MY PUPS

My pups are 2 long-haired dachshund.  They are the cutest and most loving fur babies and I love them so very much.  The oldest is Scarlett, whom I call Scarly!  She is a black and tan long-haired dachshund.  Scarly is 10 1/2 years old.  The youngest is Toby.  He is a brown long-haired dachshund.  He is 9 years old.  Toby has always been overweight since he was a pup.  Nobody wanted him when he was a puppy because he was overweight.  I did adopt him from my girlfriend’s daughter and at that time he weighed 18.9 lbs.  I adopted him 1 1/2 years ago.  He is now at 16lbs.  Scarly is 13.3lbs.  Scarly was also adopted from my girlfriend.  Check out my blog titled “My special angel dog Luna”  I talk about Scarly and Toby when I lived at my girlfriend’s home

I rented a room from my girlfriend where I lived with Scarly and Toby.  Due to financial problems we all had to go our separate ways.  I originally adopted Scarly when I moved out into my own apartment.  Scarly developed “separation anxiety” when I would leave my apartment.  I will go into her separation anxiety in another blog.  But when your dog has this condition, it is horrible for you and your dog!  They literally go into a panic attack.  It can be mild to severe.

About a year and half after me and Scarly moved I was able to adopt Toby.  Toby and Scarly grew up with each other since they were pups so they were very happy to be back together again.  Scarly now has someone to keep her company while I am at work.

They each have their own personality.  Toby is like a lovable teddy bear.  He loves to give you kisses.  He just loves to love.  He is my baby boy.

Scarly is my little protector.  She is definitely a guard dog.  She will let you know that she is protecting me so do not come near.  She is a sweet little girl who loves me a lot.  I love her.  She had teeth issue as most doxies do.  At the time we were unaware that there was a problem with her teeth.  She initially had to have 7 teeth pulled.  After that, I made sure her teeth were checked yearly.  She has had a total of  10 teeth removed to date.  I have decided that since both Scarly and Toby are up in years that I don’t want to take the change of putting them under anesthesia to get their teeth cleaned.

These are my kids and I love them very much!  I pray every day that God with let them live with me for a very long time.

 

 

 

 

 

MORE VISITS FROM MY LUNA ANGEL

There were additional times my Luna girl visited me.  Since  her visit from my blog MY SPECIAL ANGEL DOG LUNA I have moved out of my girlfriends home.  I live in a studio apartment with Scarly and Toby!  Scarly and Toby were my girlfriends and girlfriend daughters dog (that story will be for another blog). 

I have several different canvas prints on my living room wall.  This is a wall near the ceiling dividing the living room and the kitchen.

On this wall I put canvas art of some of my fur babies.  I have a picture of IvyBella (my girlfriend’s golden retriever baby) and another one of Luna and Harry!  (Harry is Luna’s brother) and another picture of Chooch .

As you can see the place where I put my pictures are very high and you need a ladder to get to them.  I have had them up since I moved in to my apartment.  I am going on my third year.  Recently when I woke up the picture of Luna and Harry got moved to a very distinct angle which I did not move.  There is no one in my apartment that could move it either.  My very own assumption is that my Luna girl came by to say Hello and wanted me to know she was there.

A few mornings later I woke up to find that Chooch’s picture had been moved to an angle also.

I have no answer as to why these pictures got moved except that my Luna girl and Chooch came to visit me and they wanted to let me know that they came to see me.

They all have a piece of my heart and always will.

MY SPECIAL ANGEL DOG LUNA

My third experience from my dog spirits is from my Luna girl.  She is the reason I started my store Luna’s Love of Life Gifts!

Without warning cancer attacked our baby girl and took her away from us 4 months later!  She was only 6 years old.

My best friend and I shared an apartment together in 2005 -2008. That is when our Luna girl came into our lives. I became Aunt Linda and Cathy (my best friend) became mommy. Then there was Cathy’s son, Mitch. Now, Mitch is Luna’s “BOY”. I couldn’t even begin to covey into words the love relationship Luna and Mitch had for each other. Cathy’s son Mike loves Luna too but tried to keep a distance because he was allergic to dogs. And Lou is Luna’s daddy.

We shared an apartment for several years until I moved in with my other friend in Huntley.  It was so hard to leave my Luna girl.  Every time I came back to visit with her I would bring her a “baby” (stuffed animal).  So she would always look for her “baby” when I came over.  She loved me so much that when I came over she would put her head into my body and cry.  Lot of the stuffed animals I brought to her were children’s favorite cartoon characters.  One of those “babies” was the red “Clifford” dog You will see the importance of this later on in the blog.

In May 2010, Cathy and Lou brought Harry home so Luna could have a playmate. He is a British Golden Retriever. He loves and misses his Luna girl so very much.

Our Luna girl was diagnosed with lymphoma at the end of April 2011. She was only 6 years old (In humans that would be a 40 yr old woman).

She went into remission for 7 weeks. The cancer came back attacking her skin. She had these ulcers popping up especially on her paws that it became very hard for her to walk. 

Our vet put her on “rescue” protocol which is just a name for using a different combination of chemotherapy drugs when and if your dog stops responding to the first protocol used. Since cancer cells tend to adapt and become resistant to certain drugs after a while, a new combination of drugs can often help your dog get back into remission.

Luna only had a 20% chance that the drugs would work,  much less put her back in remission. But with all our friends and family praying for her and her wonderful vet, Luna went back into remission in July. We were all so very happy.  Everyone who loves Luna including her vet said how Luna doesn’t act like a dog that has cancer.  Each week she had her chemo treatment, she was doing such an awesome job fighting this dreadful disease.

On August 19 of 2011, she had her chemo treatment and as usual she was doing great. On Sunday morning, August 21, 2011 she couldn’t keep any food down. So she was brought to the vet that morning, was given a blood test to check if the cancer had come back. She showed no signs of the cancer coming back so Luna went back home. Mommy fed her mixture of chicken/rice to see if that would help with her vomiting.   Later that day our precious Luna became lethargic and went back to the vet. On the way there she died in her mommy’s arms. Her vet said the cancer was so microscopic and was attacking her intestinal tract.

Needless to say, I was devastated to hear that cancer has taken my little girl’s life.  I was doubled up in pain from the loss of my precious girl.  It was such a shock because she was only 6 years old and it came so suddenly.  Within 4 months cancer took my baby girl.

I want to explain my living situation at this time so you can understand when I tell you about my experience with Luna’s spiritual visit with me.  I was living with my friend in Huntley (same friend who lost Annabelle).  She had 2 daughters, one whose bedroom was next to mine and her oldest daughter lived in the basement with her 3-year-old daughter.  Her oldest daughter also had a cat that lived both up and downstairs.  There was a door to the basement so she did have some privacy.  The 3-year-old had lots of toys to play with including a “Red Clifford Dog”.  There would be many times the 3-year-old would come upstairs to visit with us even if her mommy stayed downstairs.

After the loss of Annabelle, my girlfriend had decided to get another dog.  She got a long-haired dachshund named Scarlett.  The following year, my girlfriends daughter decided she wanted another dog too.  She got a long-haired dachshund named Toby.

There were 3 dogs in the house now.  Their names are Dukie, Toby and Scarly.  Everyone in the house did their “own thing”.  I was more of a “home buddy” so I stayed home more than everyone else.  Somehow all 3 dogs became attached to me and they would all sleep in my bed.

I always felt Luna’s presence with me.  I have this one picture of Luna where she is laying down but her head is turned looking at me.  This picture is  hanging on the wall . I can see her eyes looking straight at me.  I can be right in front of the picture, to the right of the picture or to the left of the picture and her eyes are staring at me.

Few years after Luna has passed I had a more vivid visit from my little girl.  One morning I woke up before it was time to get up but the dogs needed to go outside.  I got up let them out the back door and brought them back in and went back to bed.  A few hours later it was time to get up.  Everyone else was still sleeping so I let the pups out again.  But this time there was a “Red Clifford Dog” sitting at the back door. (The red Clifford dog is one of the “babies” I had given Luna).  At first I thought that maybe Melodi (my friend’s granddaughter) had gotten up and left her Clifford dog at the back door or even Guiness, their cat somehow brought it from downstairs.

When everyone else woke up, I asked her daughter if Melodi was up and left Clifford at the back door.  She told me that Melodi is sound asleep and has not been up at all.  I then asked if she thought it was possible that Guiness was playing with Clifford and left it at the back door.  She told me that it was too heavy for him to drag all the way up the stairs.

Somehow the “Red Clifford Dog” made its way up from downstairs with no one in the house bringing it there.  I firmly believe that my Luna girl was telling me in her own way that she is with me and watching over me.

I don’t have a picture of Luna and Clifford but I do have a picture of Luna and Eeyore.me and luna

I am curious if any one esle has similiar experiences after their beloved fur baby has died.

 

PET GIFTS

One of my passions are animals especially dogs.  I love them and they love me.  I also love the wild animals.  I just think they are so beautiful and majestic.  That is why in my store I have a lots of merchandise with animals on them.  Any animal lover can complete their whole home decor in animal decor.

DOG ANGEL – ANNABELLE

My second experience with a dog’s spirit.  Annabelle was a miniature pinscher.  Before I moved into my girlfriends home, I would visit her house to play with her puppy dog.  His name was Duke!  He was a mix of min pin and rat terrier.  He was very high-strung,  He had lots and lots of energy!

My girlfriends adult daughter still lived at home and lived in the basement of her house.  Duke was her dog and when he reached 2 years old she decided he needed a playmate!  dukielaundry 002

So her search started for Duke’s playmate.  She decided to adopt!  She found Annabelle at a min pin shelter.  She was so cute and so much smaller that Duke.  Everything was going very well with the adoption.  Duke and Annabelle got along very well.

There were many times when my girlfriend’s daughter invited her boyfriend to stay over.  This one day a tragedy happened.  Her daughter had gone off to work.  My girlfriend was in the shower getting ready for dentist appointment.  The dogs were out playing in the backyard, her boyfriend decided to leave the house.  He accidentally left the garage side door open and as he open the big garage door both dogs ran out!  Instead of running after them to try to get them back, he ran in the house to tell my girlfriend that the dogs got out.  She went running out the house to look for them.  She lived off a busy street and unfortunately the dogs ran into the busy street.  Annabelle was just following Duke but Duke made it across the street, but Annabelle did not!  She got hit by a car! My girlfriend ran out to her and Annabelle in her arms and a kind neighbor took them to the vets office.  Annabelle did not come back home.  My girlfriend was devastated.

I went over there to try to console her.  No words could comfort her.

Few weeks later, I went over to visit with my friend.  She had a few friends over and both of her daughters were there.  She had asked me to get something for her out of her bedroom.  I opened her bedroom door and duke ran in and went under the bed.  I couldn’t get him out and kept calling for him!  Duke, Duke, come her boy!  I went out to living room and told my friend that I can’t get Duke out from under the bed.  She looked at me so strangely,  she said Duke is sitting here next to me.  What are you talking about?

There were no other dogs in the house.  After talking with each other, we all agreed it must have been Annabelle that I saw zoom past me and under the bed.  We all looked and did not see any dog under the bed.

Dear sweet Annabelle was telling us she was okay and not to worry.

Shortly I will be telling you how my Luna girl came back to tell me she was with me too!

Keep your mind and heart open and you too will see or hear your beloved fur baby whom has left you.

DOG CANCER

Have you ever lost your dog to cancer?  I have lost 2 dogs to cancer and both of them were golden retrievers.  I was “Aunt Linda” to both of these dogs and my best friend/sister was their mommy!  Chooch was 14 years old when he was diagnosed with brain cancer and Luna was only 6 years old when she was diagnosed with lymphoma.  The sad fact is that 60% of golden retrievers will get cancer in their lifetime.

Luna’s cancer came to us as a complete shock to us.  She was diagnosed in April 2011 and in August 2011 she lost her battle to cancer.  She is the reason I started my store at Zazzle.  We have a special section where all the net profits will be donated to Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study.

There are so many dogs that get cancer!  Just like us humans, there are survivors and there are those that have lost the battle.  It’s so important that we do canine cancer research.  Many of the dog cancers are the same cancers that we get.  Since our dogs have a shorter life span, the cancer research results are quicker to find out if they will work or not.  We can then help our dogs and ourselves as well.

If you have the opportunity, please donate to canine cancer research.  There are also may other things you can do to help with canine cancer research.  There are many groups that do dog cancer walks.

DOG ANGELS

Yesterday I wrote about “My Dog’s Spirit and how I believed that their spirit lives on.  My belief God has special assignments for each of them which makes them our dog angels.  There have been several times that I have experienced visits from my babies.  My fur babies are not only the dogs where I am their “mommy” but also my babies where I am known as “Aunt Linda’!

My first encounter was with my best friend”s dog Chooch!  I had known Chooch since he was a puppy.  Chooch was a golden retriever.  choochbaby

In this picture he is wearing my winter scarf.  He was such a good puppy!  I am a former smoker, but back then I did smoke.  My girlfriend has asthma so I would always go outside to have a cigarette.  Since I was going outside to smoke I always took Chooch out for his walk.  As Chooch grew our love for each other also grew.  There was one time that I came over to my girlfriends home during the winter time.  I was wearing my hat and my scarf (yes the one that matches the scarf Chooch  has around his neck in the picture.)  As they opened the door Chooch was so excited that he jumped up on me and pinned me up against the hallway wall and was jumping up to get my hat.  We were all laughing so hard and he did eventually pull the hat off my head.

Chooch lived until he was 14 years old.  He was diagnosed with brain cancer.  My girlfriend did not want him to suffer so she made the horrible decision all of us regret when that time comes.  She called me and told me that they were at the vet’s office and that it was time to say good-bye to him.

They were waitng for me to get there so we could all say good-bye together.  Chooch could barely move but as I entered the room he tried to get up when he saw me.  We all said our final good-byes which broke our hearts.  He laid on his mommy’s lap while the vet gave him “the shot”.

So we sadly lost our beloved Chooch.  Several days after we lost Chooch, I would stay with my girlfriend and her boys.  When Chooch was alive he would often wear his chain collar in the house.  On one of those days, my girlfriend was doing laundry and we were both coming down the stairs from the bedrooms with the laundry baskets.  All of a sudden we both heard Chooch’s chain jingle as both of us at the same time turned around to look at him.  We looked at each other.  Did you hear that? Yes!  We both heard the very same thing.   chooch13

I suppose you could say that both of us loved Chooch very much.  His loss put both of us in deep sadness and that we both simultaneously heard the same thing and the same time was just our longing for him to be with us again.

We know what we heard but was it our imagination?  I don’t think soThis did not just happen once.  It happened several times to both of us.  It wasn’t always at the same time but a lot of the times it was.  Even though we could not physically see Chooch, we both knew he was there.

I think all our pets do come back to us when they are needed.  I also believe they come to visit us.  As I said in my previous blog, God gives them special assignments probably helping other people or even other dogs.  My belief is they never leave us alone.  They are always checking up on us.

Any pet lover would love their pets just like me and my friend.  As long as you are open to this idea that your dog does have a spirit, I believe you will hear or see something telling you they are still all around you.

One day I know we will all see our fur babies again.  I think there is a special area in heaven for all the pet lovers.  When God calls us home to Him, we will be re-united with all our fur babies.  Both us and our fur babies will be doing special assignments for God together.

This was my first experience with my dog angels.  I will write about my second experience on one of my future blogs.
