Today has been so dreary both emotionally and physically--overcast skies and a broken heart. I began the day saying goodbye to our 11-1/2 year old Lab, Sugar, knowing that more than likely she would be gone when I returned from work. Throughout the day, the music that played over and over in my head was the Bette Middler song, "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today":

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's gonna rain today ...

"... Lonely ... so lonely ..." repeating over and over in my head.

Of all the dogs, she was by far the sweetest, most loving, obedient, and beautiful dog we ever owned. We had the most wonderful time when she had a litter of a dozen pups and was the best Momma Dog. We will miss her terribly.
