I have had the pleasure of owning one red boy and I love him so much. I try to think about the day that we will have to say good bye and it saddens me but I will always do what is best for him. I could never stand to see him suffer. I am grateful the years and joys we have had together equalling 5 years. He is a smart and beautiful creature. Too human if you ask me.

I stood by your bed last night I could see that you were crying

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear

It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well,I'm fine, I'm here.


I was close to you at breakfast,

I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times your hand reached down to me,

I gently put my paw on you and smiled and said I'm here.


It's possible for me, to be so near you everday

To say to you with certainty "I never went away"

You sat there very quietly then smiled, I think you knew

In the stillness of the day, I was very close to you.


And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide

I'll rush across the rainbow bridge to greet you and we'll stand side by side,

I have so many things for you to see, be patient live your journey out...

Then come home to me.

Ember came into our lives as an adorable and shy eight week old baby girl, Irish Setter. My children were three and five year old boys and they thought they were raising her, but in truth she ended up raising them. Being their playmate and best friend for 14 years. She celebrated their joys and soaked up many a tear with her soft red coat. She saw my husband off to war and my oldest son off to college and cried loudly at their returns! She was an amazing dog and family member!!! At the end we were all there with her...her human boys 17 and 20 years old by then. We all cried uncontrollably during our goodbye, but we knew it was not right to keep her with us any longer...as much as we wanted to. She taught us all so much about loving, forgiving and life! Ember is sealed in our hearts forever as our first girl..our first redheaded love!

On April 5th I lost my great boy of 14 an a half Radley brought so much love into my heart I can't even tell you how much. He was a rescue boy from SOS and Allissa gave us excactly what we asked for. He was perfect for us. My heart is still  hurting and There will always be a whole in my heart. I loved you so much Radley.Someday I will be with you again and we will run the hills together again.

Love to you Radley Terrie

Lucy has been gone only 6 months. She's still here. I can feel her presence. I miss her so much. I walk home from work almost excited that she'll be there-knowing differently. A weird feeling. How she made me laugh. Still can't open the fridge without expecting an irish jig. I love you so much and miss you every day. You'll probably be having great fun, up there in the sky. Until we meet againxxx
