We have a large garden and we have been able to plant a tree for each of our dogs that have died. So we have a Tessa palm, a Bandido love tree and a Cally hibiscus. It is wonderful to sit in their shade in the summer and remember the good times. Sadly the Bandido and Cally trees were planted within a month of each other. He died suddenly and she at 16 just gave up with out him. I still miss them even though it is 3 years now and we have 4 other dogs the latest turning up outside our gate badly injured on Tuesday. He has had 1 operation so far and today we sat under the Bandido tree together and he was very relaxed and calm so there is hope for him. I don't want another tree just yet.

Evie---What a beautiful idea to plant trees in memory of your beloved babies!   Thank you for sharing that with us.

Hello Evie Spain,

It is nice to be able to sit outside. Right now we have snow drifts that would swallow the Doxies, so we are all inside keeping warm.

O think it is wonderful to have trees planted for your fur kids.

Hershey is still here with us. When the Going to the Sun Road clears we will scatter his ashes across lake McDonald, a favorite spot in the park for myself and the Hershs brothers. Baby Kugs has yet to see the Park.

Hugs and peace,

Hi Evie, this is Di.  I live in Spain too.  Good on you for rescuing your latest, as you know there are so many unwanted animals here.  Lovely idea with the trees.  Our garden is small, but I have a Basil bonsai tree......

The planting of trees for departed fur babies is a lovely idea, what comfort that must bring you to see the symbolism of life continuing.  Our babies are always beside us, we can sense their presence if we let ourselves believe this.  For every tree or plant we place in the earth, we are honoring our fur babies by beautifying the world they loved so much.  I think I will plant something at the one year marker for Nike.   Hugs from Houston, MsSavion

Evie---When my Teddy passed away late Oct. it was too difficult to deal with the Christmas holidays.  I didn't want any tree or decorations because I was too sad.  However,  I decided to get a living tree--one that you can plant.  We placed our "Teddy Tree" on the deck, put colored lights on it, and after the holidays we placed it in a temporary hole.  Pretty soon, we will be putting it in a permanent place.  I am so thrilled that this little tree that represents my furbaby's life, is thriving and oh so healthy.  Maybe this is a sign from her that everything is OK.  We also have a tiny little tree that we planted for our 2 kitties, Purrsy & Klaws. 
    I will pray that your newest fur member will be OK and you won't have to sit under any new trees for awhile!

                                       Hugs--Teddy's Mom

How wonderful to have a garden spot to sit and remember.  I am going to make one this year.   We don't have enough room for trees, but will be planting butterfly bushes, Nina was always amazed by butterflies.  You are truly a wonderful person for taking in an injured dog and having an operation done that was needed.   He found the right place.   I am saying extra prayers that he will soon be up and around with no problems.   Please share his name if you feel like it.  

You both will be in my prayers,
Nina Maria's Mom

What a wonderful idea to plant a memory tree.  I am planning a memory garden for my kitty, Gus.  It will have a little waterfall--my Gus loved water.:-)

God knew where to send one of his creatures that needed help.  Your are obviously a very loving person.  I am praying for your newest furbaby.

Can I say a big thank you to all for their prayers. One month on and Pipin is well, putting on weight and playing with the other 3 as if he has always been here. He has sadly lost the sight in his left eye, but it does not seem to bother him and he copes with it well. Just occasionally he forgets and hits something on the left side that he has not seen, but shakes his head and carries on he is a strong little lad and full of fun.

Thanks for the update Evie,

I am so glad that Pipin is doing well, and has adapted to losing the sight in his eye.  Rescue dogs are such grateful creatures, they just seem to want to give and get more love than non rescues.  I have had Ben since Jan this year, and he is a rescue.  He is sweet and loving, and the best behaved dog that I have ever had.

Well done Evie, you are very special. Much Love, Di in Spain Too. xxx
