3Ws – Reagan Pasternak
I owe Reagan a huge apology. I've been sitting on her 3Ws interview for awhile. At first because as the owner of an older dog, I couldn't bear to think about dog loss. And then because losing Stella was so painful, I put it off a little longer. But I think Reagan has put her experience and empathy to great use in creating a journal that honors the great friendships we have with our pets and the grief we're left to process when they're gone. Thank you so much, Reagan, for your patience, and for sharing your kindness and insight with the world. ~Allie What do you create? I have been a … [Read more...]

Our dear friend Stella passed away yesterday. She was thirteen years, four months and seven days old. We were fortunate to be hers for more than twelve of those years. She had degenerative myelopathy and spinal stenosis and we were told well over a year ago that she would rapidly begin to lose mobility. Stella did everything her way, including this. She had some back leg stiffness, but we were still walking a mile a day (on hills) until Friday morning when it all seemed to catch up with her at once. I am so sad, but also thankful that she got to be her full Stella-self right up to the end … [Read more...]

Lexa Thomas has never quite fit in. Having grown up in a family of blondes while more closely resembling Constance Wu, she’s neither white enough nor Asian enough. Visiting her father in Taiwan as a child, Lexa thought … [Read more...]
