Last night I had a dream and Simon, our dachshund came to us. We were driving by a building and there he was, walking down the street. I hopped out the car and grabbed him and kissed him and felt his soft fur. It was so real that I woke up only to realize it was a dream.
I guess this month will be hard because it is my birthday month and Simon was such a part of it. I will miss getting his birthday card and his birthday kisses. I am trying to be strong and I have been a bit better but then grief comes over me and I am just so sad. I know he has been on my mind a lot more this week. I missed dressing him for Halloween. My husband and I had to change the screen in our door to our glass door and we must have forgotten to wipe off one section of it before we stored it for summer. Simon's kisses were at the bottom...it is my birthday this month and he will not be a part of it. We raked leaves yesterday and I missed him jumping with the kids in the leaf piles. I am sure that is why he was so clear in my dream. I believe that is how God lets you know that things are okay. I am feeling the need to snuggle with him in the colder weather and I am forgetting what that felt like because he has been gone for a month and a half. That is hard for me too. I just wish I could have one more cuddle....he forever lives in my heart. Thanks for listening. Many blessings to you all. Doreen

Hello Doreen, Peace as you continue to mourn Simon. He is enjoying himself in true Doxie fashion at the bridge with Hershey, CeeCee, Bradley, and many other friends. Hershey was very much here to help us celebrate his earth brothers birthday on Friday. Kuggel is now three. His oldest earth brother Silver is almost 14, Mozart is 8 and Rggels is also 3.

Sorry about Simon. Dachunds are cute. Benji and Paco used to play with one who went to the bridge during the holidays. Maybe your Simon is at the bridge playing with Charlie right now.

Doreen, Your sweet Simon came to visit you in a dream. He showed you he is doing well and his love is still there for you. What a gift. Yes, I know how hard it is to have your first birthday without him. I just had my second without my boy. I wrote here on these boards when I had my first too. It's good you came here to talk about it. All of those "firsts" without our babies are tough. We tried to do a little something out of the ordinary, to help us get through particular days. My heart is with you as your grieve Simon. Hugs of comfort, Lori
