I've sent Ge'Lena a personal thank you, but I just want to say publicly that I LOVE this tribute to my sweet Daisy girl. I feel the love between us so strongly, and I am grateful to Ge'Lena for taking the time to capture it. You truly have a gift, Ge'Lena, and your willingness to share it makes you an angel. smile


God bless.



Daisy, 12 years young, had left forelimb amp on 5/19/2010 due to osteosarcoma. She left her body behind and joined the other spirit tripawds on 7/16/2010.
So grateful for each day with her!

This is absolutely awesome.  The love for Miss Daisy is so apparent.  The adjustment of not having her physically must be tremendous.

Ge'Lena, I'm almost to the point of not being able to watch your videos.  They are so beautiful, but just absolutley break my heart.  So bittersweet.  It is a wonderful thing you do, giving someone such a beautiful memory.

What a beautiful beautiful soon as the music started with Daisy's picture, I broke down into tears and they're still flowing as I type this.   So touching and moving and I am so sorry, Lexi, for your loss.  Daisy was a beautiful girl and it's so obvious how much love you both had for each other. 

Ge'Lena, you most certainly have a wonderful gift smile.




My sweet golden Mackenzie.  She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2  although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home.  She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009.  She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes.  I love you Mackenzie!

Awww Lexi!  Thank you for letting me do it!  The pictures were so beautiful and just so sweet, I could have added Lady GaGa music and it would have been good! smile

I'm just glad it expressed your feelings!  She was really special and you were really special for giving her almost 2 wonderful years as a senior dog!
