Furry Friends Friday - Lost Loves

I don't know whether I should have done this post. My heart has a lump in it as I go back and think of these animals that we've lost. I've had a lot of pets and I've loved them all so much.

This is me with Muffin (Muffie). Leonard and I as well as Muff climbed to the top of Black Mountain in the Bighorns on the 4th of July, 1994. (9,500 ft.) We all struggled for oxygen, even her. I was a chicken. You had to jump some rocks to get on up to the lookout tower and my nerves failed me. Leonard made it.
This, also, is in the mountains. Muff was a darling little dog. We managed to keep her till she was about 12.

You've seen my last kitty, Maxie. Here she is with Teddy. At that time she was almost 22 and Teddy was about two years old. Such dears.

This is Teddy when he wasn't fully grown. He was a purebred Pomeranian. Leonard had to talk me into getting a Pomeranian. All I could think of was a fat lady carrying around a little yappy dog. Then we got him and I was hooked. Yep! My mental image was right. He was a great little dog. Diane

It's fun to talk about all of our wonderful pets, Diane... I grew up with a cat named Snowball. When I went to college, I missed her so bad. AND she died that year--which made going home even harder. I missed her.

Then I had a Cocker Spaniel for about 15 yrs. named Duchess. She was the light of our lives.

Thanks for the memories.

I know the feeling Diane, it's so hard to look back at our past pets, and not get emotional. I still have an emotional breakdown over the ones I've lost in the past couple years. It's said time heals all wounds. I wish time would hurry up. Bless your beautiful babies, and you.

Animals have a way of getting into ones heart.I too have some fond memories of pets who have long since passed on.

It's so difficult to think about those loyal and loving pets that were such important parts of our family life over the years. The unconditional love that they gave - the smiles and the comfort. What a lovely post, Diane.
