Two Weeks Later....


Pippin

It was two weeks ago today, and just about this time, when I walked into the vet’s office with my little Jessie for one last visit.

 

I left the following Monday on a 10-day business trip, so this is the first weekend I’ve been back home since that sad day.

 

Last weekend, I dreamt that I was in a small house, visiting with friends. My little Jessie was sitting beside me on the sofa while we visited. Towards the end of the dream, one of my friends mentioned her, and I replied something along the lines of “Oh, this is my little dog, Jessie. But she’s not really here. She died last week, but I remember how she looked and how she felt, so I can have her with me whenever I want to.” My dream then faded into another dream, which meant it should have been forgotten, but as I was brushing my teeth the next morning, I remembered it. I’m glad I remembered it, because I fully believe its message was true.

 

As long as I remember my little girl, she’ll always be with me.

 

I’m house-sitting this weekend, for my dog-sitter (a wonderful lady who keeps my girls at the drop of a hat). So as I was driving in from the airport Thursday night, heading straight to my dog-sitter’s house, I started realizing that for the first time since she’s been my dog-sitter, there won’t be a little dog there, so happy to see me that she can’t stop quivering.

 

So I called one of my good friends and said “who am I gonna snuggle with tonight? My snuggler’s not here anymore.” She didn’t really have an answer for me (there’s not really an answer to a question like that). I got to the house, and let the dogs out to run in the backyard. But one of them wouldn’t run out.

 

Little Giorgio, an elderly italian greyhound, has appointed himself as my special friend this weekend. If I’m sitting in a chair, he wants to be on my lap. If it’s bedtime, he’s snuggled up beside me, keeping my back warm.

 

This intrigues me, because George was out in the van as we were helping Jessie to the Rainbow Bridge, and right about the time she was gone, he started barking. Doc suggested that maybe Jessie had stopped at the van to say goodbye to George. Usually, when I’m house-sitting, George hangs out in his little bed, covered up with his blanket, sleeping. This weekend, he’s the most sociable I’ve ever seen him. He’s not Jessie, but he helps. :)

 

Thanks, George.

She gone from this earth, but not from your heart.

 

Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you.

Burpdog pointed me towards an ebay site with urns at VERY reasonable prices, so I picked out her urn today. I'm not going to actually purchase it until I've figured out when I can afford the cremation. I'm hoping that will be relatively soon, because I'd like to bring her home. I'll be using a place that Dee recommends, and has used for years. It's as affordable as the places Doc knew about, and it's guaranteed individual cremation. I'm finding that matters to me.

 

*sigh* I hate that I have to spend time thinking about stuff like this. I hate that she's gone, even though I know she's better off.

I'm glad George is taking care of you. She must have put a bug in his ear about it.

 

Sharing some tears with you guys this evening.

One more part of making it real....

 

I finally emailed my non-GT friends and let them know she was gone. Some of them had met her, others hadn't, but all knew about her, and knew how much I loved her.
