Memories of Tiffany
*****"God made perfect dogs for imperfect humans, so that we might have an earthly source of unconditional lood took a bit of His own wonderous love, wrapped it in fur, and gave you to us so that our lives could be richer and deeper than they ever would have been without you."*****

*****"PERHAPS THEY ARE NOT STARS IN THE SKY, but rather openings where our Loved ones Shine down to let Us know they are HAPPY"....*****

*****"A Heart of gold stopped beating, A wagging tail now rests, God broke our hearts to prove, He only takes the Best..God knows you had to leave us..But you did not go alone..For part of us went with you..The day He took you home"....******

*****"I often sit and think about the years that have passed by, and the Happiness and Joy, that was so often shared by you and I..I think of all the laughter you gave and all of the fun.. Then before I know it my tears have once again begun. For, although it brings me comfort to walk down memory lane...It reminds me how, without you, Life has never been the same"..****

***************May your wings Glisten as you fly with all of the other Beautiful Angels.. So Fly high Tiffy..Fly Free..*************

Dogs are a special gift from God and are truly our best friends..
When God had made the earth and sky,
The flowers and the trees.
He then made all the animals,
The fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished,
Not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine,
And give each one a name."
And so He traveled far and wide
And everywhere He went,
A little creature followed Him
Until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
And in the sky and sea,
The little creature said, "Dear Lord,
There's not one left for me."
Kindly the Father said to him,
"I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
And called you dog, my friend."
"Dog Pennies from Heaven"..
I found a Penny today, just laying on the ground.
But it's not just a Penny, this little coin I've found.
Found Pennies come from Heaven, That's what my Grandpa used to say.
He said" Angel Dogs" toss them down.
Oh how I loved that story.
He said "When an Angel Dog misses you, he tosses a Penny down,
Sometimes just to cheer you up, to make a smile out of your frown"
So don't pass by that Penny, When you're feeling blue.
It may be a Penny from Heaven, That your Angel Dog has tossed to you..****************************************************

My Sweet Tiffany,
It has been a little over a year since I have been able to hold you, bury my nose in your soft fur or see your little face. On the day you made your journey, I wasn't able to say Good-bye. For just the short time I left the house , You went to sleep for the lasttime. At that time, God reached down and picked you up and said " I welcome you" You had lost your final battle with Cancer. I am so very sorry you had this terrible sickness. You were the sweetest Angel , a true gift from Heaven. You never let me know how sick you really were, you were always wagging your tail right to the very end. I believe that you waited for me to come home from my hospital stay, so we could spend your last few days together. I remember being so worried you would leave before I was able to come home. You didn't, we had our last few days. I miss you sweet girl. On July 18th, 2011 my heart was crushed. I knew that you could no longer stay. Your little body was so tired. I knew it was time. Timeline for you to make the journey. I remember holding you for a long time. Crying,and saying good-bye to your now lifeless body. Then Dad and I took you out to where your little body would rest Forever. We have created a ``Memory garden here for you, which for as long as I am able, I will continue to keep beautiful. It is our tribute to you Tiffany.
I have also created a page for you on the Rainbow Bridge web site. Where everyday and night I leave you a note. This makes me feel close to you. I can talk to you like I had done Thousands of times through the years.
There are times when I close my eyes and I can see you laying on the grass or on the patio. When Ashley goes out to the yard there are times I think you are right by her side just as you were for so many years. Sometimes she will stop and "wait" for you. I know you have visited her. Oh my Sweet Tiffy. You are missed..
You were with me for twelve and a half years, you were my little friend. My little clown. You gave unconditional love. You gave us..Ashley and JJ. I miss you so very much. If Love could have saved you Tiff, you would have lived Forever. I know we will be together again oneday. It is the Rainbow Bridge promise. It is also His promise. I know you will enjoy the beautiful meadows, running and playing just as you did when you were a puppy here, because you are now healthy and young again. Happy and Vibrant. I close my eyes, and I see YOU. Running as fast as your little legs will go.
Ashley and I will be alright Tiff. We miss our girl.. But we help each other everyday.
My selfish heart wishes, but I know you are now in the best place ever. How could I want anything less for my little Angel?
It's time for me to say GOOD-BYE .. Rest in Peace little friend. Wait for us, one day our names will be called to join you. Then we will start Eternity together. Until that she day, I will visit your spot and write to you on your RB page.
I Love you Tiffany and I will never forget you. You will live in my heart Always and Forever....Mom

**Dear God, please hold my baby in your loving arms today and always, and make sure she has lots of fun and is not missing me too much. Knowing you are taking care of her brings me peace and lightens my heart... Love you My Tiff Tiff...**********

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying. You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair,
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be so near you everyday,
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew,
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand together, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see,
But be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

I love you my sweet Tiffany..That will never change..Run free & fly high baby girl..Be well ..Mom

04/17/2015 For My sweet Ashley Bean..

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over...
Dancing in the Sky
Tell me, what does it look like in heaven?
Is it peaceful is it free like they say?
Does the sun shine bright forever?
Have your fears and your pain gone away?

Cause here on earth it feels like everything good is missing, since you
And here on earth everything thing's different, there's an emptiness

Oh-oh-oh I, I hope you're dancing in the sky
I hope your singing in the angels choir
And I hope the angels, know what they have
I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived

Now tell me, what do you do up in heaven?
Are your days filled with love and light?
Is there music? Is there art and invention?
Tell me are you happy? Are you more alive?

Cause here on earth it feels like everything good is missing, since you
And here on earth everything thing's different, there's an emptiness

Oh-oh-oh I, I hope your dancing in the sky
And I hope your singing in the angels choir
And I hope the angels, know what they have
I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived
I Haven't Left At All

I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh;
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I haven't left at all.

On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path I've seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.

At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said it's just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured I'm really there, my spirit's left behind.

I know your heart is hurting; it's like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you won't see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
It's really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heaven's
When I was a small child I use to look up in the sky and wonder where all the souls of dogs and cats went when they crossed over the rainbow bridge. As I grew older I realized that the path on the Rainbow Bridge stretches across to heaven's golden door where all the animals are welcomed into the loving arms of the heavenly angels never again to know pain, abuse or heartache. Tonight as I star gazed I began to notice what appeared to be several bright and twinkling stars however as I looked closer, the sky began to light up brighter and I noticed they were shaped like tiny little paws! So the next time you find yourself wishing upon what appears to be a "shooting star" keep in mind that perhaps that beam of bright light dancing in the sky may indeed be the waggin' of a tail shining down on you to let you know they always there to guide you ❤️

Good morning my sweet Tiffany,
Happy Thursday. Here we are already in mid April it's hard to believe. I'm sure from above you have been watching everything that is going on here. It's really crazy times. It makes me worry a little bit, OK maybe a lot. This is the time unlike we have ever seen before. I think one of the biggest problems is not knowing or not understanding how this is all happening. Dad is still working, I am staying home and in the house. This really isn't anything too unusual considering I don't go out too much. I FaceTime with the girls and the grandbabies as often as I can. Thank goodness we have FaceTime on our phones. So far we're hanging in there. Dad is being careful when he comes home to make sure that he changes his clothes and washes thoroughly. We definitely don't want to get this.
As you know we had to let sweet little Peanut make her journey to the Rainbow 🌈 Bridge. It happened so suddenly. She started eating less and less. And then stopped eating all together only drinking a little bit of water. Then when she stop drinking on that morning I knew she was telling me it was time. I stayed up with her that night before held her in the rocking chair as she slept in my arms.She was the last of our Lhasa family. You are all there waiting for me now. Hold me a place. ❤️ On the morning of March 14, Dad and I made an appointment, to help our little girl make her way to you. I know she had quite a welcoming, as there are so many of you waiting for us. Take care of our little family Tiffany. I know that you are all playing together and so happy to be running free and healthy. I hope Mollie is enjoying all of her new friends too. When I held Peanut that night, I would tell her it's OK to go because I knew after 18 1/2 years she was pretty tired. She would look up at me with those beautiful eyes and then rest her head back down. The house is quieter because we don't hear her Howl any more. She used to have them when dad came home from work as if to say hello. The first few mornings after she was gone, Toby and Bella would go sit near her bedroom door. It's been a month and they're not doing that anymore. Although once in a while I do see them go over there just to take a peek. We brought her ashes home on that Friday following. We moved the memory shelf out of that bedroom and put it in the small hallway by the bathroom. After she was gone I reflected back on each and everyone of you remembering the huge part you each were in our family. We started with your families over 25 years ago and oh what a run we had.
Sue and Kurt are grandparents now. I'm so excited for them. What would we do without our grandbabies? Time moves much too quickly, it keeps going at it's steady pace, making no stops. A new life brings so much hope.
Spring has arrived, although by the weather you almost wouldn't know it. It hasn't been extremely cold except overnight. The temperatures are holding in the high 50s to mid 60s for the most part. Every once in a while we hit a 70. It's probably just me you know how excited I get when summer is getting close. It's our favorite time of year. We won't be seeing peanut laying in the shady areas this year. At least not every day. I know I catch glimpses of you all here and there, at times. Just a glimpse or a fast movement. Sometimes I think I hear you way off in the distance barking. It makes me smile.
Well my sweet girl I guess I better get the day moving. I Toby and Bella are fast asleep on the back of the couch. Margaret is resting in her room which is what she does most of the time. I look up at the sky's at night, to see your stars shining brightly. Each night I look up and tell you all good night and sweet dreams my little ones. I hold each and everyone of you in a special place in my heart. I know your little tails are wagging there. One day we will all be together again. For now this will have to do. Although I don't write to you every day I know you hear me talking to you, constantly. You are my sweet little ballerina, my happy girl, my sweetest Tiffany. I miss you so much. We will be coming up on another Rainbow Bridge anniversary soon. Another reminder of health Time moves so quickly. I miss you my sweet girl. Please give everyone a big hug and a kiss for me. Don't forget our little Mollie too. I will be back to visit and write again, Running play in the beautiful Meadows. I love you forever and ever my sweet girl. Mom
07/18/2020. Well Tiffany, here we are, another anniversary of your Journey to the rainbow bridge. I cannot believe that it has been nine years, since I last held you. Where has the time gone? So many days I think about you. You were my sweet little girl. We were so close, you and I. The day that you left, is still as clear in my mind, as if it were yesterday. If I could turn back time I would've spent my whole morning cuddling you. I had my doctor appointment and in that very short time, you left us. Some days I have a hard time with that, I wish I hadn't gone to my appointment. Ashley was so upset when we got back home. Dad said you waited for me to leave. Maybe so.
I know that you have been in a better place. You don't have to fight cancer anymore, you were made while once more. I miss you my sweet girl I still really miss you. Especially when I'm outside in the yard. I know you would have loved this yard. You always look to help me plant flowers and take care of them. I look around this yard and I try to see places where you would have been laying. A place where you could rest and keep an eye on me. I miss you sweet girl. I hope you're having a wonderful celebration. Give all the Littles a hug for me. So many of you know. One day we will meet again and I will be able to cuddle you forever and ever...You will always be my little Ballerina 🩰.
I love you to the moon and back, now and forever...Mom
