i remember

Rain fell gently outside when we read the news.

mom... will i ever see twix again? i didn't even get to say goodbye.

Well babydog.  I think so.

and maggie? and jeeves?

Yes, babydog.  You will see them, too.  But hopefully, that won't be for a very very very long time.

but if i won't see them for a very very very long time, how can i make sure i will still know them when i see them?

Well babydog, I suppose you'll have to find a way to keep them in your heart and  remember all of them.

oooooh...... you know,  teacher said if we say things out loud it will help us remember.  do you think that might work, mom?

Why yes, baby dog, I think that's a very good start.

i remember digger and kep and padua. and i remember jeeves.  and  i remember maggie  and  miss edith and allie and lulu's dad mister tom. and i remember twix

Amen, here too. I have losted a play date friend Gypsy and I remember Gypsy. Mommy had doggies before me Sparky, Pepper, and then the one right before me Deon. She says she remembers them all, too. She also says that one day I will have to remember my big brother Charlie. Cause, he is much older than me. But, I don't wants to think about that yet. Who else would I bark at squirrels with and who else would let me lick their bowl after the canned pumpkin dessert. I thinks me and my big brother will be together fur ever. Sasha.

This is just too sad for me to comment much on right now. I remember all my beloved dachsies!

Oh, you and your mom are the best. We were so sad about Twix, too.
Jeeves mom here, I also love all the pups your mom named. Ike, Otto, and Linus's mom told me to come here right away and I'm so glad I did. We will add to the remembering out loud some other dogs we've known and love-- Simon, Romeo, Lucy, Susu, LeeLu, Autumn...
Today is also a day that mom remembers a guy I never met, Mike. He was her life partner and he crossed the human bridge 13 years ago today.
So you see, it is so very, very special that you knew to post this today, Baxter.
We love you lots!
Melinda, Teagan and, from on high, Jeeves

Another little sausage gone, it's just too hard to take sometimes. After I read about your "pact" w/ Baxter I immediately made one with Jasper, and I also sing "You Are My Sunshine" to him everyday.

Great remembrance post:)

Joey and Maggie said...

Oh, we shouldn't have read this at work. :(

Love it.

I remember them all. Even the ones I never get to meet but I see everyday online.

So happy to see a note from Maggie's Dad. We all have been sooooooo worried. It is just so darn hard. It will get better, it will get better, it will get better.
Baxter you little sweetie. We all love you. All the little Dachsies out there.
There is a little male longhair here in my apt. that needs a home. I tried but Ali said no. She has been Queen for 17 years so I must respect her wishes. Don't leave little girl please.


Elizabeth said...

Okay, all this death, whether canine or human needs to stop right now!

I will hug Lulu extra hard when I get home.

Jane said...
