Melanie, your Lee Lee knows when you are sad, and she always tries to send you a special sign. The little heart was such a wonderful gift from her. I know the signs come when we least expect it, and I know how much joy they can bring into our life when we see them. I pray that Lee Lee will always find a way to let you know she is near. Unseen, unheard, but felt in the heart and soul, that is our fur angels.

I know this posted in 2013. I wept openly when I read about your relationship with LeeLee.
I am having the same feelings about my Sara. I euthanized her last Friday and I can't function. Friends are concerned about me and say this reaction is not "normal".

Dear Brenda,
Thanks for your kind post.  You are so right about the signs... you just never know when you'll be gifted with one.... and usually it is when you least expect it.... and.... when you most need it.  I got another little heart sign yesterday, so I know she is near.  

I love this: "Unseen, unheard, but felt in the heart and soul"....so very true.

Thinking of you and your sweet boy Harry.
Hugs,
Melanie

Dear Sara2018,
First of all, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss of your precious Sara.... it is truly a loss like no other... understood by few... discounted by most.... but you have come to the right place... all of us here.... sadly... understand the magnitude of this grief.  Second, what you are feeling is completely normal... you have lost a dear member of your family and heartwrenching grief is the result.... give yourself time to mourn.

Thank you for visiting my Lee Lee's page... I'm glad that her story touched you.... she was, and still is my heart... I will miss her until I see her again.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for peace....
Melanie,
~always.... Lee's Mama~

Lee Lee My Angel....
Thank you for the little heart yesterday.... I hope that you can continue to send me your sweet little signs.... I live for those little touches from you.

I was thinking today about the passing time ... how it is both a curse and a blessing.... each day taking me further away from the days of our life together.... but, each day is also bringing closer our reunion.  I picture you running to meet me with that huge smile on your little face.... bringing me a pretty that you have found...

I miss you so.....

Mama luvs you err and err...

Kisses and Scratches....

Wish you a happy 5 year and 4th month...You and Bedo so alike, you both keep sending us signs and thats is so sweet! mommy loves every sign of blessing from you and she loves you so.  Thinking back the first time I got
to know you from this site, it seems like yesterday! we moms/dads are so blessed as you wise angels have led us together and I am so blessed to know your sweet mom, who has  a heart of an angel and you are a very
lucky girl.

Dear Melanie,
I think of you and Sweet Lee Lee often and I am so happy and blessed to know you.  I wish you peace and comfort on Lee Lee's Anniversary and I wish you well.  I know no matter how much time has passed by, our babies
are always with us....We are the odd people are so attached to love that everything is hard...we all know how it feels, and I wish peace and the love of our angels will make everything easier....

Dear Nance,
I was thinking of you and all your precious little ones just last night... I was looking at my picture book from the trip we took to Seattle in 2014 and remembering looking across the water and knowing you were just right over there..... I don't usually check back here so soon after Lee Lee's anniversary.... but, I felt like coming back.... and what a nice surprise to find your wonderful letter to Lee Lee and me.... we must have been thinking of each other at the same time!  

I'm so, so glad that your precious little Bedo is keeping in close touch with you.... doesn't it just lift your heart and brighten your day when you receive a sign from him?  Yes... it is all still hard, I suppose that it will always be... but I'm thankful that we have our friends from Pet Loss that completely understand... it makes me feel not so alone on this journey.  It is amazing to me that somehow... we all found each other here, even though our angels left at different times... and we are from different parts of the world.... I think that you are right - our sweet babies had a paw in all of us meeting.  And it comforts me to think that Lee Lee is with Bedo, Tropi, AA girls and all the others... they are waiting together for the day when each of us will go home.

Thank you for thinking of us - hearing from you was such a blessing. You are just the sweetest lady Nance, and it is my honor to call you my friend. I hope that you and your sweet family are doing well, I know your little boys are getting so big and I'm sure keeping you very busy.

I wish you peace and comfort in your memories of all your little Angels.... may they come to visit you in a dream tonight.
Hugs,
Melanie

Dearest Angel Lee Lee, 

Thank you for finding a way to warm your Mama's heart with the special sign you sent her...letting her know you are always close by her side! Your Mama dreams of the beautiful pretty you're keeping for her when she comes home to you! I hope you had fun on your anniversary celebration...we moms and dads think of you babies and we know you're watching out for us always! 

Enjoy Buddy's party today, sweet one!


Dear Melanie, 

I was happy to read that you were blessed another one of Lee Lee's little "heart signs" so close to her anniversary...she's determined to "come through" to you from the other side whenever she can, giving you reassurance that she's right here with you and all is well. 

I know what you mean about the time being a blessing and a curse...we know that the earthly life we shared with our beloved babies is complete, so what they encourage us to do is keep our eyes on the many blessings to come, while sprinkling in some precious "signs" for our present, as we journey closer to our reunions...

I loved what you wrote to Nance...how our sweet babies had a paw in bringing us all together...they sure knew we needed some understanding human soulmates on this hardest of journeys...it's so amazing to me how they have looked after us with so much love...

Sending you and sweetest angel Lee Lee warmest hugs,

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Lee Lee’s Mama,
I am so very sorry for your loss. But know some people do understand. She was your baby. I have children and my Raider was their little brother. You will always think of her as she was part of your heart, but you will mend. Notice mend, there will always be a scar. That is just proof you love her. May you find peace.

Hi Jillbeane. I am so sorry for your loss. I am completely heartbroken as well. My baby, my puppy only 6 months, snuck out of our deck door and was killed right in front of my eyes when she was hit by a car. I cradled her and cried for hours. I haven’t really stopped. My husband blames me for her death and has said I killed her because the door was slightly ajar when she snuck out. I was letting my golden in, she’s 6. It has been horrible and grief consumes me. I just want to sleep and dream of her. It’s only been a month but is so hard to even get up in the morning. My children and other two dogs help. We love them so deeply. I completely understand your heartbreak and hope these gets easier for us someday. Hugs to you. Jenni A.

Jenni,
I am very sorry for your loss. One thing you have to know though, her death was NOT your fault. It was a tragic accident. It is hard enough, don’t take on that guilt too.

Dear Elise,
It is so good to hear from you.... I appreciate your sweet words for my little Lee Lee.... and yes, I do think about her little pretties.... I can't wait to see her and discover all the pretties she's been collecting for me. I have a photo of her that I keep on my desk... she is bounding toward me with one of her favorite 'sticks' (rawhide chew) and the sweetest smile.... that is how I picture her... running to meet me on our reunion day...

Time continues to pass by.... and even though we don't write as often as we did for a long time I still think of you and everyone here often.... the wonderful kindness you've all shown to me over the years is such a blessing.... I can't imagine having to travel this road of grief and loss without all my dear friends who understand completely, accept without questions and are always so supportive.  Grief can be very isolating, especially from those who don't 'get it"..... I don't know how I would have made it without you all.  Our babies knew just how to connect us all... didn't they?

I hope that you, Shi and your family are all doing okay.  I know that your dearest Buddy's Five Year Anniversary is coming in October.... for me at least, five years felt like a 'milestone'... I will be thinking of you.... and hoping that you feel his presence in a special way.

Sending you, Shi and Angel Buddy the warmest of hugs...
Melanie

Hi Paula (PB313),
I wanted to thank you very much for taking the time to visit my Lee Lee's page when you own grief is so raw.  I appreciate your kind words - it is definitely a blessing to know that there are people who understand this struggle.  

I read your story of the loss sweet little Raider... I can tell from your writings how much Raider means to you.... I am so very sorry.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.. I hope that you find peace and comfort in your precious memories.

Melanie

Lee Lee My Little Angel,

Today when I was walking,  I saw some people riding around the neighborhood in a golf cart and I remembered how much you loved riding around the roads in the car with your head hanging out the window.  You would have enjoyed a golf cart so, so much!  But I'll bet I'd have had a hard time keeping you in the seat.  

We are preparing to leave for vacation in 3 weeks.... it still doesn't feel right to me that I'm not planning for your needs and packing all your things....  Please send me plenty of signs along the way like you always do...

Mama luvs you soooo much - Kisses and scratches Woody.

Dear Melanie, 

Thanks so much for your reply - I can just imagine the picture of Lee Lee with a rawhide treat, bounding towards you...a reminder of all the good things to come when you're reunited on that best day ever! I was thinking of you and Lee Lee today, another 8th of the month anniversary for your precious girl in heaven. August 8th is a day I'll never forget, as it was the day when the world went upside down with confirmation that Buddy was quite ill those five years ago now. As you said, time continues to pass...half a decade already, so hard to believe...

Like you, I realize that this terrible road of grief and sorrow would have been impossible to bear without the unconditional love, compassion and kindness of all my dear friends here. And yes, our sweetest children knew what they were doing, bringing us all together, for companionship, support and healing...what wise old souls! I never doubt for a moment that they are keeping an eye on us...our sweetest guardian angels. 

Thank you for the well wishes for my family - everyone is doing quite well...my mom continues to hang in there and enjoy life for the most part. Don't know if I mentioned, but it is her last year managing the library...she can't handle getting out in the winter at night anymore but I know she will fill her time with activities and more good books to read. She still plans to work part time, but only day time hours, and some subbing. I hope that you and your family are well...did you take a trip this summer? I hope that your mom and Roger are doing well and enjoying the summertime.  

Shi and I have been doing our usual routine, back and forth from Canada and the U.S. We've made wonderful new friends across the street - Vickey and John who are both dog lovers, and animal lovers in general. When I am here, I take Shi over to their place for a bit in the later afternoon, as they have a beautiful fenced in backyard where the pups can play and romp. Vickey is a volunteer for Canadian guide dogs for the blind...she has a beautiful black lab pup she is training (Sibby)...and a blind dog "fail" that she had trained and ended up adopting...(Toby). We love watching all of them play...it is definitely Shi's "happy place" and I'm so thankful for this new friendship with them. Toby is going to be lost when Sibby goes in a couple of months but when I'm here, for sure I'll take Shi over for him to visit with.  

I told Vickey I would bring over Buddy's coffee table book from the Golden Rescue to show her. Very emotional, looking at his pictures and write-up again...it didn't take long for the tears to flow. Thank you for thinking of us in these upcoming weeks...hard to believe it is almost that time of September again...

I hope that precious Angel Lee Lee will give you a little heart sign very soon...sending you both warm hugs and wishes for a special dream visit that you can carry with you always... 

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Lee Lee My Sweet Angel,
As you know, we just returned from vacation... and we missed you so very much.  I'm thankful for all the little signs you sent while we were away.... but I'm most grateful for this one...

[IMG_7766%202] 

We were walking on a trail to a waterfall and I was talking to you (silently in my head) as I often do.... and I asked you for a sign and I asked God to help you send me a sign.... and to make it a huge one.... one that I could not possibly miss (because I was afraid that walking along I would miss something).... and just a few feet later... around the next curve in the trail.... this is what I saw straight ahead across the valley.

You definitely made it big enough that I could not help but notice.... a giant "L" on the side of a cliff!! I about started bawling... I asked you and you sent it!

Mama luvs you sooooo much and I always will.... kisses and scratches Baby Doll...

Lee Lee, such a wonderful sign you sent your mom, one that could not be missed. She asked, and you found a way to let her know that no matter where she is, you are always with her. I bet you sat in heaven and looked down on her with a huge grin on your face, and you was saying, "Can you see it mommy, I put it there just for you." You wanted to let her know you will always be there, because you are. Keep sending her those signs, keep letting her know that though you are not with her physically, you are always with her spiritually. You are a good girl, and I know that you will always find ways to bring a light into your mom's world. The light you bring is love, and what better light can there be, than the love between two kindred souls.

Thank you ladies for your kind words.... it was such a nice surprise to come here today and see that you had written.

****

Linda, That huge "L" was so awesome.... the way it happened couldn't have been more perfect.  I stepped out of the trees and straight ahead - there it was.  

I read your post in the "are you still grieving" thread... you are 100% correct about the culture of this country and people putting a limit on grief.  Recently I read a quote that said something like:

"Grief will last as long as the love does.... forever.  It is the way the absence of someone you love manifests in your heart."

Thinking of you... I'm so very sorry about your Joey...Hugs

*****

Brenda,
I love the way you wrote to Lee Lee.... I imagined her sitting up there watching with great anticipation as I stepped out of the trees and caught sight of her "L" .... that made me tear up.... thank you for that.   You have a way with words.... "what better light can there be than the love between two kindred souls".... beautiful.

Hugs my friend

****

After the "L"... I started asking her for a heart, one of the other signs she usually sends me... I felt a bit greedy.... asking for another huge sign after I just got the "L".... but I asked anyway... and again I asked for it to be so big I couldn't miss it.....

A few days later we went on a little short trail.... unplanned.... and around a curve... this is what I saw.   It's rather upside down... but even that seems appropriate.... my world and my heart feels upside down now...

[IMG_0766]

Thank you Lee Lee.... for all you do for me.... Mama loves you soooooo much.

Kisses for the sugar spot and Scratches for the tail bone.

Dear Melanie, 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful "L" pictures of Lee Lee's loving reminders, so prominent in the beautiful natural settings you were able to take in on your trip. It must have been so amazing for you, to have come around the bend on that trail, right after asking her for a sign and seeing yet another miraculous touch and obvious communication from your beautiful girl! 

I couldn't have said it any better, what Brenrae wrote...it doesn't matter how many days "apart"...we are never ever truly apart from our beloved children...no matter what happens in this earthly life, our babies always find a way to be an active and loving presence. How beautiful and poetic those words she wrote about the light and love between two kindred souls that never ends... 

Dear Lee Lee, 

Happy anniversary day in heaven, beautiful girl! Thank you for sending your sweet Mama your precious double "L" signs on her trip...she knows you carry her in your heart every day, just as she does. Every day you come closer together in the promise of your forever love...you are such an encourager for her...you always find a way to let her know you are close! I hope you're having lots of fun today with all of your sweet pals...I bet you're storing up all sorts of pretties for Mama...

Love and (((Hugs))) to you and Mama, 


Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy

Dearest Melanie,

It is good to "see" you here, sharing your love & precious stories of Lee Lee.  She loves her Mama, and stays connected with you no matter what.  It's true that the love never dies.  She will be the first to greet you, in that far away future.

Death has become common in my world, unfortunately.  There is no one that gets out alive.  Can we make peace with it, instead of fearing it?  Can we ensure that we live the lives we are meant to while here, so that we are truly living vs surviving the days?

All questions that I ponder, since the very first loss.

Sending love, always.

Dear Melanie,
Lee Lee is such a Wise girl, she keeps sending signs to sooth her mommy's heart and to let her know that she is never far away! It is so special that you carry her heart wherever you go, as she is near, she would be able to enjoy what she used to in her own way.  We love our babies and we carry them in our hearts, that's why they are with us till eternity.

Hugs,

Nance 

Dear Lee Lee,

Have a good belated anniversary, please enjoy the time with your pals and keep on sending mommy sweet signs!

Love,

Dear Elise, Linda and Nance,
Thank you my friends, so much, for your kind words for my Lee Lee and me. I do apologize for not responding sooner, it has been a difficult few weeks.... Artie, or RT (far right in the photo) as we shortened it to, has joined his friends at the Bridge. After we returned from vacation, he just never seemed "right" - he slowly became more picky about his eating and was ultimately diagnosed with cancer and we made the decision to send him on his way.  He was 16 years old... and quite a neurotic old man, but he is missed.

[IMG009] 

Lee Lee, Skinny, Munch and Artie(RT)

So the Four Amigo are together again - what a Christmas it will be for them.

Dear Melanie, 

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of RT...another family member in heaven but he is happy now, together again with your precious Lee Lee, Munch and Skinny. I love this photo of your "Four Amigos" all in a row...they look like they're just done with a romp and all curled up for a nice warm afternoon sun bath!  

I hope you have a peaceful Christmas season with family and that this new year holds many blessings, healing and precious signs from your beloved Rosalee, as every day is one day closer...

Sending warmest (((Hugs)))...

Elise, mom to Shiloh and Angel Buddy
