Arrival Story:
I was heartbroken after the sudden death of my Amber, a very kind and faithful yellow lab. The house echoed, it was soooo empty. I called on an old ad in the paper published 4 weeks previously that caught my eye. The ad read, "basset-bloodhound mix pups". Hmmmmmm I had always wanted a houndie. This pup would be nothing like a lab (I knew Amber was irreplaceable)... Well, I found out all the pups had gone to their new homes, but oddly enough, one pup had been returned the previous day as the new owner was allergic to her. Yes!! This was my lucky day!!! I actually believe that she was just MEANT FOR ME. Just seeing that beautiful doggie-face, it was love at first sight. ar-rooooo, ar-roooooooo, ar-rooooooooooooooo Now, the daily mischief, thievery, and oh-so silly antics have brought a new joy into life... Every day I enjoy BIG houndie hugs from my Luna Bear --- the most loving-est dog I have ever known!

following is a list of some of the items Luna Bear has partially/totally consumed in her first year of life: 1 cell phone, 1 (VERY VERY important) bill from the IRS, at least 1 of each of my pairs of shoes, 3 beautiful, expensive (and very large) books, 1 couch, 1 loveseat, ALL of the newly planted spring flowers, 3 pairs of sunglasses, 1 paycheck, 2 tv remote controls, etc. etc...and, of course, the EMPTY SPOT left in my heart by Amber ATB.

My dear girl Luna Bear it has been 1yr today since you crossed over the bridge. I miss you every day and say your name often. I hope you hear me as I still and always will carry you and our memories in my heart. It was a difficult first 6mo after you left. I had an emotional breakdown and the tears would not quit flowing and I had to seek medical help for my grief. I always knew that when you would have to go that it would be hard but I never expected that I wouldn't be able to overcome the grief without intervention. We had a terrific life together my beauty and I am grateful I knew such great love from you and you from me.
I'll see you again I know....

Sweet Luna Bear, It is 6 months today since you left to the bridge. Think of you and our time together almost every day. You were my treasure and I miss your presence at my feet...I said I would write again when I cleaned your drool off the back door, and today was the day!
I am moving out, so I can have a very precious new puppy in my life. Her name is Jamaica and she is an 8 wk old basset hound! You would approve I know! It's time to begin again and I want you to know I will carry you in my heart forever...we will be together again someday my sweet kind girl. Love mama


A Letter to Luna Bear

Hi Luna Bear, it has been 2 months since you crossed the bridge. Think of you everyday sweet girl. You've left me 10 years of a hounds love. excellent memories. I must confess there is still a drool you flung upon the back door that I have not wiped off. :-)) I was secretly proud of your technique and athletic ability.. to toss drool 5' off the floor was not easy. So I will leave it awhile longer.
Love, mama
Ps. You've been busy I'm sure but I want you to know what came to be here after you crossed over. Our Dogster friends chose your Diary as Featured Diary of the Day! So cool!
Then they chose your diary to play again for the week! Told you you are a "moobie star" Luna Bear. Then I received a lot of caring words in comfort from other Dogsters. Very nice.
Then I received an important letter from UC Davis school of veterinary medicine.
Remember "dat ol vet man"??
Well he did sumphin wonderful because of You!
South Bay Veterinary Hospital in Chula Vista Ca made a financial donation to the Companion Animal Memorial Fund in memory of Luna Bear!! The $ will support studies into finding answers for the diseases that cause pain and suffering among companion animals.
Diseases like MRSA .. Which took you from me.
But anyways I feel good that vet man made a memorial for you. Cause you're special!
I'll write again the day I clean off the drool.
Until then

"Sniff Everything Everywhere and Enjoy Life"
or in your case "The Afterlife" Luna Bear!
