I’m a dog person

I’m a dog person

My mother and stepdad aren’t animal people. They don’t dislike them but neither of them grew up with animals so they never wanted one. I was only allowed fish when I was younger. Imagine the horror when I came home with a bunny my senior year of college. Let’s just say the bunny ended up at a pet store before I moved back home. Within a month of me moving into my first apartment I ended up with 2 cats….

I miss you

I miss you

He was a dog. He was my first dog. He wasn’t here yesterday to celebrate Marshy’s 8 birthday and I missed him. He will never be replaced. No dog can ever be him. I want to kiss his head one more time. I want to hug him around the neck, tell him how much I love him. He is missed. He will always be missed. There will never be another Boomer. That’s all I felt like saying today.

Life with a new puppy

Life with a new puppy

Okay I have to write about the puppy.  Meet Zoey… Zoey has been with us for one month tomorrow.  For anyone who hasn’t read my blog, she came to us one week before my beloved Boomer died un expectantly.

I don’t know when I moved to a standard chain as a collar or started using the leash alone as a collar, but I know it was for the majority of his life. We’d only put the chain on him when he’d go out for a walk, otherwise…

I had a very beautiful  Course of Miracles lesson today: By grace I live, by grace I am released By grace I give, by grace I will release Today my sister is having a memorial for my deceased dog Boomer. My sister, mom and step dad don’t really love animals. They understand that I love my dogs and they all understood how my heart broke when Boomer died. As my sister said it, my soul…

I’m thankful for Boomer

I’m thankful for Boomer

Yesterday was a little better than the day before. Today my heart just feels very heavy. My sister said something to me when she first heard that was very profound and meant the most to me, “you connect with the souls of animals. The friendship and companionship you find in them is as deep as some of my human friends.” I never had many friends but I’ve had many pets. I’ve had rabbits, 6 cats and 3 dogs. I would…
