I miss her a lot, but I know she’s OK, because when you're dead you're nothing.
Margaret Violet Noser, co-founder of my consulting business and my eternal muse, died on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at around 4:20 PM. The lovely people at Murphy Road Animal Hospital facilitated her suicide. She was ready to go. She could not hide her pain anymore. I think it was cancer, but it doesn’t matter.
Living with a dog is like living with an alien intelligence. I tried like hell to understand her. We slept in the same bed and ate the same food, but I’ll never really know her. I loved her very much, and I believe she loved me, which is probably just as good as if she really did. Who knows. Maybe the smile on a dog is real happiness and not just hidden pain, or maybe it’s both. Just like us.
It helps to look at old pictures of Margaret. Anna and I are also watching pug videos on YouTube many nights when we go to bed since all our televisions are too complicated to use.
Here’s some old pictures of Margaret for you, and by you I mean me.
A long video of Margaret doing nothing. I can watch this over and over. That’s the mystery of animals; they seem to do nothing, but they’re endlessly fascinating.
I could add pictures all day. She was the best. Rest In Peace dear friend.
