Hi Folks--

In my "spare" time this summer, which is all I've HAD--months and months of spare time, ARG!!--I've been writing articles for a very cool website. I just had one published about pet loss, and I wanted to share the link with you so that you could read it if you wanted to:

http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/news-grieving-loss-pet

Lots of what's in this article I learned right here, and I also linked to this site in the article, which will get wide readership--so thank you, everyone! And I hope everyone has a good day!

Hugs from Margi, Spiritwolf, and Leopold the Bossman

Hey Margi,


Good article. I liked all the pics of the various animals and people with their pets. Maybe post your article here on this site so when people open it up the article will be right here. Good luck with your teaching and things.

I don't know how to do that, Dennis, nor if it would be okay with the moderators. But thanks!

Hi, Margi, just had a chance to read your article. It is WONDERFUL!!! I agree with Dennis - - you might want to e-mail the moderator and ask him if he could pin it so that it would always be available for viewing. Don't know if there are "rights" you would need to add from the website where it's written on, but again, the L S moderator would be able to help you through that process.

I hope that life is treating you and your rascal Leopold kindly today. Please know you and Sir Leopold are frequently in my thoughts and prayers every day, and hope that you will feel the presence of your precious Spiritwolf with you at all times and in all circumstances.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Thank you, Moon Beam. A lot of thought and heart went into writing that article.

Yes, I'll find out about getting it pinned. I think that I own the rights to it and can freely copy it, but I'll make sure with the other site.

Thank you as always for your lovely thoughts. I'm doing a bit better today, for no particular reason, except maybe that I've increased the amount of antidepressant I am on ever so slightly. (I'm still in normal range, and I control these things myself--who knows better than me?)

Hi Margi:

I read your article on FB, loved it. You are a terrific writer. Read that other stuff you wrote a while back too. The information on guilt hit home and glad you addressed that as we get hit so hard with that. Thank you for writing this my friend. Hope to catch you in chat for our awesome chats.

Hugs,

Diane

[Hello Bue's mother. I'll go to the article in a minute but I wanted to tell you what a BEAUTIFUL dog Bue is. Her face beams kindness and love. She's an old soul. She understands everything. No matter how sad you/we are right now, we were totally blessed by having this kind of dog come into our lives. And we WILL meet again in the next world.
