Three Years Ago Today

Dear Spike:
It's been three years already and I'm still missing you so very much. They say time heals the pain, but it never really does when those moments hit me unexpectedly. Like today it was such a bizarre happening as I was crossing over I-10 at Ambassador Caffery. I looked at the clock on the dashboard then all of a sudden the tears came as I saw the time as 11:06 a.m. which was around the same time three years ago that I had to rush you over to the vet's office to help you make that journey to the Bridge. I know none of us will make it out of this crazy world alive, but for cancer to take you away like that is heartbreaking. At least I know you are free of that awful disease and are with Sheba, patiently awaiting for the day I join you. I love you forever and ever, Spike.


Today I Would Have Been 13 on the Earth

Mom keeps saying how fast the time flies. It's hard fur her no matter what time it is...she says it goes too quickly and sometimes she tells herself that she is "emotionally spent" from me & Sheba leaving her behind. All those days, all that pain of losing us, all the "last day" thoughts that run through her head, all the wonderful years of memories with us and wanting time to stand still to a period when we was right there by her side. But, that's not what is to be mom....we had to go when called to our final Home. Now we watch over our mom and look forward to the day when we see her approaching this great big beautiful place they call the Rainbow Bridge. It will be the best day fur all of us.

My last barkday on the Earth was in 2009. I was fighting the nasty C, but made it to my 10th barkday just fur mom. It was a hard week leading up to that day, but I hung in there. Mom knows I did it fur her, but it still makes her cry thinking about how that nasty C robbed my senior years. Mom says if not for that ugly disease I'd still be there aarrooing at her every day. She just don't know it, but I'm aaaroooing at her from up above every day when she says good morning to our special things on our memorial shelf and when she talks to us throughout the day. We are her constant guardian angels.

Thank you to all my furiends fur remembering my special day. Mom always said I was her special little buddy and she keeps saying it now...that I will always be her special little buddy no matter what, that my ottoman still bears my name..."Spike's ottoman" is what she calls it. I've heard her tell the others to jump up on Spike's ottoman fur eye and ear cleanings. Oh boy, now it's become a grooming thing when all it was before is my special spot to lay fur a better view of the front yard. Aaaarroooo!!! Oh well, I can still fly down while the others are sleeping and lay upon my personal ottoman! Aaarrooo!! Happy Barkday to the Spikesterman, King of the Yard, furever and ever loved. xoxoxo

Stairway to Heaven

Spike, I'm taking over your diary always, Mom.

Although I did have a little time to say good-bye, I wasn't ready to do it two years ago...this poem still speaks volumes because my little Spikester will always have a place in my heart. And, the tears still flow when I think about him not here with me. My life changed so much after I had to let him go on his journey home, but not a day goes by that I don't think of him. He was a special little fellow who stole my heart from the very first time he was handed to me back in 1999. He grew to be such a handsome guy and was extremely smart. Today I still call the ottoman "Spike's ottoman" because he claimed it as his very own. Now it sits in the living room, but none of the others get on it. Maybe they know it belongs to Spike and he comes visit to lay on it at night. When I go outside with the other dogs I can't help but think how much Spike would have enjoyed this new big back yard. He loved to be outside trotting along the fence line and sniffing the smells of where any critters dared to tread. He was and always will be King of the Yard. I hope he comes to visit at night.

Stairway to Heaven....for my little buddy:

If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
No Farewell words were spoken
... No time to say good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.

My heart's still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment

Mom was coming in here to write something, but got the leaky eyes after reading all the special messages fur me. Aaaarrooo!! Aaarrooo! THANK YOU my dearest furiends fur thinking of me on my barkday. Mom, you cannot take over my's MY day. I know she's been thinking about me a lot lately and because I'm such a special handsome dude she can never get over me. I'm entwined in her heartstrings furever and ever!! We'll always be the bestest of buddies.

Twelve years ago I was given life on the Earth, nobody wanted me cuz them crazy hoomans said I was too big to be a Miniature Schnauzer, but fate brought me to my mom's arms one day and it was love at first sight. Sheba never had puppies, but she thought I was her own little baby whom she mothered as soon as mom put me down. We were inseparable and now we are inseparable here in Doggie Heaven. Aaaroooo!! Mom, quit boo-hooing and think about what we're doing today. We are having one of the biggest pawties in MY honor today. It's time to get this pawty started!! Look out below cuz you are gonna hear the paw stomping all day long!! As Wyoming said the sky will be bright tonight as the pawty goes on. And watch out cuz my star will be the one shining brightest. Aaarroooo!!! Aaarrooo!!

mom and I traveled 262 miles round-trip to visit with the specialists dogtors in changed things furever fur both of us. I've been watching mom today and it seems she can't stop thinking about that day. She told some folks I was such a good brave fellow to go through all those tests while she was praying fur it to be a minor thing; not the big C as suspected on that very day. I don't know much about time, but gotta tell mom to stop getting all leaky eyed again over that stuff cuz me, Sheba and Miracle have been pawtying and planning the BIG day when we see her at the Rainbow Bridge. We'll all be flying down to sprinkle lots of angel dust on her will make her feel better. I'll give her a lick on the nose like I used to do when she'd say "gimme sugar on the nose, Spike." That always made her smile and hug me.


A Little Dog Angel

Oh dear, Spike, I read this on FB today and the tears started flowing as I thought of you. You are missed more every day. I love you my little buddy!

A Little Dog Angel
~by Norah M. Holland~

High up in the courts of Heaven today
A little dog-angel waits;
With the other angels he will not play,
And he sits alone at the gates;
"For I know that my master will come," says he:
"And when he comes, he'll call for me."

He sees the spirits that pass him by
As they hasten toward the Throne,
And he watches them with a wistful eye
As he sits at the gates alone;
"I know if I just wait patiently,
Then some day my master will come," says he.

And his master, far on the earth below,
As he sits in his easy chair,
Forgets sometimes, and he whistles low
For a dog that is not there;
And the little dog-angel cocks his ears,
And dreams that his master's call he hears.

And I know, when at length his master waits
Outside in the dark and cold
For the hand of Death to open the gates
That lead to those courts of gold,
The little dog-angel's eager bark
Will comfort his soul in the shivering dark.


Jiffy Coming to My House

I posted this in SR group, but have to document this in my diary. I'm a proud angel watching over my mom and all my fambly and gots a BIG announcement to make. Is you ready fur this? Aaarroooo!!

Mom needs help cuz she is adopting another little fur baby. And he really is still a baby at 7 months old. His name is Jiffy and he comes from the same place Ernie George's brofur Bacon was at. Ya'll know my mom gets so attached and already she is acting like the worried pawrent trying to get her baby safely home. My skin bro said he'd drive with her to Nebraska to pick up Jiffy, but dad say you guys is crazy, not thinking about the bad weathers all over the country in that area. After getting some sleep and now thinking rationally today she say dad is right about that. Maybe that's why she keep dad around!! BOL!!! It's been many years since she's driven in ice, snow and all that wintry stuff. If it was summer there would be no worries cuz she'd probably be on that highway headed North right now. She needs to think about their safety too. Mom say HUA will put Jiffy on airplane to fly into big city of Dallas, Houston or New Orleans but she is worried about him being on airplane like cargo. Does any fur have other suggestions on getting Jiffy home to mom without him having to fly on big airplane? Are there Schnauzer transport groups from Nebraska to at least Shreveport, LA? Mom want Jiffy home TODAY, but we knowed that's not possible.

Me thinks mom should let Jiffy ride on the big airplane then she can drive on safe roadways.

Jiffy is a mini me, Sheba and Miracle all rolled up into one. He is so cute...check him out here:
