My Little Brown Wolf

I often called Leelee my little brown wolf.  One of my animal spirits is a wolf.  Since Leelee's passing, I have been dreaming of a wolf.

  These photos were taking the first day we got Leelee the Contented Dachshund.

Leelee My Little Brown Wolf

Wolves are pack animals.  Wolves are very protective of their pack.  Although Leelee was a little dog, she was a big wolf in a little dog's body.   She was very protective of my family.

Leelee Had the Heart of a Wolf

Back in May, the vet told me Leelee had cancer.  After doing tests on Leelee, they told me there wasn't anything they could really do to help Leelee. Most little dogs that have cancer only last a couple months, at the most.  Leelee was a fighter and didn't want to leave her happy home.  Leelee somehow made it ten months.  Leelee fought it until she just couldn't fight anymore.

The last two month of Leelee's life were the biggest battle.  She did not suffer.  According to the vet, Leelee was not in pain.  She was taking meds to help her. But, she needed lots of care. I made a promise to Leelee when I adopted her, that I would take care of her until the end.  That is what I did.

Leelee Died an Honorable Wolf Death

Leelee died an honorable wolf death.  They say death comes with the full moon.  So I know with the full moon in March Leelee would be leaving us.  I just did not realize it would be the first day of the full moon.

                                   Leelee still making me laugh, even at the end

Leelee the contented dachshund left this world on Saturday, March 11th at 10:15.  She was laying on me.  She looked up at me with a big smile on her face.  It was almost like she was saying thank-you, I love you but, I have to say good-bye. 

Leelee fought a great fight, even the vet had no idea how she made it as long as she did. Leelee's light went out because there just was no more wax to burn.  The last two weeks of her life she lived on pure love.  Leelee the contented dachshund will be greatly missed.

Sending Happy Anniversary Wishes to Mom and Dad in Heaven

Sending Happy Anniversary Wishes to Mom and Dad in Heaven

             Hank, Barbra, mom's best friend, and mom's brother Edward

Sending Happy Anniversary wishes to my mom and dad in Heaven.  March 20th, the first of spring also marks Barbra and Hank Fluharty's wedding Anniversary.  I remember my dad telling me that it snowed when they got married.  It did not snow a lot just a little bit.  They took it snowing to mean that their relatives that had passed were sending them a sign that they were happy for the two of them.

Barbra and Hank Fluharty loved each other very much.  They belonged together.  They had 35 wonderful years together before my father passed away.  You can feel their love in the photos below.

          Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad in Heaven

If I Saw You in Heaven?

Some people say that you are in your thirties when you are in Heaven. You are in your thirties because you are not too young or too old. 
The photo above is a photo of my grandfather, grandmother, great- grandfather and great aunt. My grandfather is 30 in this picture. 
 I was very close to my grandfather when he was alive. I have found myself staring at this photo wanting to implant my grandfather's face into my brain. I want to know who he is in Heaven.  
My grandfather has been gone for over twenty years and,  I still miss him with all of my heart.  I  know he watches over me. I pray that I will meet my beloved grandfather again.
