That’s how long it’s been since Khia is gone.

2 months seems like such a short time ago but it feels like forever since I saw her.

The more time that passes, the more regret Mom feels. All the what ifs and should haves. The thoughts everyone knows are to be avoided at all costs because their torturous.

So what’s changed in 2 months?
–  I sleep under the covers every night since Khia’s gone. Mom and Dad think this is curious behavior because I hated when she would go under the covers and hated being covered myself even more.
–   I’m now scared of thunderstorms.
–   I don’t care to go outside as often… especially at night.
–   Jamison and I are working on our friendship.
–   I get more people food… much to Mom’s dismay.
–   I go for more car rides.
–   I sleep more.
–   I have a watch post for when the cockatiels signal activity in the driveway. Mom thinks maybe I look out the window in hopes of seeing Khia.
–   My grandma (Dad’s mom) admitted that she loves me. Yeah, grandma, if you’re reading this, your secret is out! *snicker*
–   I’m not having as many nightmares anymore as I was last month.
–   I feel like I have nothing to write about. When I had Khia, there was so much to tell. Mom and Dad thought we were hilarious together. As I was telling someone earlier, my blog is based on actual events (99% of the time). So if you don’t hear from me for a bit of time, it’s probably because nothing memorable happened.

I’m sure I’m forgetting stuff but that’s the gist of it.

To my Khia: I love you with all of my heart.

I was a discarded, lost little stray without a house or a family...until my mom found me. Now, I am the happiest, most loved dog in the whole world!

    Noodle, I wish I had the magic words to make you and your family feel better. I’m glad you and Jamison are working on your friendship, maybe he is lonely too.
    You are such a loving pup, I enjoy reading about even the most ordinary of days in your life. Losing a family member as special as Khia is very hard, keeping you all in my prayers. Giving you a hug and a cuddle.

    • Thank you, Miss Margret. I think you’re right about Jamison. He’s changed a lot since she’s gone, too. I like my blog to be positive and happy so I can make people smile. At the same time, I don’t want to be fake with my readers. When I feel like I’m forcing myself to write, I know it’s going to lack quality and just wait for another day. Thanks for sticking with me through the good and bad! <3, Noodle

    • Ruby, I get away with so much more now! When I do back wiggles in the dirt, Mom only yells at me if it’s the first day after a bath. Otherwise she says it brings me joy and I should be happy. I also do LOTS of zoomies everywhere. *ear licks*


  4. I understand completely, Noodle. Jacques isn’t the same either – and it’s been almost a year since Rocky passed. It’s a new normal that doesn’t feel normal. It doesn’t feel right. But over time we’ve all kind of adapted while still feeling the large void. We try to live every day to the fullest in Rocky’s memory. I think that’s the best you can do. Love to you & yours!!

    We understand. The loss of each dog leaves a big hole in our hearts. Everyone is touched by it. Sidney sleeps in the spot that belonged to Drew during the day. The two of them were totally bonded. He was a basket case until the arrival of Shelby.

  13. Noodle, honey, ask your Mom to play fun things and give you extra great treats when it thunderstorms. In no time at all you won’t mind them one little bit. Ear licks.

  15. When we lose someone we love things are just never the same again…..they might get a little better or easier to manage but not the same. I think you’re doing super well without your Khia…..but remember something – she’s right there with you ALL the time (probably trying to make you get into trouble!!!!!).

    Hugs, Sammy


  16. Aw…sweet Khia. We miss you but know that Noodle will come up with more zany antics to share. Keep the faith and smile; it makes people wonder what you’re up to. Happy weekend, my friend and enjoy those bed cover snuggles. ❤


  17. gahlearner says:

    Poor Noodle, you make my heart hurt. I’m thinking of the dog I lost, and feel the same what ifs and whys. But I also look at Maia and what a gift she is. I just wish we could have them both.


  18. It is very hard to get used to the loss of somebody close. We all have had to do it or shortly will have to go through it. You’ll see the bad memories will fade and you will remember the good. Trust me….I wouldn’t lie to you my friend.

    Kitty kisses,

    • Thanks, Siddhartha & Sherri-Ellen. Mom said she knows you’re both right. It’s very hard. If it were the other way around, Mom would be giving the same advice, though. You know, Siddhartha, you’re pretty wise for a young kitty boy. That’s one of the reason I love you so much! *ear licks* Noodle (and *hugs* to Miss Sherri-Ellen).
