just like that, she's gone

yesterday jack jumped into the back of a minivan and parked her head between two seats, where two young children patted her and spoke to her of games and their yard, little secrets in excited young voices. i shook hands with their mother before she buckled herself into the front seat and drove away with my little dog.

and then i cracked.

i know she's going to be happier; the mom wants jack to sleep on the bed with her. they have trees. and two kids with all the time in the world for catch and fetch and tug-of-war.

i forgot to tell them to say "night-night" to indicate that it's time for bed.

i hope she slept well. i hope that she is happy. i miss my doggie.
