    Just wow, Gel. That brought big tears again but only because these were such wonderful, heartfelt words! So true, so meaningful.

    The day after my mom died, my neighbor walked over with an orchid. The moment I saw her, sobbing started. She hugged me tight and said, "Crying is good for you." I think it is.

    I can't believe it's been two weeks today.
    In some ways it has seemed an eternity. In others I still can't believe it happened to her, like it just happened.
    Missing my girl today. :(

    When I think of my GSD and the fact that he's not alive anymore, it makes me cry. I don't get emotional over every dog I've owned. Some may think it's heartless but I think I've learned to box it up and not let the emotion out. I've been around too animals and people in my life that have passed. But when they're special, they touch a place in your heart and you never forget them.

    Those milestones really suck. Yesterday marked 9 months since I lost my sweet Goober girl. :( My kids were here so we went through some pictures, talked about her life and the great memories she left us with. I cried, I laughed and had times I thought my heart would just shatter in a million pieces. Most of all, I felt grateful I got to share her life and be part of such an amazing journey. She was one of a kind, more than just a dog....

    I'm sure you saw it, but my "on this day" popped up on FB the other day of Dodie (our Sheltie) when she was almost 14.
    Boris went over the bridge on January 28th, 2011 at 11 am and Dodie went over the bridge on January 28, 2012 at 12:30 pm. The same date at almost the same time, so that's definitely a milestone I think about. :(

    Wow! What are the odds of something like that?
    And oddly Daisy went in the 11:20-11:30 am time frame.

    I was thinking about her today. I think about her every day, but today was with a fondness and missing rather than just empty loss.

    Daisy was a master manipulator that one was. :D

    If she saw Rocky getting attention from someone she would go grab a toy. Any toy. And parade past him with it and go lay down and chew on it like it was the best thing ever.
    Of course she knew that whatever she had he wanted. So chew on it, show some fang saying "it's mine and you can't have it" and drive him nuts.
    Then just get up and walk away.
    He would run and grab the toy and celebrate his triumph. Only to turn and see her getting the attention of who ever was giving him some. And it would all take less than one minute to complete.

    And he fell for it every single time! :D

    We know how it feels Gel.
    We lost our boy Stryker back in Feb. this year. At times it still feels like it did, driving home from the Vet ER with him in the car with us.
    There is not a day goes by we think of him a few times a day.

    Daisy had clearly heard the stereotype of females being manipulative and cunning!...Good for her; sounds like she had it mastered!...or maybe she just wanted her people in constant contact...yeah, that's it...they will just do anything for a touch!!, and I love it!
    Man, they are smart dogs!

    Also...I'm glad you are able to think of her and happily remember her little quirks and love for y'all. I'm sure that gut-wrenching grief will (unfortunately) rear its head unexpectedly at times, but it sure is nice to hear your memories of her sweetness and bond with you guys...chills, of course!

    Yes it can. I've been doing ok for the most part. I think of her all the time.

    Wednesday was a tough day, I'm not sure what happened.
    Some may recall we got the wife a new to us car, her old one was giving us more headaches daily.
    I had walked out and looked at the old car from afar and thought to myself that besides backing it out of the driveway and into the spot it's in now I haven't driven that car since before Daisy died.

    And I had to say it to myself again, "since Daisy died"

    "Daisy died"

    And it was like someone gut punched me. I went inside and broke down for a few minutes.

    I was just telling my Mom the story of your sweet Daisy. Of course I had to pull up pics of Daisy and Rocky. She was very touched and heart broken for you guys. She did brighten up a bit when I told her about your recent escapades with Rocky.

    I'm glad Daisy was in your dream last night...just shows you she is still part of your life and checking in to say everything is okay...chills.

    That happened with Boris not too terribly long after we lost him. I think it was his way of telling us he's okay and still with us in spirit.

    They are never far from us. They can see and hear us. So talk to them often. At some time you just might see Daisy just out of the corner of your eye.
