Hi everypawdy heart

Eurydice’s Mom here.

As a lot of you know, Angel Eurydice is travelling with Pedro, Woody and myself and we are all having the greatest of times together, seeing old and new places, meeting new and old friends (of the two, three and four legged kind) and going on adventures just like we did when my baby girl had not yet earn those gorgeous XXL silver wings of hers.

Eurydice is the happiest Angel in the sky, in fact, she is deliriously happy all day long, what, between playing with all of our gorgeous Angels and travelling with us here on earth, she is of the opinion days should come in a longer than a 24h format!

You, our tripawdian family, have been SO wonderfully supportive during our cancer journey and after my adored baby became an Angel you remained the most steady and close of friends.

Some of you have suggested I should have a book published on Eurydice’s travels and after much consideration I’ve decided to go ahead with that project as a way of honouring Eurydice and hopefully get children to dream with Miss Cow’s adventures and learn from her zest for life. 

So …

I have to choose one small section of her travels as an Angel for this book.

The illustrator has already agreed to create the characters in watercolour and he is no less than …

Andre Kano, the artist me and Eurydice met on Guincho beach in Portugal, the one that did her paw print.

Would you tell me which section you think would be more suitable for the book ?

Which is your favourite and why ?

Your opinion is truly important to me as you are all as close to Miss Cow as myself.

For us, she is not dead, she just took another form and her beautiful, happy, goofy spirit is with us, in our hearts, alongside all of our other Angels. 

Thank you so much for taking the time and helping Angel Eurydice bring happiness and light into other people’s lives.

Sending you an avalanche of kisses and a zillion cuddles to your babies 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

SOOOOOOO EXCITING!!!!!     ABSOLUTELY  DELIGHTED TO HEAR YOU ARE PURSUING THIS BOOK AS A WAY OF BRINGING  EURYDICE’S ENLIGHTENED  WISDOM TO THE WORLD!!!💖💖💖

I cannot even begin to ohantom how to highlight just ONE  small section of her travels that exemplifies her zest for life!   Miss Cow’s whole journal as an Angel should be included!!!   As an example, jjow to we pick jist ONE of the many beautiful  mome ts when Eurydice made her presence know at exactly the same moment  yiu were starting to feel a little sad?  Or right at the same moment when you were thinking about her with a chuckle and she sent a “sign” right then that made you laugh out loud?

O,ay, I’ll TRY to pick  just one….eek….just one will be so hard!   I have a lot of catching up to do with her most recent travels the past week or two.

This will be so much fun to see what stands out in everyone’s  mind as a favorite moment.😄

Thanks for the honour of asking us to participate!  Very sweet😎

Yay! This is going to be a wonderful book!

It will be so hard to pick just one section of her many travels, there were so many sweet, fun times.

For those who are new here, check out all of the posts about Eurydice’s travels and chime in with your favorites:

Eurydice’s travels in Europe 5 months after amputation

Eurydice’s travels in Europe with lung mets 7 1/2 months after amputation

Eurydice’s travels in Europe with further lung mets 9 months after amputation

I think any where she did a lot of interacting with kids and other dogs would be good. Was there one particular part of her journeys where that happened? Maybe you can help point us to the posts that are your top 3 favorites with Eurydice and little ones?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Hey there sweetie pies heart

Thank you SO much for your encouragement and kind words heart

I actually did not make one thing clear, my mistake … the book is based on Angel Eurydice’s travels not her travels when she was physically here.

I just love the idea of hopefully being able to make children dream about this big, goofy dog with three legs and wonderful XXL silver wings, flying from cloud to cloud with the sun reflecting on her happy, happy face and deliriously happy eyes heart

So, if you can look at Angel Eurydice’s travels I will be totally delighted to hear which is your favourite individual story and which one you think will touch children’s hearts heart

I also intend to find a way of sharing whichever revenue may come from this book with Tripawds, as a personal thank you for all the love, advise and support me and Miss Cow were given during our journey.

I am pawsitive Angel Eurydice agrees winker

Sending you all my love and Miss Cow’s 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Teresa,

I can’t pick just one.  I love all of her travels as an Angel.  So for me to narrow it down I can’t do it.  But I would love to see everyone’s ideas.  I can’t wait to see the book when completed.

Maybe if we start with one, it will be the first in a series. That’s where my mind and heart go.

I’m going back to the beginning like I did when I read Nixon’s story and I will read it like a book. 

I’ll try to narrow it down to one, if I can’t then I’ll narrow it down to the favorites, tell you why for each, and let you pick. Deal?

💕💖😎💖💕

Lots of love,

Jackie ❤️❤️❤️

Hi Karen and Jackie 🌸🌻

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm ! 

No worries, sweet Karen, Angel Eurydice is SO pleased you are following our adventures, maybe when we get final options you can give us your opinion on which could be the final choice.

Jackie, that is my thinking too!

If children get excited and touched by one adventure we may maybe, just maybe, get Angel Eurydice to work her magic so there will be more.

Gosh, you are so kind to take the time to look at everything and pass your suggestions on… 

Please do publish your thoughts here so hopefully they can be shared with others. 

I am beyond excited with this project and Angel Eurydice is beyond herself too!

Sending you both a tornado of hugs and a zillion slobbery kisses from Angel Miss Cow 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Beginning to end, like a book big-blinkI am having the same difficulty trying to point out just one chapter in your book of travels.

There is some magic to so many of the chapters. And my head kept trying to stay in track with “children’s book” and how children could enjoy and benefit from Angel Eurydice’s adventures. She really speaks to all of us, and through you she is vibrant, warm, and funny. My thoughts keep travelling back to your first visit with Tina and Manni. Eurydice spoke to you through Manni. She told Manni that you needed extra love, and he hugged you for her. I really believe that. Manni knew what he was doing heartI love that story all by itself!

And I think of the scary thunderstorms that children are so fearful of… and how my mom used to tell me it was God bowling, lol. Although it’s a funny thought now, that made me feel not scared anymore. Imagine incorporating the thunderstorms as Eurydice, Hannah, Manni, Jerry, Maggie, Sassy, Nitro, etc….  and all of our furbabies that have crossed having the hugest welcome party for the next one to cross over the bridge. Maybe even somehow in their antics.. how they teach the new angels how to do special things, like leaving pennies from heaven. 

Maybe how she helps people that she has met in her travels not to be sad, by them having a dream about her and waking up to a big, wet, slobbery kiss on their cheek. 

Your visits with Tina, the fun times on the beach with such beautiful sunsets, and the beautiful trip through Italy..

Even just the story about how you met Pedro and Woody. How they were her gift from such special friends, and how they became your gift from Eurydice to keep you company and follow you on all of her adventures. She gets them so excited for each new adventure, and when they are excited and happy she bounces from cloud to cloud woofing so happily in her XXL angel wings. 

I know it’s all scattered but spitting it all out there might make it easier to think of your adventures, sort out something that really sticks with you, and then hone it in to something more specific. I guess it all depends on which direction suits you and Eurydice the best. Maybe some of the other’s ideas will help hone it in to something more specific.

Jackie, you really made some great points and picked out some very special moments.

As I’m trying to focus on just a couple of specifics , I definitely  have a common repetative theme.  It’s  when Woody and Pedro visit a place or person  Eurydice visited …..and then she reappears there.   These are some of my favorite  “feelings”……..I feel Miss Cow’s presence …..her energy.

I’ll go back and sight some of the page numbers where these experiences are spelled out.

This is just so darn special!!!😚😙😊

PS…I was told thunder was God rearranging the furniture!!!   Now I know it’s  everyone at the Bridge giving a THUNDEROUS  ovation for every AMPUVERSARY , as well as new arrivals😎

Teresa!! Great!! I’ve been imagining a story book for a long time. I’ll have to think about this for awhile. There are a few things that have touched me:

Eurydice first meeting Pedro and Woody.

Eurydice practicing her flying.

Eurydice’s love for sunsets.

Woody and Pedro in Juliette’s bed.

Eurydice lying down on someone else’ beach towel.

Eurydice lying down so small children can pet her.

Love and hugs to you, Woody and Pedro!!!

Kerren and her lovely Mona and handsome Eli

Hi there Jackie 🌻

THANK YOU so much for your marvellous and very constructive comments 💗

You are so right, Miss Cow’s magic is still here, bless her sweet little heart 💕🐮💕

Yes, that first trip to meet Herr Mani and Tina was really special and for a dog who didn’t like cuddles too much, let alone sleeping by an unknown human, he has really shown his true heart to an auntie in need.

I’m sure that could become a touching story for a child, all the love and support Manni provided and Angel Miss Cow having a little happy cry in the clouds watching the two of us cuddling together. 

And what a fabulous suggestion showing a pawty in the clouds in the form of thunderstorms with all of our Angels present!

Jackie I really like that !!!

That could be incorporated on the chosen section of Angel Eurydice, regardless of what that section might be.

It can come as a closing to the story or be added in between as a happy “side comment” moment. 

And the fact a lot of children are scared of thunderstorms, well, that would just provide a wonderful, wonderful cheerful and fun explanation for it. 

You’ve got another good point when you refer Angel Eurydice’s kindness to humans and the ability she always had (and still has) to erase sadness from people’s hearts and bring them happiness and hope.

The sunsets … ah … the sunsets …

That was always Eurydice’s favourite moment.

She would look at the sun and stay there calm and beautiful, thinking the most wonderful thoughts by my side, my most adored baby girl.

These were the most special moments we both had, moments where we were totally in tune, our hearts were truly one.

As for how we met Pedro and Woody, I’ve got tons of material (videos and photos) of Eurydice opening the presents and welcoming both the penguin and the woodpecker … slobber, slobber …

The amazing thing is if a package was delivered for me she would just hop to the door and give the mailman kisses but would not pay any attention to the package.

BUT she always, always knew when a package had a present for her !!!

I knew it was for her because she would greet the mailman with a super quick hello and get totally excited at the package !

How on earth could she know, it beats me …

I am keeping an open heart as to the direction Angel Eurydice wants to take on this.

With yours and the tripawdian family’s help I am sure we will find the perfect story. 

Thank you again for your precious help, it is truly appreciated!

Sending you an avalanche of hugs and kisses and cuddles 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Hi there Sally 🌸

THANK YOU so much for your lovely comments 💗

You are so right, sweetie, whenever Angel Eurydice pops up is always a very special moment!

And she always arrives unexpectedly, doesn’t she ?

I like your idea!

We should probably consider choosing a section including her as an Angel and as a three legged happy dog in her earth clothes too.

My only proviso is would that be confusing in a child’s mind?

What do you think?

…. …. … …. …. ….

Her presence and her energy is real, she hasn’t but changed form and she is now free to fly wherever she wants, anytime she wants. 

I am sure she has visited you, Frankie and Myrtle countless times, she’d always told me how much she would LOVE to go and visit you (and the tripawdian US members too) the snag was she’d have to be packed up on a cage in the plane 📦✈️.

She did not like that at all.

Well, now that isn’t a problem any more, is it ?

Sending you a tornado of hugs and kisses and zillion cuddles to your sweetie pies 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Hi there Tina 🌼

Yup, Angel Eurydice’s marriage to Herr Manni is a very, very strong possibility in my eyes.

And, of course, that would incorporate beautifully Jackie’s wonderful suggestion of the thunderstorm pawty too!

Including Margueritas and Champagne overflowing 🍹🥂🍹🥂🍹and coming down as a wonderful rain storm, or maybe, ice tea and coca cola for the kid’s version …

We’ll see what everybody thinks, at the moment nothing is cast in stone but as I said I just adore their wedding, what, being a mother in law to the most gorgeous doggie ever Herr Manni Schroder helps!

Sending you an hurricane of kisses and hugs and lots of slobbery Angel kisses from your son and daughter-in-law who, I’m sure are still enjoying their long lasting honey moon 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹
