Tami- im so sorry to hear the news. I'm very sad right now with old feelings rushing back.

Take care of yourselves and give Sophie a hug from my giant clan. She was a great and beautiful dog.

I like to think that is where Sydney is now... Surrounding by her "sister" friends, and they are taking care of her. I am sure she is in very good hands.

Thinking of you.

It's all about the hair - and all about your immense love for her and hers for you. So glad you're coming back and telling her stories.

It's been two weeks since our girl left us. Although I would say we are doing pretty well, my heart does still ache for her and we miss her terribly. I have only dreamt of her once (two days after her departure). She jumped on the bed to wake me up - I must have shook in my sleep and woke up just in time to see her jumping off the bed with her tail held high. It's been a LONG time since she has jumped on the bed and a long time since she held her tail up.

When husband left for work today, I was outside puttering around, came in and there was a voicemail stating "Hey - there is a Sydney dog going to walk by our house any minute now - go look" (husband saw a person walking a syd-lookalike talking a walk). I got out there just in time to see her rounding the corner about 1/2 block away - again, fluffy tail held high and happy.

Thanks for all the warm thoughts - you are all so appreciated!

Tami

Ok, I'm sitting at my desk at work and my eyes are full of water (allergies?)...

Sounds like maybe Syd is letting you know she is ok. Love the visual of her tail held up high. Only down side is that it still doesn't stop the heart ache.

I remember awhile back that you talked about telling your girls each night that you still needed them. I borrowed that idea and tell Kinser every night that I'm not ready for him to join Decker yet. Haven't shared that I'll never be ready but since he can't really hear me I figure it's all good.

Sending a virtual hug!

just the other day i talked to my neighbor a young girl with a couple kids . i just got back from a trip to reno . my daughters dog teppie ( a chihauhau and jrt mix ) he is a boy and quite feisty to strangers. he jumped into her arms and she started crying . i thought that was quite unussual for that little tep because he does not know her .

she said her dog molly had died a mix pitbull black dog and very sweet . i said hmmm i just saw her the other day outside the fence in front of her yard ( sometimes an escape artist ) i was walking jesse and teppie and was worried about teppie if molly ran down off leash because that little tep can be a bit unpredictable and in my mind please molly dont come down here . she looked like she was going to make the charge happy to see me but she stopped dead in her tracks and i said thank you .

well back to the conversation she said oh no she got hit by a car a month ago . it was molly no question . the funny thing there was her family around her outside the fence and she seemed to be invisible to them but i did not think about that to much at the time .

haven't seen her again probably saying goodbye . i think the story comforted my neighbor and thats why those experiences happen they do want to say there alright .they are happy where they are and going and say its ok you dont have to be sad i am in a good place and someday you will be to and we will be reunited

tami love does not die it just transforms to something more and sydney is proof of that . i understand the missing part . sometimes i already miss jesse and she hasnt left yet . weird isnt it

Thank you all. Today has been very very hard. I thought I was doing quite well - not so today. To top off the tears, received a sympathy card in the mail today from the vets office AND a letter from the Charleston Animal Society with the Rainbow Bridge poem on it - also stating a donation had been made in Sydney's honor by her vet hospital.

I'm so sad.
