There's no place that far...

I first want to apologize for the music that came on when you came here today...but it's in honor of Spooky. It was the first song I heard after Spooky died. She would have been 12 years old tomorrow, but Matt and I lost her in February. After we left the vet's that day I had to pick up a blanket for Lester- the tack shop was near the vet's and that was the plan (I didn't know I would be putting her to sleep that day). When I walked into the store this song, by Sara Evans was playing and was in it's main chorus, "If I had to run, if I had to crawl, If I had to swim a hundred rivers, just to climb a thousand walls,Always know that I will find a way, to get to where you are,Theres no place that far"


There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her and wish she was still here. I long to feel her furry rested head on my shoulder at every red light I come to.

I have never loved a dog so much and don't plan to again, if I can help it. I'm weird like that.

I miss you, my one and only "Heart" dog.

Another beautiful tribute for Spooky. I know exactly how you feel... just wanting to touch Travis again. To feel his fur. To hold his head in my hands. To run one more agility course. To pinch those cute furry hams. To throw his bumper. To take one more picture of that beautiful dog.

I suppose that the more painful the loss, the more wonderful and meaningful the time spent was.

Spooky, and your love for her, prompted me to fall in love with a black dog. Thank you, Spooky...thank you, Denise.

Everytime I read about heart dogs going to heaven, I cherish every moment with mine even more.

Sorry about your Spooky. It's so sad to lose your best dog. I feel the same way about my black lab Jake, even though I lost him a few years ago, he was the best and can never be replaced. Beautiful picture of her to cherish.

Awww...how sweet. It is awful to lose an animal, because they really are just like people in our lives. What a beautiful drawing of her for you to always treasure. :)


PS-How is Stacker and Peanut's relationship coming along?

No need to apologize. What a lovely song in tribute of her your beloved Spooky.

Your love for your special Heart dog touched my heart today :)

Hey D, hope you're doing okay. This must be a tough day for you.

I have the most perfect quote for you - found it in a book I have been really into lately. Since I finished it, I don't have it with me now - but maybe can get to it tonight.

I really think you'll like it. I thought of you when I read it.

Just wanted to let you know I posted that quote to my blog...
