moving on..

May 31, 2014

We are coming up to about a year since we found out that we were losing chuck. What a year last year was. I dont want to dwell too much on it. Ill simply say that he was the most wonderful dog I could have had. he always will be. I was so stuck in his diagnosis and eventual passing last year, I honestly didnt think that there would be a day when I could be “me” again. Where we could be “us” . But, In truth, last year taught me about myself. the good, the bad and the ugly. It did make me stronger, however. I miss the big guy, but almost a year later, I honestly feel like me again. so many wonderful things have come our way since we lost him. I do feel like some of those things were sent our way by the help of our angels. 😉 I wake up to moments like these and Im instantly reminded of how thankful I am for every second I get with the ones I love…

    Beautifully said Lori. And the picture…that is a “jump straight into your heart and fill it full of the warm fuzzies” moment!!

    Thank you for sharing these thoughts with us and, most importantly, thank you for sharing Chuck with us. We all learned a lot from Chuck. He was such a role model for dealing with whatever challenges were thrown his way…andoing it with a centered grace.

    I remember how happy you were one day when he got “excited” because he was getting in the car and he ate some dog biscuits for you. Do I have that memory right? Chuck would do anything in the world to make you happy. He .loved you so–.and knew he was so loved!

    Yes, Chuck and all your other Angels defi itely put Betsy,andyour kitty, i to your family..his family.

    Lori, this picture says it all. The love is so beautifully expressed.
    Love this picture!!!

    Love t yoj Sweet Lori, and all your glorius pack! Good job St. Chuck! We will ALWAYS remember you!

    Sally and Happy Hannah

    Beautifully said and I like what you said about a lifelong lesson learning … it makes sense. I feel like that. I am almost 2 months in and I still feel the lessons. It isn’t easy (as we’ve chatted about) but knowing there is life and light at the end of this dark tunnel helps me find some optimism. Thank you for sharing this story and sharing Chuck (and Betsy with us)…

    Sending lots of love!

    Great post Lori. Moving on is good. Yeah these anniversaries are hard but always good to focus on the positive. I always remember the ampuversary & angelverary but don’t want to remember the others. (not that I hate them just want to remember the good stuff)

    Chuck is a super Angel. Our honorary tripawd 🙂 I know he brought Betsy & Bobby to your pack.

    Love & Hugs
    Michelle & Angel Sassy
