I had yet another emotional moment while picking up Karma's ashes on Tuesday morning. Not going to lie - the whole ashes thing creeps me out. Before picking them up I wanted to take them to Zilpo hiking trail & spread them in one of her favorite hiking places. Surprisingly, once home with her ashes, I am OK & not creeped out by the fact she is sitting on the fireplace mantel in a box. It is very possible I am now just nuts.
Picking up the ashes wasn't the emotional bit. What about turned me into a weepy mess again was when they told me there was a ceramic paw print included. My response, 'Seriously?! Karma's paw print? That will throw me over the edge if I look at that right now.' I waited until after work so Steve & I could look at it together.
Today when I walked out of the grocery store there was a mobile canine adoption unit in the parking lot. I walked over & petted all the doggies but there was no sweet beagles so I left. When I later told Steve he said 'thank god!' I laughed since no doubt if they did have a beagle, I would surely have scooped it up to take home with me.
Steve is not ready for a new dog & neither am I really but when the right one comes along it will be hard to resist.....
