flowerock EOS was the rosy-fingered goddess of the dawn. She and her siblings Helios (the Sun) and Selene (the Moon) were numbered amongst the second-generation Titan gods. Eos rose up into the sky from the river Okeanos at the start of each day, and with her rays of light dispersed the mists of night. She was sometimes depicted riding in a golden chariot drawn by winged horses, at other times she was shown borne aloft by her own pair of wings. 140702
flowerock I named my dog eos. She is orange and gold like the sunrise, she brought sunshine to my heart when it was buried in a dark place. she offered only unconditional love and was so sweet. I called her sweetie dog sometimes. She has the best full_body_wag and sloppy spotted tongue. she loves to cuddle and is an excellent communicator.
Now she lives with my ex in tucson, he's a houseless on and off junkie and eos is now sick and will die without medication and regular treatment, which takes time, responsibility and money, none of which he has to give her. He loves her, but he needs to let go of this little bit of pride he seems to have left and give her to someone who will take care of her in a house. a lady already volunteered, she knows eos and the lady is so nice too. I cry sometimes, I am frustrated that I can't help, that I left her with him.
flowerock I hope she's ok. I miss her. 140823
flowerock. Today is the aniversary of her new life with a new human family. It doesn't weigh on me as often as it used to, I'm more happy than sad about it now, but it still hurts. I abandoned her and I didn't know that was what I was doing when I left her with my ex years ago. He wanted her and I thought he'd take care of her, he had the apartment and I just had the truck and friends houses at the time... I thought having her would help him get through life better, keep him focused and well. That was not the case. Right back down the drain he went, drugs and choices he knew were destructive. She got sick and he didn't get the right medicine, she stayed sick, he got more fucked up and ended up in jail. He did do one wonderfuloving thing though before jail, he signed her over to our friend who has made her life about helping animals. She was finally in good hands that would not abandon her. Our friend found her a capable loving forever_home and she said I could contact them since I was going to be in town to visit so that I could visit eos too... the new humans were polite, but apparently only pretending to be ok with that idea. I didn't get to see her, I didn't get any kind of communication with her new family. I see pictures through our friends facebook sometimes, like today... and I cry and feel terrible. I abandoned my best friend and left her in hell when I should have taken her with me out of it. The last time I saw her she jumped right up into my arms and furiously wagged and picked my face. He said it would be the last time I saw her, I thought he was wrong, but he was right. 160118
