five hundred miles


We Call Her Olive

Life has never felt so bittersweet as it has this week. I have wept with grief and joy. It has been 6 months since we lost Addis and our hearts were broken. This has been a very difficult time for us...for me...as Andrew has not grieved less but has found peace that I have yet to obtain.

I have struggled every day since losing Addis and the ache for my sweetest bear still wakes me up in the middle of the night. The loss has been too great that I didn't think (besides Pierre) I could ever have another dog again...even though I knew that Pierre was lost without his friend.

I knew I couldn't keep Pierre from what brought him so much happiness but I didn't know how to get there for him...then out of another's heartache and loss, someone came into our lives...a providential meeting of now four broken hearts and we opened our home once more to the gift of being guardians of another soul.

We call her Olive.
