One Year Without My Girl


Recommended Posts

So hard to believe it's been a year without Misty, I often wonder how we made it through.

Life changed so much after she left, the house was just so quiet it was hard to be home.


It was difficult to leave the desert as it was Misty's home, and as much as I know she stays in my heart, it was still tough to leave. She was everywhere in that house and in that yard, all her favorite spots, the streets we walked now left behind.


To this day while I'm on the phone, I miss her talking to me because she wanted a marshmallow. Misty was a pro whiner. I miss that. She totally ruled Ekko and Wayne, even as little as she was, she was mighty.


She will always be my heart and always be my little bo-peep girl :beatheart

The one year anniversary is very tough, went through it last December with my Ginger. It's true, life is never the same. They touch us very deeply. Hugs to you.:bighug

What a pretty girl she was. I wish I could have met her. :wub:



ETA--Oh my gosh. Your thread made me think of my Cosmo and it will be six years to the day and date on Tuesday that she went to the Bridge. Daisy is soft like a bunny, but CoCo was my velveteen girl--she was silky, velvety soft.


Lucky and Daisy send their love.

:grouphug The greatest gift we can receive is a dog who is our heart-and-soul. Misty was your heart girl on so many levels, Claudia. And while your greatest memories of her were from CA, she'll be in your heart and soul no matter where you live.


You and Misty were each other's soulmate, and I just know that even in RI, she's right there with you, letting you know that the depth of love you had for each other transcends death. Misty will always be alive in your heart.


Enormous hugs, my friend.

......But a year Claudia, that has brought great change for you. Changes, thoughts and feelings that were colored by your beautiful girl. The way you see yourself, the hounds, your world and how you interact with each has been painted in shades of Misty and her unconditional love and companionship. We love in return and learn from each of our hounds as well as those around us. Misty gave, and continues to give, the best of herself through you. Kindness, patience, independent spirit and the ability to give unconditionally. Inturn, you pass it on to those who come after, both human and hound.


At this one year anniversary of sadness in your life, my hope, my wish for you, is a fondness of memory and gentle reflections of your precious Misty with a heart healing well.82wr49g.gif

A whole year, already? :cry1:cry1 Hard to believe... :(


I am so sorry she is no longer physically with you, Claudia... you must miss her so much. But I know she is in your heart always, and our loved ones truly do live on in the smiles they elicit when we think of them, and the laugh we spontaneously break into when remembering a habit they had or an expression they wore... may you continue to treasure all your beautiful memories of Misty, and draw comfort from them.

Your sweet little Misty was with you on your journey to your new home. She truly was your

guardian angel the whole way and made sure that you arrived safely.

All the good memories have been bundled up and came along with on that trip.

She's still with you and always will be, no matter where you are.

Bless you sweet lady.

:grouphug She was so loved and knew it. She had a really greyt mom and knew that too. Both of you were blessed to have each other. I know how hard this day is and the only thing that I can smile about is that I am sure Alan finally got to meet Misty. :f_pink
