Every Tree Needs An Angel...

With the holidays behind us and a new year ahead, we are filled with resolution and hope as we look to the future. I would like to pause for a moment, however, to remember Ty, a special, once in a lifetime dog who was taken from our lives far too soon. This is for you little guy...

Dear Ty,
I love you to the moon and back. I put a picture of you on my tree because every tree needs an angel. You are the meaning of love and when I look at your smile, I am reminded that life is a gift worth living to the fullest, with an open heart and without constraint. My resolution this year is to embrace each day with a song in my heart and a skip in my step. I will accept and love my imperfectly perfect self because it brings joy and laughter to others. This is how I will honor your legacy. Thank you beautiful boy, "TY". 

I am smiling back at you...

  1. Goodness, I bawled when I read your sister's posts to Ty. What a special dog. I know my mom can relate and empathize with your sister's emotions in losing her sweet, precious boy. It was much the same when we lost Nikki. Some dogs are just one of a kind, never to be replaced and NEVER forgotten. Love and hugs to you and your family, Jamie!

    1. Thanks sweetie...
      I'm so glad you took the time to read Ty's story. It takes an "animal" person to truly appreciate the heartfelt emotion contained in her words. She has a nice blog too. If you aren't already a follower, you might want to be. Loving you always.

  2. This is so sweet, J. As you know, we miss him horribly, and as much today as the day we lost him. It just never seems to get better, but your love of him is something we share, and it somehow makes the loss a little more tolerable. Thank you for loving him as you did. He loved you so very much.
