Lots of Thank Yous!

I've started a hundred times to write a Thank You here and i've never been so paralyzed by the idea of "being at a loss for words" but I have been. There are so many thank yous i'd like to give, for most i'd like to be able to come there in person and give hugs, and i'm so afraid I won't have words to do them justice or I might forget some very special person or moment. Chances are, if you read this, I have something to thank you for

My last few months, dealing with Mollies diagnosis, illness and losing her, have been heart breaking. She was a very special girl to us all and not with us nearly long enough. But, without Pets.ca and all you wonderful people, i'm not sure we would have had such joy in the last few months we spend together and, really, i'm not sure I would have been able to keep a smile on my face for her. Now that she is gone, I know her memories live on with all of you and her life will always be remembered with a smile.

You have all given me the perfect words, the most wonderful advice, caring thoughts, and welcomed me like a life long friend even when i've not been contributing much.

OK... feel my arms reaching out and giving you a huge hug, now, smile, and sigh, knowing you have made more of a difference in a human's and a few doggies and kitties lives than you will ever be fully able to know .

Chase mom

I'm sure i've missed someone :sad:

I hadn't checked my mail much after Molly was gone (we used to walk to the mail together every Saturday) but when I did I couldn't believe what I almost missed there:

(the inscription on the back says "may Molly always be your shadow on the beach")

I think I need to get my road trip in order, to deliver a few hugs personally

Molly (and you) are special to all of us, otter

I think you just did. And very elequently too.

I suspect the scroll saw pic of Molly is either Hazel's work or Meg's. It is one of Meg's dad's if I am right? Very nice work!! It is beautiful!

You are one awesome fuzzbutt mom and we all love you. Molly was your soulmate and she will always live in your heart.

You can rest assured that Molly will always be part of you and some day you will be together again. These furry little creatures give us so much joy and love, I think they do this because their time with us is so short. They need to give us as much as possible to keep us going after they are no longer with us. I have a feeling Molly left you with an unlimited supply of joy and love to remember her by.

THose plaques are beautiful.

14+, Meg, and Megs dad, Those are amazing peices of art. A great tribute.

Otter, you did an amazing job with Molly, She will always be grateful for that.

And I think i speak for all of us when i say, Thank you.. You have helped many of us, by giving advice, and just being here for support.

The "may Molly always be your shadow on the beach" picture actually gave me goose bumps. Amazing peices of work!
