Hold on to what is good,
even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if I've gone away from you.
Pueblo Indian Prayer

Birthday blessings to gorgeous, sweet, wise, loyal, loving and courageous Machita, and Mom Diane, on beloved Machita's 16th birthday.
I met Machita ealier this month on her Angel day, Diane, but wanted to wish her well and honor Machita on her birthday, too. What a beautiful, elegant lady she will always be, Diane, wearing her muzzle of gray that will always bring a smile, and a tear, to the face of Lab lovers everywhere.
I again bless beloved Angels Machia and Flapper, and Mom Diane. I know you will continue to share a true and unconditional love forever.

For Diane and Family~
So much has been unspoken along the way
Hearts have healed and hearts have broken
In the pain of yesterday.
Gone are the shadows, vanished in the night
Let your heart surrender, let your soul take flight. Take care, xoxo Pat

Bless beautiful, giving, devoted, faithful, tender and brave Machita, and Mom Diane, on beloved Machita's 1yr Angel day.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Diane, on the first anniversary of the passing of your dear, sweet Machita. My family lost our beautiful little girl Cinnamon to cancer June 4, 2012, and we feel her absence, and all that she added to our daily lives, every day.
Bless you for sharing a wonderful home, life and love with you baby Machita, and for loving and respecting her as unconditionally and completely as she did you.
Bless gentle spirits and Angels Machita and Flapper, and Mom Diane who loves them so, on beloved Machita's first Angel day. May the love your share bring you some measure of peace until you are reunited forever.

I lost my Picky on Sept 9, 2010...yesterday Sept 12th, I found my Snowy dead on her blanket. I dont know how to carry on and its hard. Even knowing that she is at peace and out of pain from old bones, is not enough to reassure or make me feel better. I miss her so much. Your Machita was a beatuiful dog. I'm so sorry for your loss

Hello, Thank you so kindly for sending me an email about my angel Elvis. He was the closest creature to me in this entire world and I will never ever forget him. He was cremated on my birthday 9/6/12 and it will be an honor each year to share with him. Your sweet Machita may very well have met him at the gates. I am very sorry for your loss as well. Arleen

Machita has her very own star tonight. P
We sit beneath the night sky
by the whisper of the wind song...
in the quiet of darkness.
And they are never far.
Those we have loved and cherished,
those who have changed our lives
in some small or profound way
are closer than we know,
because it is their light
that shines on our world.
It is the brilliance
of their souls
that makes our night sky glow.

Diane, sorry it has taken this long to respond to your beautiful words on Missy's guestbook page. I am very concerned for you, as it is coming up on a month sinch your Machita passed. I wonder how you are doing, and I worry about your sadness. I know that, for me, like you, I was devastated for a long time, and only in the last few months have I realized that I have now started to smile at all the wonderful memories of my Missy rather than shed tears. I wear a necklace all the time that has her name engraved on the back, and on the front it has a paw print and says "Forever in My Heart." I feel so close to her always. I know that you are really struggling, because what we really want is our furbabies back. You and Machita are soulmates, and there's no separating that. I just want you to know that I am thinking of you with love and prayer, and will continue to do so, as you continue to grieve. Love and hugs, Carol

One more day, Diane, I know you would have given anything for one more day with your sweet Machita and your precious Flapper. That song means so very much to me, too, because I used to sing it to my Missy. I am so sorry for your loss of your Machita. I know the devastation you feel, and the guilt and the second-guessing as to whether you did the right thing. As time goes on, you'll realize that you made the right decision, that Machita was guiding you with your heart to make that decision. We had to make the same decision with our Missy, to send her into the Arms of Jesus rather than have her suffer another day on this earth. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you cope with your grief, as I have been in the very place you are now. I didn't know how to be me without my Missy. Over these many months, I have gradually come back to the person that Missy knew that I was, and I realize that so much of what I do now was influenced by Missy's life and love. I, like you, believe that we will meet our little precious furbabies at the Rainbow Bridge, and we will reunited in joy there someday. I hope that the wonderful memories that you have of Machita and of Flapper will help you to smile through the tears every now and then. Bless you. They are so lucky to have you for their mama, and you are a better person for having had them in your life. Love and hugs, Carol

Stopping by to honor and remember precious Machita on her birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL MACHITA!
We Celebrate You Today! :)
"What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose.
For all that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
~ (Helen Keller)
To Machita's Family --- I am deeply sorry to hear of the recent loss of your beloved Machita. I do understand how deep your pain is and how very much you miss her. She was definitely a very lucky girl to be so very LOVED! Thinking of you and your precious Machita today on her birthday and wishing you well. May the wonderful, happy memories of your sweet friend help to fill your heart for years to come until you meet again.
P.S.... I for one do believe that you heard Machita's collar, as I think our beloved furkids will often send us signs that they are still with us in spirit . And I find that the "signs" tend to crop up when one least expects it and is not actively looking for them - which makes them all the more special when we receive them.

What a loving, precious memorial to one of the sweetest dogs i have ever come across. The love you have for your girl jumps off of the pages and reminds me of th eloving bond I hadwith my 15 year old Picky.
Picky had to be sent to RainbowBridge on Sept 9,2010. Like your beautiful Machita, he was a part of my heart and my soul. And I miss him just as much nearly 2 years later.
I know you are huring sweetie. Its the worse kind of hurt.I know you long to have your baby girl next to you again, and when I read about her burial I broke down. It is obvious that you loved your precious girl.
Please know she is not far away from you.
God bless you

Your pain is so new. So raw. So real. You just los your precious Machita and I guess I just wanted to leave words with you that I understandt he pain you are going through on this devastating day.
I know you must have loved Machita with all of yoru heart and soul. I pray, and I hope that the memories of him will soften the blow of his departure. I have no doubt he's made it to Rainbow Bridge where he will await your arrival and you call out that name.
God bless you
