Among my repertoire of 'favorite blogs' was one called Manhattan Chien, about a french bulldog living in Manhattan. I loved reading it and thought the owner was so artistic and clever with his blog and posts. I hadn't checked it in a while. Then last night, while I was scolling through my favorites I hit on this one, and read that in November, Eti, the french bulldog had died of a brain lesion. I feel really upset and sad thinking about my own little Brooks, and knowing I will undoubtly outlive him...this is the hardest thing about having pets. Their departure is always too soon.
