Ty was our precious sweet boy. He was so smart, loving and such a protector. He loved walking..everyday first thing in the morning and the last thing every evening. As the years crept up, our evening walks were assisted with his little red wagon. We hurt so badly now that he is gone. Our lives are empty and broken. At least I know he is whole, happy, and playing and running at Rainbow Bridge, without pain,|
We love you and miss you Ty.. always will.
October 16, 2016 - Hi my sweet boy. Your dad and I have had a bad week without you. It does not seem possible that you have already been gone for a week today. We picked up your earthly remains Friday, with a sprig of your beautiful hair, and a sweet paw print. Those paws that I have kissed so many times...now just a print on a card. I put together an album of so many of your pictures today. You loved posing for pictures, or tolerated your mom taking them. Whichever it was...we have so many great memories and pictures of you, our sweet, sweet man.
October 21, 2016 Well, it's almost been two weeks sweet Ty pup. It's Friday...and that was always our time to go on an extra long walk and enjoy the beautiful evenings...I miss our walks so badly I can't stand it. I tried walking...without you, but all I did was cry. So, that didn't work too well. I went to see Mandy today, and to thank her for always taking such exceptional care of you when she groomed you. She knew all your aches and pains and took such great care of you. She started crying as soon as she saw me and we just hugged and cried for you. I took her two pictures of you. A before and after grooming picture, they were so cute. I keep thinking this pain has got to ease for me and your daddy...but not yet. I see him just staring at your picture and remembering all the times you two would "talk" to each other. That was so cute.
November 4, 2016. It's a new month and in 5 days you will have been gone for a whole month...it still does not seem possible that I will never see you again, never hear you bark "fuss" at me, go for rides in your wagon. Your daddy and I have not touched your wagon. We can not seem to move it...that was your special little chariot. My heart just aches. I do pretty good during the day. I have many pictures of you around my office. Coming home is the hard part. I have not made it through one night without shedding many tears. I miss coming home....and you were just standing in the entry hall so you could see both doors. Then you would run to the couch, and I would lift you up since you could no longer jump. Then I would lay down and you would walk up my body and we would have our "love fest". Your sweet "sniffy" kisses were so precious. Then once you were through loving me...then you would fuss, especially if I was later than usual. We never figured out how you knew when we were home. Your eye sight was so bad, and your hearing was worse. Somehow you always knew when we were coming though and you stood so patiently waiting for the door to open.
December 5, 2016 Hello our sweet Ty. Thanksgiving has passed and now Christmas draws near. I still have the funny pics of you looking for your present under the tree last year. You could "smell" it and knew it was there somewhere. I would say that I wish we would have known that was our last Christmas with you...but it would have only made it sad. We loved you so much, there is nothing different we could have done. You always received all of our love and attention. You were so perfect in every single way. We couldn't stand the silence without you, so Daddy adopted us a little guy. We have named him Bennett...but we have not, nor will you ever be forgotten. We have pictures up of you everywhere, we had a cuddle cloan made of you that is soooo very good. We love you and miss you so much, but Bennett helps us with the pain, and licks our tears away. It's as if he somehow knows our hearts are broken and he constantly tries to make us laugh. We tell him about you and how good and how smart you were. I would say that you would like him...but you never liked mommy and daddy paying attention to dogs....but we still love you and miss you and no other furbaby will replace you. I love you Ty man, mommy.
December 9, 2016 Hi again sweet Ty. We have your beautiful face on our computer as the screen saver. I come in here and just look at it, touch it...and wish I were touching your beautiful, soft face. On my goodness how my heart still aches for you. I still look at all the places you used to lay, and picture you sleeping quietly. I miss our quiet, slow, peaceful walks so much. You loved walking, but it was at a much slower pace...then when you would give out, I would lift you into your wagon and we would continue on. I know I am repeating myself...but writing to you just makes me feel a little closer to you. I really do not like the distance, but I know you are watching me and waiting for me to come see you at Rainbow Bridge.... I do not know who will run faster when that day comes...me or you. But I can't wait to hold you, and feel your soft fur and kiss you again.
December 22, 2016 MERRY CHRISTMAS BY BABY BOY!!! Wow, first Christmas without you in 15 years. There is such an emptiness without you baby. I still remember how you dug through all the packages under the tree last year because you could "smell" your gift....it was so cute watching you find it and waiting for me to unwrap it. If I had only known then that was our last Christmas you would have had so many new toys and treats.... and I would have taken you on nightly rides in the car, and let you hang out the window and let the wind blow back your sweet ears....just like the picture I posted on your gravestone. You were so happy when you were in my lap, I was driving and you would hang out the window.
January 3, 2017 Happy New Years at Rainbow Bridge my handsome Ty man. We had a quiet NY's eve, as usual, we didn't want to be out with all the drunk crazies!! This year I didn't have to worry about the fireworks going off and scaring you though....I knew you were safe from loud frightening noises and having a quiet beautiful time. I have set up a memorial for you and Precious in the living room. I have pictures of each of you, your remains and the paw print and claw print.... I sit and look at them every single day and remember all the fun we used to have. How you used to drive Precious crazy barking at him! Now hopefully you two are getting along beautifully at Rainbow Bridge. Please tell Precious, Alexander and Brit hello from me...I still miss you so much my gorgeous man. I love you always, Mom

February 25, 2017 Hi Sweet baby. Our calendar is pictures of you. The one for February is you in the back yard fussing at me. I was watering and you were wanting me to spray you with the water hose. It is so cute. Your little face up in the air and you were just telling me off.... It has only been 4 months since you left.... I swear it feels like years since I have seen you, held you, smelled your sweet fur. I just wanted to drop you a quick line. I still miss you so terribly much.
Hi my handsome Ty Ty. It's been awhile. It is May 15th and the months are flying by. But as fast as they seem to be going...you have only been gone for 7 months. I still miss you as bad as the day you left. The only comfort I have is knowing that you are no longer in pain, no more arthritis, and you can run and jump again. I can't wait to see you Ty..... you are my heart and soul..... forever and always.
Hello Handsome..... It is June 10th, yesterday marked the 8th month since you left us. The pain is easing....but the loss is still insufferable. I have your pictures everywhere in the house and my office. We miss you so badly still. You were such a wonderful, sweet soul. I really don't think there has been a day go by that me or your daddy do not bring up something you used to do, or something we miss about you. What I wouldn't give for one of your sniffy kisses right now by sweet boy. Hopefully you and Alex and Precious are all having a wonderful time being whole and healthy again. Someday my love....momma will call for you at Rainbow Bridge and I can not wait to see you RUN again.
Hello Ty Man....well it is the one day of the year you really did not like.... July 4th! You were terrified of the loud fireworks, then when you lost your hearing....the smell and vibration would scare you. I miss you so much, but for tonight I am really glad you are at Rainbow Bridge and not terrified and shaking in my arms. I always felt so helpless not being able to calm you. You were so brave and tough...until the 4th of July. Bless your sweet heart tonight it is peaceful and calm and beautiful where you are and I am so very glad for that. But I still hurt for you, my beautiful man.
