One might think I am a bit of a weak minded fool over the loss of a dog that was constantly beside me for the better of ten years. Perhaps I am. I know that folks "unfriended" me on Facebook during that period of mourning which seems sappy and weak to some.
Yet...when an artist, even an amateur like myself, loses his muse it can be intolerable to that person for at least a brief period of time. So it was with me. I will not apologize as I continue to eulogize my dog. She was a great friend.
