Giving Thanks

I am thankful for my family, friends, health, and my dogs and cats aka "The Beasts". 

I am missing Princess who passed away a year ago this month, but thankful for Lady Bug - a quirky little Spaniel who is dumb as a box of rocks.  LOL 

I miss my Darien terribly.  I still do, always will.  He used to open up his gifts, and thoroughly enjoy them.  But I think to myself, one day, there will that Greyhound who needs me as much as Darien did.  He was a gorgeous beast of a hound - jet black with a white patch on his chest.  I don't have a lot of pictures of him that are fabulous as he was so dark.  And he didn't care for the camera so much.  (And I only had a digital camera in 2004 - a year before he died.)

That said, I miss Elvis.  I miss the Elvis in this picture - the puppy who adored his poppa hound.  And me.  I know I did right by Elvis, but it still hurts.  I know him and Darien are together.

Darien reminds me of my Teresa. I don't have many pictures of her either. We are so spoiled now with digital cameras. She passed away 4 years ago this November... time just flies by doesn't it?

It sure does...I can't believe Darien will be gone 6 years in 2011...he passed when he was 8.5 years old in 2005. He would have been a grand old man.

Princess I miss terribly but she had a long full life. Darien I still am angry that I felt "robbed" and he died before he was old.
