Amidst all the wedding planning and figuring out all the tiny details, we’ve had a really hard day today.

You see, Mathew’s family had 2 outdoor dogs when I moved here, and 1 indoor dog. This past fall one of the outdoor dogs, Tinker, passed away. It was pretty hard on Mathew and his sister/BM Kristin. Tinker had been around 18 years (and so had the other dog, Tippy).

Well last night Mathew and I stayed up last night to deep clean his room, and while going to throw away the trash at 1:30 am, we went through the backyard and could not find Tippy. We stayed up looking for her until 2:30, and then I couldn’t go to bed until 3:30 am. We woke up at 7:30 this morning to try to find her again, but no luck.

I’m not sure what to do to help Mathew because Tippy was HIS dog (Tinker was Kristin’s). He’s been down all day, and I even brought him a yummy BLT from Subway to help cheer him up. I’m even letting him pick whatever he wants to on tv in hopes it will help.

This isn’t the first time I’ve been around Mathew when he’s suffering a “loss” of some kind. For all you engaged/married gals, what do you like to do to cheer up your man?
