Default Hello

Hello karon,
I am new to the site but not to Shirley and her writings.
I too have just lost one of our beloved fur kids. She had a long life and we were the only home she had besides the home she was born in.
During her last days she was weak and wobbly and one time as I was letting the pack (we had 4, now 3) out into the yard her sissy saw her wobbling and walked up beside her to hold her up and walk her out the door, it was remarkable to see. The first few days after she was gone her sissy stayed out in the yard trying to track down her sent.Makes me want to cry just thinking of it.

Default Hi from Karon

Hi, Thank you for sharing. I am so sorry for your loss!!! We have had four fur kids over the past 20 years and this is the first time that we don't have any. I guess that it will take a little time to get used to. Your story is so sad and yet beautiful at the same time. It just shows how much compassion and loyality they are capable of and how much we can learn from them.
This is the first time for any cyber interaction for me...so I really am a 'newby'.
Once again I am so sorry for your loss and thank you for sharing.

Love and Peace

Default Welcome Karon and Hi, Lovesgift.

Glad you found the site, Karon. You will be right at home here. I am sorry for both your losses, Karon and lovesgift. I too lost a fur person recently. It is as hard as losing a family member--they ARE our families. My Sassy was my little girl.... I miss her so much! But we must move on.

You will both find a lot to love about this site. And Karon, you can make some really good friends online. I have and you will too.

Much love to both of you. C.
HAND, Cher O.

Welcome to Shirley's site Karon! We are so happy to have you join us.

Will be sending you some healing energy for your heart.....and the thought to remember that "nothing ever dies, it just changes form".

In the space of five years, we "lost" four beloved fur people but, they are still very much here in spirit. Three were very young together...guess I didn't think that through very well at the time. (But it was a lot of fun).

My heart goes out to you.

Blessings and Peace

Thank you for your message. It is really lovely just to know that there are people out there who understand. We are slowly but surely getting there. We don't have children, so our 'fur kids' really did fill that place. Our girl Tilly (beautiful Border Collie) passed away first. We were expecting it to happen because she was 14.5 years old. But our boy Henri (Australian Blue Heeler/Dingo)
was sudden and unexpected. I think sometimes they just wanted to be together.

Love to you

Smile Hi Karon

Hello karon, and welcome to shirley’s web family. May you enjoy this site as much as the rest of us do. Lots of things to discover and learn and wonderful people to exchange ideas with.

Am sorry to hear of your recent loss. May you, (along with lovesgift, cher-o, and wolfdog) find peace in the wonderful cherished memories of your fur babies.

Even though I don’t have any pets of my own now, I grew up with lots of them (dogs, birds, fish) and I still remember my delight in their presence. One memory that is always with me is how our dog ChaCha came to us. I can still see my brother looking up all innocent eyed at my mom, holding a rope in his hands and at the other end was ChaCha, and he saying “Honestly Ma, she just followed me home!” LOL Always thought he would grow up to be a vet, as he was always bringing home the strays, including lizards and turtles!

Anyway, welcome aboard…

Blessed Be,

Thank you so much for the welcome.
What a wonderful memory about your brother. It made me laugh a lot...thankyou for that. Did your brother become a Vet?

I hope that you don't mind, but I have another question. This is the first time I have joined a web site and I find myself stumbling around. I am not very sure how it all works. For example I am in the welcome forum at the moment, could you tell me how to get into other forums?

Love and best wishes to you
