Shanti

 

My ultimate heart dog, diva, Princess, primadonna and occasional PITA. ;)

 

My heart is utterly shattered as I let my girl go to rainbow bridge yesterday. Her body just gave out on her. Not fair. We got Shanti December 8, 2006. We picked her up from her spay surgery and brought her home. She immediately peed in my ex's car. Even funnier now. ;) She came into our house and was the queen. We were her humble servants. Lol! She was a snuggle bug when possible. If you laid on the floor she came running to spoon with you. She is the only dog I've known to purr when she was happy. It was the cutest thing. She would always throw her head between your knees for neck scratches and loving. If you were sitting near her, you were demanded to hold her paw with your hand. She was a sassy one!!!

 

She was not small animal safe. She reminded me of that with a few gifts she left me on my seat. Rat and a opposum on my couch. Awesome, thanks girl! :( guessing everyone heard me scream on those when I found them. Ha! She got a few birds too. Sorry critters!

 

She had a lot of health issues we were battling. We didn't think she would live past 3. Lots of specialist and 11 1/2 years later she succumbed to the health problems. Certainly not without fighting back for all she was worth.

 

She brought so much joy to my life. I am forever grateful for her introducing me into the world of greyhounds and the wonderful people here. I came to GT searching for help on a few "issues". ;) We got through them all and I've gained some amazing friends. I owe her so much for that!

 

Nothing will ever replace the hole she left me with, but we will see each other again. Until then sweet Shanti... I love you dearly!!!!!

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

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry
