rest in peace, prussia. 1996-2013

an awfully nice gesture from Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital.

just near the solstice and the sun comes up so early. I've been on night patrol with Prussia.
I should explain. I cancelled her appointment with the vet reaper way back when, and miraculously, she rebounded, put weight and spunk back on and has been enjoying life greatly. 

Until two days ago when she started to get weak in the legs, walk like a drunkard then finally lose the use of her legs at all. 

I have been blessed to be able to work from home so I can be near her. Nights I nap beside her, monitoring her. Bringing the food and water dishes to her face to take from. 

For now, I'm not taking her to the vet. She is resting and I pray that I can keep her comfortable until that final rest comes. That being said, I will of course bring her to the vet if she shows any sign of pain. 
For now, it's watching the sunrises together.

drove my friend out to jersey to pick up a motorcycle he bought off craigslist. the guy was also selling this 1967 mercury. his garage stuffed to the gills with love reminded me of my dad's. a happy feeling.

on my doorstep

an unusually humane june, it seems. The rain comes frequently and it's cool. The leaves still feel tender, new on the trees.

signs of summer

saturday at mc golrick park. the kids swarmed around the water fountain like flies, filling their balloons and shrieking with the joy of summertime.
