I can't believe it's been a year. My life seems incomplete without her.

I still sometimes call her in from the yard, or reach for her food bowl, or almost buy her that new toy I know she would love.

I suppose it's the mark of a very good dog that they leave such an emptiness behind. frown

On the other hand, I often do feel her with me. I would swear I just heard her soft 'huff' as she would often do while looking out her window. Her comforting presence lingers.

One year, my girl. But you are still here.

I remember my first year without Cody, it was certainly difficult but I had two other dogs to also care for so they helped me ease my mind.
Almost 5 years later I still mourn for him but usually only around his day of passing. It does get easier to cope though.
I fear too soon I will be going thru this with Isa..


Skye was a beautiful lady smile They definitely leave impressions on our hearts forever <3

Beautiful Skye. I'm so sorry you are missing her. Skye truly was a legend. So much like ve, wisdom, and kindness in her. I am thinking of you as you miss her, and wishing you comfort.
