empty spot


It's been a rough day with us losing Jupie this morning. The oddest thing is the absence of his presence - hearing his bark when the garage door opened, expecting him to eat crumbs off the floor and listening for the now-absent "thunk-thunk-thunk" of his happy tail hitting the floor.

What's been the strangest to me is not seeing him in his spot (pictured). That was always a good vantage point for him as he could always see where each family member was. Close to the kitchen, the stairs leading to the bedroom, the basement stairs and the front door.


We're glad that we won't be living in a home that has so many of these subtle reminders of him.
