Le sigh...

I'm in Michigan. And a bit drunk, so bear with me. (two long islands that were very very strong will do it.)

Apparently, Cisco got a bit sick this week. He's been doing far-less-than-stellar for some time now, as anyone knows. But he's been happy when he's been laying down, and still playing fetch with me. Apparently, this week, things have been rough.

And it's not any surprise, or anything. It's been a less-than-stellar year for him. But he hasn't been truly suffering, up until now.

I know what will happen, and I know what we have to do, because it's only fair to him. But I don't see how that makes it any easier to swallow. Cisco is one of my best friends. He's been a major part of my life and my family, and if that makes me sound pathetic or something, well, fuck off.

I couldn't ask for a better first dog. He's been absolutely all I could want, and unconditional love goes a long, long way. Especially when you're down, or when you want to play a game of pillow fetch.

I've issued the edict that nothing should happen before I get back, but I don't know how long we'll have. It won't be long, I fear.

And I know, it's been coming. It doesn't make it easier. It doesn't. So please no "told you so" or "well, it's no surprise." I assure you I'm aware. It still fucking sucks, and is the hardest lump I've had to deal with for a very, very long time.

I'll let you know, because I know some of you have also been able to enjoy Cisco. Thanks for reading, and thanks for caring. It means a lot to me.

Notes:
hey, just wanted to leave a note saying I know what you're going through. I consider myself a close personal friend of your dog (shirts that he's destroyed aside) and will miss his massive amount of energy and spunk. He aided me in scaring the crap out of you when evan hoisted me into your room. And was our ever-loving pillowbiter. Watching the daily show or arrested with any other creature just seemed wrong.

If you need to talk, lemme know. It's almost a year since Jasper left and it's still tough. Good luck my friend.
