princess went into permanent foster care with lynne yesterday, zander goes to his new foster home today.
there is mournful emptiness permeating the kitchen...not just for the humans, but also for benny and squirt.
and with odie's passing, he joins the legends of saints.
legends are great but loving the living was better.
we just don't think about how fragile and precious is life. as far as animals are concerned...we take their lives for granted. which is why we can abuse, neglect, mutate, exploit and finally discard them without a second blink of our eyes.
and we just don't get this...we as a species are still barbarians. we just use ipods, cell phones and nice clothes to trick ourselves into thinking we are further up the evolutionary ladder.
technologically advanced yet morally corrupt.
at least odie was honest...he never lied, he never blamed..he just was who he was.
missing him, missing tess, missing preacher...missing so many.
it sucks living right next to deaths front door.
