This is a post I never dreamed that I would be writing this soon, and if someone would have told me that I would be writing about TWO beloved pets who recently passed, and that were also friends, I would have told them they were certifiable.
Before I share my thoughts about the passing of Easy and Sammy, (who I am certain are showing all the love they experienced here on Earth to others who have gone before at the Rainbow Bridge), I would like to acknowledge that there have been many heartbreaking pet losses in 2016. Far too many. I don't write about them all, I tend to write about those whom I feel closer to through their blogs, through my pets, through their humans, or all of the above. I in no way, mean to ignore the heartbreak that anyone else is experiencing who has lost a pet. The loss of a pet causes horrific pain, I know, and you know that as well. My heart goes out to ALL who have experienced what to me, in MANY cases, hurts MORE than losing a human.

Hoping she doesn't mind that
I stole this photo from her blog
I learned that a "salamander's ass is DARK!!!", that the "postman came to Easy's crib", that an "elephant skate" is a car, that many blog posts began with a simple "Hell-o" or "H-ello" depending on Easy's mood. I would laugh when anything came to Easy's home and I would hear "Give it to the Weimaraner, Give it to the Weimaraner!!"
Easy was always one of the first (and often one of the ONLY ones to comment on Dakota's blog.) Easy's Mom won a number of doggy cookbooks from Dakota too, why? Because she was often one of the only people kind enough to enter.
From birthday cards and sweet comments, Easy cared about others. I could cite countless moments where that was the case.
Easy was a young dog when he passed last week. I am still reeling with shock. My heart hurts that he is gone. My blog travels will never be the same.
