I have only been on this site for a few hours, and I already feel the love and support. This has been a rough day, as Chewie's ashes were brought home. I'm trying to remember the good times that we had, which were many. I can remember being on the computer for too long, and he came up and sat on my laptop. My wireless is broken, so I have to sit on the floor. Thinking about things like that make me smile.
I think Chewie may have even been one of the only dogs that I've known to actually dig up a mole. I remember one day he was in the yard digging, and I came out and wondered what he had in his mouth. There was dirt dug up everywhere, and he had a mole in his mouth. I had never seen one before, so I wasn't quite sure what it was at first. I got him to let go, and the mole returned to the ground to continue digging up my yard. Chewie was devastated, so I gave him his favorite treat. (I'm a softy) I sometimes feel that he is here with me. I'm by myself, so I tend to notice when things are different. I keep thinking that I hear him somewhere. I'm going to make a small garden in the backyard in remembrance of him. I also want to get a journal to write in. I don't want to forget any memory I have of my beloved Chew Chew.

Excellent ideas, the garden and the journal. I have written much and add thoughts all the time as I remember little tidbits as I go along. There are so many wonderful "little" things that can slip by if not written down.
As you were telling about Chewie and the mole I could see it perfectly and then it brought back my own memories of Chancey and her mole digging escapades. Aren't they wonderful, those memories? Just wish we could all have more memories to make. I think you will hear him for a long time to come, I still think I see them coming down the hallway to see where I am. I wish it was true! Wishing you find some peace during this time, Helen

I am so sorry for the loss of your darling Chewie. I smiled when I read your post. Chewie is still with you, all around you. Maybe you do hear him, I heard my beloved Mr. Meowgy. I know it was him. You will never forget your baby and he will watch over you forever. Come here whenever you need to. The people have been such a comfort to me in my sorrow. I wish you peace and comfort. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom
