Arrival Story:
Storm was a stray that a friend found on Christmas Eve. They couldn't keep her and I was looking for a dog. 3 of us showed up to look at her and she came to me and noone else. I said I'd take her for a week, see what happens and if it didn't work out, they would take her back and find a better home for her. Well, 24 hrs later, I was totally in love, and she has been by my side right away.

Bio:
Storm has travelled everywhere with me, car or plane, she has been everywhere..She has been trained to be my assistance pet, which she is now retired from, she was there when my parents died for me. She use to love to climb up in my Fathers bed when he was ill and just lay there. Storm is my secret keeper, my heart, and I love her more than life itself.

Overwhelmed with kindness

Dear Friends of Storm:

I am overwhelmed with the kindness that you all have sent. I still cry daily for my loss, even knowing that my heart is over the bridge having a blast without me. I have been unable to get past my grief. I still have all her things out, and her sister Jazz, is finally starting to play with her toys again. She still won't go outside alone, she and her sister Storm always did that together dont' ya know. I got her ashes back a week to the day she died, wow, that was emotional! I was not prepared for that at all. Not to mention that I had won a contest for a personized urn! I didn't even remember entering that. I wanted you all to know that dogster has been the best! I've so enjoyed my time here. Don't worry, I'm not leaving. I've decided I'm not a 1 dog home and I would honor Storm best by NOT trying to replace her, however, I have so much love, to get another dog is going to happen come Sept. I'm getting a puppy, she was born June 19th which I feel is appropriate since Storm died in June, there maybe an extra twinkle in this puppies eyes. Well, I'm also not getting a Sheltie! OMG! Thats right, I'm sticking with a herding breed, but a German Shephard is coming my way! I get pick of the litter too! I've got a name picked out, (keeping that a secret for now) but when I get her home, I promise pictures right here first.
Thanks everyone for being my friends and Storms, and for comforting when I didn't think anything could.

Always Storms Friend

It is with saddness I write today to let you all know that Storm passed peacefully in her owners arms June 4, 2010. A faithful companion for almost 14 yrs. Storm was the most kind, gentle, loving creature her companion in life had ever known. She did it all, plane, train and auto travel. Loved others as she was loved. There is great saddness and an empty coolmat where Storm lived. She leaves many, many human friends, her sister Jazz and a lifetime full of wonderful memories for her human companion.

 

feeling my age

Today I had my first (I think) seizure. It was scary to me, and more to my Mom who cried and cried. Of course, having it on a late Sunday afternoon didn't help. I am getting older now (14) and I know my time is coming soon, but I hate putting my Mom thru all this. I love her so much, and she will be so lost without me. Tomorrow she is calling my Vet, I hate that and I don't want to go, but I know I have to. It maybe my final visit, if its a tumor or something. We all know that when we are this age and have a seizure for the first time, its a very bad thing, so anyone reading this, please send a wee pray for me.
Thanks,
Leaving paw prints on your heart
