Yesterday, we said goodbye to Sizemore.
Three and a half years. It was never supposed to be that long. Teeth extractions. Tumor removal. One eye taken out. Then the other.
I really loved that dog. Daddy Baby.
Being able to care for you for the last 3.5 years of your life was an absolute privilege. Watching you relearn to walk after what seemed like insurmountable odds was truly inspirational. Your softhearted kindness toward tiny foster kittens and bottle feeding foster puppies was an example of love in its purest form. Thank you for relearning to trust humans after your extreme abuse and neglect. I have no regrets in opening my heart and home to you- even if the sadness now is painful.The Dillen Family will continue to foster animals in need in your honor. We will look for ways to help the most senior, sickly and seemingly unadoptable cases in your memory.
Because you have taught us life isn't measured by how long you last but by the quality you bring to what time you have....."
I edited this post at 9:13AM because people are coming here to read about Sizemore and what they can do to help the Humane Society of Charlotte. Here's what I had to say about yesterday's post that was at the beginning and now at the end:
FWIW: I removed all the comments from yesterday's post, mostly because there were many personal attacks on another person in there. I've said it before. Want to do that shit? Take it elsewhere.
Make fun of me all you want. Fine. Have a personal problem with someone you've probably never met and make comments you'd probably never say to their face? Not here.
And if you can explain to me how a company taking a poke at a certain demographic of potential consumers is good for business and promoting inclusiveness in cycling, tell me the next time you see me out IRL.
