Today I had to do the hardest thing I've ever done in my life thusfar. I had to take my dog to get put to sleep. Cookie was nearly 17 years old, which is the equivilant of about 81 human years. He was almost completely blind and deaf and it was too hard to watch him suffer. He was a Schnauzer/Cockerspaniel/Poodle mix and he's been with me since I can remember. I don't know what I will do without him sleeping outside my door in the hallway everynight, and without hearing his barking because he wants a treat. He had a long and happy life and was never mistreated. There wasn't a day in his life when he wasn't spoiled rotten. He was my companion and my best friend and I will miss him very much. The bond between a boy and his dog is not something that can be expressed in words. Cookie was with me through thick and thin, he always knew when I wasn't feeling well. He would lay on my bed to protect me when I was sick, and he was always waiting for me at the door when I came home from school. I love him very much and nothing will ever be able to fill the empty space in my life now that he is gone. We are having him cremated so that he can still be close to us even in death. We are getting a new dog tomorrow named Poncho, hopefully he will help ease the sadness and heartache that my whole family will surely be feeling. And hopefully it will help my other dog, Beezer, adapt to not having his big brother around to take care of him.

well then, my life is so incredibly boring that I don't even have anything to write about in my blog. I used to write in this damn thing nearly every day and now it's once a week, on a good week. Something needs to happen in my life, and soon. I really should be looking for a job, but it's difficult to find a job in southern utah unless I want to work fast food (which I will NEVER do) or if I have some sort of medical training (which I obviously dont). Oh well, I guess I'll have to make the rounds with my resume again and hope that CD Warehouse has an opening or something. I suppose if it comes down to it I could try to get back on at sears. Anyhow, that's about it, I'll update the next time something actually happens.

So today is my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. I'm all busy running around getting stuff set up and taking pictures (I'm the photographer for the actual event). It kind of sucks being busy like this, but I'm happy for them. 50 Years is a long time, I can only hope that I'll find love like that some day.

well, we just finished unloading the last trailer from the old house. now all we have to do is get some of the boxes unpacked so that there is actually room to move around in the garage. I need to find all of the stuff from my room, my new room is pretty empty. anyhow, i will be forced to find a job soon and i'm hoping it won't be something like sears where i have to wear a uniform everyday. i also really don't want to cut my hair again. wish me luck in my search for a job....again.
