    Aw, Genny! I'm sure that was hard, rehashing it all over again. So many people loved her! That's the one heartwarming thing that came out of that. Others hurt over losing her too. :(

    Today gonna be a tough one for me. My kids are here, the boat is packed up and ready. We are going out on the river with a stop at Greta's favorite sandbar where we will bury her ashes.
    I can't tell you how much that girl loved going out on the boat, splashing and romping around in the water and just hanging out with us. She always knew when we were heading to the river. She would get so excited and stay so close to me like she wanted to make sure she wasn't left behind. In her younger days, she would jump in the boat and wait for us to get ready.
    I'm sure we will run into some fellow river rats that will want to know where the river Queen is. She was pretty well known for her cruising style. She loved to put her butt in the seat and her face in the wind. Quite the sight, this big ole moose sitting there with her back feet dangling, just cruising the river looking sooo happy.

    Lounge in the sand, frolic in the water, but most importantly........run free! Free from the fear your illness brought you, free of the pain you were too stoic to show, just free to be the beautiful girl you are! Love ya and miss ya, Goober!

    Aww, it will be bittersweet, I'm sure! Painful, but freeing to release her ashes in the place she really loved! I hope its not too hard on you and your family. I'm sure Greta is running the beach with you!! Close your eyes and you will feel her!! Run free, Greta!

    My heart goes out to you on this journey. Like @MyBuddy said, it is bittersweet and she will be with you in spirit running free.

    Well, I was right....tough day. Very emotional for all of us.
    The weird part was Drake seemed to understand what was going on. He stayed right where we put her ashes, just laid there. He even brought her a stick and laid it down.

    I was very touched yesterday when I walked out to the mailbox. There was a package addressed to me. I couldn't remember ordering anything :scratch: I opened it to find this...

    I have no idea who the thoughtful person was. There was a card but it simply said "When it gets tough without her, remember how lucky you were that she chose you. When you are missing her, look down at your wrist and know she is with you....always"

    OMG, that brought instant tears!! What a wonderful, thoughtful surprise for you! I'd want to know who it was to thank them! But still, a very nice gesture! That will be a very special bracelet. :)

    Me too! I hope whoever it is steps up and lets me know.



    It is. It's not real high quality so I'm not sure if I never want to take it off or if I want to put it somewhere safe so it will last forever.
    For now, it's on my wrist. ;) It's huge though so I have to find someway to make it smaller so I don't lose it.

    Yep, it came on a emotional day, what would have been my Dad's Birthday. I think I need to go to sleep for about a year and wake up all healed up. This emotional roller coaster has run away and I can't get off.

    I got something similar after Mars passed away from a well-known member.

    Quite overwhelming when you realize other people are thinking about you and your best friend while you are grieving. I'm slowly coming to realize that the tears will never go away they just come with less frequency over time.

    Yep, Greta had such a huge circle of friends from her therapy work that are left with broken hearts that has somehow left me comforted and overwhelmed at the same time.



    It's so weird to me. Some days I can talk about her and it brings a smile to my face then the next day, it's bam right upside the head like a train just hit me.

    That moment when you realize your dog was loved by more people than you even know.

    Wow so very touching for both you and Fred... It brings a flood of emotions, but at the same time you know people really do care and hurt along with you.

    Well its been 6 months today. My family has come so far in the healing process, yet still have so far to go.
    I still have bad days where I miss her so much, yet some days it's like she is still here.
    I find myself smiling more at the thought of her so my heart must be healing. Thanks for the memories Goobs! You were a much loved dog that gave me more than I could ever return. I hope you are happy and pain free. The world is better because you were here...

    Gotta give it to my boy. He has stepped up to fill the void. He has been great medicine for me. I have always thought he was a cool dog but he has bloomed into a truly great dog. He has grown into a handsome protective and loving dog. Together we have learned how to channel his drive into the perfect doberman for me.

    I can't help but think of this poem today. I know Greta would be happy for me. I' m of course thrilled to honor her by loving again. I guess @ Tropicalbri's I'm having trouble letting that lead out a bit.

    Just getting through the 11 month mark, I can't help but think about the 1 year anniversary coming up.
    What an impact this girl had on me! I'm still reeling in so many ways.
    A friend sent me this link this morning and of course it made me think of my very special girl.



    Greta, I know how happy you are to know the love you left in my heart is not wasted. It will be shared with another little girl, not to replace you, but to honor you and keep everything we shared alive. You're the "one" that will always hold my heart and help me to share the love. With Rumor coming home in just a few days, I need you to know that.
    Love you ALWAYS and forever grateful to you for your lessons on how to live a better life.

    Today marks 1 year since we said good bye. Still miss you so much....

    Drake is a happy boy once again. He and Rumor are the best of buds. They play and chase each other constantly.
    I think we all have reached the point that we came to terms with saying farewell. We all miss you but are happy to know you are at peace, pain free and loving this phase of your life.
    I hope you are happy to know that Rumor is a good choice her us. While she is not you, she is a very good girl. She is doing all she can to help in our healing and doing a great job.
    Thanks for everything Goober! You were a one of a kind that will live forever in our hearts!
