3/24/08 Lady, we stroked your head & ears, telling you we love you as we released you to heaven. We could not allow you to suffer.|
We buried you between 2 trees on a hill with your blanket & some treats. I know you picked up your favorite toy when we left it. Daddy put a stone curbing around your resting place. I hope you're enjoying the red streamers in the trees.
Lady our wonderful baby if we ever failed you in any way, please forgive us.
You came into our lives at about 3 years old. You were so excited to get a new mom & dad. We were just as excited. You knew just what to do to fit into the family, you immediately grabbed our hearts & just loved us. Thank you so much.
We named you Lady Blue Eyes as you acted so dignified & refined. Daddy said you have the most beautiful eyes except for mommy's of course.
Lady there are so many memories of you:
THANK YOU Lady, for teaching us about patience, faith, naps, gentleness & unconditional love.
Lady, thank you for leading Snowflake to us.
Lady until we meet again at Rainbow Bridge to cross into heaven together play with Bandit, King, Prince, Baron, Duke & all the rest of our Bridge family. I know you're healthy again so run, play, lay in the sunshine my sweet girl.
Lady stay close to us & help us through the rough times. Please stay close to the rest of your pack. They miss you also. Stay especially close to Nicki as I am concerned about her age & weight loss.
Lady also please send some loving kisses to the angel who made this tribute to you possible. I can not think of a better way to repay her than your kisses.
12/20/08 Lady I so miss those beautiful blue eyes, stroking those black velvet ears & hugging you so tight. I keep looking for you to help momma decorate, bake & wrap presents. You sang along with the music while supervising all the holiday preparations. Oh how I miss that.
12/23 Lady, we ended up undecorating & redecorating the tree as some of the lights wouldn't work that worked when we put them on it. Daddy had to go get new lights. Was this your way of letting us know you're near?
12/23 Lady, Aunt Tina & the whole gang came to visit. Yes, Courtney too. They brought me a small stuffed Husky baby dressed for winter. Lady is that what you looked like as a baby? Is this your way of telling me you're always with me?
12/24 Lady it's Christmas Eve & 9 months since we released you. Lady, it seems like forever. Momma still cries when she thinks of you. We talked of you yesterday & looked at a few photos. We all miss you so much. I am trying so much to make this a special Christmas but it is hard as we are missing you.
12/25 Lady, our 1st Christmas without you & we're missing you so much. I saw a very bright star last night. I know that was you sending us your love. Lady I know you heard me wish you a joyous celebration. Did you see the video that Gabby & Mahm made with your gorgeous rainbow wings? You look so serene & beautiful. I know you're whole, healthy & pain free while celebrating this very special day. Please stay close to us baby girl. Merry Christmas, darling girl. WE LOVE YOU!

1/15 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LADY! Hope you have a great one. Today we wish for you: a long ride, LOTS of ball playing, time to play with your favorite toy, lots of extra biscuits, all the apple pie & chocolate birthday cake you can eat.
