Friends

I am starting this topi so that I can communicate with two amazing dogs who have suddenly been taken away from me by a ruthless and heartless person who shall go unnamed.

They are both rescued cocker spaniels. Dreamer is just that - a dream come true. He is a black and white cocker, about 8 years old, who is the most lovable dog alive. He knows when I am sad (as I have had many occasions to be in the past two years with its many losses) and will come from wherever he is to sit next to me an lick my face unceasingly. Kelly is black with a white blaze. He was very afraid when we got him - he fear-bit everybody he met, including me when I reflexively reached into his mouth to fish out a soda bottle top he was choking on. Gradually, by coaxing him to sit in front of me with his back to me, I earned his friendship. My heart melted whe I found out he knew how to "shake hands". That meant somebody sometime in his life had loved enough to teach him a trick. Now he will flip over on his back for a tummy rub even. The only thing he does not do is kiss (unless I put some peanut butter on my lips). Just to hurt me, a family member has taken these dogs away and will not allow me to see them. It's hard to tell whose heart is most broken - mine or theirs. But I will keep writing to them here on Lightning Strike because they are old and Kelly is starting to get PDPU and Dreamer has a very sensitive stomach and any irregularity in his feeding (or feeding him people food) will cause him to have fresh bloody diarrhea.

While these two beautiful dogs are not actively dying, both they and me are dying inside so I hope you will forgive me for including their story here.

God bless all the friends who have stood by me here on Lightning-Strike in the past.

OH I am so very sorry to hear about this heartbreaking incident. sad.gif

Is there any hope, that you can see, of getting these 2 precious souls back home with you?

Will be praying hard for their well-being as well as yours.

Please write more if / when you can.

Hugs,

Kathy
P.S. wub.gif Dreamer and Kelly love you and they know that you love them. wub.gif

Oh Gretta's Mom...I am so sorry about this. I am crying as I write this, because I know how much you love Dreamer and Kelly.

I've stood by you during all your other losses, and I will stand by you now. After all I am the "Fourth Musketeer". I don't write much, but I pray for you and the doggies every night. I pray that the Good Lord will somehow soften S**** heart and let you see and take care of Dreamer and Kelly again. I know they miss you so much. I hope he takes good care of them.

Write any time you can, I'm sure nobody will object.....May God bless you and those sweet doggies.

Love from,

LoveMyMickey

Thank you so much Kathy for your love and support. You don't know me but you could see the love I have for these two beautiful dogs and share my sorrow at having been them so ruthlessly taken from me. Thank you for affirming my believe in the fact that the love I send to them reaches them and that the love they send to me reaches me. I pray to the Good Shepherd that He relieves them of the sadness of the disappearance of yet another mother in their lives. If I come up with four months' rent so I can move to another apartment in this expensive city that allows pets, this person has said s/he will make arrangements to share them withe me. On a very fixed income, this will be months, if ever.

And Love My Mickey, my ever-faithful and loving Fourth Musketeer. You have been with me through all my losses and as you have guessed, the family member who has done this is one of the Musketeers. By this action s/he has forfeited his/her right to be a Musketeer. Our slogan is "all for one and one for all" which this certainly is NOT. He is under the spell of a terrible woman with whom he thinks he is in love. I don't know if it is possible to send a private message here on LS but even if it isn't. you know in your heart what is going on.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your understanding, love and support. Right now I feel as though I cannot make it through one more day, I know my loved ones, both animals and people, are safe in His arms and that He will protect us who remain on earth.

Thank you both for loving and caring.

Hi Dreamboat! Hi Kelly-Belly!

It sure would be a good day to go out for a morning walk. Nice and cool. Sun shining. But the kids are back at school so we have to walk around them, Don't we Kelly? You were doing so well listening to "None of your business, Kelly". And both of you seemed to learn "Soft leash" all by yourselves.. I

Please don't forget your Aunt Jeannie. I'm still here, just across town. And I'm still missing you each and every day. I think it is wiser for both you guys and me to not see each other at all rather than for me to bop in and out.

I hope the new lady is treating you well, But NOBODY, NOBODY on this earth loves you more than Auntie Jeannie. And nobody in the Perfect World loves you more than your Mommie.

May the sun shine on you today and every day.

Hi, Gretta's Mom, please permit me to add my sincerest sympathies in this newest loss in your life. Indeed we can grieve for relationships lost, particularly when they are so integral to our lives such as precious Dreamer and Kelly. As you know I truly am very sorry for what is happening, for both you and precious Dreamer and Kelly. Please know you and these precious companions are in my thoughts and prayers that you will know and feel the love flowing even though you are being prohibited the opportunity to enjoy each other's physical company.

If you would like to private message someone, just click on their name next to their message and then select "send message." The private message window will open and you can write to them privately.

I hope today is treating you kindly, and that you will have a peaceful evening blessed with your beloved Gretta's and Rufus' sweet Living Spirits to comfort you. Please know you and precious Dreamer and Kelly are in my thoughts and prayers, and please let us know how you're doing.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Thank you SO much, Moonbeam. I only have two feet and they have been knocked out from under me twice in the past year plus. Thank you for the tip about private messages here.

The new person is throwing things out of S's house by the multi-bagful - arranging things to suit herself. Sounds like a move-in to me. I pray for the safety and the lives of beautiful Dreamer and courageous Kelly. I truly hope that the Good Shepherd is conveying my messages of love to them so they can truly feel them in their dear little hearts. I am afraid now that the interloper may convince their dad to have them put down before I get to see them again. It's up to Him now, and I know He loves people AND animals.

You have been such a help to me for so many years, the stars in you crown look like a Milky Way!

God bless you Moonbeam - and Noah.

Dear Dreamer and Kelly,

Please do not think that I have abandoned you. Your dad has had all the sense sucked out of him by the person who has now moved into your house. Whenever you feel sad, or frightened, or confused, or lonely, or unloved, or rejected just think of me here across town crying tears of sadness and love for you. You know I would be with you in a second but for the new person's hold on your dad. We're three beings sharing a single soul. We can help each other be brave and live through each day until we can meet again. NEVER, EVER forget that your Auntie Jeannie loves you more than anything else in this world. Always will. And every day more and more.

XOXOXOXOXO

Thank you so much, Little Girl's Mommy, for understanding how heartbreaking this is and for the encouragement that Dreamer and Kelly both know how much I continue to love them. I think I will be able to at least see them when I go over to my BIL's house to pick up a table. I know I will leave with a broken heart, but having other people who believe along with me that they carry my love in their hearts is SO reassuring.

God speed Little Girls' Mommy and may He protect you from whatever is going on with your Little Girl.

Love,

Gretta and Rufus's mommy

Let us know how things go when you pick up the table!! However things seem while you are over there, Dreamer and Kelly know how you feel ! wub.gif

Oh, and thanks for the kind words toward me. I lost my Little Girl in '04 and that was when I found this wonderful site. (I now have my 2 precious kitties, Cubby and Sunny).

Dear Little Girl's Mommy

No matter how long it's been, we still miss them. I'm glad you now have two little fur babies to make you laugh and love.

Tuesday AM I called to remind my BIL we were coming and shortly thereafter he texted me to stay he'd been called in to work. He offered me the options of him leaving his front door unlocked (he lives in a far suburb) or rolling the table out behind his house. Wondering whether I'd made the right choice, I opted for the unlocked front door, knowing that two little furry noses would meet me at the door. I had been dissolving in tears every time I thought about them so I wondered what would happen when I actually saw them, particularly since another person, whom I hardly knew at all, would to with me. But I had prayed silently the day before. When I saw them they were delighted and so was I. I told them again how much I loved them and that I was sending packets of love to them regularly. Dreamer even remembered the sound I made lo these many years asking for a kiss - and he even dropped a brand new toy to respond.

Later on I texted my BIL to thank him for letting me see the dogs. He responded that they must have been ecstatic to see me, that they loved me very much. On some level he still cares and has not been completely brainwashed by the woman friend. Yesterday I texted him and asked him whether, if he worked Friday (his regular part=time day), I could come to see the dogs. He said he'd let me know if he was working and if he was I could come. Of course he had to put in a little jab about how he had a few more things that had belonged to my sister (who passed away a year ago last April) which a couple of weeks ago he'd demanded I come and get "my" things which turned out to be essentially everything of my sister's remaining in the house. But he did mention a recorded book that my sister had had my father (who passed away four months after my sister) record for her, so I could listen to my father's voice forever. On some level he does still have a heart so there is still some hope.

Thank you for caring, Little Girl's Mommy. This site and loving people like you are lifesavers when others of us are in the depths of sorrow.

God bless and keep you and your two kitties.

Hi, Gretta's Mom, thank you so much for sharing with us how you're doing. I'm so glad to share your news that you were able to visit with Dreamer and Kelly, and am hopeful that you will continue to be given "visiting rights". It also sounds promising that your brother in law is trying to find a way around the manipulation of his lady friend to keep the communication avenues open with you. Just "go with the flow" - - and we're all hoping for the best for you, and Dreamer and Kelly.

I hope today is treating you kindly, and that you will have a peaceful evening blessed with your beloved Gretta's and Rufus' sweet Living Spirits to comfort you. Please know you and precious Dreamer and Kelly are in my thoughts and prayers, and please let us know how you're doing.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Good morning MoonBeam and Little Girls' Mom

Today (Friday) my BIL is working all day so I have a day with my babies. It must be God's will, because the student I had coming for math tutoring shifted our time until Sunday. I'm going to take them for a walk if they still remember how to do it.

It is such a mixed blessing - delight in being able to spend time with these dear dogs, anguish at the eventual separation.

Thank you for being with me through this roller coaster.

Hi, Gretta's Mom, thank you so much for sharing with us how you're doing. I hope your visit yesterday with Dreamer and Kelly went well. You have these next few months to decide what you want to do in terms of living arrangements to accommodate another companion - - if you adopt another companion or continue to have "visiting rights" to Dreamer and Kelly so that they can have "sleep overs" with you.

I hope today is treating you kindly, and that you will have a peaceful evening blessed with your beloved Gretta's and Rufus' sweet Living Spirits to comfort you. Please know you and precious Dreamer and Kelly are in my thoughts and prayers, and please let us know how you're doing.

Peace and blessings,

Moonbeam
I took them for a walk - which they hadn't been on for over a month. They were crazy delighted and so was I. You were SO right when you told me a few months ago that the time was near to look for a pet free apartment. Then I wouldn't be in this complicated triangle with the person who is actually running the show. Thank you for reminding me that I have the next few months to find a place - I'm panicking about getting one TODAY!!

God bless you Moonbeam for all your support and love for me and Trevor's mom for all these years. Neither one of us could have made it without you and your wisdom.

Dear Dreamer and Kelly

I looks like your dad has decided to keep you until he gets too sick to take care of you. In a way, that is a good sign. He loves you and he is trying to honor the memory of your mom.

I don't know when I will see you again. It might me a long time. But never forget that your Auntie Jeannie loves you more than anything on this earth.

Here's a great big packet of love for each of you.

Hi Binky and Kelly-Belly

A very reliable lady told me that you can receive my communications even though I'm not in your presence. I hope you have been getting my love packets. I believe you are. Please remember in your hearts forever what I told you: I love you two more than anything on earth. Even if you don't see me, my love is still streaming to you.

I know we will meet again on this earth, hopefully sooner than later. And for sure we will be together in the Perfect World.

I can still see through these tears of loneliness. Someday the pieces of our broken hearts will come back together.

If I wrote everything I feel for you two darlings I would write on forever.

Never doubt your Auntie Jeannie

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

WONDERFUL NEWS!!

I'm coming over to see you little schoodles in a little while. Your dad got a package in the mail for me and he wants me to pick it up AND he's not going to be home until 4 PM!! I'm a little sick from only eating chocolate yesterday but NOTHING is going to stop me from coming and spending the day with you.

Oh thank you, Good Shepherd. Thank you, Bobbie. Thank you everybody who has been with me and encouraged my spirit through this long valley of darkness.

See you soon, you love bugs!
