I remember the first day I met you at the vet. You only weighed 13 pounds and were so terrified that I couldn't bear to let them put you back in your cage. I told them I would foster you and was going to take you home right then and there, and that I'd pay for all of the necessary vaccinations, etc. We came home and I didn't know whether Dulcie would accept you. Within an hour of your arrival, I knew I wouldn't be able to give you up and I sat down with Dulc and told her she would have to accept you. I'll never forget the tomato plant caper...and how angry I was at the time, but how I loved to tell the story to everyone afterwards and how much I laughed about the fact that two small dogs were able to drag a box that I couldn't move into the bedroom and tear it open. I hope you've found Dulcie and the two of you are having fun getting reunited. Most of all I'll always remember the love and companionship you gave me through many difficult days. You were the hope that kept me going. I miss your beautiful face at the window when I leave in the morning and when I come home at night. Daphne and I miss you more than you can imagine. You brought so much happiness to both of us and there's an empty space in both of our hearts. Rest in peace, my precious girl. 7/28/2010 - My precious baby girl, it's hard to believe that you've been gone for six months. You've been on mommy's mind a lot lately. Daphne was so sad without you that I adopted a new friend for her. Gwen is a beagle/basset mix and was abused like you so it's going to take some time for her to be comfortable. Daphne has played with her a little, but not yet like the two of you used to play. Hopefully in time she'll grow to love her the same way she loved you. We both miss you very, very much and hope you and Dulcie are having fun being together again. Daphne and I think about you and send our love to you always. 8/21/2010 - Baby Daisy, you've been on my mind a lot lately and I miss your precious face at the window. It was 12 years ago today I brought you home and you won my heart with your sweet face and disposition. Even though you're no longer physically with me, your spirit and love will always remain in mommy's heart. Daphne and I send our love to you and hope you're doing well. 1/20/2011 - Precious Daisy girl, it's hard to believe it was a year ago today that you left us. Daph and I miss you and I think of you often. A lot has happened since you left. Mommy lost her job and had to move out of the house that you grew up in. But Berta and Greg made sure we had somewhere to live. They bought a place near their house and it's very cozy. I think you would have liked it, altho there are a lot of stairs. Gwen and Daphne are getting along better now and have started to play more. Gwen has become quite a character. She does to Daphne what Daphne used to do to you -- anytime Daphne comes over to cuddle she pushes her out of the way. I guess there is some justice in the world! Daphne and I send you our love every day, but are thinking of you even more today. We hope you and Dulcie are happy and having fun getting reacquainted. Please know that you're always in mommy's thoughts and she misses your precious face. Take care my baby girl -- I love you! 1/20/12 - Daisy Baby, it's hard to believe that it's been two years since you crossed Rainbow Bridge. Mommy thinks of you often and looks forward to the day we'll be together again. Daphne and Gwen are adjusting to each other, but not like you and Daphne. I think it's because Gwen is taking the role Daphne took when it was the two of you and Daph is a little jealous. I try to give her attention, but she wants all my attention, which wouldn't be fair to Gwen. Because Gwen was abused like you were, she is fearful and needs love and reassurance, which Daph doesn't understand. So I do my best to keep both of them happy. I hope you're happy and playing with Dulcie and all your new friends. Please know that mommy thinks of you often and is sending you her love always. 1/20/13 - It's been three years since you crossed Rainbow Bridge and yet it seems like just yesterday that I would see your precious face in the window! Daphne and Gwen are getting along much better and we now have another member of our pack - a cat! I wonder how you would have reacted? Neither Daphne nor Gwen is very happy, but Bella lived with my neighbors and they moved away and left her. I couldn't bear for her to have to fend for herself so I adopted her. Hopefully they'll eventually realize mommy can love all three of them and accept her. Your ashes are in a special place, along with Dulcie's, and I see them first thing every morning and last thing before I go to bed. Mommy misses both of you and while this is your anniversary, I think of you often and hope you and Dulc are happy. Sending you love, hugs and kisses! 1/20/15 - I just realized I didn't post last year. It doesn't mean I wasn't thinking of you - I have your picture in the kitchen where I see it every day. It's hard to believe that it's been five years since I sent you across Rainbow Bridge. Since I last posted we've adopted another cat - Tracey - who was also abandoned. It's become quite a zoo! Bella and Tracey don't get along and Gwen acts as the pet police! :-)Mommy thinks of you often and still misses seeing your precious face at the window when I come home. Love you baby girl! 1/20/16 - Precious baby girl, it's hard to believe that it's been six years since you left. It seems like only yesterday I would see your precious face at the window. They're predicting a blizzard this weekend - it reminds me of the year you crossed Rainbow Bridge. Shortly after you left we had a blizzard and I remember thinking I was glad that you didn't have to go out in that awful weather. Hope you and Dulcie are having fun. Mommy thinks of you often and misses you deeply.|
