  1. Oh Cindy, I'm so sorry. You and your family are in my thoughts.
  2. Sydney - Part 2

    aww Michelle, I'm so sorry to read about Charlie. He was such a great dog with so much character. Sending you huge hugs. He is now back with his girl Sydney. I'm sure its one heck of a reunion.
  3. Merry Christmas Cindy and Justice!!! Much love and happiness to you both. P.S. is your email still the mac email? I sent you an email a couple days ago, just want to make sure you got it.
  4. Go Justice!!!!! So happy to see the train again I got a promotion with the rescue I've been volunteering with for almost 3 years. They restructured the adoption portion and I am the Application Training Coordinator. I train and mentor all the new volunteers on how to process the adoption applications we get in. We are trying to standardize everything. We are so desperate for volunteers to process so we can get these dogs new homes. I'm loving it! I hope you are relaxing now that Justice is back on track, I worry about your health too Love you guys
  5. I just couldn't post this with Justice's train thread but I have some sad news. Margret Fielder who was mom to Sally here on IMOM passed away back in September. She was only 64 years old. I just found out about it yesterday. Her animals (7 cats and 5 dogs) are being cared for by her very good friend and she is finding homes for them. I messaged her last night and she told me that she has found homes for 5 of the cats but the dogs are still needing homes. Margret was an amazing person, everything she did she did for the animals in her care. When she got sick she still managed to take care of them. If anyone would like to make a donation to the care of her animals you can donate to Shepherds Hope Rescue just make sure to let her know its for Margret Fielders dogs. I'm so sorry to put a damper on Justice's day but I thought you would want to know. Love you guys
  6. This has made my day. To see the train rolling again. I know its been a hard road for you and Justice after losing Tuckie but you are healing.
  7. Thinking of you Cindy, the first's are the hardest but you know Tuckie is with you in spirit. I'm glad Justice is doing better, I hope he continues. Much love and hugs to you both
  8. Happy Birthday Cindy, I'm so glad Justice is doing better. Yesterday was 1 year since I lost Riley, I know he and Tuckie are celebrating your Birthday at the bridge with loads of cake and ice cream. Enjoy your day, I hope its filled with sunshine and solid poops
  9. Tyson chews on plastic. He loves to get in the cupboard and chew on the plastic wrapping for the toilet paper. He'll chew on plastic grocery bags, but he never eats them. I think he likes the noise. I hope Justice just being quiet is him grieving for Tuck. And now Jax I'm finding likes to chew on power cords and plug ends. I went to plug in my tablet cord and there were little chew marks all over the end. Remember there is no time frame for grief and everyone reacts differently, I would say the same goes for dogs too. Try not to worry about him, he'll be picking up on your worry too. Love and hugs to you and Justice xxx
  10. Didn't you get a calming collar one time? They worked great for Riley and Jake. I would definitely try one again. And don't you have a thunder shirt for Justice? I'd get that out too and try it. Dogs like people experience grief differently. I know after Riley was gone Jake would do things that he hadn't done since I had first got him, mostly stuck up my butt. I couldn't go anywhere in the house without him right behind me. So Justice could be experiencing a bit of separation anxiety. I put Riley's calming collar on him and after a while he was fine. He still has it on and I'm debating on whether to get him another one as its almost a year old. Been super busy which is good. And I'm so glad you saw a sign from Tuckie. I remember when Spike died I actually saw him under the coffee table and reached down to pet him but nothing was there to touch. So much to catch up on. Jax is doing great none of the cats hiss at him anymore but he tries to get Tyson to play and he's a bit rough so when I tell Jax to knock it off, Tyson comes running to me just like a little tattle tale lol. Jake is finally realizing that not all cats are bad and he and Jax are getting to be best buds. Every morning when we get up Jax gets the zoomies and entertains me while I have my coffee. He will play with anything and loves the plastic rings off the water jugs and Jake's tail. Jake doesn't mind until he sinks his teeth into it but he's never retaliated he just moves it or sits on it lol He's one special guy and I'm so glad I got him. Love and hugs to you and Justice xxx
  11. My heart is breaking for you Cindy, I can imagine how painful it was to recount Tuckie's last day with you. It took me 5 years before I could tell everyone about Bear's last day with me. You have much more courage than I did. The pain will get less, it just takes time, and its not in hours or days. Everything you do now will remind you of Tuckie because he was such a huge part of your life. Grieve my friend, let the tears flow they are cleansing, and healing to your heart. I like this quote from Jim Willis: "We don't get over losing the dogs who have been a part of our lives. We just get used to living without them." Tuckie will always be in your heart and in the hearts of all of us. Some day you will be able to look back on the time you had with him with a smile and no more tears. It will be 10 years in October that I lost Bear, I like to think he and Tuckie have met at the Bridge along with Riley, and Spike and they are all watching over us until we can meet them again.
  12. Wow Michele, that is great! Going to share it on facebook, I know some people who could use it. Cindy - thinking of you and Justice
  13. Hoping you made it thru today and all went well with Justice. Take your time, we all understand.Thinking of you and Justice xxxx
  14. Huge hugs still being sent. I'm so sorry Justice had a GM. I hope things will settle down a little very soon. The pain of that day is still fresh, but over time it will lessen and you will be able to talk about it without tears. I remember someone telling me that and I thought they were crazy, but it will happen. There is no set time for grief, everyone is different and we all grieve differently. Be kind to yourself and don't try to set any goals, its a process that needs to go thru the steps. Thinking of you and Justice XXX
  15. Take your time, be with justice and let him be with you. Talk to him he'll understand. Sending you comforting hugs, I so wish I could take away your pain xxx
