Middlebrook Farm near us, and the weather was decent so Oskar and Ulani enjoyed them outside.
People have asked how we're doing. Certainly I miss Oskar, but I remain so thankful that I know he was doing well right up until the end, and I take great comfort in that knowledge. There has been some role changing among the house animals. One day last week Ulani fiercely chased Luke away from her bone -- way beyond what was necessary. I'm pretty convinced that they all recognize that the totem pole has shifted and they're finding their way back to order.
Oskar's bed from this winter is still on the living room floor. I'm not ready to wash it and put it away. And when I saw this the other day, I realized that maybe none of us is.
