sorry for bein so l8. i only got to school l8 this mornin cos sox was sick. my dad is takin her to the vet this mornin. he thinks that she might have to be put to sleep cos shes so old and shes startin to suffer with arthritis and shes not gettin around like she used to. we were up most of the nite with her. shes 14 now. i remember when i got her she was 6 weeks old and she was the bounciest one out of the litter. when she was still able to i used to take her with me up the mountain and to the beach. she loved that and she would scramble up the mountain and back down to me and then up again. when she came to the beach she would sit and wait for me while i was surfin. the last coupla years shes just lazed around. even when i take her for walks she takes it easy where before she used to dart across the park. her fav spot to sleep is on the floor at the end of my bed. when i go and shower she lays outside the shower and when i get home from school she still manages to jump up against me. im hopin that maybe shes just sick and they can get her sorted out cos i just cant think of what it would be like without her hangin around me.

yesterday arvie when i got home the yard was clean and all soxs dishes and things had been packed away and she obviously wasnt there. i went down to the beach just to be alone and kinda remember all the things id done with her and the really stupid funny things that she used to get up to. she used to love eatin slices of bread and she could be a million miles away and still hear the bread bin openin.

my dad knew exactly where to find me when he got home. the beach is my happy place - its where i go when im feelin really shitty and i can sit on the rocks and cry my eyes out without worryin about people seein me. he didnt say a helluva lot - he didnt need to - he was feelin the same. after a while we walked home together. there was hardly anyone on the beach cos the wind was blowin like crazy again.

anyway B im gonna jet - i wanta swim a few laps and just chill.
