It seems that as soon as you set a goal, life gets in the way. It certainly has me spinning right now and this is not how I expected my October to go.

I’m not really sure what set Shadow off, but it seems as if he’s having a set back in grieving Skipper because he’s started howling for hours at a time again. Suffice it to say, we’re not getting much sleep around here. And, therefore, not a lot of writing or songwriting. But if I finish #Blogtoberfest, well, I guess that’s a writing accomplishment.

We’re all missing Skipper but knowing how much Shadow is missing Skipper makes it all the harder to cope. But what makes me smile is this photo of the two of them together, knowing how close they were. We printed and framed it in remembrance.
