two from each book - and compiled it into one book - the title, then part "IV.V", or 4.5. It was an anthology. It turned out to be 200+ pages. I really enjoy putting books together. It gets the stress out in a creative way.
