Statistics and Patterns Lie. I Hope.

SUMMARY: I'd like to break this particular pattern among my dogs' lives.

Six years after Amber died, Sheba died.

Five years after Sheba died, Remington died.

Four years after Remington died, Jake died.

It has now been three years since Jake died.

I'm just sayin', I'd prefer not to continue this pattern, thank you very much.


  1. For sure I hope you can break that "rule!"

  2. i should hope that trend doesn't continue. geesh. scary.

  3. Noting to myself (Dec 27, 2020)-- I got 5 years after Jake died before Tika and Boost died, and 5 years after they went before Chip died. So, I guess we're OK. Although 2 dogs in one month does make it 2.5 years on average. I'm trying not to think about that.
