Next week will mark the 5 month anniversary of you crossing over to Rainbow Bridge. I still miss you terribly. I miss sooooo many things about you....You always met me at my car door when I arrived home from work....only to run to wait by your pool so I wouldn't forget to play with you and your favorite toy!! Your beautiful eyes still haunt me.....They were full of so much love and knowledge beyond your years. You were taken from me way too soon....you had so much more life to live and experience.
Maggie took your passing almost as hard as I did. I was very very worried about her....she had gotten very aggressive and then would mope for days....looking for you....she was always looking for you...her best friend, teacher, protector, playmate. You were definitely a huge part of Maggie's life. I did break down and go get a playmate for Maggie.....hoping to bring life back into her and make her the happy go lucky girl she was before your passing.
So now we have Monster....and let me tell you....she lives up to her name! She is brindle like you, but not the dark coloring you had. She is still pretty young....but I see alot of your mannerisms in her....she doesn't like aggression or barking. She sleeps at my feet...just like you!!! But, unlike you, she can/does bring Maggie, Dusty and Bubba to their knees....(may have alot to do with her being able to stand under them and nip at their front feet). So Monster has helped Maggie deal with losing you....though she will never replace you....as you are irreplaceable she has helped tremendously with getting us all to start living again.
I hope we were able to show you while you were alive just how much we loved you and still do. We wanted nothing but the best for you and miss you terribly. You were taken too soon...(even if I had you for 100 years....it would be too soon) You are that special to me.
I love you Faithy!
