Sending purple kisses from heaven

It was a scary start because soon after planting my tree we had a terrible storm that partially uprooted it. Mom awoke to the howling wind and pouring rain during a severe thunderstorm and went to look out the window to check on my tree. To her dismay, the newly planted tree was partially uprooted and leaning to almost a 45 degree angle. She didn't want to wait until morning figuring if they got to it right away it would be less traumatic on the rooting. She woke up daddy and they grabbed stakes and rope and went outside to right my tree. Considering it was the middle of the night and pouring they were pleased that they seemed to get it straight again. The following day they bought proper stakes and staked it so it wouldn't happen again. Then we had such a frigid winter that mom was worried that a tree that had trauma and also a cold winter might not make it but springtime has finally revealed that my memorial tree survived and I'm sending down my purple kisses from heaven! It's my way of physically staying with my family and all summer they can look at the purple foliage and remember my purple kisses and the life we spent together. My spirit lives in my tree and I wasn't about to disappoint them. So to all my Dogster pals out there, know that I am doing fine and sending you all purple kisses from heaven.

Love and purple kisses,
Angel Tara


Purple Kisses part two

Yesterday the leaves on my beautiful Royal Red Maple memorial tree were still folded but this morning I opened them up and sent my purple kisses flowing free. My tree is about 80% opened now and mom is so happy. While I take some credit for my tree surviving, I also have to thank everyone who was sending my tree their prayers and good wishes. My wonderful friends Miss Ling and Saydee even sent over a Chow guardian during the winter to help my tree pull through and to watch over me and my tree. I'm thrilled to be able to send down my kisses to all my family and friends. You are all very dear to me! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Love and purple kisses

As much as my family would like to forget it, the one year anniversary since I left is fast approaching. Mom says this has been a very difficult time for her. When she was shopping today she passed by the mylar balloons and decided to buy me one. It simply says Thinking Of You, which she has been doing non-stop.

I was blessed with a loving caring home for almost 14 years and will patiently wait until the day we are reunited again. For now, it is just a blessing to know I am still loved.

Love and purple kisses,
Angel Tara

PS- Look how beautifully my tree is doing, too.


Remembering Tara (A year later)

Today marks one full year since you left us Tara, and for the family it seems like just yesterday. This morning I lit a memorial candle in your honor and will celebrate the life we shared, not the love we lost. Blessed were we to have had you come in to our lives for almost 14 years. You lived every day and greeted every morning with the wag of a tail. We love you and miss you, but we are also grateful for the time we shared. I wrote a poem for you this morning, mind you it is not very good but I just wanted to show you in my own special way how much you meant to us all.

Remembering Tara

A year has passed since we said goodbye,
So many times I just sat and cried.
Longing for the times we shared
Hoping you knew how much we cared.
Five times you had to move with us,
You never complained or put up a fuss.
You seemed to take it all in stride,
We loved you for your determination and pride.
A year has passed, this much is true,
But our love is here in spirit with you.


T- Terrific
A - Affectionate
R- Radiant
A- Angelic

With all our love,
Mom and family


Missing you so very much

Tara, you are still missed so very much. Though a year has passed, it seems like only yesterday that you were by my side. My heart still aches but I know there will come a day when we will meet again.

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

My little buddy Raja tagged me so here I go -

Here's seven things that you might (or not) like to know about me:

1. I loved my family but getting brushed wasn't my favorite thing to have done.

2. Mom says that the older I got the sweeter I had become. I know you miss me mom but don't worry, I watch over you.

3. Once, a long time ago, mom was driving the boys home from karate class when she saw a beautiful Chow and said, "Awwwww, it's a TaTa baby." Then she looked up and saw it was daddy at the other end of the leash and it was indeed her TaTa baby! :) This was miles from home, back when I was young and could do that sort of thing, but she never imagined it was really me. They stopped and drove us home.

4. I was kind of a picky eater and I wouldn't touch anything with banana in it.

5. I made a funny noise when I was excited. Mom said it sounded like an orangutan. It made my family laugh

6. I would always wait by the door for my family to come home. You could always count on me to be the first to greet you at the door.

7. I will celebrating my 2nd birthday in heaven on the 13th of this month. I would've been 15 years old on earth.

I'm off to tag some pals.

Love and purple kisses,
Angel Tara

Today is my birthday and my second here at the rainbow bridge. I wish my mom wasn't so sad but I know she still misses me. She lit a candle for me today in memory of the life we shared.

Love and purple kisses,
Angel Tara

I see you around me,
so vivid and clear.
Your paws surround me,
so loving and dear.

Our hearts were shattered
the day that you departed,
but your spirit is with us
never to be parted.

We love and miss you Tara. Happy Birthday

OMD, look at my lovely ornament. Mom loved Dragon's ornament so much that she asked the very talented artist, Lynne, to paint ornaments for the entire family. Angels included!! Me, Bruno, and Sandi are all getting custom painted ornaments, too. It's a tradition in our house to place the ornaments of the angels up at the top of the tree near the angel tree topper. This is my second year up there but it is the first year my brother Bruno joined us. Mom still misses us so very much, but this will be one more way to always keep us close at heart. What a lovely keepsake painted by a very talented artist. Here is her web address if you would like to see more of her wonderful work.

Love and purple kisses from heaven,
