Gina, Happy Easter to you and yours......
Have you been to Shiprock or in that area? The Navajos believe that the "mountain" is a special place..in different ways. Good and bad things happen there. Tippy was the consumate photography subject. I miss that so much. I was much more inspired when he was here. I've almost quit taking "fine art" photographs. I don't travel anymore because I can't..without Tip.
Have a great day. We're loving Saada today! Pat

Hi Gina... Thanks so much for the sweet poem - I loved it! Yes, I'm sure our girls are romping and having great fun, and an Easter egg hunt sounds like something Molly would just love! I bet Molly and Saada make a heck of a team :) I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. Just know that Saada sends you kisses from Heaven. Thank you for thinking of me and my Molly Girl.

Hi Baby. Happy Easter. Just wanted to stop by and tell you how much I miss you and love you my girl.
The sky is full of bunny clouds, so soft and fluffy and white, I wonder if they're hiding eggs for stars to find at night. Because it's Easter Eve, you know, and there's no reason why there shouldn't be an Easter hunt in meadows in the sky.

God bless you, and keep in touch.

Kia and I are out wishing a Happy Easter to all,,,,,,,They're a very special gift; to be cherished and loved
You're chosen for each other; by God Himself above
It's a match made in heaven; so it can't be wrong
You're tied together by a bond; that's oh so strong
All they'll ever ask from you; is to be loved and fed
And at night make sure they have, fresh water and a bed
In return for so little; the rewards are so great
You'll get a companion for life; with some very special traits
When you are lost; and the end seems so far away
They'll walk by your side; they'll help you find your way
When life gets you down; they can put a smile on your face
As they run you in circles; with their fast pace
You'll share the good with the bad; you'll be happy and sad
And through it all you have a friend; the best you ever had
You're time together; will be special and unique
It will be as priceless to you; as a rare antique
Then before you know it; the day will arrive
When suddenly your life; takes a steep dive
The furry friend who's been with you for all of these years
Has now passed on; and left you in tears
As you sit and wonder; what did I do
Why is this all happening to you
Into each of our lives; a little rain must fall
And you must be strong; to answer the call
Your little one's spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
To a special place that awaits them; in heaven above
St. Francis will meet them; when they get home
He will take them to a meadow; where they're free to roam
There in the meadows; down by the pond
Your furry friend will remember his loving bond
He'll look into the water; then you apppear
He can see you're frightened; he can feel your fear
Through the bond that still ties you; from heaven above
He looks down upon you; he sends you his love
Because you loved him; and because you care
Whenever you need him; he'll always be there
There in the meadows; they patiently wait for the day
When you will celebrate your life together; each and everyday
Waiting for that day; when you come walking back home
When together for an eternity; through the meadows you'll roam.

I love your daisies! I want to thank your mommy for putting the candle sect., and the sect. re Duke's brother and daughter, on his site. I really appreciate it a lot. Good-night sweet girl; it's 1:30 a.m, and I've got to go to bed now. Love you so much! XXXXXXOOOOOO
04-09-2009 6:11 PM -- By: janice & duke, From:
I sobbed when I read one the poems that your mom put on the Poem sect. I think it was the second poem. I couldn't see in front of me I was crying so hard. It reminded me of Duke b/c I had such a hard time letting go. Oh, it brought back memories, and when it's written in the form where a pet is speaking, it tugs at my heart ten-fold. I have to read the rest. Is it okay if I put some, or all, of them on Duke's site? I would like that so much. I have to figure out how your mom transfers things. Laura, Dale's mom, sent that poem to Janice too, but she had no idea how to put it on my site. Anyway, love you Saada. XXXXXXXOOOOOOO

this is a long poem so no problem if you delete it but its a beauty,,,,,,,
If you ever love an animal, there are three days in your life you will always remember . . .
The first is a day, blessed with happiness, when you bring home your young new friend. You may have spent weeks deciding on a breed. You may have asked numerous opinions of many vets, or done long research in finding a breeder. Or, perhaps in a fleeting moment, you may have just chosen that silly looking mutt in a shelter -- simply because something in its eyes reached your heart. But when you bring that chosen pet home, and watch it explore, and claim its special place in your hall or front room -- and when you feel it brush against you for the first time -- it instills a feeling of pure love you will carry with you through the many years to come.
The second day will occur eight or nine or ten years later. It will be a day like any other. Routine and unexceptional. But, for a surprising instant, you will look at your longtime friend and see age where you once saw youth. You will see slow deliberate steps where you once saw energy. And you will see sleep when you once saw activity. So you will begin to adjust your friend's diet -- and you may add a pill or two to her food. And you may feel a growing fear deep within yourself, which bodes of a coming emptiness. And you will feel this uneasy feeling, on and off, until the third day finally arrives.
And on this day -- if your friend and whatever higher being you believe in have not decided for you, then you will be faced with making a decision of your own -- on behalf of your lifelong friend, and with the guidance of your own deepest Spirit. But whichever way your friend eventually leaves you -- you will feel as alone as a single star in the dark night.
If you are wise, you will let the tears flow as freely and as often as they must. And if you are typical, you will find that not many in your circle of family or friends will be able to understand your grief, or comfort you.
But if you are true to the love of the pet you cherished through the many joy-filled years, you may find that a soul -- a bit smaller in size than your own -- seems to walk with you, at times, during the lonely days to come.
And at moments when you least expect anything out of the ordinary to happen, you may feel something brush against your leg -- very, very lightly.
And looking down at the place where your dear, perhaps dearest, friend used to lie -- you will remember those three significant days. The memory will most likely to be painful, and leave an ache in your heart.
As time passes the ache will come and go as if it has a life of its own. You will both reject it and embrace it, and it may confuse you. If you reject it, it will depress you. If you embrace it, it will deepen you. Either way, it will still be an ache.
But there will be, I assure you, a fourth day when -- along with the memory of your pet -- and piercing through the heaviness in your heart -- there will come a realization that belongs only to you. It will be as unique and strong as our relationship with each animal we have loved, and lost. This realization takes the form of a Living Love -- like the heavenly scent of a rose that remains after the petals have wilted, this Love will remain and grow -- and be there for us to remember. It is a love we have earned. It is the legacy our pets leave us when they go. And it is a gift we may keep with us as long as we live. It is a Love which is ours alone. And until we ourselves leave, perhaps to join our Beloved Pets -- it is a Love we will always possess.

Looking back on the memory of
the dance we shared, beneath the stars above.
For a moment all the world was right,
how was I to know that you'd ever say good bye?
And now I'm glad I didn't know
the way it all would end, the way it all would go.
Our lives are better left to chance,
I could have missed the pain,
but I'd have had to miss the dance.
Excerpt from “The Dance” by Tony Arata

Good morning my sweet angel. I just had to stop by and let you know how much I love you. I was going through some of your photos this morning and brought one up on the computer screen - the one where you were on the back porch laying on your animal print blanket. Looking at your soulful eyes, I just can't seem to get over the fact you are gone, and the tears just flow. I miss you my angel... so much. mommy

|Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all...
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life's been full, I've savoured much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief—
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.

Thank you so much for stopping by to wish Kia a happy birthday,,,,,,,
We humans are prone to chase rainbows,
always wanting that pot of gold.
But the wisest of us remember the joy
of just a small creature to hold.
Allow yourself to accept their great gift,
and know what devotion is worth.
If you've been loved by a dog or a cat,
you're the richest person on earth.
But their lives are lived in miniature-
bright sun to palest moon.
They bless our days with innocence,
and faithfulness that's stilled too soon.
These precious lives are fragile,
as fleeting as a baby's smile.
So give them all the love you have.
They're only ours for a little while.
And in the lonely moments
when you pause to wonder why,
hold close those brightest shooting stars
that burn so briefly in our sky.
But then look deeper in your heart
to know all love must intertwine,
and when the night sky seems the darkest,
you'll see their light forever shine.

Gina... How absolutely beautiful your Saada is! And those big brown loving eyes of hers grabbed onto my heart -- they so reminded me of a certain special sweet yellow lab I know :) What a wonderful memorial tribute you have created for your girl. Clearly, Saada is a much-loved dog! I am so very happy that you enabled her to experience what it was like to have a great home and a warm, loving family before she journeyed to the Rainbow Bridge. So many shelter and rescue dogs never get to experience that. What a gift you gave her. It is hard to say which one of your was more fortunate -- You to have her, or Saada to have you. It sounds as though you were a match made in Heaven! And I am glad that my Molly was there to greet your Saada the day she crossed the Bridge, as I can see from Saada's face that they both share a gentleness in their souls and I know they have become the very best of friends. I definitely know your pain, but I also believe you will see your sweet girl again one day. Until that day, may your loving memories of your beautiful Saada bring your comfort and peace.
Take Care, Skye
P.S... Thank you for visiting Molly's online memorial and for leaving such kind words. I appreciate it. I am working hard to add more pages before her 1 -year "Angel-versary" on the 15th. Some pages will be more upbeat, and so feel free to stop back in a week or so and check them out if you wish.

Thank you Gina and sweet Saada for stoppin by (and a much belated Happy Birthday Saada). It's still hard and maybe it always will be. Knowing that others care and understand really helps more than many know.
