How worried I was there was no-one to care for you, and I fought before they took me away. A friend came and saved the day, but that was not the end of it.
I did not know I wouldn’t come home, and knew not where you would be.
If souls linger, mine did. I sought out another from the other side, got a message across. They understood and told me you were safe, that I could rest easy.
It has not been an easy time for you, to adjust to change, but you settled into your new home in a relatively short time. No spring chicken though old girl, but you had your walks, a comfy bed, toys and company, were well fed, warm, and looked after.
Pain and illness struck a little while ago and suddenly you showed your years. Stiff and tired, the walks were slow, but you rallied and enjoyed the time you had left.
They say our beloved fur children go to a special place and wait for us humans to join them. I have been waiting for you, and now you have come to me.
Let us walk as we did, both of us younger and more sprightly in our gait. The years and pain just fall away and we are together once more………….. this time forever.Note:
Our friend passed away two days before Christmas last year and her dog was taken in by mutual friends who live opposite. Had they not, we would have taken her as she was not a young dog. She enjoyed walks along the beach and through the park every day, but in recent months her health has deteriorated and on Bank Holiday Monday, she was taken to the vet for the last time.
Now I see these two souls having been united, walking side by side as they always did when we first came here. RIP
May their souls rest in peace. I’m sure that they would be reunited and are in a much better place
Free of pain and together.
Beautiful post Di. I’m sure it is exactly as you’ve said and they are together again, forever this tine.
Thanks Fransi. I like to think so.
Utterly beautiful, Di ♥️
Thanks Steve. We miss her face and the banter she’d share with Hubby. She was so worried about her dog when they took her into hospital. Now they are together again.
Poignant and beautifully written.
Happy together, beautifully told! 💜
Thanks Willow. I like to think so.
Me too 💜
So touching! ❤
Beautiful post, Di. I worry what would happen if Puppy Cody outlived us, which is why once she’s gone, I will never get another pet. The timing is just too close to take on that kind of responsibility.
Kela’s owner had the same dilemma, especially as the surgery she was going in for (and didn’t actually have because of her BP being way too high) had a 50/50 chance of survival. We said we would take her if it came to that, but were happy to have her while she was in hospital. Her relief was immense.
Beautiful words. Sad, beautiful. I think I need to go hug the dog. A lot.
Thanks Cage. We’ve missed her face these past 8 months, but now she and her dog are united.
Hug your dog from me too.
thanks. Puppy fixes are so important.
I was very anxious thinking you were writing about Kela’s owner and then Kela! I’m relieved but still saddened. I do think they will be together… free of pain and wrapped in love!
Kela and her owner are well and we see them every day, sometimes joining them for a walk in the evening. Jade was about 14 so a good age for a GSD.
