I was at the vet’s office today with Auntie P and Jo Jo when the lady came in with her doggie that reminded me so much of you. She had found him as a puppy out in the desert and he was so scared to be in a territory filled with humans and different smells.
I asked the lady if she thought it was alright for me to approach her doggie, was he too scared? His tail was tucked tightly between his legs and he was quivering. She said that he was, humans scared him and so I sat down in a chair and from afar reminisced about you. This dog had the same exact head as you, the same marked Chow Chow tongue, the same eyes and the same un-sureness you always had towards new situations and humans. When asked to get on the weight scale, this dog had the exact reaction that you always had… “I don’t think so!!”
Suddenly this beautiful dog yanked on his owner’s leash to approach me and he surprised her with what I would have done had it been you… she pulled back on his leash with un-sureness. It was o.k. as he came and placed his head in my lap and I hugged him and kissed him on his head and looked into his loving eyes. She then let the leash go and I felt that in some way you had something to do with this. Although I knew that it wasn’t you, I felt so bonded to this once feral dog as he reminded me so much of you and I knew that he felt my love and my pain of losing you too. He was so sweet.
The tears have once again started and have not stopped flowing since this afternoon my sweet Shadow. I miss you and I love you so much!! They say it’s like the blink of an eye to our loved ones who have crossed over when we finally are able to meet up with them again. Let me tell you, it’s like infinity and beyond for us!!
Gentle Hugs & Love,
