Whenever we’re zipping along the freeway on our way to downtown or airport, there’s always a place where our conversation pauses and we look to the right at a nondescript set of low buildings on a frontage street.
One of the buildings is an emergency veterinary clinic, which is where we took The Beloved’s old dog Eutaw two years ago today – the final day of her 16+ year life. As we drive by, we always seem to say “I always think of Eubie here…”
She was a great old dog and sometimes it seems like she’s been gone a long time, and sometimes it seems like just yesterday. Sometimes we say that Penny’s been such a good dog because she listens to the voice of that old dog that’s still in our home.
Sometime after that, The Beloved made a video of pictures from throughout Eutaw’s life. Even today, there seems to be some dust in the room when I watch it. (sorry for any playback issues…)
