Email from Darcy (8/9/08):
I went to your blog the day after I called you. I knew you would post the sad news. It has been good for us (Brooks and I) to read the kind words of all of the people who have commented. We both can't stop crying. I want Zebby back. I loved that guy. He woke us up in the morning. He called for me when he didn't know where I was in the house. I'd have to call back to him and literately tell him what room I was in and he'd come strolling to find me. He loved his canned food. He'd get it after we combed him every evening (to keep the mats away). He'd cry for me to come to him and give him arm pitter rubs. We both miss him dearly. It was all so sudden. We didn't get to pamper him at the end or give him a million kisses goodbye. I want him back. I loved him so much. He was so special, only with us for less than 2 years. I want him back. It will take a long while for us to stop crying (doesn't feel like we ever will). Please let everyone know how much we appreciate the special words. Thank you for being his first mom. Darcy.
