This is a short post today, and as you can see, a late post. Anyone who is friends with me on Facebook will already know the reason why this post nearly never came to fruition. As I sit typing this is bed, my trusted four legged best friend lays at the end of the bed drawing what will be her last Wednesday breaths. She won’t see another Wednesday. But this post isn’t about that. I will write a celebration of her life in pictorial format when the time comes. As it’s quiet and everyone sleeps, I thought I’d keep myself busy and not let another IWSG post slide by without recognition.
The Insecure Writers Support Group is a monthly blog hop set up by blogger extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh. It’s a great way to meet other writers, to support and be supported, to cheer on and be cheered. And the commitment is only once monthly.
This post is simply to say, it’s a new year, if you’re not a part of a writers group and don’t have time in your life, why not try an online blog hop like this? Here’s to a great writing 2014 everyone!

I just hugged my own little furry baby in honor of yours. They are trusted and true and it’s so wonderful when we can be with them until the end, they deserve that much from us. Take your time and as soon as you can, write on.
Alex J. Cavanaugh says
I’m sorry, Rebecca! That is so hard to let a furry friend go. Hope we get to see the pictures here.
Margot Kinberg says
Thinking of you at this difficult time, Rebecca. I’ve been in your shoes, and it hurts. Peace and healing to you and calm and rest to your girl…
Pets are precious members of the family, lots of love to you both. I’ve only recently realised from spending Xmas hols with a dog how amazing they are. I saw your post on FB, am thinking of you xx
Susan Gourley says
We lost both our pets within twelve months of each other. They’d both lived long healthy lives but it doesn’t make it any easier. Thoughts to you.
Losing a pet is so hard. They give so much love, and ask for so little. The happy times with your pet will be with you always.

I’ve had a few friends recently lose pets. It’s sad and reminds me of mine that I’ve lost. But I also remember the time I had and wouldn’t pass up the time just because one day I had to say good bye. *hugs*
I shed a tear for you Rebecca, I know how difficult life must be at the moment and I will Bob the Dog an extra hug from you. xxx
So sorry, Rebecca. Such a difficult thing to go through. I’ll be thinking of you.
Jacqui Murray says
There is little worse than losing a dog. I am sad for you.
Julie Flanders says
Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry, Rebecca. I didn’t see this on FB. This nearly brought me to tears as I know how heartbreaking it is to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Hugs to you.
Bless your heart, Rebecca. This is the only bad part of having animal companions – they don’t live long enough. But, the time we share with them is so wonderful. I’m thinking of you both.

I am so sorry about your pet. They love us when no one else seems to. You and your girl are in my thoughts tonight.
