Dead quiet

Dead quiet

It’s an odd phrase isn’t it?

There’s really no such thing as truly quiet in a house that has its own set of noises with an old refrigerator, with the wind outside, cars passing however infrequently. The pipes reminding you they’re trying to keep pace with the cold. Even that sort of energetic buzz that’s always there in your head no matter what. The tiny chit of the lighter. Your fingers on the keyboard.

But when you take away the sound of breathing life from the room, the click of nails on wood, the snurfle of an ask,…the soft harrumph of old bones settling onto layers of soft quilts. It is so very very still.

It has been two days now almost to the minute yet I find myself expecting to turn a corner, lean over the side of my bed, hear the soft chuffing as he waits outside the bathroom door just to make sure I’m coming out. He had the saddest eyes right before we decided to let him go, and I was reminded of my mother as she was dying. Her words to me. I was curled up with her in her bed, and she held my face and she said no one should have to die like this and she patted my cheek. Her eyes were clear, and she said “my good girl”.

He was my good boy. Such a good boy, always so gentle with , little dogs. Everyone knew him. They called him the Mayor at the Park. We gave him salmon for lunch. He couldn’t stand but he could eat. Smiles. Jake came to the house. He liked Jake. He licked his hands and face.

And now, my Charlie Bear is running amok. Lol. Oh yes he is. He is running free, fast as the wind, his plumed tail blowing behind him. That’s him over them in the mud. Rolling, getting stinkified. Such a good boy, such a good boy.

the house is dead quiet, with a Charlie hole in the middle.

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

He is a beautiful dog. You have my deepest sympathy, it’s so hard to let them go.

I'm so sorry for your loss... been there done that many times and each time hurts as much if not more than the last.

But sooo worth it.

He's quite handsome! My heart breaks for you. It's so difficult to lose such a loving member of one's family and that's what Charlie is.

So sad. I'm sorry.

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety. Other women cloy
The appetites they feed, but she makes hungry
Where most she satisfies. For vilest things
Become themselves in her, that the holy priests
Bless her when she is riggish. ~~ from Antony & Cleopatra

I am so sorry. That kind of quiet is the worst.

He looks like such a sweet, fun boy. I hope he finds my Max to play with...Max loved rolling in the stinkiest of stinky mud, and was so proud of himself.

Hugs to you.

I know.

I miss my Pups, even now--years later.

Be grateful to have had the choice to let him go. He is grateful you had it in your power to make that choice.

I was with my Pups when he closed his eyes... and I was grateful to make that choice for him.

My heart hurts for you, Oui-Oui.

Words are always inadequate at times of grief like this. May his memory be a source of joy as you move forward.
