Things happen for a reason - Accept it.

Friday, May 10, 2013

Well, I am not entirely sure how I am today.
Today is 2 years since Aspen passed.

emoticon Slept in. That was nice. Not out of bed until 5:30.
emoticon Dog walk
emoticon 5 miles on the treadmill

emoticon Feeling a bit off, thinking only some about Aspen's passing. Decides I could not sit so took the pups for another walk.
emoticon It is really a bit warm for them but we walked extra slow and they will be in for the remainder of the day.

The walk of course had me thing.

is one of the thoughts that came to me. I need to just accept it.

I had Aspen for quite some time after Kanyon's passing. It was time for Kanyon to have his BFF back and for me to let go. Aspen gave me so very much and she was there for the very most difficult times in my life. What more could I ask for.

She lived 4 years longer than then Oncologist expected. The Oncologist had never seen a dog survive the type of cancer she had. We had the best specialist and Aspen never knew she was sick until the very end. Let's not go there.

Now I have Utah. He is a super special emoticon
No doubt about it. He is my boy. Aspen was my girl.

In time I can see him sleeping with me as Aspen did. Currently he still sleeps in his pen.

You gotta admit he could not be any more precious.

He is a big toddler. I am thankful for all I have been blessed with.

Here are some pics.

Aspen as a pup.

Aspen and Kanyon.


And pictured I had taken when I found out that Aspen was no longer in remission.


This is my favorite. This is so us.

Utah and Sierra seem to be close as well. They could grow to be as close as Aspen and Kanyon. As I said, things happen for a reason. I need to accept and be thankful.

Thanks for listening.

    It doesn't seem like it's been two years since Aspen passed, I'm sure it doesn't feel that way. You have a great perspective and someday we'll be back with all of those that we've lost. In the mean time, we can provide love and safety to other members we bring into our families.
    Happy belated Mother's Day.

    You are right- Things do happen for a reason. You do need to accept and be thankful.
    In your own time, my dear. That's what's different for all of us.

    Thank you for sharing your memories and the beautiful pictures!

    I have not seen a dog take the 'airplane' pose since I saw a red and white russian wolfhound do that when I was at a friend's in high school! All the pics are great. So sweet and 'noble' :).

    But in regard to the title, my fat happened for a reason, that does not mean that I have to be accepting of it! LOL

    Have a great day!
