I appreciate all of you so very much. Your comments made me feel validated in my anger and a bit of comfort as well. We found another dog yesterday. He is a rescue. All is well with my Z monster. I will share more about this later.
My aunt died yesterday. I will be out of touch for a couple of days. She was a good woman. She was there through so much of my life. Her daughter is my best friend cousin, Becky. I easily spent as much time at Aunt Johnette's dinner table as at my Mom's. Well, maybe not quite, but I was probably there more than she would have liked. My heart is broken for Beck. I am numb at the experience of her death. I am going to be strong for my girl. Becky has always been the steel in my back bone and now I will try my best to be hers.
