I awoke this morning to the terrible news that Easy, a Weimaraner whose blog I have been following for years, died last night. Through the blog written by his mom but from the perspective of Easy, I have laughed at their antics and cried when life handed them lemons. Though they live across the world from me in France, sharing our lives through our blogs we came to know each other and kept in contact through email off the blogs. This is one of the great things about blogging- we open ourselves up and make connections with people we would never have been able to otherwise. Though Easy has faded from life with us, he lives on in our hearts, and will do so in the many hearts he touched through his blog. My heart aches for my friends as I know the pain of losing a beloved pet, and especially so quickly and unexpectedly as was the case with Easy.
