Memories of Amethyst Rosebud
Today,January 25 2012, is cloudy and rather dreary looking and I'm feeling really heart broken. The emptiness and grief seem to be rather overwhelming.
Five days ago, I had to let my tiny princess go to heaven. She was so very special to me. Please don't misunderstand, my human family members are special, too. My husband was there for me. He was right by my side with a conforting shoulder. My son and my parents all shared their love and concern.
But, Amethyst was my furry "forever" baby. She was always with me and needed me every day of her life and apparently I needed her too!
She carved a place in my heart for thirteen (13)years, four (4) months and two (2) days. I could tell her anything, I could squeeze her tight, I could watch her be her, I could hold her when she slept, I could let her ride with me or just sit with me when I read.
She wasn't very big only 4 1/2 pounds, but she provided me with a tremendous amount of unconditional love. No matter if I was in my pj's and no makeup on or dressed to the nines, she always loved me.
Yesterday ,Alan and I picked up Amethyst's ashes and oh how it hurt. I have a special urn to place her remains in and I feel comforted a bit to know my baby's remains will forever be close by.
I can hold them to me and feel close to her again even though I know her spirit is gone.
I can't seem to find the exact words to fully express how I ache on the inside. People say it will get easier with time, and I know that it will, but for now it is devastating.

Survived by:
EleanorRose (human mom), Alan (human dad), Christopher (human brother), Sam (furry brother), Rob (furry nephew).
Preceded in death by LEO, DAISY AND TAFFY.

Why the name AMETHYST... I have always felt God made the most beautiful precious gem when he created the amethyst gemstone. My husband's first amethyst gift was my engagement ring, which has a big purple stone in the middle. Through the years he continued giving me amethyst rings, earrings, pendants, etc. Well, thirteen years ago, he was at a loss as to what to give me and he decided on the most adorable bundle of joy.
When I held her for the first time, I realized that she was another precious gem God had created.

Amethyst was one of a kind. She had a passion for coconut. She could never get enough. At night, she looked forward to her 2% milk. Most of the time I wasn't fast enough and she would bark continually until I'd give it to her, in her special dish , of course. (She had me trained well!)After her milk she liked her dad to rub her back.
She liked chick o sticks. I don't know if it was the peanut flavor or the toasted coconut on the outside. Another favorite were yogurt covered pretzels. She would lick all the coating off and sometimes eat the pretzel. I guess she was an italian poodle, because she loved my spaghetti gravy. She didn't care for pasta, just the sauce.
When it was cold she liked her fringe sweater and her tshirts.

I miss her so very much... I sometimes find myself looking for her or reaching for a treat to give her. When I would run errands, she would ride with me. When we traveled, she would go with us. When we lived in Missouri and flew to Texas, she rode with the family in the passenger section of the airplane. The stewardess even gave her snacks.
I hardly ever left her. Even when I was working as a homeschool teacher in Missouri, she would ride to the different student's homes with me. So, it is easy to see why I would be so attached to her. She was my "forever" baby and constant companion.

There is an old belief that the stars shining in the night sky are the spirits of those who have died. They have shed their earthly bodies and exchanged them for bodies made of light; thousands upon thousands of our dear departed friends all promoted to glory in the night sky. There is another saying that the brightest flame burns the shortest.
My friend, you were the brightest star in my own universe. While I burn on, my flame dimmed by grief and despair at your passing, the stars are watching me. They are too far away for me to touch, just as you have gone somewhere I cannot follow until my own star-time comes. They cannot be held close for comfort, just as I can no longer hold you close, though I held you close to comfort you in your final hours. We were together for such a short time, but the stars will burn forever.
One day I will grow tired of this earthbound body, my own star-time will come and my spirit will soar into the sky to burn with all those friends who have gone before me. On the inky cloth of space we will be reunited in constellations of joy. Until then, my flame burns low and dim and cold without you. Through my tears I look upwards to see if you are watching me and what do I see?
There is a new star shining in the sky tonight.

"For you are the one who makes me whole, you've captured my heart and touched my soul. You came into my life and made me complete, each time I see you my heart skips a beat. For you are the one God sent from above, the angel I needed for whom I do love." author unknown
