Hi Friends- I'm back and ready to help "pay it forward"- although John and I are still missing our boys terribly and not yet ready to expand the family again- I am ready to help support others as you all SOOO lovingly supported me.   

Please point me to a couple different threads you all are responding too and I will as well.  I'll go and look for a couple, but I want to follow those that are near and dear to you also.

Much Love to you all such dear virtual friends

Ohhhh Mia that is so sweet and very thoughtful of you to ask like that! It speaks volumes about your warm heart. Charlie and Jojo are so proud.

I know it must be so quiet around your house. When the time is right for you and John, the perfect pooch(es?) will come into your life again. We will be there to celebrate 🙂

Mia, dear sweet Mia, and the dynamic duo of Jojo and Charlie!

I had the privilege and honor to travel with you, John and these spectacular Souls called Jojo and Charlie. And I mean it , it was a privilege, it was an honor. It was aso an opportunity to have so many victory parties; an opportunity for so many reasons to cheer; an opportunity to remind ourselves that, while were worrying about the "what ifs", all that matters to our dogs is owning the couch!

I just went back and re-read every single word...and to relive every emotion...and to smile at every picture of Jojo and Charlie. It's all just as real now as it was then...sad tears...tears of ovations to Charlie and Jojo for loves well done!!!

Mia, you "gave back" by just being you. You "gave back" by showing us what courage and hope look like, how coming from a place of grace has touched us all. Yoir love and devotion to Jojo and Charlie....sooo soul deep....sooo special....soooo touching.

So thank you Jojo and Charlie for allowing us to share your lovely Mia with you.

With love and light

Oh Mia, how oh how did I miss this?? I am so very, very sorry to be seeing this tonight, 2 full months from you losing your sweet Jojo, my tears are non-stop...... I am at a total loss for words right now, so I just want to say that I loved following your journey of both Charlie and Jojo, I know they filled you and your husband's life with pure joy and happiness, and the time will come to share your love with a new pup or two in the future. I will never forget the sweet faces of both your boys, and I know they are both together again over the Bridge with so many beloved pups, including my Lab girls, and so many other Tripawd angels as well...... 🐾💜💜

I am keeping you and John in my thoughts, and sending healing {{{hugs}}}
