its coming up a year anniversary since you went to the bridge. I am thinking of you so often, and it seems the only thing time has done is dug up memories of your younger days. In a sense this is a good thing, a blessing so that I can remember you in your prime, a mischievous, spunky airedale who was living life to the fullest. But in other ways it is all the more painful, and I miss you so much more. I was looking through all of our families old photos i and I came across so many beautiful pictures of you as a puppy, a young dog, my beautiful girl. I found pictures of you and Ariel lying together, paws intwined, nose to nose. You two had such huge hearts.
I remember how you would run in your funny prancing way along the fence when ever anybody walked by. I remember how you used to lay on your back with your paws up on the wall in the hallway...we had to repaint that spot so many times. I remember how you would get our slippers if asked. I remember the one time that you gave me a kiss. I remember how you would sleep on the landing on our stairs all the time. I remember you never once ran out of our eyesight on walks, even though Ariel insisted on taking off. I remember you staying with me when I got separated from the family in the ravine. But most of all I remember how you showed your amazing love and affection by nuzzling us with your fuzzy face.
It pains me so much to think of the decline in your health after Ariel passed away. You lost so much spirit and all of your pride. I know you are an angel now Holly, looking down on me with Ariel all the time but it is too hard to think of you and not cry. You're my Holly bell, Holly berry, teddy bear and I miss you so much.
On Tuesday, March 20, 2007, my family made the decision to help me to the bridge. After all of my suffering, I am finally well again, and with my best friend Ariel. I'm still learning the ropes on how to be a good angel, but with the help of all of my pals up here, I am learning fast. In the future, when you have a bad day, know that I am here watching over you and helping you turn that bad day around. As I know I am furever in my family's hearts, you are all furever in mine.
