Maya sounds like she was a great companion and shared love as much as she was loved. Very sorry for you loss.

I know there are a few of us here that have been through that heartbreaking experience, some multiple times. Just know the heartache does fade and the great memories become more special.

So very sorry for the loss of Maya.  It's so difficult losing one of our fur babies.  To the Rainbow Bridge Maya.....

I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Thanks guys... I mean that.  Honestly my wife and I are struggling a bit right now. 

Legacy

“I loved to wake to clicking nails across our hardwood floor
To hear a greeting from our angel at our bedroom door
To spend some afternoon lazy and drowsing in the sun
Or feel pouring rain wash us clean together as we run

To see blue eyes searching for a way to make me laugh
Or to realize that I do really mean it’s time to take a bath
To dig a hole, that I must fill, in mulch that I have laid
It’s the little things that I now see, and for which I’d never trade

I see you at our door knocking to come in
I feel that fur comforting me, soft against my skin
I hear you in the long, long nights talking to me with love
I dare to pray that one day I may see you up above

I see you with my father, waiting for me at the gate
Licking that cold nose and telling me I’d better not be late
I miss you now, so much, that my heart each day may break
Because you left, you see, and a part of me you did take

There’s no more pain for you now, with sweet peace you are to bind
That great pain and searing loss for us is left behind
In time we’ll see joy, for to your memory we will cling
Because you see, your legacy, is the joy that you did bring”


Here she is, and this is how I will remember her

When your buddy goes under a deck or under shrubs to lay down, when they've never done that before......they know 'it's time'. 

She was a beauty in more ways than one. 

Chin up, sir.

Yep. My buddy Drake went under the trampoline. Wouldn’t budge. I layer there with him all night. Only the beckoning from my youngest son the next morning helped me get him to the car.

It’s weird how they ‘know’

You consistently make so much sense, and express yourself so eloquently, that I've decided you're basically a female version of robwebster.

Yes she was... and still is I'm sure!  It's getting easier for us; we are starting to fondly relive the memories instead of constantly dwelling on the heavy loss. 

We've also decided that perhaps the best way to honor her life is to save another life... so we are working toward an adoption of a husky in Fredericksburg VA.  If we do it, I'll let you guys know and post some pics.

I'm also working on a piece of art for her... I'll post a pic when I'm finished.  Funny how loss brings out creativity...
