My Doxie,

Another beautiful poem and wonderful pictures. It is SO good to read in your poems that strength and hope and faith have returned to your life. The picture of Misty and Free is precious. Two identical doxies, lying side by side, one with his head on the other's back. And the message to Jen asking her to look at you now ..... and then the picture of the old man holding a doxie. That picture just SINGS hope!

Thank you for finding such gorgeous pictures of labs - black and chocolate. Thank you for sticking with me through this season of losses. Something happened last week that gave me a signal to get up out of the slough of despond and get moving, get living my life. A precious man, Mr Willie "Popsy" Dixon died unexpectedly. JeHe was the drummer for the Holmes Brothers (Geez do I wish I knew how to insert pictures from Google image - just go there and search for "Popsy Dixon".) The Holmes Brothers have been together since the late nineties and a couple of years ago they won a National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Award for being a national treasure of the history of American music. That was sad enough.


They were/are scheduled to do a concert in Baltimore next Friday and of course I have tickets. Sherman and Wendell Holmes have decided to go ahead with the concert with a substitute drummer. I thought if they have the strength to do this, I need to have the strength to stop whining and hiding and get up and start my new life.

Whenever they played in Minneapolis, my BFF (a Black athlete of times gone by) and I would crash the Green Room and have a good time talking to them about NYC, gospel and just stuff. I'm going to try to do this next Friday and I am going to do it confidently so the arties who are running the concert don't get in my way. I want to give each one of them a big hug and tell them how amazingly strong they are and how much they have meant in my life.

And you, too. What a difference you have made in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Gretta and Rufus's mom (and Misty and Free's aunt)

Oh My Doxie and Me

This is the most beautiful poem and picture I have ever seen. As you know, both of my beloved labs, Gretta and Rufus, and in the Perfect World. And you know that last year I lost my father and my best=loved sister Bobbie. Ten days ago a very good friend of mine, the world's best musician, Wendell Holmes, went on to the Perfect World too. Right now I am trying my best to give Bobbie's two beautiful cocker spaniels, Dreamer (a piebald black and white who is the most loving, gentle and cuddly dog alive = I cannot tell you how many of my tears he has picked away) and Kelly (black with a white blaze - who came with a terrible case of fear-biting - and who has completely changed over the past 18 months into a jokester, the ruler of the house). Both of them are rescues of course. The best we can tell, Dreamer is about 5 years old and Kelly is somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-11. Bobbie's husband Stan and I are doing our very best tp give them perfect doggie lives. But no matter how much we try of do, we will NEVER be able to even come CLOSE to all the love they have shown us. I don't know how we would have made it through Bobbie's passing without them.

Good morning, Todd (My Doxie and Me)\\

Thank you for coming into and staying in my life.

Thank you for loving Bobbie so much.

Thank you for your loving heart that opened first to Jenna and then to all dogs, especially dachshunds.

Thank you for the beautiful poems and pictures that you have sent me over the years.

Thank you for now opening your heart in a way that only a few very special people can do - fostering dogs. Loving them completely and then having to give them up to a new, loving home.

You are an amazing person, Mr Todd.

I thank GOD and DOG for you.

Good morning, Todd

It/s been a week! Last Tuesday morning and young man, overcome by the burden he was carrying in his heart and soul, climbed up to the roof of the rowhouse he lived in, just across the street and down a couple of houses from me, and jumped to his death on the sidewalk below. It was shocking and sad that such a young person was carrying around such a burden that he took his own life in order to escape. That's part of the big city - people don't know who lives around them, even those in the same building. Even me. I know the man who lives on the second floor but I have lived here for over a year and I have never ever seen the woman who lives on the first floor. I taped a bouquet of flowers to a street sign to honor his life and talked to his roommate, who had tried to stop him but couldn't. Imagine that young man having to carry the image around with him for the rest of his life.

Then Friday morning, when I was driving to Stan's house to take care of the dogs, I was involved in a 3-car crash on the busiest freeway in town. I was the car in the middle (of course). The cars ahead of me were slowing down fast to avoid a large piece of metal debris in the road. The car in front of me had come to a complete stop and I had as well, about a half car length behind it. Then a car came from behind me who couldn't stop and hit me going about 25-30 miles an hour! That pushed my car forward about a car length, into the car ahead of me, which pushed it forward about 8-9 car lengths.

MIRACULOUSLY, when we all got out of our cars, there wasn't a mark on any of them! Not even a scratch on anyone's bumper! I was sure the back end of my car (like the last one) was crushed from the back, but there was nothing!! I don't know how this could have happened (well, yes I do) but I just thank the Lord for keeping me and my car whole.

So today I am going to my Black baptist church for some old fashioned singing and preaching and then to Stan's house to take care of the dogs today and tomorrow. You KNOW that it's really the dogs who are going to take care of me and my heart.

How are you doing with your doxie fostering? You are a much stronger and braver a person than I am. I know I could never take care of a dog without loving him or her and then have to give him or her up to someone else. I'd be in the legion of foster "failures". Mt hat is WAY off to you and your caring, loving heart. You are a blessing on the lives of so many doxies - and people. Thank you for being my friend.

Jeanne

Oh, My friend, Todd

Sometimes I am flown away by your poetry and the pictures you find to illustrate my heart.

This time there is a tiny bit of confusion - I know you are talking about the young man here who took his own life. But there seems to my linear mind a tiny thread of saying that you have recently lost a friend, too, perhaps a doxie. How I hope this is not true, you who have opened your heart so much that you now volunteer to have it broken over and over by fostering - exchanging hearts with a beautiful doxie and then having to send him or her to a "permanent" home.
I hope today your heart is intact as we sing for the friend I knew only as "The Jumper" but who had a complete life- a life that had become so lonely and painful and angry that, being only twenty some years on earth and at a time when he had not yet had the years of life that give you your real education.

One good thing is that I see someone had put another bouquet of flowers atop mine. Maybe we'll start a fad here - a good one that says that every life must be respected and honored (except those tho prove themselves depraved without measure - and then we transfer that respect and honor to their parents and the good person even the evilest of us were, even if just for a day.

The stars and the sky and the sun and the moon help me thank you for a treasured friend in my life and in the life of beautiful Bobbie.

Jeanne (aka Gretta and Rufus's mom)

P.S. Still look for a picture of Rufus.
