I was reading your entries in Koochy's memorial and I see that you are really having a difficult time. I so know how you feel. I hope that you are doing better today. Today was hard for me, but hopefully the days will get easier. Melissa, please try to have the best Christmas you can with Karlee and know that Koochy is up there, watching...wanting you to be happy. I know it's hard. Good luck to you, girl. I totally get it.

Theres that sweet face Koochy. I know you just went through your anniversary from losing dear Koochy, and I know this time of year has to be so hard. It is for me too. I found Otis' stocking while trying to decorate. I cried all night. I knew it was coming. But they are so much better now, young and alive and vibrant. I hope you have a good Christmas Melissa. Take care , and hugs to Koochy

Hi, Melissa! Thank you so much for visiting Sheba's page and for your sweet note. I haven't been visiting here much either lately.

Hey Koochy! Merry Christmas! I just wanted to say thanks for being such a great friend to me since I got here to RB and that I love you very very much! Knowing that I have so many new friends here makes my Mommy feel better about us being a part. Happy Holidays to your loving family as well!
Melissa, I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking of you. I just finished reading your 1 Year Marker to Koochy. I understand that it is difficult to enjoy your daughter, Karlee, watch Cosmo get older, and not think of Koochy. Please try to stay strong during these difficult days. I am sure 2009 will be better! Take care!

melissa, you must have so many mixed feelings being without Koochy but yet celebrating your daughters first Christmas. All my friends on critters are always on my mind even though i can't spend as much time on this site as i have in the past. this holiday is especially hard for me since it is such a reminder of everything i was going thru with Rocky last year, what i would give to have that time back knowing now that is would be his last Christmas with me. I just dread Christmas morning I don't know how i will get thru it, especially with family all around me i don't feel they will understand my feelings of sadness. i am planning to wake up before everyone and go to my computer and watch my last years video clip of Christmas with Rocky and try to get all my tears out in private. I wish you and your family a happy holiday and I will light a candle for Koochy along with Rocky's on Christmas morning. mary

Through tears I just want to say Marry Christmas, Melissa. I know we all get on with our lives. Today I went the whole day without crying and then when I thought I about it, I felt guilty. Like I never I loved her. It's so not true, but it's just a way to torture myself, I guess. I did, do and always will love Sadie, just like you will Koochy....Merry Christmas to you, too. Thank you for the thoughtful message. Good luck to you and your new pup.

Melissa, as we approach the holiday season, I wanted to wish you and yours the very best. I know your beautiful Koochy remains forever in your thoughts and heart just as my Klaus remains in mine. I hope the pain has eased with time and hopefully the coming New Year will bring you more joy and less tears with the arrival of your new baby girl. Take care and know that you and Koochy will never be forgotten.

Hi there my pretty girl. Well tonight at 10pm marks 55 Sundays you have been gone from me. I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH! I wish you could have been here today...it was Karlee's baptism. I sure wish you could have met her. Cosmo loves her and enjoys getting to kiss her. Life is about the same here...struggling emotionally without you here to comfort me. The old Mom misses her Anna Cakes very much too. Have you seen her yet? Please remember no fighting....but let her know her Mom needs her very very much. The holidays are coming up very very soon and it will be the second year without you here. GOSH I MISS YOU! I hope you know just what I am going through....I could say it everytime but I know you know Kuda Bear. I do need you to be my angel and look after me. LIfe is very very hard and I need you to continue through it. I put on that happy face for others but really I am suffering inside. I miss you so very much. I know Matt knows how much I miss you but I am not sure anyone else does. I need you so much. I sure hope you are having the best time you can have without me until I get there. Watch over Cosmo boy he needs you as well and misses you too. I want you to be happy and I know you want me to be happy but its very very hard Koodie. I want you here. I am so so depressed!! I am continuing on knowing thats the only choice and I have a baby girl and Cosmo to provide for and need me. LOSING YOU IS INDESCRIBABLE BY FAR....NO WORDS CAN SOME UP WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH! Be a good girl and you and the Lord guide us in the right path. Love and miss you Koochy.

Well Kuda Bear today marks the 12 year I got you. I remember that day just like yesterday. Its was 1996. Your furry Mom was at the dog pound and was having puppies. If you bought a bag of dog food you could have a puppy when they were old enough to be taken. I had chosen you. You sat in the corner very shy and then came running over to me. I told you I'd be back on the 20th of December. You rode home in my lap as I drove. You were the best little puppy. I sure wish you were here right now. I miss you so very much. Its been a very hard week. Bubsey passed away on Wednesday and we buried her on Thursday. Remember you used to fight with her. My finger is messed up from one time. Her Mom, the old Mom misses her very very much. Please watch over all of us and her and welcome her at the bridge. No fighting though pretty girl. You be a good girl. THE BATTLE OF STRESS CONTINUES AND THE HOLE OF MY LIFE IS GETTING DEEPER AND DEEPER. I AM UNCERTAIN HOW WE WILL DIG OURSELVES BACK OUT. The second Christmas is coming and will pass and no excitement exists besides having Karlee's first Christmas. I sure hope she enjoys it. I almost would rather be working to ease my mind and get out of the house. Please watch over us Koodie and know that the battle of the depression still exists over you and life hasn't gotten any easier. I LOVE AND MISS YOU KOODIE....UNTIL NEXT TIME......

Im so very sorry for your loss. i know how you feel. i just lost my baby 3 weeks ago. i had her for 16 and half years. she was my first and only cat. the hardest thing in my life was having her put down. i cry for her everyday. theres not a day go by i dont think of her. my htoughts are with you. god bless you and your family and of course, Koochy.
12-15-2008 12:33 AM -- By: amy, From: california
I had no idea that Koochy passed away exactly one year before Sadie. I just happened to look at his memorial and there it was...the date that my Sadie passed. Wow. I know that you feel the same way about Koochy that I did and do about Sadie. I am so sorry for your loss, Melissa. God bless you and good luck to you....I know you will see Koochy again one day, just like I know Sadie and I will be together again one day, too....
12-14-2008 7:25 PM -- By: Momma, From: Rapid City, SD
Well Koodie its been 54 Sundays since you left me. It has not gotten any easier either. It seems since you have passed life just keeps getting harder and harder. I am very stressed out and am not sure how things are going to turn out at this house. I sure hope you are doing your best at watching over all of us, because we need you. We finally put the Christmas decorations out.....didn't really want to but Karlee doesn't deserve to start out with no celebration of Christmas. I thought maybe it would cheer me up some but it hasn't. I worry everyday about Cosmo. I picture you here with me everyday as well. Oh how I wish I could wrap my arms around your big furry coat and get a Kuda Bear hug and kiss. I am so depressed.....and holidays coming makes me even more depressed. You came to me in my dreams the other night. It was wonderful. This Sunday coming up is Karlee's baptism. I wish you could have been here for the celebration. Please look over us. Also Annie has been sick....and I know you never got along with her but you and the lord must make her better. The old Mom is very worried about her. I have so much stuff on my plate anymore I am not sure if I can keep up. They say things could be worse or I am just being tested but when is it enough before it gets better. I sure hope you are enjoying yourself as much as you can while not being around me. One day I will come Koodie and you can show me all around. That day will be wonderful....until then you play hard pretty girl. I LOVE AND MISS YOU LOTS. Watch over me from above!
12-13-2008 12:11 PM -- By: Michelle & Princess Baby Girl, From:
I know you just passed Koochy's first anniversary. That milestone was so very hard on me when I reached it for Princess and reading your 1 year message lets me know that it is difficult for you too. I wish I could say it will get easier sometime soon but it has been over a year and half for me now and I still grieve for Princess. What I can say is that I can now speak about her without completely losing it and that the happy memories are slowly replacing the sad ones as the time passes. We will never forget our dear furkids and I am sure they know just how much they meant to us.

What a beautiful and lovely dog. My heart goes out to you on your loss. Someday we will all be at Rainbow Bridge to meet our loving pets once again and forever. Carol A.

Hi there my pretty girl. Well tonight at 10pm marks the 53rd Sunday you have been gone from me. The year is on a steady downward spiral it seems. Nothing has changed here....still missing you and stressed to the max. I wonder if it will ever get better and if 2009 will be very depressing as well. I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH KUDA BEAR. The other night I sat and cried about you....WONDERING JUST HOW MUCH YOU MISS ME IN YOUR CONTINUED LIFE WITHOUT ME. Yes I wonder this all the time.....I can't imagine you living without me considering you were attached to my side every second of everyday. How ya doing it Koodie....I know I am barely surviving without you here. I haven't lived without you this long since I was 17 years old right before I got you. My life once with you was so different. Now that I am living without you again.....I know life will never be the same as it was when you were with me. OH KOODIE I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH! I try to be happy, I try to be positive but its almost too much work these days. I am physically and emotionally drained. I am very tired....and it seems I try to keep myself so busy making the days so long so time won't pass by....I want Cosmo here for a very very long time to come. He is my stress relief! I picture myself daily hugging you and touching that big bushy body of yours and your gentle touch and perfect kisses. Cosmo has been such a good boy and misses you so very much. After you left he started following every move I made just like you.....now he has kind of tappered off to not everytime knowing I am constantly holding Karlee room to room. Its just like when you were here. Oh he loves Karlee so much I can tell. Everytime I put her near him he wants to kiss and lick her and wags his tail...I wonder if he knows she is a part of me. ALL I KNOW IS I WISH I COULD SEE AND HOLD YOU!!! I hope wherever you are....your playing hard waiting for me to get there. I know if I don't get to see you when my times up I will be devastated hugely. I REALLY THINK THATS WHAT KEEPS ME GOING......BELIEVING I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN! Be a good girl. I love and miss you very very much Kuda.

Hi Melissa and Sweet Koochy,

11-30-2008 7:25 PM -- By: Momma, From: Rapid City, SD
Hi there Kuda Bear! I SURE MISS AND LOVE YOU! Tonight at 10pm marks the 52nd Sunday you have been gone from me. You know what that means 52 weeks in a year....your one year marker is Tuesday. I still visit and talk to you everyday and will continue to until I can no longer. I cannot BELIEVE its been 52 Sundays...where has time gone when it has been so miserable. Looking back on this year Dec 07 to Dec 08 has been a big blur of me going through my daily routine and motions of life. Not really any other choice....the only happiness has been being pregnant and having Karlee along with still having Cosmo around. Thats not much for a year. Lots of bad things have happened here besides you leaving. I sure hope you were watching out over us and still are and will continue to until my journey is over. ONE THING IS FOR SURE....YOU HAVE MY HEART AND NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER TAKE IT. YOU AND COSMO WERE MY WORLD, MY KIDS, MY LIFE, MY FAMILY, MY ROCK WHEN I HAD NO ONE TO LEAN ON WHEN TIMES WERE TOUGH. Look at how many tough times I have had now and your not here to comfort me. There is a HUGE emptiness inside for you that will always be vacant...no other can fill those shoes. Since the day you left I have worried about Cosmo leaving me. I can't handle that anytime soon.. I NEED him so very much. I really thought you would have had 4 or more years still left with me when God took you from me so suddenly. It all came to me as a shock and stil is a shock. I picture you everyday here and what you'd be doing or what you'd look like doing things, if you'd like my new car or couch, just simply enjoying life with me still Koodie. I am really not sure how I survived the last year. There have been many times I wanted to give up, but I just keep going knowing you are looking out over me and will guide me in the right path just like you always did. Christmas is coming up...my favorite holiday but I didnt put up any decorations last year due to you passing and I am not sure about this year either. Just not in the mood. I had every intention to last year but then you left me before I had. December is a hard month for me. I used to love the holidays, the get togethers, the parties and now I am not sure if I will ever enjoy them again. I know you want me to be happy but I also know you would be very jealous to see me with another dog and there is no way I will get one anyways. Its hard to be completely happy with you not here. Cosmo and I still walk everyday and he looks so forward to it each and everyday. I enjoy it as well...it gives me time to think and spend time with just him. I think of you a lot...wishing you were with us. You loved walks Koochy. He also loves buh byes and still goes almost daily when Karlee stays home with Dad. Please watch over alll of us and you and the Lord answer our prayers and help and guide us in the right path. I missed you so much during Thanksgiving....we talked about you a lot too and about how your personality was just like mine. You were my girl and I would have done anything for you. Cosmo had lots of turkey and is still eating it. You loved turkey and would stand at the fridge once you knew it was here. I hope you had lots at the rainbow bridge. I hope you know how much I miss and love you and didn' t want you to go and how hard it would be on me with you gone. Its the worst thing imaginable. I thought of last year and how you and Cosmo had sooo much turkey and we had such a great time just the 4 of us. I MISS AND LOVE YOU LOTS.....BE A GOOD GIRL UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.......

Please be well, go find Wallace and take care of one aother....You are loved.....

Hi there my pretty girl...well tonight at 10pm marks 51 Sundays I haven't been with you. I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! GOSH I WISH YOU WERE HERE TO MAKE ALL MY STRESS GO AWAY! I hope you are watching out over me. I need you very very much. My 30th birthday was very very hard. You weren't here for my celebration and to hug and kiss. Dad and I went out for a short time only due to being parents now. It was the first birthday I celebrated without you. In fact since my 18th birthday I have celebrated with you. I wish you could have been here for my 30th birthday too. I thought of last year and how we were all together. I was looking at my digital camera and seen I took several photos of you on my birthday last year. I am not looking forward to Thanksgiving either this year. Last year we had so much fun and now this year you won't be here. You loved turkey and ate so muc of it last year since it was just the 4 of us. I wonder what 2009 will bring us...since this year has been so very crumy. It has been the hardest year of my life since you left. I am not looking forward to your one year marker coming. Its going to be so devastating. I could go on and on like always...but there are no words to descibe how I feel about you, how much I miss you, and how much I am hurting over you being gone. No one will ever know. I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH AND PICTURE YOU HERE EVERYDAY. Please watch out over me and answer my prayers...until next time play hard Kuda Bear.....I LOVE YOU!!

Hi there my pretty girl...how are you? Tonight at 10pm (in 2 hours) marks the 50th Sunday you left me. That means 350 days....coming up on your year marker, and I am not sure how I will handle that one. Since you passed life has been very hard for me. These last 11 months are the longest most stressful months I have ever lived through. I hope you are watching out over all of us, because we all need you very very much. We need our prayers answered. I miss you so very much. I have been picturing you lately and did today as Cosmo ran after a dog. You know Cosmo and you looked so much alike besides the fur texture and face. I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH KOODIE! Thanksgiving is coming up soon and last year you and Cosmo ate so much turkey. That was my most favorite thanksgiving....just the four of us....our little family. I wanted you to see Karlee...she always wants to be with me just like you did. Dad had to adjust your one light in your memorial due to the heavy snow it was really pushed way down in there. I am so glad I left everything out for you. I can see your solar star from the window. Oh yes we changed the living room around and now the couch is next to the bay window. I told Dad I wish we would have had it that way when you were here. I know you would looked out of it constantly and would have been waiting in the window for me to come home just like you did at our townhouse. I LOVED THAT KUDA! You and Cosmo would watch me leave in the mornings too. You were so concerned with me. I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW HARD YOU LEAVING ME HAS BEEN AND HOW MUCH I WISH YOU WERE HERE AND THAT I MISS AND LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH! Be a good girl. I know I will see you when my journey is up. Until then be a good girl. I only have one more week left of maternity leave and then will be missing Cosmo and Karlee. I wished I could have stayed gone longer. Please watch over them too.

Oh Melissa you touch my heart and make me cry every time I read your letters to your baby I never thought there were people like me who loved a fur baby has much as I did. All my friends thought I was crazy for the things I did and bought for her. Everytime I went on vacation all I could think of was her and missing her so much either know I knew she was with her nana who loved her just as much as me and she was safe I just could not stopping thinking of her that it came to where I would not enjoy the vacation.Now I go on vacation I still think of her wishing I was still missing her at home. Crazy I know but thats just life for me know and I know you know them feeling. I was thinking of you today So I wanted to stop by and yes it would be great to meet have you ever been to New York? Please keep intouch
Love you Koochy be a good girl hope you and Socks are not getting into to much trouble Give her a great big wet Kiss for me
