Tales of the Javahunden

This blog is the story of my life and the life of my dog, Coffee. We don't have a lot of adventures, but I like to think I can make my ordinary life interesting through the magic of creative hyperbole.

Goodbye, Javahound

I just want you all to know that this will be the last post to this blog. This morning on my way to school I found my sweet Coffee puppy dead. He had apparently been hit by a car. I feel unbearably guilty because I should have been home yesterday to take care of him. This is one of the hardest days I've had in a long time. I came to school any way, but frankly I'm not sure I'll be able to stay. I survived my first two classes, but I have this really bad pain in my stomach and I can't stop crying. What should I do? Going home won't help. I'll just miss him more. I sure wish I could go away for a few days. Maybe I could pretend that my dog would be home when I got back. I don't know. I've never been very good at denial.

I don't know if animals go to heaven. Scripture is pretty silent on the subject. If any animal deserved to spend eternity with God, though, it was my Coffee. Goodbye, best dog ever. I'll miss you more than you know.
