Olive left us one year ago. I still miss her terribly.
She was a super special dog. She came into my life during a time of transition and sadness. She brought me security and joy.
I'm trying to decide whether today I should put her ashes under the Olive tree I planted for her. Right now she is on a dresser in my room, inside a tin can, which is inside a velvet bag. There is also a lock of her fur in the bag. I pet her there every day.
I always wanted an Olive tree in the backyard. Olive loved the backyard and I worried that there wasn't enough shade. Years went by and I didn't plant the Olive tree. Then she was gone. She never got to sit under the Olive tree.
The plan was to put her there on the first anniversary of her passing. She never liked to be cooped up and I hated the thought of her being in that box. But now I am reluctant. Its a nice reminder of her to see her box and pet it everyday. It sounds so silly.
I'm really sad today.

We're thinking of Olive today.
We know how you feel. We have Ccokie and Rosie's remains on a shelf in our family room. It brings great comfort having them close.
Olive is with Sydney and the two have many friends at the Bridge that love them.
Happy Easter Olive. We miss you sweet girl.
Thinking of Olive too...
How about just a little of her out by the tree and you will still have her inside on your dresser too..
