Emotional Roller Coaster Rides

Life is so strange sometimes....

On Thursday, 9/10/09, around lunch time, I sent off an email to my friend Mary, also known as Mary Martin, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter Director. I asked her what her opinion was of adopting another dog after the so recent loss of such a love as my HeartDog Rico. I told her I was deeply depressed and unsure of how to pull myself out of this. I also told her I had been scanning over the "Adoptable Dogs" on their web site and my mouse kept clicking and… Continue

Strange happenings

I am still reeling from the blow of Rico's totally unexpected death.

I have never been a very spiritual person. If I can't see it, it simply does not exist for me. Or does it?

In the 11 days since Rico left us, hopefully to be in a peaceful, painfree place, I met some amazing people and heard some amazing stories.

My wonderful friend Renee has told me over and over again…Rico is still here, all you need to do is be calm and be open to the signs…For any of you… Continue

Scoop....a healing place

This afternoon, one of our fellow Scoopers, who I had never met before but exchanged posts with here, walked into my business to speak to me. I will keep her identity anonymous unless she tells me it is okay to say who it was.

She had seen my blog posts about my beloved Rico and came to bring me a beautiful silver ring. She said she had purchased it for herself but felt it should be mine. It has paw prints on the outside and on the inside it has the engraving of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.… Continue

Painful struggles

Life rushes on, relentlessly. And we try to cope, go on. My husband and I went away for the weekend on a road trip with our dog Nita. So silly! We cannot escape our thoughts! Memories of Rico were everywhere, we had been so many places with him, never leaving him because he was such a special needs little boy from his chronic and severe epilepsy to the horrific hit and run accident a few years back and, last week, another bout with pancreatitis, even though we were so careful about what Rico… Continue

Words of comfort from a friend

The House Dog's Grave (Haig, an English bulldog)

I've changed my ways a little; I cannot now

Run with you in the evenings along the shore,

Except in a kind of dream; and you, if you dream a moment,

You see me there.

So leave awhile the paw-marks on the front door

Where I used to scratch to go out or in,

And you'd soon open; leave on the kitchen floor

The marks of my drinking-pan.

I… Continue
