Laborious

Labor day was hard.

It didn’t start out that way, though.  It started out as a beautiful summer
day.  We did some cooking & cleaning,
tidied up the back yard a bit, and invited a close friend/neighbor over to
grill with us.

Around 5 pm, I made us a couple of cocktails and
planted myself on the patio ready to enjoy a lovely evening outside.

And it was lovely—for a while.

We ate ribs and potato salad and corn on the cob.

We drank rum & cokes.

We tried some fantastic cupcakes.

Then, as we were sitting there enjoying the twilight, Eddie
snapped at Rolo.  A fight ensued.  Blood was drawn by both dogs, and it was
really awful. 

Tuesday morning, we tearfully brought Eddie back to the
kennel.  The rescue is a no-kill rescue,
so he is safe, but still…

Eddie bear, you will always have a little piece of my heart.
I hope you can find someone who can give you everything we couldn’t.  You deserve it, little man.
