Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Our Lucy the bassett hound

Just let let you know, Our Lucy the bassett hound died tonight. I am beyond sad as some of you can imagine. I will not post details but this was really not expected. In case you did not noticed, I loved my Lucy. I am soooo sad that I didnt get to say goodbye. Im glad some of you got to meet my very favorite puppy!
I can not believe I just typed those words. TO my family, do not worry about me. Im working the next 3 nights, so I will call you in a few days.
This is hard. Oh I loved my Lucy.
no more warm blankies from the dryer before you go to sleep
no more sliced cheese to manipulate you into the kennel
no more "puppy power" in the back yard
no more doggy day care
no more "Good Morning Hugs"
no more laying on the couch waiting for you to join me
no more playing with Pickle (Pixel) the cat
I am so sorry my sweet Lucy!!!!!

Michaelm shared his feelings over at www.valtool.blogspot.com. He is hurting as well and would appreciate your comments.

Amy, I'm so sorry for your and Michael's loss. It's so hard, I know... I've lost a dog and a cat, too, and so many times people don't understand how you could grieve so, but these precious creatures were our friends...how could we not? I hope you'll soon be remembering Lucy with smiles and laughter.

Though it may not help right now, here's something that has helped me...

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
