When I started this Grad School Thing, I facebook’d a guy I went to school with. We knew each other, but never hung or ran in the same circle. But because of the nature of social networking, we comment, email, like posts, all the time. He graduated from the same program I’m currently in and is working on his Ph.D. at OSU currently. He’s been a huge source of support these last months and I’m so grateful that the internet made us friends.
I say all of that to say this:
Last night, he posted that his sweet pup, Chaucer, was seizing. Pretty frequently. This afternoon they had to put him down at the vet. As we know, it’s a thing that hurts beyond measure. And as we know, treats for everyone. Extra love for those we’ve got here, in honor of those we’ve sent away.
