Day 313

Judas Priest- Screaming For Vengeance

Just when I said I was going to start blogging regularly again, tragedy struck. My dog for the last 12 years passed away last Saturday. She wasn't only "just" my dog, but also really was my best friend. During those 12 years, I fell to the lowest of lows, but the one constant of hope, joy and optimism was her. There really were days where I didn't know how I would go on without her in my life. I owe her so much. I can only hope that I made her as happy as she made me.

Jessica and I knew this day was coming for quite some time and we agreed to get a new dog very shortly after she passed. After spending one of the worst weeks of my life grieving over her, we adopted a new dog yesterday. She's a chihuahua/terrier mix and only 10 months old. We already love her and are happy with our decision, but we still miss KW terribly and I personally know I always will. No dog will ever mean as much to me as her. Sorry, Choji! Although these last two days with Choji have been a pleasant distraction, I still find myself constantly talking and thinking about KW. Choji has a lot to live up to.

Yesterday before picking up Choji at the shelter, I laid down and listened to this album. For me, it was the Priest album. My brother owned it when I was 10 or so, and we played it all the time. Even though I only own two Priest records, there was no doubt that this had to be one of them.

Sorry for not talking more about this album. But writing about my dog feels more important to write about now.
