Dear Windy,


In your death this morning, I know we were meant to be together now more than ever. I gave you a home and you gave me so much more. I didn’t rescue you, you actually rescued me–and I am so grateful that I was given the honor to love, care for and protect you each day.

Your love has always been huge and gentle. Your sweetness in life has brought such joy to all who have met you and known you. Windy, thank you. I love you and you will always be in my heart. I will miss you and I know I will see you again one day. Until then, know that your 12+ years on this earth with me brought me great love and taught me about so much.

My puppy daughter Windy, sleep sweet.

Dear Sheba,

April 10,2009 was the best day of my life, I went to the shelter looking for a dog that I saw online but by the time I got there the dog was adopted. It was disappointing but mom said lets just look around anyways, We walked around the shelter and there were so many cute dogs but not one had the special feeling. Then we walked by you and you just looked at us and there was something there, We saw someone else looking at you but we grabbed your card and found someone to take you to the playroom..We stayed for a bit and then we walked away because we weren’t sure that we were ready for another dog in our lives. Losing my last dog was very hard and I didn’t want to replace him. But after talking about it Mom said lets go get you so we went back they brought you back to the room and the lady asked what is making you hesitant and mom said I just don’t feel the connection that’s when you said well I do and went over and licked her face until she said you are coming home :) You mean everything to us.. A few quirks but quite a personality. My only wish is that you let others see that personality and not to be afraid of people.. When you came to this house I made a promise that no one or anything will ever hurt you. I dont know your past but I know that you have two people who love you and are very glad you came in to our lives.. There is a bumper sticker that I like and that is very true..It says WHO RESCUED WHO??? You rescued me :) Thanks Sheba!
