Lost a four legged baby, finished my book.

I had to put down my first baby a few weeks ago.  Her name was Liberty and she was a 7-year-old german shepherd.  I had gotten her as a  6 week old puppy and she was what kept me from lonliness when I was in a little apartment in Corpus and then a rental home in El Paso...she was my friend.  She was a great, loyal, loving dog.  She had lymphoma.  I found out on a Thursday and the following Monday she was gone.  I'm sad, obviously.  It's one of the hardest things I've had to face.  I never imagined losing my dog would hurt this much. 
I took her to the lake by my home one last time two days before she was put down.  I told her how good she was to me and that I loved her.  I thanked her for always being there for me.  I miss you so much Liberty, rest in peace sweet girl.

....I do have something positive to report.  My book is finished.  I have started to query agents.  Two actually have rejected me but with great feedback so I'm not discouraged.  I plan to keep on researching agents and sending queries till I get a YES.  I am soon to begin my second book.  I haven't decided exactly what I want to write about, but I'm sure the project will begin soon.  And I'll be back on this blog that I never share with anyone. :)
