It’s been a long week since my the family’s number one family member (or at least I like to think he was) passed away. It’s sad to say that my little Marley had a few struggling days prior to his passing that left my parents and i heart broken. I understand that to some it may seem strange to be quite attached to an animal that isn’t a normal household pet. But as my mum still says he brought our family “such joy” with that cute little butt of his and that adorable face that looked up at us for food. I’ll admit, till now, I still miss that scratch by my window in the morning telling me he’s up and is ready for breakfast. Not sure if I did my duty as an owner as I never taught him how to jump or climb or chase after little animals. He stayed in his home area in the backyard and never really left after a while. Even with a hole under the fence, he never got curious. He was the baby of the house and I don’t think any other animal could ever quite replace his sweetness embedded in our hearts. We had our fair share of tears but we’re good now. Mama is good and I’m good and even dad misses him which I’ll always find strange.
And my goodness I still don’t like my neighbour very much as we stood there for Marley’s burial, having our moment, and my neighbour knew exactly what we were doing. Yet, he takes his dog and brings her to us and doesn’t even have the decency to let us be for at least 10 minutes. So uncool.
Anyway, I don’t care much for him anyway. Dad and mum thought of getting new babies and yes, even my dad allowed -still, I can never understand. So yesterday, we introduced my dad to two new hyper-energenic and rather clever babies. I’m sure to post later about them along with some pictures too.
