Tribute to Jean's Nina

<span style='font-family: Arial Black'> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Remember Me </span> </span>

<span style="color: #FF0000"> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>When you see a little piece of paper or cardboard that you swear wasn't there just a little while ago, that is me sharing my treasures with you.

When you see a pretty little piece of sparkle or pretty ribbon that you don't know how it got there, that is me.

When the sun is shinning so much that you have to squint your eyes, that is me saying hello.

When you see a beautiful butterfly floating around, that is me just checking if you want to play a little game.

When it is snowing and those flakes land on you, that is me giving kisses, especially to my dog pals when those snow flakes land right on your nose.

When you look up at the night sky and see that one star that is just a little brighter than the rest, what is me sharing some of my glitter collection.


Remember me this way. </span> </span>



<span style="color: #FF0000"> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>I will be checking on you from time to time, but I won't be there all the time. This girl is going to be busy meeting all these good looking doggies. Well gotta go there is one I just have to meet.
Loves Nina </span> </span>

Awww Val.... I'm so sorry. Nina looks so beautiful in that photo. What a great poem as well, it's very touching.

Rest in peace, Nina.

Re: Tribute to Jean's Nina

Thank you Val.

Isn't it beautiful-I love it.

Nina would take tiny little pieces of paper or cardboard and hide them in her bed. When anyone would walk by she would come out of the door to yell at them. It would take me forever to find the treasure she was hiding. Once it was a teeny star from 4th of July garland.

Thank you all again. It has been a shocking week and a half to be sure. One that was made easier by everyone's help and support and love for Nina.

She was a wonderful dog, a perfect fit here. She waited for me to come back to Cornell and get her, and then she knew she could let go. Her final gifts were so sweet-a wagging tail and pulling to get to the car, a final burger, de-eyeing her pig, and in her final time with me, looking for me when I would move away, and letting me know it was time to let her leave us.

Re: Tribute to Jean's Nina

Oh Jean I'm so sorry for your loss. I haven't followed Nina's story b/c of our Golden & her issue. You have helped & gave me great advice with that issue & I thank you for taking time to do so when dealing with your own issues.

I didn't know Nina was that bad until seeing this post. I'm in tears right now as I type & feel deeply for your loss. I feel soon I will have to face that dreaded deed with our Golden. This will be the first dog I have ever lost. She is our first dog, & then the GS's came about.

I hate this part of having pets .............

My thoughts are with you at this hard time.

Nina you pretty black beauty (love them blacks) run free.........
