seven dog years

Question?   Started as journal of the year 1415. T. = 14, M. = 15. (Portrait image: detail from Sara Saedi, "I just want my dog back.")

    T. and M. were inseparable but always kept a little physical distance. These two are from different planets yet think nothing of sleeping on top of each other.

    anniversaries

    Around this time last year was when we first realized T. was seriously ill. Everyday is some kind of anniversary from now until June 19, when he passed away - or really until September 13, when M. did.


    I sit everyday on the same spot of the couch where T. spent his last moments. I read there, work there, watch TV, often fall asleep. T. and M. used to join me here, just as J. and F. do now. It’s the most ordinary place on earth to me - but it’s also his grave, in a way.

    thus ends 1415

    … the year our old dogs T & M passed away, less than three months apart. I hereby designate this new year 1209, for the (approximate) number of months the new dogs F & J have been on earth respectively. Long live the dogs.
