Perfect Freakin' Timing, CANUCKS

by Anne

I'm not much in the mood for blogging today.

Finals week soldiers on. So far I've finished two papers, a take home final and a real final. Still left are two real finals, a portfolio and three papers.

Yesterday sucked a lot. The stupid old stupid faced stupid Canucks lost. Luongo let in seven goals?!?! That's bananas. I suppose I now turn all my attentions towards Pittsburgh. If/when they lose I'll cheer for Washington. Basically things is looking bleak for my interest in the playoffs from here on out.

Also, in things that actually matter: my family had to put one of our dogs to sleep yesterday. It was horrible. He'd been sick for a very long time. He had all sorts of wacky tumors around his little body. He had a four pound tumor and his spleen removed two years ago (hence the only thing my dog and Sean Avery had in common: a lack of a spleen). He was blind and had a tumor in his intestines that totally obstructed things and surgery wouldn't have helped. So, sadly we had to make the choice that was best for him. He wasn't eating and he wasn't happy, even though he wasn't really in pain. We all hugged him and kissed him and he licked our tears and said goodbye. We knew it was coming, but it doesn't make it any less sad.

I don't normally post pictures of myself on here but just being around my pets makes me this happy, so that's about how sad I'm feeling today:

My boy
He looks really out of it there but he was always kind of slow and lazy :)
He was only 10, we still have his mother who will be 13 soon and she's indestructible:

She's my princess

Lest we forget STH's official mascot:

He always looks annoyed
But I love his face

Ok enough about that, back to hockey and finals. If the Canucks were going to pick a night to lose, that was the right one, because I really couldn't have felt sad for them last night. Boooooooooooo.


  1. Aww, I'm real sorry to hear about your dog. It's never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and I know how it feels. I hope you feel better soon and good luck with your finals and papers!

  2. He was so cute...I'm tearing up just thinking about him licking your tears goodbye. )': I'm so sorry Anne.

  3. I miss my sweet boy.
