Memories of Chip Roundtree
From: Momma
On: 9/11/11
Hey Little Man, Miss you terribly. Not sleeping at night, listening for your bark to let me know what you want. Tried busying myself with chores but the tears still won't stop. I have rag doll and I keep him with me all the time. I miss you little buddy. Have fun up there with all your new friends.9/11/11
Chip was my Little Man Dog. Even though he was little,he was oh so protective of his Momma. As a puppy and young adult He could not play enough, a ball of energy, He slowed down in the later years,At Christmas he enjoyed opening presents, and every time you walk thru door with a shopping bag he was the first one to investigate. He did not like very many people but was so loyal to the ones he considered his FRIEND. Chip lived to eat. He shared many things with me like our morning bannana, fruit,chips etc. His utmost favorite were animal cookies, then mini carrots.The hurt is still so deep, 9/12/11
Another day without you, today is a week this nightmare started, I miss you little man, If momma could have done anything different to change what happened I would. I stil cant get over the feeling of not being there when you had to leave it tears my heart out. I know now thou you are happy at the rainbow bridge with all your new friends (even kitty cats) to take care of you now, show you whats goin on. I miss that little paw nudge you gave me when you wanted my attention ever so softly. right now I can't see where my life will ever be the same till I see you at the rainbow bridge. Gypsy sends her love she is just like me in missing you. Let her know you are OK so she can wag that tail again. Love you little man.9/13/2011
Everyone says it will take time, I don't know about that my little man,it is so hard not having you here,although today you came home in Spirit. I received your ashes, and the paw print from SVS vet. clinic was so appropiate, i will never forget how you used that little paw just like a childs small hand to get my attention.You will never be forgotten, for your spirit lives on in my heart always & forever. Love Momma 9/14/11
My heart is still aching cannot get my mind off you. I know your love for me goes on & mine for you does for eternity. My only comfort is knowing you are happy, healthy & whole again,playing with all the furbabies I had before you& all the new friends you made at Rainbow Bridge.Momma Loves You Little Man. 9/15/11
Its Momma Little Man,Still thinking about you every minute of day and when I wake at night.Miss You so. Your Gypsy Girl is very sad too, she is just not the same without you. We know we will be with you one day at the rainbow bridge, to run and play again snack on carrots & animal cookies and whatever else.I hope your new friends are keeping your mind off us and home. My heart actually aches I never had this feeling before or just don't remember. Chip you have to take care of us because we are so miserable without you and the house is so EMPYT without the boss here. Hugs & kisses Momma & Gypsy 9/16/11
Hey Little Man, It was Saturday as usual bath day,thought about how much you did not like to take your bath but tolerated it well. Miss you so much Little Buddy. Nobody else barks to talk to me, the only time they bark is outside after something. You filled so much of my life and I am so thankful for all the unconditional love and compassion you showed me those sweet little eyes ever so loving. What a wonderful journey we had those 14 short years.Can't wait til eternity where there will be no goodbyes. Love & Miss you more each day.Kisses Momma 9/17/11
My Little Man,Hope you are getting comfortable in your new home. Our house here is definetly very lonely without you. The days are not getting any better,The nights seem to get longer and longer all because your presense is not felt. Please send us some rainbow signs to send your love and let us know you are ok. It is the unknown that is so hard to accept my little man. Looking at pictures when you were a puppy at 6 weeks old, trying to get thru this with the wonderful love and good memories you left in my heart. Love and Miss you more and more. Momma 9/18/11
Good evening Chip, seems so long since I was here, You know Mondays are always so busy with work and all. Miss you so much, people think I'm losing it, when I say I'm talking to you, but it helps I just know you feel me when I'm here,even tho I talk to you still all thru the day. I pray for you all the time that you are happy and don't miss us too much. I know one day I will be with you and we will never have to be separated. I have another candle ceremony tonight, they are really good. You know you have to help all the new animals cross over and make them comfortable so they won't miss their home either.Know my heart aches to no end and love you still with all me heart.Hugs and Kisses from all of us Gypsy, Anatole, and Fiona. 9/19/11
Hey Little Man, today is my birthday,not so happy with thoughts of you still consuming me, I miss you so much. It is only 12 days since you went to the bridge, I know you are happy in your new home and have many friends I pray all my other dogs were there to welcome you home. Pork Chops, Shorty, Serge, Candy, Poncho, Sugar,Cleo, Boo Boo, Charlie, B-Bop, Bubba,the cocatiels,Pork Chop the pig and Ed & Edna the emus. Just remember I love you forever and ever to the moon and back and can't wait to be re-united with you and everyone. Hugs and kisses from all of us. Momma 9/20/11
Momma's Little Man How I miss you. My heart will never be the same. I play your song,Faithfully the whole while I'm by the computer. I can just see when we meet again at the bridge the joy and happiness we will share.I'm still waiting for a sign from you to know you are happy and ok. I don't know if it will make me stop missing you or thinking about 24/7. but at least I'll know you are happy and saving a place for me and Gypsy. Love you Little Man.Forever & Ever Momma 9/21/11
Another long sad day without you little man. What a ray of sunshine you were to my days, no one will ever know. You kept my life full with all you unconditional love and acceptance,my man. Wish I could just get one more chance to tell you all these things, I long for the day to hold you and snuggle up with the Little Man, who will forever live on in my heart. Miss You so Much.Hugs Momma 9/22/11
Chip my Little Man, It has been 2 long weeks since you left, sure miss my little nudge&bark signaling for a treat or to go outside. I miss all your looks of affection and loving eyes, I only wish I could have been the person you thought I was. Your Gypsy is laying at my feet as I write you, boy does she ever miss you. Some days I just wish we could skip all the time before we see you again and just be with you,but we have to trust God, for He knows what is best for all of us, He could see you getting tired,I couldn't. I thought I would always have you.Please wipe the tears and with each one multiply to the highest and that is how much I miss you and love you. Hugs and More Hugs Momma & Gypsy 9/23/11
HI My Little Man, It is another Saturday dogs didn't get bath today, momma was out better part of day, spent w/Jesus at a women's conference and theme was rainbows and butterflys go figure, I think it was a message from you to me to move on. It was about forgetting the past, of course it means all the hurts i've had in this life and especially the hurt of losing you. I know now after today you are waiting for me at the rainbow bridge and I will see you soon. Love you so much my little man. Hugs and Kisses Momma 9/24/11
It's Momma Little Man Checking in, still another day without your precious love. So empty without you, It is so hard to even smile these days, but I do all for you and the wonderful memory of my best little man ever always there for me. If only I could have been 1/2 of the person you thought I was. I miss you terribly and think of you so often during the day sending prayers to you all the time.I hope you have plenty friends up there I know all the furbabies i had before you were there to welcome you home to wait for me, hold my place for me Chip, I will see you again. All my love and kisses to you my baby.9/25/11 Good Morining Little Man, It is Monday Morning, My heart still aches to hear you bark and for you to paw me, I miss you so much.The void is so deep you were so much a part of me I did not realize the depth of your Love that is why I'm so empty, God will take care of it,He is faithful just like you. I think that is why He sent you to me to show all His qualities and how deep His love is for me.Thank You Little Man for being my everything for all those years & giving me all those God given qualities.will be with you tonight at the candle light ceremony. Love and Kisses Momma 9/26/11.Little Man things will never be the same without you, You left this world and the rainbow bridge got another angel.My heart is so heavy with grief I think about you constantly. You will forever remain a part of my heart, I miss you little man, I know in Christ there are no goodbyes I'm holding on to Jesus for all I have to see you again.I hear you are pain free and carefree up there with all you new friends and that makes me smile and happy for you. Run and play free forever send me a sign chip to let me know you think about me. Love and kisses Momma 9/27/11. Hey Little Man, Just letting you know I miss you and love you so much. This has had to be the worst September I have ever had. Losing you was so devasting, my whole life is just a blur can't get my mind off you.You were the first thing i seen in the morning when I woke up, the routine is so empty without you. The coffee doesn't even taste as good as it used to. Life was so much happier with you in it. I look for you everywhere just to get glimpses of your memory in anything.Momma is so sad, I wish the pain could go away.Love & Kisses Momma & Gypsy.9/28/11. Good Morning Little Man, I miss you so much, I wish I could just hold you one more time, or go back in time to the last time I saw you,(I thought I would see you again)so I kept telling you to fight and be strong.In my mind you would have the disc operation and be all good again, never in my thoughts was it would be the doctor calling and giving me the terrible news, you were all the way in New Orleans 50 miles away . You were under anesthesia and He said he could just put you to sleep,I wanted so much to be with you, but it was best for you that way. You had already been thru so much that week I know you hated being separated from me, was the hardest for you and me.Forgive Momma Little Buddy for the way it ended. If I could change anything I would. Love and Miss You so much.9/29/11. Good Morning Little Man, 3 weeks ago you left for the rainbow bridge, I pray you are so happy and pain free in your new home.Gypsy was looking for you this morning, she is still waiting on the boss to return, amazing how much we miss you of course when I seen her it started me bawling and missing you more than ever, I don't think the pain will leave either of us.Thanks for the help yesterday when I asked for it. I know you are with me in Spirit and I will continue to talk to you, my angel.Love & Hugs Momma & Gypsy.9/30/11. It is Saturday again, another bath day for your sisters. It seems the days are so long now not having to cater to my little man, like I said before you were so much a part of my life, It is so empty now.Chip I know you know how much I miss you,we could communicate that way so Little Man keep me close to you all the time cuz I'm so lonely without you. The sun does not shine as bright and the birds don't sing as sweet since you are no longer by my side.Tears are the only solace I have these days, every one shed is the longing in my herart to see you again, if only in a dream so come sweet Chip to see Momma. I miss & love you very very much. Gypsy too was looking all over for you this a.m.Give her a little smooch.10/01/11.Hey Little Man It is Momma just stopping in to say I love & miss you.
