5 months

Miss my little stinkerdoodle all the time but time has made the pain and loneliness without her less severe.

A friend sent this to me a while back and it has new meaning to me as the days, weeks and months pass, so I thought I would share it here…

“It came to me that every time I lost a dog, they take a piece of my heart with them and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.  If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will become dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”  -Nancy Wenner

I have a lot of dogs that are coming in and out of my life lately with volunteering and each one does add a little bit of itself to help fill the hole and void that losing Lupe has left me with.  I know that it will never fully close because she will always have a piece of my heart but I do treasure the love and joy that I have experienced since she crossed the rainbow bridge.  Extra snuggles and belly rubs to all of your Tripawds and Monkey Butts today…they deserve it 🙂

  1. That is the most beautiful saying I’ve ever read and I truly believe in it. I am keeping it and know it will help us get through what you are going through one day.

    My favorite saying in the past has been:
    Dogs are the only relatives we get to choose

    I really wish they could stay with us so much longer. Their love is so unconditional and it makes my heart skip every time I come home to our dogs whenever I’ve been away… be it a minute or most of the day.

    My heart goes out to you. It’s wonderful that you have exposure to dogs with your volunteering. They will help you through this. I also volunteer and I enjoy giving comfort to all of the dogs as well as receiving comfort from them.

    Take care,
    Hunter’s Mom

  2. Thanks…I think so too but I’m VERY biased. She reminded me of a muppet in so many ways (would be a cross between Fozzie Bear, Rolf the Dog and a touch of Animal).

    As Maggie’s Mom says, we should all be more dog and the saying above makes me realize even more how true that is.
