Today’s Throwback Thursday post is running a little late. It’s almost midnight here in my neck of the woods. I almost didn’t write this post, but it seems wrong to let this day disintegrate without paying tribute to Rudy, our wonderful, faithful, loving companion. Rudy was put to rest two years ago today. I wrote the following haiku the morning after we said goodbye to my very best friend in the world. Through eyes swollen with grief and misery, I wrote this very brief tribute:
I open my eyes
And a bleak, sad day unfolds
I miss you, Rudy
There isn’t a single day that goes by that I don’t think about and miss Rudy. He was my little angel. I miss you, Rudy. I’ll love you always.
