We had to say good-bye to our beloved Dusty last Monday. He fought a valiant fight against his cancer. His spirit was amazing.
Dusty was my first truly velcro, Momma's boy. Always at my side. He had the sweetest, most loving nature. He was always happy. He had so many fun-loving personality traits that I will forever miss. The pain of missing him feels like more than my heart can bear! I feel like I'm living in an alternate universe. I can't believe I'll never see or kiss that sweet face again.
We will ALWAYS love you, dear sweet Dusty and will ALWAYS miss you. You touched our hearts & lives in so many loving & amazing ways.
Loving & missing you with all our hearts ... :cry :hp
Dusty 10-11-2002 to 10-6-2014

:paw :hp :paw :hp For my precious, precious boys whom I miss so terribly much ...

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

I'm so sorry to hear this Susan. I was just wondering how he was doing the other night. I'm just so sorry and my heart goes out to you, to lose both of the boys so close together. :sad :hp

I'm so sorry for your loss. They were two of the "best-dressed" boys on the forum - with impeccable grooming all the time. I know you'll miss them dearly and hope that you will soon find peace that they are together again.

Susan....I, for one, truly believe you will hold him and kiss his sweet face again - even if many years from now. You will also feel him in the dim light when he jumps up on your bed or chair. You will feel his prescence in the shadow of your kitchen near you. They never go far from us. I am sorry for your loss and sorry it came so close to saying goodbye to Rocky. Please know that those of us that know your pain holds you close in thought. The loss of such a gentle being is always so very painful.

Susan, I'm so very sorry to read this. Praying for God's comfort for you. It's so terribly hard. I, too, know that you will see Dusty and Rocky Road again! I'm looking forward to the time when I'll see my Bonnie Girl again. :hp
