Hello Dogster friends,
It's been a long time. Four years ago on Wed, I lost my best friend. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. You Dogster friends really helped me through that time. Today, my sister lost her cat Wonton of 19 1/2 years. She was so sad. I really feel for her. No one should go through what we have gone through but its a fact of life. Still, it's such a horrible thing to go through. For a while, I wondered if it was really worth it. I mean, setting yourself up for a HUGE loss. My answer? Yes, it is worth it because even though its such a short time, those furry friends give us so much love and devotion. It is worth it.
Send good thoughts my sister's way. She could use it. I've encouraged her to get on Catster and get the support that I got here. I hope she has solace in knowing that Simon will be waiting for his cousin...at the Rainbow Bridge.
Clive, Simon (& Judd's) Dad...

Hi Dogster friends. Wow, its been a long time. 2 years since Simon died. Jim, Judd and I are doing great. We've created a wonderful life for ourselves and we are showering Judd with attention and love. John Denver music is forever etched in my mind as it reminds me of the summer of 2009; the summer I went through this terrible experience when Simon was dying.
We have gone to Ft Funston twice now on Aug 28th, in 2010 and 2011. We plan to do it every year and set a rose by the cliffs to celebrate Simon's life.
He will be forever in my heart. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him. I don't think I will ever be the same. I think a part of you dies when you lose a dear friend such as him.
Anyway, from time to time, I'll write in here and let y'all know how we are and we are fine!

Wow, its been almost three months since I wrote in Simon's diary, but here we are.
I just wrote in Geoff's (Abby's dad) diary and it made me think to do this.
I think about Simon every day. I miss him tremendously. We love Judd, our new baby. He is seven months old now. I never want to take him for granted as, in retrospect, I feel I sometimes took Simon for granted. I even feel some guilt in getting Judd like I've betrayed Simon. I know that's silly...
We've been doing well. We love Judd to death. He is the cutest, most loving dog. I even show him Simon's urn and tell him this is your uncle Simon; we loved him very much. I know it sounds crazy, but I think Judd understands this. I had a dream about Simon a few weeks ago. Many people tell me this happens and I'm so glad it finally did. He looked very regal, a glow about him. He looked like Aslan from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, if anyone has seen it. Like a lion. He looked beautiful.
Was this just a dream or a visit from my boy?
