A Grim Weekend All Around

What a weekend. On Friday we had to put Polar down. It was a very sad day as we have had him since he was a puppy, but he had become so vicious to strangers that we could not take the chance anymore of him biting a kid or someone and getting sued. The last straw was this week when a kid came by, gathering canned food for some charity and Polar happened to be outside on his leash. Naturally he went after the child and got within a few feet of him before we heard the commotion and screamed at the child to stay back until we retrieved him. Iím gonna miss him, but he is better of now as he no longer has to spend the majority of his day in his kennel.

My mom called this morning to tell me that my aunt had passed away this morning. She had contracted the flu and was submitted to the hospital on Saturday. It really was a wakeup call as it is the first sibling of either of my parents to pass on. It really makes you realize how precious life is and how fast it goes. I cannot believe how long it has been since I have been out of high school. It seems like only last year we graduated.

Tomorrow I start my new position at work. I am excited and ready to get back to work as it has been a long weekend. Hopefully the coming week brings better events.
