Dear Brenrae, 

Thank you so much for stopping by for Buddy's 5th anniversary celebration. I know you are right, he and Harry are sharing special moments together, planning for the times to come when we come to rejoin them, and also playing with their many friends. I try to imagine how beautiful it must be there...such a happy place with many fields, sunny spots, lakes and streams and of course, lots of delicious foods! 

I hope you are doing well...you mentioned another kitty in your life, Smokey. I know he must have been sent by Har Har to bless you, just the same as Buddy sent me Evie and then Shi. As you said, our babies would always want us to share our love, especially with needy other ones who don't have a family or much hope of one.

Shi is doing OK...she had a little cut just on her lower eyelid (right eye) last week...I am putting salve on it every day from the vet, so she is healing from it, very slowly but it's coming along. She was playing too roughly with her pals across the street...but dogs will be dogs as they say, and so, I have to keep a close eye on her when they get a little too wild.

Thank you for being there for me through these difficult years - I am so blessed to have my friends here. I hope Gabby is doing better.

(((Hugs)))

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Bud Bud, 

It's mommy wishing you a very happy 61st month anniversary at RB, baby! Mom hopes you're having a wonderful day today...(well, every day is great for you kids because you babies are always celebrating anniversaries every day!). 

Mommy is with Grandma quite a bit now...she is going to retire next month from the library and she is ready to go part-time and not have as much responsibility. Joelee is doing really well...very much in love and has two beautiful kitties...a mother and son. The mommy kitty came to their place, crying for help...she had just given birth to new litter and only this boy survived. It was like she knew just where to go for help and a new home...maybe you had a hand in that, my sweet boy? Mom wouldn't be surprised one bit, as you sweet angels are always watching out for us and sending along miracles and blessings! 

Shi is doing pretty well...she is back in your old cone right now (you know, the one Joelee put stickers all over and we all wrote on it how much we love you?)...because she has a little cut on her eyelid, but it is slowly getting better. She is such a patient girl...

If you get a chance, please come in a nice dream visit sometime, OK baby? That would be so nice, to feel you close by in a dream...

Love you forever my Sweetness Boy...sending you lots and lots of hugs, kisses and tummy rubs...

mommy...xoxoxoxoxoxoxo!!!!

Dear Sweetest Bud Bud, 

Happy 62nd month anniversary today, baby! Mom hopes you are having a wonderful day, playing with all of your precious pals. Five years ago today, mom posted a video of you playing in the field out back with Joelee...we were playing frisbees and you were so happy, baby...you looked so good in your blue scarf! Mom had put the video on Facebook five years ago, and it came up as a memory today. It was just so good to see you baby...just being your happy joyful self, and making everyone else happy too...

Gram has retired from being full-time at the library. She was sick on her birthday this past Sunday but I know you were watching over her, as it wasn't anything too serious, nothing that can't be helped with some medication. Thank you baby, for always being our family Guardian Angel. Mommy always misses you on special days...Thanksgiving coming up and then Christmas not long after that. Shi is doing pretty good - she had the strangest problem with her ear, something you never had...it's called a hematoma and mom's not even sure how it happened but mom has been giving her some colloidal silver, about a teaspoon, with her food twice a day and it has gone down really quickly. It's like a broken blood vessel and the vet said she should have a drain put in, and would have to be sedated, etc...but thankfully we found another way. 

Hope you enjoy all of your favorite treats today baby...sending you so much love and hugs and kisses...please share them with all of your angel friends...

Love you forever and ever Sweetness...

mommy xoxoxoxo!!!!!

Dear Elise,
Time certainly continues to roll on by doesn't it.... month after month... coming up on 63 months for your Sweetness.... and yet he is always faithful in his love and care... watching over you and your family...  sending you precious memories just when you need them most and yes, I believe directing that poor mama kitty just where to go - how awesome is that!

I'm sorry to hear of Shi's eye and ear issues, I hope that she is fully recovered by now - she is such a beautiful, kind girl and I know a much loved member of your family. Give her some belly rubs from me...

Thank you for your wishes for our trip - yes, we had good time - such a beautiful area of our great country - and as always, the Amtrak ride was perfect.

I hope that your Mom is doing better and is enjoying her retirement... not finding it too stressful to be away from work after all those years of service.  

May you and your entire family have a good Holiday season and may your precious Buddy visit you in a very special way. 

Hugs,
Melanie

Dear Nance, 

Thank you so much for thinking of Buds and for sending him his favorite tummy rubs for his 62nd anniversary! Hard to believe how much time has passed, and here it is, his 63rd today. I'm not sure where this year got off to, but it sure seemed to go by in a hurry. 

I think about how we were all struggling so much, five years ago with Christmas coming...the despair and grief we were going through. I try to focus on the blessings our babies have given us since that time...as we have all had so many precious signs from them, letting us know they have never left us...they truly are close by and watching out for us...

Wishing you and your family the joys of the season and a happy and healthy 2019! 

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Melanie, 

Thanks so much for stopping by...and yes you're so right, I was just writing to Nance how this year has just flown by. I'm glad you were able to get away to a beautiful part of the country earlier this year...I know you and Roger must look forward to those special times away. Every time I think of the Amtrak, I think of my mom and dad taking it out west, through the Rockies and to California for a couple of weeks before Joelee was born. It was their "trip of a lifetime" and I'm so glad they were able to take it while dad was still healthy. Mom still mentions it, as it truly was a highlight for them...

Thanks for sending my sweet Shi the belly rubs...of all the special pups, she loves her belly rubs the most and is quite good at asking for them! Her ear is back to normal...thankfully she never lost her appetite...(well, she's always been good in that department and I'm thankful for that). She is a happy spoiled girl and continues to be a blessing for my family. It's so sweet...sometimes I'll hear mom talking baby talk to her, just the way she used to do with Buds...

Thank you for the well wishes for mom...she is enjoying her retirement although not completely retired, she is only working a few hours a week and doesn't have the responsibility of being in the manager position, which is much better for her. She didn't need the added stress. I hope that your mom is doing well and all of your family... 

Wishing you a peaceful holiday season and blessings for the new year...I hope your precious girl comes for a dream visit very soon.

(((Hugs)))

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Sweetest Bud Bud, 

Mommy here, wishing you a happy 63rd month anniversary at RB! Mommy knows you are busy with Christmas and welcoming the new kids...Melanie's Artie, and now Myles and Gazou have gone to join you this past month. It has been a very hard past few weeks for Gazou's mom Lilianne and also Myles' mom Grace...she so wanted him to make it through Christmas with her but now she is now alone in the house without him and tried so hard to keep him with her...keep him comfortable during his last few weeks, but she had to send him to be with the Angels and now he and Gazou are with you today, celebrating my sweetest boy...!

Mom is missing you today baby...mom thinks of you playing with your friends, having so much fun and wishes so much she and Shi could join you...just go and be with you baby and give you big hugs and lots of kisses. You deserve to be so happy every day sweet boy...please know that mom and Shi send you our love, today and every day! 

Love you forever and ever Pumpkin Boy...

mommy

Dear Elise,
I'm so sorry to hear about Myles' and Gazou's passing... I really feel for their moms, Lilianne and Grace, loss is even more difficult this close to Christmas... please let them know I'm so sorry.   These two new angels have been welcomed by the Bridge Crew and they are about to have the best Christmas ever!

I hope that you and your family enjoy Christmas tomorrow... I'm sure your sweet Buddy will be right there with you and his sister Shi.... I know how you miss him... may you feel him near you in a wonderful way.

Warm hugs,
Melanie

Dearest Elise,

It's been so long since I've been on Petloss but I couldn't let the year finish without wishing all my friends here a very Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year.

I apologize for the anniversaries I've missed but know I always think of all my friends here and I will catch up on Bud's thread.

It's been a bit of a hard year,  I lost my beloved Jadie in May but it gives me a bit of comfort knowing she is with my Smudgie. My parents who are both 93 had a tough year and I'm caregiver ( almost full time) to them and still trying to juggle work,  it's been trying but I'm getting through it.  In addition,  after Jadie passed I was so sad and a friend of mine asked me if I would help foster some kittens, a local rescue had 16 kittens that were only 4 weeks old and they needed volunteers. In honor of my Jadie and Smudgie I offered to help and I have to say they brought my smile back and I became a foster failure,  I welcomed Olive and Jasmine into my house.  I will post pictures of my Jadie and my two new additions later in the week but just wanted to say hi and wish you and yours a Happy New Year.

I have to read your thread,  I want to see how your sweet Shiloh is doing and if Bud's had sent  you any of his beautiful signs.

For now,  Happy New Year and may 2019 be a good year for all of us.

Warm Hugs,

Nancy,  Mom to Calie, Sparkie, Ollie, Jazzie and Angel Smudgie and Angel Jadie.

Dear Melanie, 

Thank you for dropping by to give your heartfelt condolences for Gazou's and Myles's moms. It was a hard Christmas for them as they miss their sweet babies so much, especially laboring through this first Christmas season. They were both thinking of them at RB with their old earthy pals who went on before them, as well as meeting new lifelong friends every day in a place so filled with joy and happiness we cannot even imagine. I know our sweet gang was right there to greet them...

Thanks also for the well wishes for a nice Christmas with family. As you wrote in your poem, these celebrations can never be the same when the ones we love so much are missing, but we do what we can to be in the moment and be grateful for everything that we have. I hope that you also had some special moments with your family this season and a sign from your girl letting you know she's always with you...

Sending you and your precious Lee Lee and Amigos warmest hugs,

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Nance, 

Thank you for your wishes for Myles' and Gazou's moms during this heartbreaking time. I know that they love thinking about their sweet babies playing with our beautiful angels, and being in the happiest place they could ever be in. It helps them through the missing and the letting go, which is only temporary but still so very hard...

Thank you also for wishing mom good health and happiness this holiday season. She had a rough head cold but is doing better now. I hope that your mom is doing well and also wish her much good health this coming year. I hope you will be able to have her for extended visits this year, as she must love spending time with you and the little ones! 

Thinking of you, your mom and precious children, both furkids and human and wishing you all a blessed and peaceful 2019! Thank you for Bud's tummy scratches and kisses...he loves those so much! 

(((Hugs)))

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Nancy, 

So good to hear from you...interestingly, I woke up this morning (or should say Shi woke me early, as she always does)...wondering how you were doing and that it had been a while and was hoping all was well with you and your family. 

I'm so sorry to hear that this has been such a difficult year, with the loss of your Jadie earlier this year and also doing full time care-giving for your folks. I remember you saying Jade was having some health issues in March and was hoping she had come through OK. I know it must be such a comfort to you, knowing that she and Smudgie are together, touching paws like they always loved to do...cuddling and snuggling and just being all warm and happy... 

Were you able to move a bit closer to be with your mom and dad? I hope that you had a nice Christmas with them...some special moments you will treasure always. I hope you are able to get the rest that you need, while still going to work.

Thank you for sharing the story about your "foster fails" Olive and Jasmine! I know what you mean about fostering...it's so hard to see them go once you've taken care of these precious ones...I think for them as well, at least at first so it's wonderful to hear that they found their forever home with you. I'm sure that your babies Calie and Sparkie love their new little sisters very much...I'm so happy for all of you!

Wishing you and your family a healthy, happy 2019...I hope that you find your sweet Angels Smudgie and Jadie in the stars as you send your love to them and they to you... 

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Nance, 

Thank you so much for stopping by to wish us a Happy New Year filled with peace and good health, and also dream visits from my beautiful golden boy. I would welcome that so much!

I wish peace and good health for you also, and your wonderful family. I can only imagine how big your boys must be getting! I hope your mom is well and that you will have some precious moments together this year...

I was very happy for you, that Little B came in a dream visit the other night...it is such a blessing when our sweet babies find these ways to "cross over" and connect! 

(((Hugs)))

Dearest Sweetest Baby Boy, 

Happy Anniversary celebration baby! Here it is...2019 in earthly years...so hard to believe the time that continues to go by, even more quickly it seems, with each passing year. Mommy is thinking of you today, romping and playing with your beautiful pals, baby...I'm sure they made you a huge cake and that you're all enjoying it and also some nice cool vanilla ice cream!

Mommy can just see you romping in the snow, digging for bones or treats that "somehow" found their way into the snowbanks! That would be a fun game...maybe Lee Lee has hidden a pretty away in the snow for you today to find! 

Golden Rescue continues to do many good works in this world, baby. They are bringing more goldens over from Istanbul, Turkey to find new and loving homes. When mom has more time she will do volunteer work again and continue their mission of love and rescue.

Shi is doing good...she loves the snow just like you do, baby and she loves making her snow angels! We are getting lots of snow this weekend...maybe over a foot...that will make Shi very happy!  

Please give all of your beautiful sweet pals hugs from mom on your special day, and for you my baby...biggest hugs, kisses and your favorite belly rubs! 

Love you always and forever sweet son...miss you always...it would be so nice if you could come in a dream visit soon...

Love mommy,

xoxoxoxoxo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We usually make wishes in Chinese new year and I wish you and your family good health and all goods things come to you in the new year and many years ahead!

Warm hugs to you and your mom,

Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

Thank you for thinking of me and mom and our family! I know winter time reminds you of me...it is always one of my favorite times of year as I love my snowballs and playing my Frisbees! 

We babies always celebrate on Chinese New Year it is so much fun because we love to celebrate it and it is a new and exciting beginning! I love your special wish for more humanity for this coming year...for more hearts to be filled with love! I want to wish you and your family a very Happy Valentine's Day today...I hope you had a very special day filled with lots of love on this the Day of Love! 

Thank you for mentioning the Golden Babies coming from Turkey and all over the place...it is a blessing that so many people are caring so much for earthly fur babies...we babies in heaven love to see the human progress in the right direction of love and compassion! 

Sending you and your family heaven hugs and kisses...thank you for reaching out to me and mom! 

Love and Angel Hugs,

Bud Bud

Dear Nance, 

So good to hear from you...Happy Chinese New Year Wishes and Blessings to you and your family...I'm sorry to be late in getting back to you. I pray that all of your Chinese New Year wishes come true...thank you so much for blessing us with your wishes for good health and things to come in the future! I try to be optimistic for the kid's sake...

It is uplifting to see the work of the rescue moving forward and yes, every time I look at one of those Golden faces, I think of my Buds and also Evie Doll and Shi. There was one baby that was having such a hard time finding a good home but she finally did and it was an answer to prayer as she had to be homed with no other pets which is sometimes hard to find. 

I hope you have smooth sailing through the tax season and before we know it, it will be spring! We are all very tired of winter here...even though we've had some milder days, winter is still winter and it is nice to see it go...

Sending warmest hugs to you and your family...human and fur babies! May Little B and Tropi come in a dream visit very soon! 

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Bud Bud Sweetness, 

Happy anniversary sweetest boy! Mom was thinking of you so much yesterday for Valentine's, how you kids must have had a big delicious party celebrating all of the love that you angels share every day! Mommy misses you so much...she sees you so much in Shi and wishes you could have met Lil Sis in your earthly life but you were living miles away and Shi was only a young pup when you went to RB. 

We are having a long winter here baby...you would have loved it just the way Shi loves it when she is rolling around on top of the snow. It looks so cold to do that but for some reason you kids just love it! Mom got Shi some winter booties the other day but they are not very well made so mom is looking to see if they can be sewed with more material. She doesn't complain at all baby, when mom puts them on her on the coldest of days...she knows they are protecting her paws and she doesn't even try to get them off but mom knows you would have because you never liked anything on your feet! 

Mom will never forget the wintertime with you when we moved to the private road...how much you loved being free and going off on your own. Mom knows you have all the space in the world now...all the snowbanks you could ever want to play and jump in with your sweet pals. 

Mommy loves you so much baby...have a blessed day today Angel, celebrating with all of your sweet pals! Mom and Shi are sending you lots of hugs and kisses and as Lee Lee's Mama likes to say, we are one day closer to being together sweet boy!

Love you always and forever,

mommy xoxoxoxoxoxo!!!!!!!!

Hi Elise,

I haven't been on since the New Year so I apologize for not responding to your beautiful post from January.  

This year really hasn't started very good, my parents are both in rehab; my mom broke her hip and my Dad is being treated for blood clots and I've injured my back. But we are all getting through it and sloooowly are recovering.  Between care giving and my job,  I haven't had a chance to look for a house  closer to my parents,  but it's something that has become a priorty. On a sadder note,  I lost my beloved Calie 3 weeks ago,  in 9 months I lost my sweet Jadie and now Calie.  My last old girl is Sparkie,  and she is just lost without her sisters,  I feel so sad for her....the kittens help,  but I know she misses her older sisters.  Calie was my first kitty, she was quirky and crazy and always had a confused look on her face that just tugged at my heart.

I'm so sorry I've missed Buddy's anniversaries, I know Buddy's 6th anniversary is coming up this year, because today is Smudgie's 5th anniversary and I know Buddy passed before Smudgie.  It's so hard to believe that so much time has passed by but it brings me a bit of comfort to know she is with 2 of her sisters.  

It made me smile when you wrote about how much Shi is loving the snow and how much Buddy use to love the snow.  I remember you posting beautiful snow pictures of Buddy a few years back. There is nothing that makes one smile more than a beautiful dog romping and enjoying the snow. How old is Shi now,  it's sad I've lost all track of time.  I hope you and your family are doing well and this year brings you much joy and happiness.  I don't know about you,  but I'm just about done with the winter and I'm so looking forward to Spring. 

Thank you for thinking of me and my girls,  I know you wrote that the day I posted a message you woke up wondering how I was doing.  It might take me a while to get back here,  but this is one place I will always return to,  it brings me such comfort.

Wishing you much peace, love, health and happiness to you, Shi, your family and your beloved Buddy.

Hugs my friend,

Nancy,  Mom to Sparkie, Ollie, Jazzie, Angel Smudgie, Angel Jadie and new winged Angel Calie

Dear Nance, 

Thank you for stopping by to wish Buds a happy anniversary...I know that he had a wonderful fun-filled day with all of his sweet RB pals! I love how you describe my baby in winter...his handsome face with the beautiful snow flakes. Shi is very much the same...she will roll around on the snow and then she will have a white snowy nose and cheeks...it reminds me so much of her big bro! You are so right...it is "pure Buddy" thinking of these wintertime memories of him and yes, our babies are such ongoing symbols of love and pureness of heart! 

Shi and I are very fortunate to have made a good friend just across the street in Brockville, who does in-home training for Canadian guide dogs. She had her most recent trainee for almost a year...she left this past Monday to continue more formal training and it was a hard day for all of us, seeing her go. It is sort of like fostering in that regard...you have them for a time, knowing that they'll leave one day and in her case, she is going on to serve a higher purpose. My friend who does the volunteer work for them wants to work with at least one more guide dog trainee but it is difficult walking in the winter here, because of the ice. I hope you've had an easy winter in Vancouver...here, not so much and we are all tired of it and wanting spring! 

Sending warm hugs to you and your family, 

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Nancy, 

It's so nice to hear from you any time you're able to stop by...I'm sorry though, that it isn't under happier or easier circumstances. I hope that both you and your parents continue to get better from your health challenges and injuries, however long it takes. I know how hard care-giving can be, trying to juggle everything else you have going on and continuing to work also. I hope you can find a home closer to your folks this spring...I know it will be a great comfort for them having you near. 

I'm so sorry to hear of Calie's recent passing not long after Jade's...you and Sparkie must be lost. I'm glad that you have the kittens to keep things light but it's still very difficult losing our sweet older babies. I know what you mean about the time passing...I was thinking of Smudgie on her day, just a few days ago...so hard to believe five years has gone...where did it go? I know that day must have been so hard for you...these year anniversaries are never easy but as Melanie says, we are that much closer to being with our beloved children. Time just seems to evaporate anymore...today is six years for Melanie and Angel Lee Lee...

On a happier note, yes...my Shi absolutely loves the snow and in the summer, she loves swimming as well. Every time we go for a walk she is sure to make at least a couple of "snow angels". When I am at the new home in Brockville and not at my mother's across the border, we try to spend time over at our new friend's place who does volunteer work for Canadian guide dogs. It is Shi's "happy place" as there is a large fenced in yard there to roll around and play in, as well as her doggy pal Toby who lives there, who is almost three. Toby was in the guide dog program but didn't adjust to kennel life, so my friend was able to adopt him outright. He is a sweet handsome boy...so friendly and goofy. It's so interesting how he plays gentler with Shi than he did with the guide dog in training (Sibby) who just left a few days ago for higher level training. We are all hoping Sibby will do well with the group training and will go on to graduate with flying colors!

Toby and Sibby are about the same age and I have some incredible videos of them playing...(with Shi also, who was always looking for a way to get in the middle of them)...and some pictures as well. It's hard to believe but Shi will be 8 this year, the end of August. She is getting more white around the muzzle but isn't showing signs of slowing down which I'm so thankful for. She is still able to hold her own with Toby and I think he will help keep her young with their romps! 

Well I will close for now and post this. Thank you so much for the wishes for good health and happiness this year...that means alot. My mom is still holding her own, something I continue to be very grateful for. I wish the same for you and your family also...as you say Nancy, even though we aren't able to come here as often given life's many challenges, this truly is a place we all return to...

Sending warm hugs and blessings to you and your family (and sweet furbabies Smudgie, Jade & Calie in heaven, and sweet Sparkie and your precious kittens here)...

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

P.S. Here's to springtime...hopefully very soon!

Dear Sweet Buds, 

Happy anniversary beloved son...mommy hopes you had a beautiful day playing with your sweet pals and enjoying all of the fun things you love to do the most! Did you have some delicious cake and ice cream today baby? I bet you have a different kind every anniversary as you love your food and treats so much!

Mom is late writing you today...it has been a difficult week with Gram having been taken sick earlier this week but she is home now from a few days in the hospital. She is feeling better and is more like herself and she will be going to the library tomorrow for a few hours. Shi is doing well but she doesn't like the weather right now and doesn't want to spend much time outside. It is cold and rainy and she would rather have it snowy so she can play and do her snow angels just like you sweetest boy...

Mommy knows it must be almost springtime in heaven baby...mommy is thinking of you and your sweet friends romping in a beautiful meadow filled with flowers and trees...streams and lakes...

Mom loves to think of you chasing your tail...mom knows you still do that and then grab your back leg and fall over in a big heap...you probably make all of the kids laugh with your funny ways! You bless mom with so many wonderful memories, my beautiful blessing boy...giving blessings wherever you go...

Sending you lots of hugs and kisses and tummy rubs baby...Lil Sis Shi sends her love...we miss you!

Love you so much sweet son,

mommy

Dear HSC and Bubbly Boy,

A saw a couple of Golden boys last Friday, and A was thinking of you, A came to them and kept on saying that A loves Golden babies, and their owners was very pleased.

Hope you have a good time with Little b and your pals, it is spring and you kids must have a great time running around in such nice weather.  Please stay close to mom and grandma, they need your love!

Sending you lots of warm angel tummy rubs and kisses, Bubbly Boy!

Love,
A. BedoTropiMom

Elise,

Hope your mom is doing well, I miss my mom too as she had came back to Toronto last September.  It has been hard for her to travel and I miss her so much.  I want to go for a visit, but it is hard to bring the twins along.
I know Bud wills always be with you and mom, sending his love and blessings as he knows how much mom loves him!
Hugs, and sending my regards to your mom.

Dear Nance, 

Thanks so much for stopping by last month for Buddy's anniversary. So hard to believe we are already mid-April of this year...where has the time gone? 

That's so nice you met a couple of Golden kids last month on one of your outings...I am sure you made the owners happy when you said how much you love Golden babies. Just the other day I was walking Shi and met a woman who just adopted an 8 month old Golden...she thought maybe Shi was an "English Cream" golden...! I had never heard that term before, but it seems to fit her...

Shi has made a new friend here in Brockville...his name is Toby and he is a yellow lab, and actually he looks more golden in color than Shi does, as she is so light in coloring! He has the sweetest personality and the biggest brown eyes that just melt your heart...he's always so friendly and sweet. I was visiting with his mom yesterday and saw pictures of him when he was just 4 months old...such a cute sweet boy! He was in training for becoming a guide dog but he didn't make the cut so to speak, because he never adapted to the kennel life, so my friend had a chance to adopt him last year and she did. I will have to post a picture of Shi and Toby playing...once the weather gets better they will be playing out in my friend's backyard and I'll take a few pictures to share.

I hope so much that your mom will be able to come for a visit this summer...I can imagine it must be difficult for you to go to Toronto with your young family, and it is probably too long of a car ride right now. I hope your mom is doing well. Thank you so much for the well wishes for my mom...we had a bit of a scare last month. She ended up with a bad infection that resulted in sepsis but thankfully we caught it in time and rushed her into emergency. She stayed for 3 days on powerful antibiotics and has bounced back as well as can be expected. 

I hope you are having nice spring days in Vancouver now! Saturday was beautiful here, then yesterday we had steady rain and it has turned to cold and damp again but that's April here, as you know and we need the rain...

Sending hugs to you and your family...

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dear Sweetest Bud Bud, 

Happy Anniversary baby...Shi and mom are sending you big hugs today and every day! We hope you are having a great day today celebrating with all of your sweet angel pals. We are heading back to gram's for a few days...she has had a hard time lately but she is coming along and doing well for the most part. Please watch over her, and also Aunt Kris as she is away this week with friends on spring break. 

Thank you baby, for always being our family Guardian Angel...always looking out for us in every way. Mommy loves you more than you could ever know, sweetest son. Yesterday, we were watching a funny video of Shi playing at gram's...mommy had forgotten about this video but she was grabbing her tail in order to turn herself over! It reminded mom of you in the sweet way you would always grab your tail and go in circles before going on a walk...you would get so excited!

That's just so uniquely you baby...Shi just starts barking when she's ready for a walk and mom tries to calm her down and keep her quiet but not you...you had a totally different way of letting everyone know how excited you were to go outside! Mom loves how the littlest things make you happy baby...both you and Shi. Shi's earthly friend Toby, who is the "younger man" in her life just loves her so much...it is so sweet how he plays more gently with her than he did with Sibby, who was a bit younger than him. Mom will have to take more videos of them playing once the weather is better here. 

Enjoy the spring time baby...mommy is sending you lots of hugs, kisses and treats for your special day today! 

Love you forever and always...

mommy xoxoxoxoxo!!!!!
