To Ollie, my Aunt and Uncle

To Ollie, my Aunt and Uncle

There were so many things I could write about today. I’m going to my doctor for an actual neurological check up. But my heart is still heavy because over the last week, two people who are very big dog lovers like me, had to say goodbye to their dog. I wrote about the one last week who is my blogging friend. This week it was my Aunt and Uncle who said goodbye to Ollie. Let me first explain my relationship…

Thank you for Minx

Thank you for Minx

I want to thank all my family and friends who helped me get Minx. It is always devastating losing a dog and the passing of my Marshmallow was exactly that. Marshmallow was my shadow for 11 years and losing him left a very big whole in my heart. Looking for puppies actually was the one thing that helped. I knew I would never find another Marshmallow , but I knew I wanted another dog. I jumped around from breed to…

Happy Birthday Zoey

Happy Birthday Zoey

It is Zoey’s fourth birthday. She received all new Nylabones for her birthday and she was pretty happy. Zoey is my first and only girl dog. She has the sweetest temperament and is adored by everyone. Plus she is adorable. I realized today that she is the only dog who has been with every one of my dogs even if briefly. She came the week before my Boomer passed. He was the only one not fond of her so I…

A picture wall for Marshy

A picture wall for Marshy

Last night Minx got in my closet and walked out with one of my shoes. The shoe probably weighed half as much as he did. It made me think of my Marshmallow who used to greet me at the door and would always grab one of my shoes. In my apartment I had steps. we were constantly looking for one of my shoes before I went out. There was always one downstairs and one upstairs. If there were no available…

Invest in your best friend

Invest in your best friend

My dad sent me an article about “best friend investments”. It wasn’t talking about human relationships. The article was literally about investing in pet related stocks. They gave a numerical figure, “in the US pet products are a $95.7 billion dollars industry.” I didn’t find that shocking. All I have to do is look around my house to comprehend that figure. However my favorite line was; “pets are making the transition from luxuries to necessities.” I don’t know if I…

Attitude Gratitude reminder from my sister

Attitude Gratitude reminder from my sister

My mood has been dark lately. I miss my dog. I feel alone. It’s been a tough couple of weeks. I received  an email yesterday, which was actually my sister’s newsletter. It was entitled Attitude and Gratitude. At the top of the email it actually said thanks Jamie. Truthfully when I first saw it I really thought she personalized it just for me. I honestly thought that even though it was her newsletter, for her business, that the subject matter…

Feeling Lonely

Feeling Lonely

I have something to admit it. You might see it as slightly pathetic. I see it as a loss. I feel very lonely since Marshmallow died. I didn’t even realize what I was feeling until my daughter left for the night and came back. It wasn’t because she was gone, as silly as it sounds, it’s when she came home. My Zoey missed her and wanted to be with her. So she spent time with my daughter, so sweet. I…

Marshmallow came home

Marshmallow came home

His ashes came separate from his urn. A meltdown. I knew that this error would make the process of getting his ashes emotionally more difficult. I was correct. Years ago, when I lost Boomer, I never saw his ashes. https://multipleexperiences.org/2017/01/04/boomer-came-home/. The urn was closed and I still have no idea how to even open the box. I didn’t know what to expect. It wasn’t ashes. It was like gravel and small rock like pebbles.  Jusr holding that in my…

In loving memory of Marshmallow

In loving memory of Marshmallow

I don’t really know what to write. My heart is so heavy from the loss of my Marshmallow. I’ve stopped crying spontaneously but my heart hurts so much. Going to bed is the hardest part. Marshy was my one dog that ALWAYS slept touching me. Normally he slept under the blankets by my feet. As he got warm under there he’d come out and sleep on the blankets at my feet. This back and forth would go on all night…

Words of support from other dog lovers

Words of support from other dog lovers

I belong to three Facebook groups for dogs. One of them is English bulldogs and two are for French bulldogs. Anytime I see something posted about someone losing a dog, I always try to write. I completely understand and remember the pain of losing Boomer, my English Bulldog, over 3 years ago. When I lost my Marshmallow I posted it on one of the sites. I never realized how much those posts could actually bring a little comfort until it…
