Well, the last couple weeks have been kind of tough.  As you would expect when you lose your best canine friend and constant companion of the last 14 years.  

As you can see from the title, I am still studying German.  ("Leben" means "life.")  And as you can see from my Instagram, life is going on.  Andy and I planted hydrangea, lavender, and dianthus under the apple tree where we buried Lucy.  We've been trying to keep busy: working, enjoying our favorite Michigan summer produce (asparagus and strawberries), going to the movies (Frances Ha was really great), reading, planning our trip to Europe later this year...

Life goes on, though it's not the same at all.



  1. I love seeing the photo of Lucy. She was so lucky to have to to share her life.

  2. i'm so sorry :( i've been offline a lot and had no idea :(
    i'll make a toast to her tonight.

  3. The house gets so quiet. My English Mastiff girl left a huge hole in my heart, and our home. I just kept on keeping on until I was ready to adopt a needy dog. My Clementine will never be replaced, but I knew I couldn't replace her with another mastiff.
    My heart goes out to you both. I'm sure Lucy is watching over you both.

  4. I'm so sorry Karen! Hope you and Andy are ok.

  5. I've been thinking of you and Andy. I know what a mess I would be.
    Take care lovely lady.

  6. Oh sweet....life is never the same....I feel for you so much.
    Its so hard when a fur baby leaves us.
    take care & sending a little ray of sunshine to you.
    love V
