Thank You

Gooses Friends.

I find it hard to express my thanks to each of you, there just are not words to truly express my deep gratitude for the overwhelming outpouring of love you have shared with me.  Each comment, email, card, plant, flowers, and donations made in Gooses memory to St. Anne's Homeless Shelter has meant so much and touched me deeply.
I miss him so much, but your outpouring of love for him has and is helping me heal.  There are days that I feel so lost but all I have to do is breathe deeply and look at all the cards I have received, smell the fragrance of the flowers and touch the sticks many of you have sent him over the years and my heart smiles.  A friend shared this saying with me from Winne the Poo: "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good-bye so hard".  It's true, I was so lucky and beyond blessed to have shared my life with Goose and for him to share his life with me.  He will forever be my song.
I still feel him with me and I will share with you what happened the other night.  As some of you know Goose was very in tune with me.  Without training he would know when I was slipping in to a coma like state.  Sometimes he would warn me well in advance.  Sometimes when I would not respond to his warnings he would do whatever he could to get my attention or to wake me up.  Including barking, pulling at my hand, put his paws on my chest and push up and down.  He would do anything to get me to respond.  Several nights ago when Bert was staying over my house I was trying to sleep.  I remember dreaming.  I recall seeing Goose, romping, saving sticks, smiling at me.  Then he stopped and came real close to me with that concerned look on his face.  It was then I felt a thump on my chest.  I sort of came to.  The thump on my chest was Bert dropping his ball on me.  Then I realized that my levels were dangerously low, 41 when normal range is 80 to 120.  I was able to drag my self to the kitchen and take some meds and soon my levels returned to normal.  While I know some may find it silly, but I really felt that Goose was still looking out for me and maybe through my dream and his ball crazed buddy, Bert , Goose helped me that night.
Thank you again to each of you.  I am not sure what the future holds as far as Gooses blog, but I do know that I will continue to cruise through Blogville to see what you all are up to.

Until We Meet Again.

Hello My Dear Friends.

Well my friends my time has come.  At 1PM Monday I made my journey over the Rainbow Bridge.  My MOM was there to help be make this last journey.  Miss Vickie was there too and my MOM’s dear friend Cindy.  I was surrounded by lots and lots of love.

There are now words to express how much each of you have meant to me.  You shared your lives with me and I was a much better dog because of it.  What a journey we have had, am I right?

My parting words to you is this: Live each day to the fullest, for it is a gift.  Love often, growl less.  Take time to smell the roses.  Let those who surround you know they are loved.  Life is beautiful my friends, so see it, share it, create it.  Oh and this one last thing, STICKS!!!!  If you see a stick in need do me a favor, help it out.

To my buddy Bert: Bert I am counting on you to help take care of my MOM.  She is going to need a fluffy Golden boy like you to hold on to for a little bit.

To my MOM: MOM I have loved you from the moment you walked past me trying not to notice me.  It was fate, God’s will that we were meant to be together.  For 15 years you have been my everything.  No doggie could have asked for a more loved, blessed and beautiful life.  I will miss you dearly, butt know I will be watching over you for as long as you walk this earth until that day we are reunited.  I love you MOM with everything I am.

Until we meet again my friends.
Such a heart felt thank you to each of you.  I will miss Goose with every fiber of my being.  At this moment I am so lost without him.  I am not sure what I will do without him.  Tears just keep falling.  Yes they are tears, lots of tears. But they are not just tears of sadness but tears of overwhelming joy for all the beautiful years we had together.  Thank you gain for all your love and support.
