Everything is different now (Synopsis)

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring—it was peace.” -Milan Kundera

Many of you have been along on this journey with me for years now. And one of the great joys in my life that I got to share with you — at least a little bit — was that of my dog, Cordelia.

You may also have noticed that I didn’t do an Ask Ethan this week, I didn’t write a Comments of the Week article, and I didn’t give you a diversion for this weekend. I hate to share bad news with you, but I have to tell you the truth, too: Cordelia had cancer, and we had to put her down this past Thursday.

If you want to know a little bit about the story of her life — she was my first dog — you can read it here. Thanks for understanding.
