My dog died today.

We put her down because she has been ill for the past few weeks and the procedure is too painful and too expensive to justify.

I don't know how I feel about it. I saw myself begin to step through the 5 stages of grief. The bartering, denial etc. I don't know the order. I decided to shortcut it and jump straight to acceptance. Hopefully this won't have any dramatic implications on my psyche.

I wish I could show you a picture of my doggy dog but I don't have one.

Before you ask, I am okay.

I take comfort from knowing that it happens to everybody. It is not the end of life but a part of it.

To be honest it still hasn't quite sunk in.
