What a Happy Beautiful Boy!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

So Pam, when you asked me if Brownie has sent me a sign. So Brownie passed about three weeks before his 13th birthday. On his birthday I went out to my yard and sent balloons to Rainbow Bridge for Brownie. That night I saw the biggest brightest star shinning over my house. Some say it was Brownies star. And when I saw that star I really felt his presence. 

I do believe Lucky will be sending you signs too.

I saw that you made a post on Rykie's blog.  I know rpthat was so hard to do while you're  in the middle of uoir own grief.

I also noted that it brought you some comfort thinking  about Rulie and Licky find each other at the Bridge and playing and veing happy.

The feeling is comfort uou felt, many of us have felt.    Whether several members  of our tripawd headed to the Bridge in in a matter of weeks, , or one at a time, we KNOW they all find each other and have fun!!

Well, when my Happy Hannah transitioned in April many years ago, several members  also headed to the Bridge...same day...within days, etc.  Like you, we found comfort in knowing they were together. It was truly an Awful April.  But that  brought no comfort, that's for sure!  So we referenced that group as APRIL'S ANGELS.  

Lucky, Reily and Kobalt headed to the Bridge this month.  Mayve you would like to give some thought to May's heroes and what name you would like to call rhat group who went together.  I know Nanxy is considering  March's Saints (when the Saints go marching in), for Brownie's  friends.  She's still working on  that.  When Roane  crossed, Bev said she loved Autumn.   Thus, Autumn's Angels.

Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there.

With love❤

Thank you Sally.  He was such a handsome dog.  His big brown eyes were the warmest, most beautiful eyes that I have ever seen.  His sould was even warmer and brighter.  I miss him so much!

Thank you so much Rene for posting these pictures.  Even though I feel so sad that he is gone, seeing his happy face makes my heart a little happier.  I will definitely be on the lookout for signs from my sweet boy!

Sally, you are so sweet.  We are all so lucky to have you here.  I really am comforted by imagining them all meeting up and becoming friends.  I think about them all running free , no longer slowed down by their earthly bodies, in a huge park with large trees, green grass, blue skies, and sunshine all around.  I know there are tennis balls and squeaky toys and all the treats that they could ever want.  In a way, it makes me feel a bit better to help someone else through this horrible loss.  I will definitely have to think about a fitting name for our sweet tripawd angels who have crossed the bridge in May.  

Thank you again for your support.

And Quincy just headed for the Bridge too.  The welcoming  party all these beautiful  Souls of May were throwing for each other must have been an incredible  celebration of friends feeling healthy and fit and free!  What a celebration!!

Hi everyone,

It's been a week and a half since Lucky has been gone.  It seems like so much longer.  I miss him like crazy but I really do feel better each day.  I don't know how, but one morning last week I just woke up with a sense of peace about everything that happened.  I actually felt guilty that I felt so much better.  I realized that we did absolutely everything that we could to fight the cancer.  I got a beautiful card from a friend of mine and she said "if love could have saved him, I'm sure he would have lived forever".  That sentiment rang so true to my heart.  

Our golden retriever, Indy, has been enjoying all of the extra attention.  We have continued to spoil him!  Leo, our black and white tuxedo cat, who loved Lucky has become so affectionate with me.  I think he sensed that I needed extra love when Lucky passed.  I like to think that Lucky would be happy to see us together since he can't be here with us now.  

We haven't brought Lucky's ashes home yet, and I'm sure that will be difficult.  I had a friend who also recently lost her dog to cancer tell me that they planted a beautiful flower bush and put their dog's ashes there.  She said that she feels like she will always be with them as they watch the bush grow every year.  I think that is a lovely idea.  

I want to thank everyone who has continued to support me through this difficult time.  Words could never express how much it means to me.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful week.

Pam

HI Pam,

I am happy to hear you are feeling more at peace. And the saying on the card you received from your fiend is just beautiful and so true!

Sometimes I feel like Brownie was just here yesterday, and sometimes it feels like it's been forever. But then I realize just because I can't see him, doesn't mean he is not here.

I think the reason you are feeling at peace is because Lucky is still with you and always will be.

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Thanks for checking in Pam, it's good to hear from you. Grief can take some crazy turns but don't ever feel bad about feeling at peace with the decision. That's exactly what Lucky wants for you, there's no better way to honor his spirit. And of course he's glad you have Indy and Leo there to cuddle with! What better way to heal a broken heart than to cover it in fur. 

I'm sorry for your friend's loss too. That's a great idea about planting ashes, I like it too. What a beautiful tribute.

Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing when you get a chance. (((hugs)))
