Sitting patiently at the dinner table was very nice.

Our boy Shiva has left the building. He's gone where other larger than life beings go, like Elvis. Oddly enough I'm really pleased to feel this enormous hole because what made the hole was so very worth it. We left nothing on the table. Cake and Waki are doing quite well. Naturally they have their emotions but also there had been play and joy. I think they really understood even better that we humans just how hard the last bit was for our boy Shiva. He did nearly a year in a wheel chair with grace and even on his last day had some moments of joy even through the failing of his body. What a blessing he was. I think Waki puts it best: (ok that could be interpreted as dead dog but trust me it's joy and happiness at this good earth and the things that make life the best).

R.I.P Shiva. Enjoyed getting to know you a bit over the last couple of years. Sorry for your loss Sherab and pack.

Aw, the old boy. So sorry to hear of the loss of Shiva. See you soon...
Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will not themselves be realized.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner, Shiva had a great run - lived a long and HAPPY life (from reading the posts).
He travels on to other pastures now ...

Today's guest story tellers are River Otter and Tree Stump. The seasons have changed but not much else at Cookie Land. There was wood cut season. Quite right. Not a bad way to go, for us dead trees. I think the man missed his helpful dog. Why yes. The little dogs just want to have fun. Who can blame them? The man put in a dog door. That could be great fun. The blond one didn't like it. It touched her bottom and made a THUP noise behind her. The woman and the black dog showed her in and out. Used almost half a bucket of liver treats but to no avail. Smart and willful the blond one would rather sit at the other door and wait for the woman to open it and let in all the cold air too. Over a month goes by and the woman gives up. Then the Blond One just starts using the door as if it had always been. In and Out. It is the spring time of the mind. Joy. Except if the vacuum cleaner is lurking behind the drafting table. Then there is a song of protest. Always put the vacuum cleaner back in the cabinet. Happy Winter.

We are waiting for a glass kiln. I made this "ornament" in class and I have the materials to make my own here in the studio. Hopefully the kiln will get here and I'll work out the firing schedule and the decal printing process so that we can consider making some keep sakes for this year's micro gathering. The studio elves are certainly ready to appear from nowhere and help.

I don't want to be greedy; one house elf would be plenty.
