well, mom can't believe that it has been a whole two years since I have graced her life...(well, actually, I can home when I was a few weeks old...but, still yet...)
September 8th brings many memories....most profound, of course, is the fact that September 8th is when mom's own mother passed away. It took a long time for mom to get better emotionally....and, I know that it was because of me (yep, a little five pound ball of fur) to help her heal and learn to move on with life....
When I came to my new home, everyone was very sad and in shambles! Mom's dad died just six weeks before her mom died....a double whamie, and it was really really bad!! Everyone was sad...the kids were a mess and dad was trying to hold it all together. But, then I came. I was only shy of 2 pounds, but I was a big ball of fire....I just lit that house on fire and I have been going strong for two years! When I came home, the tears started to go away....I made momma happy and laugh - and the kids - oh the kids just loved and adored me and they just spoiled me to death! And dad, yep dad, well he just couldn't hold back either. He didn't believe I was a "real" dog at first - judging me by my size...but, boy - he is my bestest pal too !
I love my family, and they love me. Never did Mom realize how much a dog could change the dynamic of a family. Never did she realize that a dog could help in the grieving process or bring utter joy and happiness. I am happy that I have spent two years with such an amazing family, and they are happy to have me as their real "FAMILY" member!
Dogster has been a pleasure as well. When mom felt sad or depressed, she would log on to dogster, and she could escape in a dog/human world where she felt safe and happy! Although mom has many responsibilities at home, she always takes a little time for herself here on dogster for fun and enjoyment. It has helped more than words can say, and she knows that only her fellow DOGSTER pals could ever really understand!
It is a piece of a secret paradise here on dogster.....and she hopes to continue on and on..........
Pierre and Mom!
