Arrival Story: Some people only get to DREAM of angels - I got to hold one in my arms! Her name was Savanna Whispers and this is our story...
I was 19 years old, and it was the first week that I had lived on my own. After work one day, I went to the Humane Society to pick out a new friend, a BEST friend. After looking at, at least 10 to 15 dogs, the employee brought me this poor little, fat, old muffin-head! She walked towards me, circled around in front of me, and sat right close to me where I was kneeling. I figured that no one else would want a fat, old dog....so I would give her love and devotion for her last years. Well, I took her home, and that night, I heard crying. I went out to her, to see if she was okay, and found her having 6 puppies! SIX!!! She was so malnourished in fact, NOT FAT or OLD at all! She was so sick, that 5 of her puppies died! To make a long story short, Savanna turned out, according to the vet, to be only about 1 year old! He fixed her up, and we were on our way! Savanna was my best friend in the whole world. She listened to me, and when I was upset, or had a bad day... All I had to do was hold her and she made everything perfect again. Savanna helped me through losing my Mom, my Brother, and everything else that life threw at us. I don't know what I would have done without her. Savanna passed away on October 14, 2003. I thought my heart would break. I miss her so much, but you know what? I feel her right beside me, all the time. I know that she is never far away, always helping me through tough times, and guiding me in the right direction, just like she always did. I just can't see her, that's the only difference. Savanna was, and still is, the light of my life! I will forever be indebted to her, for all the wonderful things she so unselfishly did for me. That's why I will always go to "rescue". What I got in my 3 furry daughters, has been IRREPLACEABLE GOLD! For anyone thinking about getting a new dog, RESCUE is the way to go! Three out of three times have worked out perfectly for me!
Bio: Savanna was such a sweetheart, that she brought her gentleness and calmness to everyone she met. I used to take her to my former place of employment, to visit the elderly residents that were ill or in failing health. She was always welcomed with lots of kisses and snuggles, and was content just to sit or lay beside them. Savanna was even there when one of our residents passed away from Cancer. She stayed with him, just snuggling him and laying beside him in his hospital bed - until he passed. Savanna touched everyone who knew her - not only by her presence, but by her PURE heart and gentleness. She seemed to always just be "in tune" with whoever she was around... She brought so much peace and happiness to everyone she touched.
Now my angel on earth, is our Guardian Angel in Heaven!!!
Rest in peace, my sweetheart Savanna...August 10, 1989 ~ October 14, 2003
I feel so bad for my poor family.
My Great-Grandma (Mommy's Grandma) is coming to Heaven soon.
My whole family is so sad and upset. They love Grandma so much. Grandma has cancer really bad, and the doctors can't do anything for her.
If I could only tell my family somehow, how beautiful Heaven is, they wouldn't worry. If they knew how amazing and wonderful it is here, then they would be happy for Grandma. Grandma will be so happy and nothing will ever hurt her again!
When Grandma gets to Heaven, I am going to meet her at the gate! I will be waiting for her with my Grandpa (Grandma's Husband)
I haven't seen Grandma in 3 years now, so I will be able to spend lots of time with her. She has been scratching Idgie and Jordan's backs ever since I came to Heaven, so it will be nice for me to have Grandma's undivided attention!
I can't wait to see her! I have missed Grandma so...
I can't wait to kiss her and hug her and sit on her lap!
I love you so much Grandma! I will be watching and waiting for you!
When I see you I will hug you and never let you go again!
I just wanted to let you know that I am still missing you every day; today especially - as if all of this happened only yesterday.
I cannot wait for the day to come, where I can hold you forever, and never have to let you go again...
I love you with all of my heart,
Mommy xo xo xo
I changed the song that I had on your page.
I found, "You Are My Sunshine" by Elizabeth Mitchell, and it was so pretty.
I thought that it was more fitting, because this is the song that I sang to you every day of your life, from the very first night that I picked you up from the Humane Society and you became my very first rescued fur-daughter.
I haven't sang this song, since the last time I sang it to you.
I don't know if I ever will again. Not to Idgie and not to Jordan.
It's strange, it's almost SACRED, because it is YOUR song.
Mommy loves you Savanna, and even though I can't hold you in my arms today - I know I will someday...and on that day, I will sing to you again..."YOU are MY Sunshine" as tears of joy trickle down my smiling face.
I'm sending kisses and hugs to Heaven for you hunny bunny!
