Did you know The Spaniard?
Today is one of the worst days of my life. I took our best friend to the vet this morning for tests and we decided to say goodby to Maximus Decimus Maridius, The Spaniard. All 5 of us put names in a hat to pick his name, the girls were bummed cause his name was not Snickers. haha. He never knew he was a dog. He only barked at car doors and strange noises at night. He would snuggle with any of us that were feeling ill. His love for us was truly unconditional and his personality and disposition was like no other. He loved to sing along and howl when I brought a new cymbal home and tap on it. Every Thanksgiving we would all go to a movie together as a family. One of the best traditions was for each of us to write down on a post-it the movie we wanted to see. We would then fold each post-it the same way and put a Scooby snack on each of them. Spaniard would decide which movie we saw each year. This pic is from work which he spent the day with me because the house was being sprayed for insects. It was so cold that he kept bugging me unitil I put him up on the counter next to me wrapped in a warm jean shirt. Today I have a Gig in L.A. and leave in about 45 minutes but I don't feel like playing drums. My heart is truly broken right now.
