I wrote my book because I wanted to help myself deal with Twilight's passing away. There where so many people that knew my dog because I took Twilight to many stores locally and she was always with me 90% of the time. She spent 14 years with me and you could take her anywhere, she was the best behaved dog. We also went to the local park downtown sometimes twice a day. Today I still get people asking me where is she? And always look in my car for her. It will take a long time to get over her passing and I dont think of having another dog. I take one day at a time I try to keep myself busy. I work, I have audited classes at Fredonia State.
i had so many memories of twilight she was the only dog i could love i dont know if this would change someday? i remember how she enjoyed going to garage sales meeting new people she was a social butterfly. behind walmart was a pond we visited she wanted to see the mother duck and her babies this went on for years every spring. I think about driving to the petsmart in hamburg a 35 mile drive they had a doggy daycare i checked her in for a couple of hours she got a chance to play with other dogs.i thought this was a good thing. After i picked her up we went to wegmans i would buy a rotisserie chicken she always liked to shop around with me there ws a tjmax next door we visited . Today i feel much better then when she passed but its like finding a new life i just didnt know what to do with myself. I started to draw more it was a positive talent i had since i was a teenager i prefer charcoal vine sticks or a 6b pencil i never liked oil painting or any painting. i loved to create a print i took 3 years of print making in school i loved every class. well i know this book has helped me grow in a positive way. i think the best is to take one day at a time. I hope i sell many books to the many people who loved my dog.
