Hello–this post might seem like it’s late in the day to you, but I assure you–I’m posting at like 10:30. Hello Hawaii time….
I was really looking forward to sharing my silly travel adventures with you all, because Monsieur and I are nerdy enough to have very very silly travel adventures. Like, playing Mario-Kart-on-the-plane kind of silly. And themed-bracelet-I’ve-been-waiting-months-to-show-off kind of silly.
Instead, though, I talked to my mom after I landed and found out that one of our dogs, Ginsburg, (who I had taken to the vet the day before we left) wasn’t suffering from liver failure–but that her liver had already failed. It was sad and difficult, but my family made the right decision to have her put to sleep.
Which, by the way, sucks.
We adopted Ginsburg when she was nine and gave her a pretty awesome last couple of years.
For those curious, as far as we can tell she’s a Corgi-Dauschund mix. Her ears, when rubbed, will form the full Corgi ear position. She’s always looked like she was a puppy, and she’s always had the sass of a little old lady. She has the best back-handed snark face I’ve ever seen, human and mutt alike.
Thanks for letting me go on about this dog. I promise I’ll be back on Friday with something a little happier and more Hawaiin-themed. Mahalo & Aloha!
