This would be your 13th Birthday today. I've tried to write this letter multiple times but tears keep me from typing it. Im thinking back to the Martin Luther King weekend you came home to in 2000. You were a dark bundle of sable fur and were so little we wrapped you in my sweater. You met Uncle Sam and Linda that first night . They thought you might be a two legged baby. You were the baby. Your first year you graduated puppy kindergarten.survived parvo and made friends with mandy ,the neighbor's perpetually loose dog. Every year on this day you got something special like pasta ,plain cheese pizza,steak ,lasagna and toys . You loved Thanksgiving cause it was usually your B-day weekend and you could get anyone to give you something from their plate. I can't believe Im not driving to get you special treats and I havent shopped for presents to give you. Sweetie you've been gone for 4 months now and I still miss you and when I leave in the morning still say Goodbye puppies. Daisy I hope you, Dodger and Sassy are together and playing and feasting on this your day. When I look back on your time with us I want to thank you for tolerating my first time GSD owner mistakes and all the things you put up with. I missed taking you to Cook's Forest and West Branch this fall. Well honestly I miss you every day. Lucky just started to lay on the deck by himself again. Yeah your pain in the butt little brother misses his sissy. You would have loved the cabin we went to this summer but it would not have been so quiet as you would have wanted to talk to every one who went by. Daisy you were a protector and an alarm for us. You got me help so many times when I had insulin reactions and when you couldnt you never left my side. Baby Boo I still love you and would give anything for one more canine kiss from you. I do know that where you are you will feel no pain ,no cancer can touch you and you still leap just as high as you used to. Happy Birthday my sweet girl. I love you.
Mom.

Dear Mom,

I love you and miss you too but I'm watching over you and Lucky as I chomp down on my birthday treats this weekend. I'm safe, pain free, running and with my friends. A long long long time from now you will see me, but remember that I always see you c: and Lucky. I'm still your protector even though I can't be by your side when you need help. And yes, I do leap very high above the weightless clouds.

Love Daisy

Thanks everybody.You guys have been great. Ive tried to read about grieving but there is nothing like going through it. Ive dreaded this day for a while as it was always her day.
Zeeva That was beautiful.Thank you.I can imagine Daisy saying it. I always saw her as having the voice of Rue(Blanche) from Golden Girls. Daisy always liked boys and she was a flirt with guys.I can see her leading the pack over the rainbow bridge to see who jumps the highest and longest.

Crap. I KNEW I shouldn't have opened this thread at work. The letter to Daisy made my eyes tear up but Daisy's "response" just about did me in. Both were just so beautiful. RIP Daisy, you were and are obviously well loved.

Courtney I saw the picture and the sentiment is true. The ones you are given as gifts will one day be taken back. I felt that Daisy's birthday could not go by with out celebrating her life. the one thing I really get is that with an old dog those years you had before add a depth to the relationship that I didnt have with Daisy as a youg dog.
Puppies are cute and are all about the future possibilities.Each adventure builds the relationship and as your dog becomes a senior there is a depth to the relationship that has been built over the years. I think that is what I miss the most.

Loneforce I understand. I have been in tears on and off over the weekend but I wouldnt have missed daisy for the world.

dear maggi, the line between here and there is very thin. true love is the connection. she will always be with you...in your mind and in your heart, held there by the energy of true love.

and...someday when you least expect it, you will look into another pair of eyes...

they are all so incredibly special.

So sorry you are still healing in your loss of Daisy.
I had to send my sweet Clover to the bridge 4 yrs ago(on the 24th) and think of her often...she definitely left a pawprint on my heart!
