I have received many emails and guestbook comments over the last 5 years, asking me how I am and if I have another dog etc. So I thought it was about time for me to write an epilogue of how things are currently.
No I do not have another dog and never will, Tammy gave me enough love to last me for the rest of my life. I still miss her for every second of every day. I light a candle on her Birthday and Christmas and on the 1st April each year. A day does not go by that I do not think of her and miss her so much. I am still working on her scrapbook,and as strange as it sounds I hope to never finish it. I now also make cards which I sell online and at local craft fairs, this site is expensive to run and I am trying to raise money to keep it going.
I created this site to preserve Tammys memory and to try and help others. It is a comfort to me to know that over the years this site has helped others suffering the agony of pet loss.
Many kind people have asked after my health, in January 2006 it will be 20 years since the dr told I could reasonably expect to live for 20 years ! So I am proving them wrong. I have developed more health problems and complications over the years, but I take one day at a time.
Some of you may have read on my Golden Years page about my failed attempt to visit Gills Lap (the Enchanted Place in the Pooh stories). This is where mine and Tammys ashes will be scattered together.
This year on 31st July 2005 (the day before my birthday) I made it to Gills Lap ! My friend Bob ( I met him after he was inspired by my site to write a song called "Saying Goodbye is not Forever") pushed me up a steep slope and over bumpy tree roots etc. It was a lot of work for him and a bumpy trip for me, but we made it! I was overcome with emotion,as I never thought that I would ever see the Enchanted Place. It truly is enchanting and most beautiful even in the rain and mud! I have now seen where our ashes will be scattered and I am very happy to think that in that Enchanted Place on the top of the Forest a little girl and her dog will always be playing.
are proof of life.
thanks to everyone who has visited this site, and for all of your kind words.
