The Memory Book

The most beautiful book arrived in our mail about a week ago. It was put together by our beloved Massachusetts friends Tracey, Baxter and MacKenzie who have been friends with us almost from the first moment we joined Dogster.

It is a hard cover book with words, poems, verses and pictures from pals old and new. Many of the original pals from Dogster took the time to send loving pictures and words about our times together thru the years. Then newer pals joined in as well and even those we were not "officially" pals with sent touching memories of their time on earth and leaving for Bridge and friendship.

This book has touched my heart and not a day passes without going thru it and finding something new to make me smile. Of course, I cry as well but it's a healing type of tears knowing others truly understand how hard it is to say goodby and that the friendships we have made will never be broken.

I honestly don't think I would have survived without my Dogster friends as only they can whole heartedly understand the grief between an "owner" and their dog. These wonderful creatures God has made called dogs are truly little furry Angels meant to show us love, caring, sharing, friendship and a lifetime commitment of the heart.

Would I not have taken Willie into my heart if I knew somewhere down the road it would tear my heart into a million pieces having to say goodby. Not a chance!

This wonderful book will be cherished forever and there are truly no appropriate words to thank all those who took the time to be a part of it. You will never know how it has helped my process of saying goodby by showing me that love truly never dies. It just goes to a different place in your heart with time.

Thank you all - each and every one of you are loved so very much. Tracey, special blessings to you and your family for your loving kindness in putting this very special and loved book together.

Know my little pup is smiling down at each and every one of you from a fluffy cloud as he chomps a mini-meatball with Baby Jesus tucked underneath him this holiday season.

Know his mom is so very thankful for each and every friendship that is furever part of her heart.

Angel Willie and Mom Joni
