Hi Cat I know what you mean about missing your baby. I have owned a German Shepherd, they are such loyal friends and so beautiful. I still feel my Callie around sometimes. She was there for me June 6, three years ago when my son became an angel. When my sister brought my sons ashes home, my Callie walked up to the box and looked back at me. I told her it was her Daddy and she seem to understand. Now her ashes are in a pretty little box in my bedroom. She uses Honey's body to visit me sometimes. The way I know it's her is that Honey will do something that is so not denying it's Callie. My caregiver swears Callie is haunting Honey. It's a look or she scratches her back on the same spot on the chair. She goes down the and gets in my bed and if I don't come right away, she will come look at me, like "Mom it's time for bed" If Indy comes to visit you'll know. You might feel a and warm, loving pressance and turn around, Just know it's Indy.
,Hi Cat I said goodbye to my beloved Callie, a Cattle dog, last October. I never thought I could feel that kind of love for another dog again, and so soon, but I listened to my Callie. She knew better than me and she sent me a new friend. A Cattledog named Honey. I am not trying to replace Callie,but Honey needed me. Callie made me a better person and she helped me thru so much and I can give that to another special friend. Honey and I have had our rough patches with trust, but there has not been a day that she hasn't made me laugh. Right now she is sitting next to me giving me doggy kisses, and telling me thank you for taking her in.and I didn't think I could ever feel so much love again but I can. Oh, by the way, you never own a Cattledog, they own you. LOL So maybe your special friend Indy will send you another to help you thru your grief and teach you to love again
What day did Indie pass? Macki left us on the 12th physically but like you, she will live in our 's forever. We got her ashes back Saturday Morning so got her buried in her favorite spot in the yard and will be planting Columbines soon. This spot was where I tried to grow Columbines previously but Macki kept digging them up so I finally just gave her that spot. It was on the North side of the house so cool there and also gave her a good view of the drive so she could be there during our goings and comings. I love the way Dogs always act like they are so happy to see you no matter if they saw you earlier that day. They teach us the meaning of unconditional love.
I'm just wandering how you are holding up---I'm sure Indie is watching over you --perhaps looking for a friend for you, one day---It's hard to lose a faithful friend----so--I'm sending more hugs your way-Lynda
