Last weekend we said goodbye to Emmitt. A couple of friends came with us out to Fort Funston, one of Emmitt’s favorite places, where we laid his ashes to rest.
We got really lucky with the weather. It was a beautiful, sunny, clear day… exactly the kind of day we would have normally taken Emmitt out there for.
It was difficult saying goodbye, but we had shed most of our tears prior to going out to Fort Funston. I tried to keep the mood as light as possible. We finished off the day by going to The Ramp, a local outdoor patio bar, for beers.
I haven’t been blogging as much since Emmitt passed away. I just haven’t felt as motivated as I used to. We’ll be doing some traveling over Christmas and New Years, and I’m hoping to get some rest… and recharge my batteries.

We are all very sad and sorry for the loss of your dog. I remember what it was like when we had to put down my 11 yr old golden retriever for a tumor the size of a football against her lungs. It was a terrible time. But time will help you get over it and get moving again. I love your blog and have missed your writing but I understand how it is. I hope you feel like yourself soon.
I am so very, very sorry for your loss.
All the best to you and your family.
