Twenty years ago today I brought you home.
You posessed a magical combination of personality and character. Although your loss was devastating, in your eight short years of life you gifted with me indescribable joy. So much time has passed. Long ago the tears turned to smiles. I still think about you often-especially today.

Oh Sue, hard to believe it has been twenty years! So much love packed into eight short years. Enjoy the memories today!ReplyDelete
Yes, with Nick twelve years old and struggling a bit physically right now I guess I'm starting to think back to younger days.Delete
OK, tearing up....just a few minutes ago I was tearing up talking to Weezie (she's my screen saver) almost a year gone, come August, and she was with me for 17. Now you go and get all sentimental and get me going...ReplyDelete
Sorry Denise-you know what it's like. Nick is getting old now too. How did this happen?Delete
It's been said before but will be said every time we deal with one of our furry family members crossing the bridge... It just isn't fair that their lives are so short... Much loved and much missed....ReplyDelete
Maybe it's because we see them getting older, but we don't see ourselves getting older....until we look in the mirror and are surprised that really, we are, too. It's just 'cuz we love them so much. When they are a really good pet, it makes it harder, and Nick is an awesome boy.ReplyDelete
Such a good fur-mom you are Sue !ReplyDelete
Honey sent me this when Charlotte died. It still rings true...for me and for my friends.ReplyDelete
We Have A Secret
We have a secret, you and I
that no one else shall know,
for who but I can see you lie
each night in fire glow?
And who but I can reach my hand
before we go to bed
and feel the living warmth of you
and touch your silken head?
And only I walk woodland paths
and see ahead of me,
your small form racing with the wind
so young again, and free.
And only I can see you swim
in every brook I pass
and when I call, no one but I
can see the bending grass.
A very touching post! Pets give us so much. And it is so sad to lose our beloved companions. My inside cat is 15 now and beginning to have some health problems.ReplyDelete
