In the Spring, I will create a memorial area in the yard with the stone surrounded by white flowers.

Bittersweet! I love both of these photos, Walter. It just still seems so unreal. P
Paula got it just right "Daddy's Boy"--- my heart still aches for this loss for you, and for us.
I know you will do a beautiful job of making his final resting spot w/the memorial stone a place of tranquility, and beauty. Our chimes in the back garden are blowing up a storm today & it makes me remember all of our little ones whom we have loved so dearly. We have lost a few this year. I think more than usual.
Let us know how you are as it takes time to realize how empty some of the spots are, that were once so warm & filled w/fun times together.
Blessings to you, dear Walter.

Thanks Sandi,

There are good moments and bad. I am off work today, and I find the house so empty. There are times that I forget he is gone, like at night when I turn over, I still look over to make sure he is not in my path. I have spent a lot of time with Jamie; she loves to lay on top of me and be petted. Judy also had some small dogs she was taking care of, and I found a lot of joy just playing fetch with them. One of the dogs, a small poodle mix and Jamie came over, and it was like a tornado whirling by me. Jamie headed to where Luck's food dish was to check it out and Mitzi headed for Luck's toy box and pulled a bunch of toys out to play toss with.

Oh Walter, that is the perfect picture for the urn and the stone Paula got you is beautiful. I have my eyes tearing up again. I guess it's a reminder how quickly things can happen and to treasure every moment we have. It's so scary

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Awww, brought tears to my eyes. I have Sissy's urn in my bedroom with a precious picture of her. It used to make me cry but now it makes me smile. Time does heal a broken heart.

It's the perfect picture, Walter. He looks so peaceful resting in it and I love the stone Paula sent. It's all so perfect for Lucky.
I hope your doing okay.

It really is perfect, Walter. Isn’t it the weirdest feeling when you see a dog play with Lucks toys? It’s beautiful and bittersweet. Every so often I notice my husband will put up one of Bella’s toys so the boys can’t have it. He means no harm, he just loved her so much that he’s still protecting her in a way. She was our baby. We never got to hold our own children (since they went straight to be with God) but we got to hold Bella for 5 1/2 beautiful years. I pray a Wilson or Cooper will come in to your life the way these boys did for us. We owe them so much. They brought that much needed energy back in to our home. I think of you often. Big hugs.
