Our beautiful white angel..our lives have been so much richer because you were in it.
I will never forget that day at the shelter while I was there picking up a transport I saw you huddled up in the cage in the corner...waiting for the others to eat before you ventured to get what was left...you were so wise I thought, that was my second thought...my first was, "how could anyone leave this beautiful old dog here to die?"
I came back the next week and there you were, I passed you by not looking..I knew my heart couldn't take it, because I knew you would be one of the first to go.
Then three days later I was back bringing supplies and there you were, so I ventured over and read your story.
Your owners were older they had died, their grown kids, had left you outside on a chain, you had a collar embedded in your neck which had to be surgically removed.
You had been at the shelter for 31days, which is unheard of. I went up front and asked the gals how you had lasted that long, they replied, "we didn't have the heart to put this one down"...then I knew in that instant it had nothing to do with their "hearts" it had to do with you being put into my path...I came home and told your daddy the story, he never hesitated even though we had 6 already, go get her she isn't going to die in that shelter and besides she is 12 years old and a big dog she can't have long left."
Well fast-forward 3 years later here I am, writing your story my precious Old Girl. I hope you know that we gave you all the love your heart could hold for the past three years your life was great...we gave you your dignity back, your zest for life and the ability to leave this world on your terms and with me by your side telling you how very much you were loved...
BUT most of all you gave us your unconditional trust and love which had to have taken a big leap of faith since you lived a life of hurt and abuse before you came to us.
Now there is nothing left to say but "thank you" for giving us so much and allowing us to have your love now go and play in the meadows with Kaizer, Maddie and Princess. Enjoy your new and healthy life and don't forget to save daddy and I a very special spot right beside you in heaven.
Forever and always our , Old Girl.
Today as Captain Jack was running thru the yard, he is staying with us while the kids are at the beach, he is lots bigger than you but as white as snow just like you were, anyway today as he was running I thought of you and how much I missed you but I also thought today, how wonderful it is that I didn't have to know ALL the horrors of how your life was until you came to us three years ago, but how just as wonderful even though it was heartbreaking, that I KNOW what the last moments of your life were on this side, the last three years were the best of the best all we could do and I know you knew it because you had become a beautiful old lady dog who once again knew it was ok to be a dog and to play and have fun and to be spoiled everyday day of your life..and when you left this world for your new life at the bridge, you left with that smile on your face and your mommy right in front of you telling you what a wonderful puppy you were and how much we loved you!!! so that is my gratitude today in my grief that I got to know that you knew you were loved and that humans can be good..we love you our little old lady doggy....
16 days you have been gone from us and we miss you so much..like your sister Maddie we hardly knew you were on the place but man the hole youhave left in our hearts. We love you Old Girl now and forever more...long may you run healthy and free in the beautiful meadows of heaven.
My beautiful old white faced lady dog....I will always cherish the memory of how everytime I looked at you ...it literally looked like you had a smile on your face...one thing for sure and one thing for certain you brought alot of smiles and joy to our lives...we love forever and always
My beautiful Old Girl it is hard to believe that Saturday will be one month since you left us for heaven..we miss you I never round the corner to the foyer that I don't look for you in "your spot", the funny thing is not one of the others will lay there..it was and always will be "your spot"..love you forever and ever more
As I sit here looking at your picture I can see so clearly what a difference love can make in one's life...from the first time I saw you at that shelter to the last time I looked in your eyes what an amazing transformation..the love that we give is free but the rewards are priceless .... you my precious white faced lady were one of those gifts that no amount of money can or will ever buy..we love you always and forever....
Happy LAbor Day weekend my precious angel, we miss you so much everyday. It has been a hard week, so many lost and alone...so many..I wish I could save them all!!
I will always remember you ... my white-faced lady dog...the love we shared and the bond of trust you were able to give to us will always amaze me even after all the betrayal you lived thru..you loved us and gave us your trust...we will forever be grateful for that
Devotion....that is a word that I would use to describe you, I wonder how devoted you were in your younger days .... to your other parents before they passed...I cannot believe that someone would just "throw" u away like they did...but thank goodness for that old saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure"....YES my girl you were our TREASURE in every sense of the word!! We love and miss you always
It is getting chilly here now .. your kind of weather is coming my precious...we miss you today and always
I feel so blessed to have been able to have let you know that love is a real thing ... and that there are those who show kindness...you never deserved the hurt and the pain or the abandonment you had in your early life...you were an angel...always we are grateful to have known you
My beautiful baby girl, mommy has left your candle for the service tonight ... I love you forever and always
Sometimes I sit and think of how different your life would have been if we would have had the joy of having you all your life...but I guess that wasn't in God's plan...thank you for the three years we were able to call you ours, you gave so much more to us than we could ever give to you!!! Always in our hearts our precious angel
I am simply BLESSED to have had the pleasure of your love...we miss you lots my sweet angel
XOXOXOXOXOXO forever my angel!!
My beautiful white faced lady I have left your candle for the service tonight, today I am grateful and so very thankful that I know you had that "second chance" that each of you beautiful ones deserve. No matter how many years or how many rescues I am apart of, how many happy endings, sad endings or just endings I will never understand the logic that some can create when describing why they gave you each up, or hurt any of you beautiful souls...it is just plain evil in my opinion. Today I received a letter for two beautiful souls that their "MOM" LOL if one could say that precious word when refering to this person, was giving them up because she was getting ready to have a child and she didn't have enough room in her heart for them. MY eternal question to that is what happens if she has another child will she have room for two of them??? I love you my angel and am grateful to have known your love.
My beautiful angel baby, Beasley has come to join you at the bridge, he left us yesterday he was so sick his body just couldn't do it anymore. Although he wasn't mine I will always hold a place close in my heart for my old pal, gather all the others and show him how wonderful it is in the new land of perfect health and youth always. I love you my special angel always and forever
My little old lady, I miss you so much, today as I sit by the computer and the sun shines thru the blinds I can't help but think of you and how beautiful that picture of you was in your chair (your tombstone picture now) in daddy's office. It was like the light of heaven was shining down on you, and now my precious girl you are shining your light of heaven down upon all of us...I can feel you just as strong as I feel the sunshine on my face right now. Always and forever, our precious angel girl.
Sometimes life is tough baby girl, but when I think of this I think of those like you and our precious Belinda who went thru God only knows what and still came to trust again...sometimes it is overwhelming so many out there in need, and sometimes (most times actually) I see the way people look at me and "all my dogs" but it is where I am most happy...with my dogs..they never disrespect me or treat me badly, or think it is funny to hurt someone else or have no regard for others...humans sometimes disappoint (most times actually) but you ...all you wanted was love, and I am glad that I was able to be there for you..
I sit here and try to be mad but I chuckle instead, your brother Turbo just brought my new cell phone to me, with two teeth marks in it LOL...you and all the others have helped me gather composure that I don't think I would have. After all you each were only puppies with puppy minds. I love you my sweet girl and I miss you, as it gets colder I think of you so often and how you loved to go out when the weather was cold. I love you my precious angel always and forever.
I have left your candle for the service tonight...I will be thinking of you my precious angel and all the others who have gone on before you...sending you light and love to heaven
It seems like yesterday that you were laying in the floor watching us and moving around to the other sitting room,roaming free..like you were meant to be...I am just so very glad that we were able to allow to you to spend the ending of your life here in a happy and loved home...you will forever more be our "old white-faced girl" we love you
It is cold here a little snow this morning not much, we were talking about you and how we know you would have gone in and out a thousand times...oh how you loved the snow, you always had a look it was a big smile...we miss u angel baby.
My beautiful Old Girl I hope you had a great Christmas in heaven, we missed you my sweet girl, always will!!!
Another saved baby a yellow lab is going to a wonderful rescue, poor baby was left outside just like you but thank goodness a good network of human angels have helped us once again.
I love you always
My beautiful old lady today I got an email from Willie's (the Britney Spaniel) who you helped us guide to his new home) new mommy telling us how wonderful he is and how spoiled he is and how very happy he is....everytime I get an update on one of these beautiful babies I was blessed to know even for a short time I think of you and how blessed we were that you came to us and that we had almost three wonderful years with you. Many kisses all the way to heaven baby, we love you always and forever.
My beautiful girl send light and love down to us tomorrow as we start the journey of another precious one going to it's new forever home. We love you and miss you so.
Our first Spring without you is fastly approaching...I will always love you my baby girl and on these snowy days I think of you fondly and how you loved the snow.
My beautiful love I miss you alot, send your love to your brother Buddy his legs are failing fast ... this is the part that is the hardest ... the beginning of the end of their journey here, the one saving grace is that I KNOW that you are all together and are healthy and anew in heaven watching over each of us each and everyday here.
Mommy had to ERASE for the 1st time today so I could write more to you. My dear Old Girl each time I have to erase from your residencies I think of it as more time that has gone by since I got to see your face. I love you Old Girl always and forever.
Some days are so hard when I look at Lucky, she is the only one here that has watched each of you come to us and live the "good life" then leave us ionce again for heaven. I wonder at times what must she think? I love you Old Girl and I will forever be grateful that you were ours even if it was for such a short time. Send your love and light down as I make my way to help another find it's forever home tomorrow.
I love you always!!
Yesterday we homed a beautiful Belgien Malonois, another saved and on her way. SHe was such a joy to me and such a good baby. I have come to the conclusion in my 50th year of life that animals are the key to my happiness. They have never dissappointed me and the loyalty I think that is the most amazing thing for me to see. They have a loyalty in their hearts that I have come to the conclusion that a human cannot master. This is why I am much more comfortable with animals than humans. Which I am finding more and more not such a bad thing. I come this morning to once again say,"thank you" for your trust. If any dog deserved to not trust it was you and your precious sister Belinda but my friends you did anyway. How precious is that gift...no human will ever know how honored I feel to have been allowed to sneak into your heart, even after all the hell you faced you believed in me and I in you and it gave me more than you will ever know. I love and miss you my precious white-faced angel.
My beautiful girl the weather is getting cold here and I know how you would have loved the first big snow. Daddy and I both thought alot about you and Maddie Girl you both loved the snow it seemed as though youth came back to your soul each winter...I miss you always and I was most blessed to have you.
YOur Christmas tree is up now my precious angel. I love looking at the photos..and at the same time it is sad that you aren't here to enjoy it. BUT it is put up in "your spot"...I love you always and forever
