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!

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

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.

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

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

Beloved Paw Paw, the celebrity Chow Chow to Martha Stewart passed away 4/12/08. Here is what she says in her blog and a link to take you to her page to see his pictures. It's a sad day in the Chow Chow community. Martha's Blog

As many of you know, my beloved dog, Kublai Khan Paw Paw Chow Chow Chow, was not feeling well in recent weeks and I am very heart-broken to announce his passing last Saturday, April 12, 2008 as he was approaching his 13th year. Paw Paw was a spectacular chow and an even more spectacular dog. He was always my loyal companion, displaying the most agreeable temperament. Paw Paw loved traveling with me and was always a willing model for the camera. In addition to taking part in television commercials and several national print ads, he has been part of numerous photo shoots and is a familiar face on my television show, in my magazine, and on this blog. Paw Paw’s veterinarians, Dr. Thomas Marsh of Fairfield, CT and Dr. Marty Goldstein of South Salem, NY also admired his easy-going nature, and caring for him was never a chore. Even in his final days, Paw Paw just stopped eating and drifted off to deep sleeps, where he now rests peacefully, and, I’m most confident, quite happily. I will miss him, always.

Tara bowing her head and welcoming Paw Paw to the bridge. Godspeed Paw Paw.

Beyond the Rainbow

"Beyond The Rainbow"
(Author Unknown)

As much as I loved the life we had and all the time we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, the bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

------------------------------------------------ -----------------------------------------------------------

Still missing my baby girl so very much. I've been thinking of her constantly lately and wishing she were still with us. I love you Tara! I'm listening.
