I'M NOT DEAD, still a fan

I'm so sorry that I haven't been active on this website for a while.
It's been a year since I last posted a blog here and about 7 months since I scrolled through the forum itself. The only thing I've been doing here is accepting friend requests and reading messages. At least I did that. Gosh, I'm sorry.

But life hasn't been as good since my dog, Elmo, died eight months ago. He was my best friend and we were inseparable. LITERALLY. Not saying that is was unhealthy or anything, he could stay at home when I was in school or something. No problem. But.. he just liked to be in the same room as me at all times. When I took a shower, he was as glued to the other side of the door, waiting for me to come out again. And I often took long showers. If he got impatient, I could hear him "complaining," making silly dog noises.
He followed me everywhere around the house, it's something that my older dog never did and never will. Elmo was my little shadow. Always there, following my footsteps. Always there to support me. I just loved that dog so much, so much that no one of my friends seem to understand this. One of my friends said to me that she lost a relative about the same time as when I lost my dog. She didn't understand "why I'm more upset about a dog than SHE is about her relative"!
Well, maybe because you didn't spend EVERY DAY with that relative of yours as I did with Elmo. Maybe because you have huge family and a lot of friends. I don't.
Maybe because I've never lost somebody but you've been to a lot of funerals.

Not only has it been hard for me to get over this loss. I've been studying a lot in school, I'm finishing college next semester if everything goes as planned. And I have a job now. Then.. I've been really active on tumblr. I love the fanbase there. The news spread really fast there. For those of you that are interested, my tumblr is taypunzel.tumblr.com.

I promise you, I will be more on this website from now on. My Christmas vacation is 12.10.13. That's the day I'll finally stop worrying about school and focus on my interests and on my job a little more. :)

    Hi there!! I'm so sorry to hear about your dog that's so sad!! :( About 3 years ago I lost my dog called Sammy. We got him when I was 1 year old and he died when I was 15 years old. So he was 14 when he died I know he was an old dog and I got plenty of time with him but I was heartbroken when he died. A two months previous to losing my dog Sammy I lost my uncle and my other dog Jake. So , I kind of get what you went through. Some people just see dogs as pets then other people see dogs as being their best friend. And i'm sorry you lost your little doggy Elmo. By the way your dog Elmo was very cute and you look like you were the most perfect friend and owner that Elmo could've ever asked for :) ( P.S. sorry about the long comment :P )
