I cried when I wrote this and I don't cry easily. A friend read it and emailed me "Oh, the tears!" She said she does not cry easily even though she reads romance novels all the time. However, remember that crying is good for you because it frees up your inhibited emotions and makes you better able to experience emotion in your everyday life. I felt better afterwards. I felt like I cried all the tears I should have cried at bad times in my life, such as the death of my brother. I felt cleansed like I had an emotional orgasm! Free at last from the sorrow that I suppressed. I needed to cry! This is the pdf version of the same story that I posted in WORD format. The ending of this is sadder than the other version. It is a happy/sad story of a dog caught in the maliciousness of divorce.
