Are you Fishing in Heaven?

This is your 1 yr Bridge Annivesary, Buddy. It is still hard after all this time...I think I miss you even more now. So much has happened this year; our family has undergone much change. Your Dad and I, along with other family members have struggled with health issues, milestone birthdays, engagements, storm damage. We had to cut down the two large maples in the backyard due to storm damage. You loved laying under their beautiful branches, now they are gone too. The little girl (Lily), next door that loved you so is now in Middle School. We also lost your pal "Chief" at the cabin this summer. His Mom and Dad laid him to rest under his doghouse. I hope you met again at the Bridge. Mostly, we missed you at the cabin. It will neve be the same without you. Never met a dog that loved to fish like you did! Everytime we went fishing, sat on the dock, had a campfire, walked the woods, swam in "your" lake, we missed you. The holidays are right around the corner, and we can't even shop for your present. So...instead...we are going tomorrow to buy Kong toys (your all time favorite), and treats for the shelter dogs at the kennel. We also donated money in your name to the new fish cribs on the lake. You would like that. We lit a candle for you tonight, and said a prayer, that you are warm, whole, and surrounded by light and love. We do love you Buddy..Always and Forever...Your loving Mom.

I was thinking of you today. Those anniversary dates are so hard, and yours is around holidays what makes it even harder. You did wonderful things in memory of your Buddy, he is very proud of his mom. Your heartfelt words and shared memories of your Bud make me cry, I wanted to say something nice, encouraging but cant find the words, just tears for our Buddys for you and me missing them so much. I am so sorry. Hugs.

I know that Buddy is smiling down at you at this difficult time. I'm in tears as well. Thinking of you at this difficult time.

I truly believe our dogs are still with us in spirit, they are right beside us and watching over us. One day we will be reunited.

I hope time will ease your pain and you will be able to find peace. The anniversaries and the first of anything is always the hardest. I lost by old guy almost 2 years ago in Feb. So hard to believe it's been that long already. In some ways it seems like a life time ago and in others it seems like it was only yesterday. We will always miss him as you will your Buddy.

I'm sure Buddy is fishing in heaven and he will greet you with some of his catch.

Buddy: I know you're watching over your Mom and Dad from the Rainbow Bridge. Have fun fishing with my Smooch and Snobear there!

Buddy, Grandma's Christmas mug played for her this morning. (this Christmas mug cannot be wound up any longer, it has been broken for several years) She was in the kitchen, not feeling well and had sat down near the window. Grandpa, who passed over 19 years ago gave it to her one Christmas. Every year since it has played off and on during the holidays. We have all witnessed it. It played today again for her. Grandpa was a high school Orchestra teacher, and it would be just like him to send her a message through music. Cannot explain it, many have examined the mug, and just do not have an explanation "why". I prefer to think it is Grandpa's love for Grandma, and that everything will be okay.Buddy, I hope you are with both of the Grandpa's. In this world they would have loved you so. They surely do in yours. Peace, sweet boy....

Merry Christmas my sweet Buddy. We opened gifts after Church, ate lots of food, played games, enjoyed Christmas music. All that was missing was you. I dreamed about you last night, and it was wonderful. So real and happy. I think it was you letting me know you are okay and never really far away. At least that's what I want to believe. Either way, it did my heart good. Kisses and hugs sent your way, Sleep in heavenly peace my sweet boy.

Buddy, I joined this forum 1 year ago today...to connect with others going through loss, remembering you, and what to do to with all these feelings of heartbreak and pain. I am still missing you so much, and wishing you were still by my side. I have found many others here that have the same feelings, and understand the pain. It does help; in part because I can still remember you here and talk about you. It is snowing outside right now, big fluffy flakes, the kind we liked to walk in, make snow angels. I was putting some Christmas wrapping paper away downstairs, and came across some of your toys in one of your toy baskets. Cried again. Dad's going ice fishing tomorrow, and I know he will miss your "helping" out on the ice. You loved taking off with the fish, and sliding around with the kids, chasing their sleds. I know in my heart you are in God's place...Rainbow Bridge, but wishing you were right here. You have been gone 13 months and 2 days. Loving and missing you always and forever.
