    Thanks for your messages Cynderyella and Paula! I have a question for you or anyone else who is reading. About 11 years ago, after my previous dog died I used an animal communicator to talk to her spirit. I'm open to things like that. However, since that time there are a lot more professionals in the animal communicator field and I don't want to trust just anyone. If you've had a positive experience with this kind of thing and have been assured that your animals's spirit was really contacted could you share that with me? Could you tell me how you knew it was your animal? I'm not saying that Jenna wouldn't communicate with me directly, but my skills are not as good as someone who has more experience and might be better able to get a good connection. HAPPY TAILS! Deborah & Jenna

    HOWL & HELLO Here's a poem that was inspired by my "Jenna" after she passed. MY GIFT FROM ABOVE You came from Heaven and touched my heart. From that time on we were seldom apart. You were a wise, loving and patient soul, Who was sent to heal and help make me whole. Your eyes held the knowledge of all eternity. You were a perfect picture of serenity. We took good care of one another. You loved and trusted me like no other. I taught you a little, you taught me more. I'm a better person than I was before. It's awesome to think as I pause in reflection, You gave my life purpose and changed its direction. What I did to deserve you, I may never know. But you brought me this far and now you must go. I tried saving your life, but you saved mine instead. With the courage you gave me I can now move ahead. By following your example I'm learning to love. Thank God for you, my Gift from Above.

    HOWL & HELLO I just read the messages from Midnights Mommy, Tracy and Mike. Thanks so much for sharing your caring thoughts. I'm in the process of researching options for Jenna's memorial service. I think focusing on something else I can do for Jenna is one thing that's helping me get through this time of loss. I also talk to Jenna every day. I don't want her to think that just because her body is gone that she is forgotten. Had a dream about her a few days ago. I was petting her and thinking how wonderful it was that she was still alive when the vet had already put her to sleep. I hope Jenna blesses me more with her presence in my dreams. Blessings to all! LOVE, Deborah & Jenna

    HOWL & HELLO JENNA HAS BEEN SET FREE TO LIVE WITHOUT RESTRAINTS, WITHOUT A COLLAR OR A LEASH. TO DO WHATEVER SHE WISHES, WHENEVER SHE WISHES, TO LIVE IN TOTAL PEACE! Of course I miss Jenna. How could anyone not miss such a precious soul? Hopefully I can learn to embrace my grief instead of trying to ignore it. But it also feels like God is holding my hand and giving me comfort. Plus there are SO MANY friends that are showering me with support, including my IMOM friends. On Friday, as you know, I decided to take Jenna to the vet because her condition went frombeing stable to getting worse and worse. I prayed that morning asking for God's guidance. As it turned out, in addition to the vet's recommendation I was able to contact, Robin, a dog trainer/animal communicator that I've known and used for 7 years. Before I made a final decision I asked her to connect with Jenna. I did not tell Robin the vet's prognosis. What Robin told me after checking in with Jenna, is that she was very tired & sick but also at peace and she wanted me to know that it was time to let go. Talk about an answer to prayer. When it was time, Jenna and I were in a nice room on a couch and I had been petting and talking to her for a few hours. While the vet was preparing the injection, Jenna put her head in my lap and when the needle was inserted in her leg, she didn't flinch. It was very peaceful. Of course I cried big tears and the tears, although not so big, continue to come and go. I hope I can live my life the way Jenna would have me live it. As much as possible, before reacting to situations or people with anger, irritation or worry, I wonder "What effect will this have on Jenna?" Hopefully I'll get better at spreading love and peace as Jenna did. I could go on, but I'll end with the prayer of St Francis of Assisi, who you probably know was the Saint for the animals. Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is darkness, light; where there is despair, hope; where there is doubt, faith; where there is sadness, joy. Oh divine Master grant that I might not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood and to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are boring to eternal life. Amen LOVE, Deborah & Jenna

    HOWL & HELLO That's nice of you, Gail, to express your concern. Thank you very much. The appointment at the animal hospital yesterday was not what I expected. The vet said that even if Jenna got IV fluids, the effects wouldn't last more than a couple days to a week. So with it being so expensive, it probably won't be an option. I'm still going to check with my regular vet on Tuesday before making a final decision. However, the vet did say that kidney disease is not painful for the animal. The only discomfort would be the tiredness and nausea. I'm giving Jenna Pepcid AC for nausea. Have a fun Labor Day! I'll let you know what my vet suggests about the IV fluids on Tuesday. Love, Deborah & Jenna
