21 October 2012: Hey Muff. Yesterday there was a bit of thunder and Missy was acting all scared over it which is weird since it's never bothered her for the last ten years. She followed me into the van and curled up next to me on the chair while I was online and she's never done that before. There was more thunder that night and they followed me around the yard when I went to see Amy in her cage. Missy and Sally are both a pair of chickens when it comes to thunder.
2 October 2012:
Whoa two years since I last visited you and it's been seven years since you went to the Bridge. Having been away for so long doesn't mean that I forgot you, I won't ever do that. Sally slept with me for half the night last night and it wasn't very comfortable as I couldn't stretch out like I normally do. I have one of your pictures on the wall near where I sleep so I see you everyday. You'll never leave my memories or my heart.
2 October 2010:
It's five years today since you left us Muff and I still miss you just as much.
It's the second month of Spring and the weather is starting to warm up and before we know it it will be summer again. Ugh my least favourite season.
Sally turned 5 last month. She is due for another clipping as we let her hair grow so it would keep her warm in Winter.
June 25th 2010:
Hey Muff. I hope the weather is warm at the Bridge cause it's wet and chilly here at home.
Missy has been a bit of a cow when I play ball with her and Sally in the morning.
She will fetch her ball and bring it back maybe like three or four times then the next time she she cart it off around the other side of the yard and not bring it back. I tell her "Pick it up" or "Missy get ball" but she wont. So I wait until Sally has finished playing then go over and take it off her. Reminds me of you when you only brang the ball back halfway and I had to go and get it each time.
April 1st 2010:
Oops I didn't know I was away for so long. Anyway how are things going Muff?
A few days ago I googled something and a site called Is It Normal? came up,
I checked it out and have been reading things people have been asking on it
and I'm getting alot of laughs out of it. Which is good since I'm using feeling
lousy with my depression.
Another site I joined up is Experience Project. I joined the "I have lost a
beloved pet" group and added a story about you.
There are a couple of movies coming to the cinema but as it's school holidays it
would probably be packed with kids and as you know I prefer to go when it's not so busy.
I hope you have a great Easter at the Bridge. Talk to you later <3 <3 <3
December 20th 2009:
Hope you have a great xmas at the Bridge, Muffy. Lots of hugs & kisses!!!
Saturday 3rd October 2009:
wow Muffy I can't believe it's been four years since you left for the Bridge.
It only feels half that long.
Not a day goes by when I don't think about you.
Talk to you later :)
Saturday 8 August 2009:
Was that you Muffy when I felt the air near my back move when I woke up last night? I hope so but then maybe you're always around but I just can't feel it. You know how I'm always tense to maybe I can't feel you around. I'm sure you haven't left even though you have been gone nearly four years.
We are hoping to see Harry Potter at the movies but it's on at difficult times. I think they are showing it as a coffee session one day at 2:00pm so that might be a good time.
.Monday 20 July 2009:
Back again. You've been on my mind today Muffy. Plus I bet you make me think of you so you don't feel like I have forgotten you. Don't worry because as long as I live I will always remember you.
Just wish you could visit me in my sleep. I can't see you with my eyes but in my dreams maybe that would be easier.
I've been playing Wonderland Online for nine months now. Yesterday I finished making my hot air balloon and took it for a test run. I'm looking for some other online RPG's to try out.
Sally is due for another hair cut again. Neverending with her.
Thursday 11 June 2009:
Three months since my last visit. I have your picture by the computer now. I know you understand that I have many things going on in my head. I didn't mean to stay away, it's just I didn't what to write to you about.
Two days ago I made profiles for you and Sally on dogster.com. Other dog owners can see what great dogs I have. I don't say "had" because to me your still alive. Just in another form of life.
That dream I had of you two days after your passing was enough proof that your spirit will still live on.
I had a bad month and I was put on medication for it. Thankfully things seems better now. There are a couple of movies coming to the cinema in town so it will be fun to see them.
Missy lost her ball the other day but later she must of found it as she was caught chewing on it in her and Sally's dog bed.
So now it had chunks bitten out of it.
I still remember you lack of interest in playing ball.
It's the first month of winter and things are rather chilly.
I know you are lapping up the constant warm sunshine at the Bridge.
The other day I got out the lock of your fur that I saved. It was kind of like having you near.
I'm thinking of doing a scrapbook page on you and adding the fur to it.
Still think of you every day. I'll be back soon <3.
Saturday 28th March 2009:
Missed you Muffy. Sorry I havn't been here in a while. Other things comes up and stuff but you were always in the back of mind.
Friday 13th Feb 2009:
Added a photo of I have of you waking up from sleeping.
It's Valentine's Day tomorrow so here's a heap of love to you, Muffy.
Be back later ^_^
Thursday 5th Feb 2009:
Hey there Muffy. This past week has been stinky hot. It was up to 46c on Tuesday last week and the power went out in the evening, but came back on about 1am.
I always knew I prefer winter best!
Poor Sally had no ball playing during the heatwave, though now it's cooler it's playtime again.
Sunday 4th Jan 2009:
Hey Muffy. I have not forgotten you. To be honest I needed to come by as I've been feeling really down for a while, and needed to see you.
That's what having depression does to you, gives you some bad feelings sometimes.
Although Missy and Sally give good doggie hugs I'd give anything to have one from you too!
Let's see, we went to see Madagascar 2 at the movies. It was good but the first one was better.
Looking forward to seeing Bolt & Igor.
Also been playing an online game called Wonderland. Having build things and battle monsters keeps me thinking, and away from the sad moods.
Christmas is passed for another year so I've put away your xmas tree and add a plant.
Miss you heaps. Hope I can see you in a dream soon.
Saturday 20th Dec 2008:
Howdy Muffin. Xmas is Thursday, and we'll be getting KFC. Oh yeah I know chicken was your fave,
I wish you were here as I'd spoil you with some. I'm sure you've been eating plenty at the Bridge.
Friday 5th Dec 2008:
Uploaded some pics of you so myself and visitors and see you.
Friday 28th Nov 2008:
Hi Muffles! Had to come by and see you. Me and my mum went over to get dinner today, and I remember when I used to take you on the lead when we used to go there. Remember how going down our street you would sniff every tree on the way.
Renewing your residency today.
Tuesday 18th Nov 2008:
Hey Muffy-pie. Mum is renewing your residency soon, and scanning some photos of you for your album here.
Remember I used to call you PuffyMuffy, and MuffyWuffy. *lol* Where did those names come from??!
Saturday 15th Nov 2008:
I've been stressing over little things for a few days, and it makes me more sad when I wish you were still here. When I miss you heaps I think of the dream I had of you two day after you passed. I know you're still around, I just wish I could sense you more.
Wednesday 5th Nov 2008:
I got out some of your puppy photos, so I can scan some off for the album here.
Geez Muff, I can't believe you were once that small. Seems like a lifetime ago.
Sunday 2nd Nov 2008:
Hi buddy. I've been looking online for animated angel wings so I can put them on a pic of you.
I was feeling a little down this afternoon, and while Sally and Missy give great doggie hugs I'd still love to hug you again. Don't worry though, when the time comes to be together again there will be all-day hugs.
Monday 27th Oct 2008:
Hiya. Playing ball with Sally today, and I remembered your version of ball playing was going after it, picking it up and only carry it back half way then dropping it.
Though I'd give anything to play ball with you again, even if your effort was half hearted!
Christmas if a couple of months away, so I'll be renewing your residency.
Monday 20th Oct 2008:
I really miss you today, Muffy. Wish I could give you cuddles again.
The other day I rememered when you were young you would get these bursts of energy and sprint around the yard. You would stop for a minute and then off you would go again.
Thursday 2nd Oct 2008:
Morning Muff!. Today it's three years since you went to the Bridge, but it doesn't feel half that long.
Thursday 25th Sep 2008:
My thoughts are sending you a packet of Schmacko your way, I know you loved them!
But there are bound to be endless doggie treats at the Bridge, too.
Monday 22nd Sep 2008:
Hiya! Today I thought of those little quirks you had. How you would hop up and down on your back legs when your breakfast was bought out, "Yum yum, let's have it, mum!", and if Missy didn't finish hers you be sure to finish it yourself. No wonder you were a little chubby!
It was always funny to see you scratch if your back itched, by lying on your back in the dirt you would wiggle your rump side to side, and your legs twitching with delight. I can picture it now!
It was hard thinking of a name for you, as the ones I thought of just didn't seem to fit.
Then out of the blue the children's tv show, Today's Special, came to mind. There was a puppet
mouse in it named Muffy, and for some reason that name stuck out the most. It suited you perfectly.
Sunday 21st Sep 2008:
Hey there Muff, been thinking of you latley. Sally (my Cavoodle) just had her third birthday.
She so opposite to you in many ways. Even though you were a JR cross you still had the bossy nature, and didn't like looking at the camera when I wanted to take your pic, and only by saying the magic word ("bikkie") would look my way. Even though I wasn't with you when you passed, on the second night I dreamt you came back, were young, and full of life. Knowing it was a sign you were still around though in another place helpped ease the pain I felt for having lost you.
Some might say getting another furbaby two months or so later is to soon, but somehow Sally was meant to be in my life, I just had a feeling. She just LOVES playing ball, while you never really had the interest. Though whenever I mentioned "walkies" or if you even heard the sound of the lead being taken out you got all excited as you knew it was time for a walk.
As you were my baby I think I spoilt you with the treats as I remember that little roll of fat on your rump. Chicken was a favourite of yours as were pratically on my lap drooling whenever I had some. I always gave those three little bacon slices out of the take-away burgers.
Though set in your ways, I trained you to shake hands, as you would paw me when I'd say "Shake" or "Give me five". The best trick you knew was catching little treats in your mouth, but you did miss a few. You knew that "blanky" meant bed.
I still have your collar next your photo, and even if I miss you now and then, I know you may have had a hand in sending Sally to me, as things seemed to fall into place.
Missy is still with us, she's like you were, loves her food! I'm sure you met up with Bindi at the Bridge. We will all be there with you one day. Though until then you have a special place in my heart and that's how I keep you with me.
I shall look though photos of you to add later. See you soon, kiddo!
