I have had trouble writing this is why it is a couple of weeks now after the service we had for my Female Golden Retriever of 10 years Megan, and her daughter of 8 years Ally. Ally lived part of the year at the Hiawassee River and loved to swim and play in the water so much. Megan was afraid to get in deeper than her feet could touch, but every morning first thing as the doors opened she headed for the River to just sit in it and watch the Geese and Mallards the last trip up. This was the first and
last time we have seen the mallards but the Geese are always there. It is so nice at night to leave the screen doors open and listen to the Geese arrive and leave during the night and to wake up to in the mornings. Ally and (Maggie, her sister) love the water and then run and play in the yard area. I called it the Happy Dance!
sigh, I am crying again, it just never stops, they will always be in my heart.
A Mother ands her Daughter!

We have the pleasure of dog-sitting Ally so we kept up with this grand-dog of ours. She stayed with us and we traveled to their home as a vacation for us.

We felt when they passed on as I have written about their illnesses before here, they would love to be at peace in the river they both so much loved. So, it was planned and we had the service for them July 16, 2008.

We had friends at the river gather and attend the service performed with Rev. Dr. James A. Johnson officiating. After his service we blessed the dogs ashes with our love by throwing White Roses and Rose Petals in the river for the Rose is a Symbol of
"Love that Never Ends"! We also tossed in wild flowers as the Indians do for their Wild Spirit and their Pure Love of Nature. We are so honored to have had them love us and grace us with their presence so generously.
We will always remember them!

Hello Sweet Cyndi,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your 2 beloved dogs. My heart goes out to you for I have lost dear pets that are part of the family. Your services look like they were very special and touching.

I noticed you have some of the same sweet blogger friends as I do, Lea & Cora! They are both such sweethearts!

Congratulations on your award!
