its hard to believe a year has gone by since ember had to leave. we spent over 7 years together. i still remember our first snowfall, a big storm, well over 14". went for walkies and she just went nanners. i had a snow dog :lol :lol i still remember our first visit to the shore...the waves were a scary thing. i remember taking her to see lucy the elephant in margate. one summer i worked for a friends catering company that fed the rock stars when they came through the philly area. whenever the shows were out of town, i was able to bring ember and a crate. she spent a lot of time at hershey park stadium and arena when people like david bowie, moody blues and kiss rocked the summer night. she even saw bette midler and bruce falanche (sp). she was also there for the bad times. she stood with me greeting mourners at my dad's funeral. i owe a debt of gratitude to strifflers in white oak for allowing me to bring her. she stood beside me at his grave when the honor guard snapped to attention as they lifted his casket from the hearse. she barely flinched as the guns went off. i couldnt have asked for a better friend and companion. soon after my dad passed, osteo struck and her work here was finished. it was a cold january morning much like today when she was called elsewhere. i cried my eyes out...real men arent afraid to cry. all the vets and staff were in tears as well. sigh...i miss you girlie, and i love you.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Tom, how can that be? A year? Wow! I think it shows she really is still present in our thoughts and the memories you have shared this past year.

Oh Tom, you were so blessed to have such a remarkable hound in your life. She will never really be gone. She's always going to be with you, guiding you through the hounds that have and will follow her into your life. She whispers in your ear every day, reminding you of the love, given and recieved, between the two of you. It is what makes your heart smile at the way she wanders through your mind in the quiet of the night and when you least expect it. There she will stay, right where she belongs...

Tom,

 

From afar I remember this day all too well. She was a beautiful girl and you were both lucky to have each other.

She touched so many lives braving the battle and broke so many hearts when she had to leave. I can't tell you how many times I tuned in to the Ember Cam - just to get a glimpse - I was satisfied with that. I would never have thought that I would eat a cheeseburger with a special kind of reverence, but I do. And how can anyone who read her story pass a Mickey D's and not think of her? We all mourn with you today.
