Snowy visit in September

I dreamt of my girl last night.

It was a little surreal... but then, it was a dream, after all.

The Boy and his friend Frodo were playing in the back yard, in an inch or two of snow. We were inside watching from the living room. I looked over to the corner of the room, and at the other end of that wall of windows, there stood Cub.


She was standing in the snow, but in our living room, which seemed to be perfectly normal, given the situation. She watched the boy dogs play in the yard, and she watched us watching her, too.

I still miss her, but I'm glad she came for a visit.

Dear "Dog and God" - your love for your girl is so touching. I'd like to share my family's love for our pets, too. We had a female Aussie that my (at that time, young) daughter named "Bell". Over the years she became my dog more than anyone else's. She followed me EVERYWHERE, all the time. I did not need to fear her walking off leash. She would never stray from my side. And she smiled. She actually showed her teeth in a smile! I loved her so much. One day "MyBell" (as I gradually renamed her) did not follow me around the house when I was readying for work as she normally did. I somehow knew that she was just too tired. I knelt down beside her where she lay on her pet bed before leaving for work and whispered to her that it was okay, that if she had to leave, that I would understand and that she would always be with us and in our hearts. I did not want to go to work, but I did...and thought of her all day. When my daughter got home from school that day, she found Bell had passed...resting on her pet bed. I know MyBell is still here with us (I feel her) and also that I will see her again.
We at the same time had another aussie named Jazzie. He adored our daughter, playing with her, sleeping in her room, aggravating her in fun. He fully adopted her as HIS person. Jazzie also is now gone, but we can still feel him here with us. He comes to my daugher in her dreams. When she was recovering from a tonsillectomy, she awoke to see him on her bed. I believe he was there, in spirit...and he is still very much in our thoughts.
We have new dogs in our family now, but our others are still part of our family as well.
Sometimes I feel silly to swoon over my pets almost as much as I would over people -- but their love is so unconditional, their souls so honest...I know God appreciates those who love his creations.
Know that you are in good company. Your girl still is with you.

(I can't recall how I posted my blog last time, so I will sign from "whatsinaname".)
