We’re coming up on about a year ago that Ruby first started to get sick and then rapidly declined. It’s hard to believe that she’s been gone almost ten months. There are days when I feel the grief as acutely as if she had only left yesterday. Memories are both comforting and painful, as you would expect when you’re grieving. I’m grateful that I not only captured so many on photos and videos, but also in her “Ruby’s Reflection” column. Today’s memory goes back to the summer of 2012.
When a giant branch from one of the trees in my backyard got a little too close for comfort to my roof, I had a tree service come and cut it off. Ruby was never afraid of loud noises, but I knew this would be louder than anything she’d ever heard before. Read Ruby and the Tree Branch for the full story.
Bonus memory: the changing leaves made me remember the adorable video below of Ruby trying to catch them through the glass – enjoy.
