I had to say goodbye to my sweet Ramona on Wednesday. She was truly the kindest, gentlest dog I'd ever known. I'm relieved that she is no longer suffering, but I'll miss her terribly. She is most certainly running around in that big dog park in the sky with all the Sutherland pets who came before her: Sadie, Chloe, Sophie, Matt the Cat, Alice, Hilary and her feline sister, Vosha.
Thanks to my customers who endured the shop's erratic days and hours. She had a severe seizure disorder and required a lot of attention and supervision. I had to open late and close early a lot toward the end.
I look forward to pouring my creative energy back into the shop and a few new musical endeavors.
