Thank you Willie for posting it in Squeaky and Fuzzy so we could read it.

To Where You Are by Josh Groban

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

 

A Special Friend

I lost a very special friend
the kind you can't replace,
and looking at her empty bed
I still can see her face.

I see the endless energy
the sparking puppy eyes.
Not the tired fragile friend
I had to bid goodbye.

I know she's in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
Where meadows, field and flowers help
make them strong and whole again.

I remember how she'd run to me
to play her favorite puppy game.
And how her ears would perk right up
When she heard me call her name.

But as those precious years went by
And we both aged and grew,
I'd find her often slowing down
But - we had still so much to do.

She did her guard dog duty well
Each time the doorbell rang.
Strangers surely couldn't see
My gentle friend -- behind those fangs.

She started getting sick
Was this her special clue,
Because she felt the end was near
I only wish I knew.

My fox was a special dog
I knew she gave her best,
But as I looked deep into her eyes
I knew it was time, for her to rest.

It will truly be a struggle
I don't know how I'll face each day,
I have to let her go -- I know
But in my heart she'll always stay.

This special place our Lord has made
Healthy and Strength, wait for her there.
So with my very special friend
I'm sending all my prayers.

I know she's watching over me
She'll be with me when I cry.
So with one more kiss on her beloved head I told my baby girl fox goodbye.

Annie S.

 

Message from the "Dog"

I am your dog, and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life.

Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrongdoing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few minutes, to be with me.

So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that
screen, of other of my kind passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land. I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together.

So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my
eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even "Mom or Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general.

You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am.

I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and
I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls.
I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" -- I know what you are.
You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.
Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow
down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short.

 

My New Slideshow

I just wanted to say thank you to Bandit and Bandit's mommy, Nancy for making me a very beautiful slideshow.

Mommy sure had a hard time picking out the pictures of me. There was one picture she really wanted in the slideshow, but she lost the picture. I was playing with a cat toy that has this mouse that you could bat. That was my FAVORITE toy! I think the picture will show up somewhere. It was before she had a digital camera.

Anyways, I am just so glad there are such nice people on there willing to spend some time out of their busy lives to make me such a wonderful video. THANK YOU!!!!

I love the Spring time. Flowers and new life. It's just so beautiful. Just like new friends are.

Anyways, enough of that stuff.

I just want to say thank you to all my friends for helping me with my transition to heaven, and helping my mommy, daddy, and brothers and sisters with getting back in the groove of things.

Dogster has been great and I've had a ton of fun. Wish I had more time each day to have more fun, but I'm quite busy up here. There are so many things to do and animals to meet.

Hope you all have a happy Spring!

PS -- Mommy told me the weather man said the next few days will be like winter....don't worry...that won't last long!!

 

My Sickness

I began to get sick mid November. I started shivering, even though it wasn't cold in the house. Mommy called the vet and I was seen. They couldn't find anything wrong with me, so I was sent home with some antibiotics. The next week I began throwing up (and still shivering). I was rushed to the vet again and they did bloodwork and xrays. The xrays came back fine and the bloodwork (for the most part) was okay too. I was still kept on antibiotics. Then, 2 days later I stopped eating and drinking. I also collapsed for a few minutes, but mommy picked me up and rubbed my legs and then I was okay. I was taken back to the vet and they rechecked my bloodwork. BUN and creatinine levels were high (my kidney function was declining). They thought I had lyme poisioning but mommy said I didn't. They still pushed the medicine for it. I took one dose that night, and threw it up an hour later. It made my belly really upset. I then took another one in the morning and then as mommy put it "all hell broke loose". I was sicker than I ever was to begin with. I was rushed to the Emergency vet for them to tell me they don't know what was wrong. They gave me the fluids underneath the skin and sent me home. Mommy took me to the regular vet the following morning and I was admitted to the hospital for three whole days. My creatinine level was 9.7 when I was admitted (normal level is .5-1.5). I did get better on the IV and I did start to eat again. I finally got to go home!!! However, within 3 days I stopped eating again. I was taken back to the vet and my creatinine level had jumped from a 2.0 to 4.7. The vet said to mommy and daddy that I might have to be euthanized. Daddy asked if I was in any pain and Dr. Hoffman said "no he isnt in any pain". We asked for more fluid underneath the neck before mommy and daddy made a decision.

Well...within an hour I felt so good again! I was wagging my tail and running around, so mommy and daddy decided to go back to the vet and ask for more fluids. Mommy and Daddy did a lot of research and learned that fluid therapy works well for kidney failure. Anyways, so the doctor said I was a great candidate for the fluid therapy, so we begin that. Mommy injected me with the needle EVERY day for that and I am so grateful she did that. That gave me almost 2 weeks more with mommy and daddy, so I could tell them how much I loved them.

But then, almost 2 weeks later, I collapsed. I couldn't walk. I was miserable. Mommy tried rubbing my legs and it didn't work. I could walk for maybe one minute every 15 minutes, but I was so weak. I had gone from 35lbs to 23 lbs in about 3 weeks. I didn't have any muscle left to hold myself up. Mommy and daddy took me to the vet and they didn't know what was wrong. Mommy and daddy decided it was time to say goodbye and let me run free in heaven.

 

My Life

I was born Jan. 4, 2001. My mommy and daddy got to witness my conception and birth. They watched me grow up to be a handsome protective little man.

I loved being with mommy and daddy. They treated me like I was a king. I also liked to play with my twin brother, Prince, and my little sister, Daisy, and my biological mom and dad (who I just considered brother and sister). We all liked to run around the house like a pack of wild doggies.

One time, we all got out of the yard (we had a fenced in yard) and we ran wild around the neighborhood. The cops were called, and when they showed up, we will all just sitting like good boys and girls underneath the big ole maple tree in the front of our yard. When mommy and daddy got home the police officer said we all were just sitting under the tree since he got there, and just gave mommy and daddy a warning. Mr. Police officer was very nice to watch us until mommy and daddy got home. We all had some good times while growing up.

Anyways, I had always been such a momma's boy from the beginning. We just had a bond. I loved mommy and she loved me back in return. I would always sleep with her and lay on her lap. She didn't need to give me any attention, because both of us knew how much we loved each other.

I'll have to add more memories later, but right now I want to talk about my sickness before I passed on and went to heaven.
