Memories of Newby

Our beloved Newby left us suddenly on January 4, 2010. He was only 5 1/2 years old.

Newby, our big, beautiful boy, thank you for the love, joy, and happiness you brought to our lives. We will miss you terribly. To not be able to look into those soulful eyes of yours is heartbreaking. We all struggle daily knowing that you are not here to be with us. You were not just a pet, but you thought and we all thought you were a "real" boy. You had so many human qualities, I suppose that is what made you so endearing. We hope you are happy and making new friends and chasing those squirrels that you loved so much! By the way, your pet squirrel seems to be looking for you! Be well our beautiful boy and we love and miss you so much!

January 11, 2010: My beautiful Newby, I cannot believe it has been a week since I looked into those loving eyes and you were suddenly gone. You just came in from playing with Sandy and you jumped up and kissed my hand like you always did when you came in from outside. We looked into each others eyes as we always did and you just collapsed and you were gone. I saw the life just leave your eyes as I caught you as you were falling. I miss you so very much. I want so much to be able to hug you and play with you as was our routine. Sandy still looks for you everywhere. She goes from room to room looking for you. She misses her buddy. I wish this was all a bad dream and I would wake up soon. However, I know it is not. I know you would not want me to be sad as you always were so happy and loving. I am comforted by the nice people here at Rainbows Bridge as they know what I am going through. They are very supportive and kind. I know that you have made many friends as that is your nature. Please be happy our beautiful boy and remember we all love and miss you so much!

January 18, 2010: My precious Newby, I cannot believe it has been two terrible weeks without you. My heart is still breaking and I miss you so much. I still cannot believe you are gone. I try to stay busy but my mind wanders to you. I hope you are happy and do not miss us too much. I miss coming home and you are not at the door waiting to greet me with that little nub tail wagging 90 mph. Yesterday, was the first day we went bye-bye without you. I know how much you loved going bye-bye with us! It was just not the same. We all still seem so lost without you my precious boy! I hope that you are looking in on us from time to time. My mind tells me that you are okay and happy. I just wish my heart would understand that! You were such a big part of our lives and now there is a big void. I still find myself crying everyday because I miss you so much. I keep thinking it will get better and maybe it will. I know you must have had another mission or you would not have left us. I just want you to know how much you are loved and how much you are missed. Take care of yourself my big beautiful boy. We love you!

January 25, 2010: My precious Newby, it has been 3 weeks since you left us. My heart still feels like it is in a thousand pieces. It is just not the same without you. I try to make it through the daily routine, but I miss you so much. I hope you are well and happy. I know you have made a lot of friends because their parents have told me that their babies have met you and are taking good care of you. I know they miss their babies as much as I miss you! I know life must go on, but not having you with me is just heartbreaking! I am trying to stay busy and it helps but nothing will ever be the same. Your headstone looks beautiful. We put Boston ferns around each side. Your squirrel friend was sitting in front of your headstone yesterday. I think he hid some pecans in the ferns! Grandpa misses you so much as do I. Take care and be happy my big beautiful boy. We love and miss you so very much!

February 1, 2010: My precious Newby, it has been 4 long weeks without you in my life. It has been quite a struggle going on with daily life without you. I am comforted knowing that you have made so many friends and are having a great time at Rainbow Bridge. I hope you do not miss us too much! It just is not the same around here without you! I finally packed up your bowls, your favorite blanket, and your toys. It was very hard for me and I cried the whole time I was packing your things. Sandy did not want to play with any of your toys and that made me even more sad. I guess she feels that those were your things. Grandpa had to go and buy her some toys of her own. She is finally learning how to play some. I do not think she knew how to play when she was younger. She still misses you and runs outside to see if you are hiding from her when you played hide-n-seek with her. She wants to run and chase you like you two used to do. I am sure she will get better at playing. Take care my sweet boy. I love and miss you so very much!!! Please look in on us from time to time!

February 8, 2010: Hello my big, beautiful boy! It has been 5 weeks since you left us. It still seems like yesterday. We all miss you so terribly much. There are some days that I don't think I can make it through without you and then I think to myself that you would be so sad if you knew I was still crying for you. You never liked to see me cry. You were always there to lick my tears away. Oh, Newby, how I miss your sweet face! I love you so very much and I cannot believe I have to go on without you by my side. We were inseparable! Grandpa said that you cried for me just when I would go to the laundry room and you didn't see me. I hope you are happy and you don't miss us too much. We will continue to struggle to get on with our daily lives. Be happy my boy and check on us from time to time! Until we meet again, stay happy and we love you so very much!!

February 14, 2010: Happy Valentine's Day my big beautiful boy!!! Hope you have a great day with all of your friends. I will be thinking of you and wishing you were here with me to celebrate this day together. You are my sweet Valentine and I miss you so very much! I picked up your favorite treats that you liked for this day. I put your red Kong frisbee by your headstone. Your squirrel friend still comes and places pecans in the plants!! Have a great day and remember I love and miss you with all of my heart!!

February 15, 2010: Hello, my big beautiful boy! It is exactly 6 weeks since you left us and it still feels like yesterday. Oh, how I miss my beautiful boy!! There is a new dobie that I want you to take care of, his name is Max. His mommy misses him as much as I miss you. Please introduce him to Einstein, Nakoma, and the rest of your friends. He too, left his family much too soon. I know you all had a higher calling, but we love you all so much and miss you terribly. Please take care of each other and check in on us from time to time. I love you with all of my heart and soul my precious boy!!

February 22, 2010: My precious boy, it has been 7 weeks without you!! Oh, how I wish you were still here. I still miss you so very much. Not a day goes by that I do not think about what you are doing and if you are happy where you are. I hope you are happy! There will never be another you!! You were so perfect! You never did anything bad, never dug holes or tore up anything! Perhaps you were an angel sent to me for that short time to show me that there is such a thing as unconditional love! I feel as though you took a part of me with you when you left. I am trying to get on with life and do something positive. I know you want me to be happy but it is really hard without you. I love and miss you so much. Take care my precious boy!!

March 1, 2010: My precious boy, it has now been 8 long weeks without you by my side. I still cry everyday and I miss you so much. There will never be any other like you! You were a once in a lifetime "baby." There are still so many days that I struggle just to make it through the day. Please know that we think about you all the time. Grandpa misses you so much. I know you wouldn't want us to be sad, but to carry on with our lives. That, my boy, is easier said than done! I keep wanting you to run into the kitchen and going to the pantry for your treat. It is just not the same without you. Sandy still looks for you and I guess she always will. She misses her buddy, too. Well, precious, until we meet again, please remember Grandpa and I miss you terribly and love you with all our heart and soul! Be well and be happy my boy!! I love you so so much!!!

March 4, 2010: My precious Newby, it has been exactly 2 months today that you left us. I am still so sad and miserable without you. I know that you would want me to be happy and get on with my life but I miss you so very much. Some people just do not understand the bond that we shared. You were my world. You were with me 24/7. I guess your heart was just filled with too much love! I think about you all the time. I am trying to stay busy and it helps but still the ache in my heart lingers. I will try to do better as I know you are safe and happy at the bridge. Take care my boy and remember I will always love you!!

March 8, 2010: Hello my big beautiful boy! Hope you are doing well and having lots of fun! I love you so much and still miss you terribly. You are always in my thoughts. I miss all the fun and adventures we had together. Sandy is getting better. She is doing some of things that you used to do around here, like carry her babies around and hiding her bones. I still have your babies sitting exactly where you left them, right beside my bed. I have not moved them at all. I miss you with all of my heart and soul. Please don't forget us and come by for a visit from time to time. Until we meet again, I love you and miss you. Take care of yourself my boy!

March 15, 2010: Hello my precious boy! Hope you are doing well and taking care of all your friends at the bridge. It has been 10 weeks now since you left us. We still miss you terribly. We love you so so much and still wish you were here with us! I think about you all the time. Just remembering the things we use to do together makes me cry and then I smile because you were always so happy all the time except when I was sad! I am trying not be so sad all the time, but I miss you so much! Take care my sweet boy and remember we all love you and miss you!!!

March 22, 2010: My precious boy, it has now been 11 weeks without you! It still seems like yesterday. I miss you so much! My heart still aches with every beat. I didn't think I had any more tears but they still flow even today as I write this. I try to put on a brave face and make it through the day. I just cannot get over the fact that you are gone and so quickly too. I thought we would have had at least 5 more years together, but it was not to be. Newby, I am really trying to get on with things, but still have setbacks. I will try to do better because I know you would want me to move on. I will always love you and you will always remain my beautiful boy!! I love and miss you handsome boy!! Take care of yourself.

March 29, 2010: Hello my big beautiful boy!!! It has now been 12 long weeks without you! Oh, how I miss you!! Not a second goes by that I do not think about you and wonder what you are doing. I know you are safe and well but my heart still aches for you. Life here has not been the same without you. Newby, I miss you so so much!!! I wish you were still here with me. Some days are better than others. Please don't forget us and check on us from time to time. We all love and miss you so much!!!

April 1, 2010: Good morning my big beautiful boy!! I hope you are having a good day. Sunday will be Sandy's 4th birthday and the 3 month marker since you left us. What a bittersweet day!! We miss you so so much. Sunday is also Easter. I hope you can look in on us that day as we celebrate our Lord. I am sure you are with him at his side. I know you are our guardian angel. Newby, I just cannot believe you had to leave. I love you so so much and my heart aches all of the time. Take care and I will talk with you later. All our love to you our precious boy!!!

April 4, 2010: Happy Easter my precious boy!! Hope you are having a great day and having lots of fun. Today, marks 3 long months that you have been gone. We miss you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't still cry because I miss you so much. You are so loved and missed. Today was also Sandy's birthday. She is 4 years old today! I know you would have loved to be here to celebrate with her. I made cupcakes and Grandpa bar-b-qued. It was all so good, just wish you could have been here to share in that. Friday would have been your 6th birthday. I so wish you could have been with us longer. I am thankful that we had you for 5 1/2 years. They were wonderful years and we will treasure them always. We love and miss you so much our handsome boy!!!

April 9, 2010: Happy Birthday my big beautiful boy!!! Today, you would have been 6 years old or young I should say!!! You were taken too young. I am going to bake your favorite cookies today in honor of your birthday. I wish you were here to celebrate your birthday with us. Newby, I still cry everyday for you but it is getting better. We all still miss you so much and will miss you until the day we are reunited with you. Until that time, my precious boy, have fun and please check in on us from time to time!! I love you with all my heart and soul!!! HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT BIRTHDAY!!!

April 12, 2010: Hello my big beautiful boy!! Hope you had a great birthday with all of your friends. I was just thinking about you and wanted to tell you how much we miss you and how much we love you. Our lives have not been the same since you left. My heart will always have a hole in it until we are together again. Sandy is getting better and is finally learning to play. It has been a struggle for her but she is finally doing better at playing! We think about you all the time and I still halfway expect you to come around the corner from the kitchen like you used to do! Remember, my boy, we will love you always and forever!!

April 20, 2010: Hello my precious boy! I was just thinking about you and just wanted to tell you hello. I miss you so so much! I still wish you were here with me. I think about you all the time and I know you are well taken care of and very happy. I wish I were! It is so hard to make it through the days without you. I try to stay busy and keep my mind busy but it always trails off to thinking about you. I know that we will be together again one day but I still miss you! TJ and Dad want me to get another "baby", but I just cannot bring myself to do that. Part of me wants to for Sandy's sake and then other part doesn't want it at all. Nothing will ever replace you for you are in my heart forever. Please let me know what to do! I love and miss you terribly. Until we meet again, take care of yourself and please check in on us from time to time! We love you precious boy!

April 27, 2010: Hello my big beautiful boy!! Just thinking about you and how much we miss you! Newby, we love you so so much and miss you more and more everyday. I still cannot believe you left so suddenly. You still had so much love to give! I miss you all the time. I miss talking to you and how you would always listen to what I had to say. You always gave your opinion on the topic in your sweet way!!! Sometimes, I really have to force myself to make it through the day without you. I think I am getting better and then something happens and I am right back where I started. TJ is getting me a new puppy for Mother's Day. You probably already know that! We pick her up tomorrow. I think you probably had a hand in that. Everything just fell into place like it was meant to be. Her name is Sahara Desert. I hope Sandy likes her. Sandy has been so sad since you left. I think she along with myself needs another baby to love. I know you understand that and would want us to share our love with another baby. She is the same color as you! She was born in January, the month you left! I hope you will come by from time to time to see us and help guide us with this new baby. I could sure use your help and guidance! We love you so so much Newby. Take care my precious boy!!

May 4, 2010: My big beautiful boy!! Today is our 4 month marker of your departure for the bridge. Newby, I still miss you so so much!! I wish you were here with me! I still cry for you daily. I try to put on a brave and happy face for everyone, but the truth is, I just cannot get over the fact that you have gone on without me. I thought we would have several more years together, but that was not meant to be. Why oh why, did you have to go so soon? I cannot wait until we are together once again. The new puppy, Sahara Desert, is a good puppy. She is so loving and does a lot of the things you used to do. She immediately went to your big red ball and played with it like she has always had it. She fetches it and brings it right back. She is so smart. She reminds me so much of you!!! She is a handful at times though!! LOL I think she is going to be a good girl! Even though I am busy with her, I still miss you so much. I love you with all my heart and soul. Until we are together once again, take care of yourself my beautiful boy and remember I love you so so much!!! Please check on us from time to time!

May 24, 2010: Hello my big beautiful boy!!! I was just thinking about you so much today! Thank you for always being there for me. I miss you still so much and love you with all my heart and soul. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you and wish that you were still here with me. The new puppy Sahara does so many things the way you used to do them. She reminds me so much of you but I know she is not you. There will never be another you!!! I hope you still look in on us from time to time. So, until we are together again, please take care of yourself and always remember that I love you so much!!

June 1, 2010: Hello my handsome boy!!! I hope you are having a great day and playing with all of your friends. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I miss you so much. Tomorrow is T.J.'s birthday. I know you probably know that! Please send him a birthday kiss. He misses you too. I just cannot believe that you were taken so young! I will miss you until the day we are reunited. Until that time, be well my boy, have fun, and please check on us from time to time. I love you so much! Be happy my sweet prince!!

June 7, 2010: My precious boy, I was just thinking of you like I do everyday. I love and miss you so much. I just found out that your daddy passed away. I am sure you know that as he is probably there at the bridge with you. I hope you found each other. Heather misses him so much as I miss you. You have been gone for 5 months and it still seems like yesterday. I wish I could have you back, but I know you are happy. We will be together again some day. Please don't forget us as we will never forget you. You are in our hearts always. Sahara is being a good puppy. You are probably helping to guide her. She reminds me so much of you in the way she does things and her attachment to your red ball. She took to that ball like it had been hers all along!! Sandy is enjoying her company. They get along very well. Sandy acts like the "mommy" and bathes Sahara. It is really funny to watch. Please continue to check in on us from time to time. I know you are busy and having fun with all your new friends. Please remember we will always miss you and we love you so much our sweet prince!

June 14, 2010: Hello my precious boy! Just wanted to say hello and to tell you I love you so so much! I still miss you daily and I always will until we are together again. Sahara is doing so well. She is truly a good girl. I know you are probably helping with her. Thank you so much! She does so many things just the way you did. She is such a sweet girl. I tell her stories of the things you did. She seems to understand. Newby, I miss you so so much. My heart still aches for you. You will always be my big beautiful boy! Please check in on us from time to time! Have fun and take care of yourself my sweet prince. I love you!

June 28, 2010: Good morning my big beautiful boy! Just wanted to tell you hello and I love you so so much! Hope you are still having fun at the bridge with all your pals. We still miss you terribly. Sahara and Sandy are doing well. They are playing well together and even take naps together much like you and Sandy did!! Sahara does not want Sandy on our bed just the way you used to do too! Sahara is so much like you! She just loves dragging out all the toys from the toy basket, however, she does not put them back like you used to do. I will have to work on that!!! She is going to be taller than Sandy I think. Thank you for sending us such a good girl! She does everything we ask her to do! She is so smart and so loving just the way you were. Sandy keeps her in line though when she thinks she is doing something she shouldn't when they are outside. Well, I just wanted to give you an update on things. I think we may have a hurricane named Alex headed our way! Well, take care of yourself my boy and remember we love you so so much and will always miss you until we are together once again! Be well my sweet prince!!

July 4, 2010: Happy 4th of July my precious boy!! Well, today marks the 6th month that you left us. We still miss you every single moment of every day!! Newby, we love you so so much. I still wish you were here with us. You made every day so wonderful. Now, we only have the memories of you and they are great memories!!! You will live in my heart forever my sweet sweet boy! Sahara is getting so big. She is such a good girl and minds really well. I know you are probably showing her the way to behave. She reminds me so much of you. She is just so loving like you were. She really loves that red ball that you loved so much. She has so much fun with it. It is her favorite toy just as it was with you! We went to see the fireworks display and I thought of you and how much you disliked the fireworks, especially the noise they made. Please don't forget to come check on us from time to time. I love you my precious boy!!!

July 19, 2010: Hello my beautiful boy!! Oh, how I still miss you!!! I so much wish you were still here with us. Not a moment goes by that you are not in my thoughts. I wonder what you are doing and if you miss us as much as we miss you. There will NEVER be another you! You were so perfect in every way. I wish I could be with you as I miss you so so much. I miss our time together. I thought we were going to be together for a long long time, but evidently God had other plans for you. The girls are doing well. Sahara is really growing. She is going to be tall and she and Sandy play well together. Sahara is a good girl and very smart. She does more and more things just the way you used to do them! Newby, I just miss you so so much. Take care of yourself my precious boy and remember I love you with all of my heart and soul! Please don't forget us!!

July 28, 2010: Hello my precious, sweet boy!! Just wanted to tell you how much you are loved and how much you are missed down here! I know you are having fun and have made some special friends at the bridge. I hope you are happy there! It is raining here today and I was thinking how you used to love to go the window and watch it rain, since it was such a strange event for here!!! Sandy still misses you but she and Sahara have become good friends. Sahara is such a good girl. She is so smart and reminds me of you more and more every day!! I know she is not you, but she sure does a lot of the things just the way you used to do them. She is so loving and affectionate. Thank you for blessing us with such a good girl, Newby. I know you had a hand in sending us just the right one!!! I love you with all of my heart and soul. Until we meet at the bridge, take care of yourself my sweet boy and remember I will always miss you!!

August 4, 2010: Well, my precious boy, today marks 7 months that I have been without you! It has been a long seven months!! Not a day goes by that I don't wish you were here with me. I miss you still so much. Sahara is growing like a weed!! She has really been a good puppy. Please don't forget to come by and check on us from time to time. We love you so so much and wish you were still here with us. You were one in a million Newby! There will never be another like you. Thank you for loving us so much and for the joy and happiness you gave to us. We will love you and miss you always!!

January 4, 2013: Hello my precious boy! Oh how we still miss you here. You are always in our hearts!! I had to finally bring myself to delete some of the entries I had so that I could write more tributes to you as there was no more space left until I deleted some. Sorry! We wonder what you are doing all the time! I picture you running around with all of your friends and having a good time. One day we will be reunited once again but until that time please remember how much we love you and how much we still miss you. You are gone but never forgotten. Please come by and check on us once in a while. We love you so so much!!!! Hugs and kisses my precious boy!!
