The pick-up game with Fiona--2 year Anniversary

 I never really got a chance to grieve Fiona.  Zappa took over her blanket and most of my thoughts, getting him through that time period of losing the three dogs.  So, now with the blanket free I've begun the process of sadness for my little girl.  Chance and Brut may have been my heart dogs, but Fiona was my love.  She was the one who went out of her way to cheer me up.  Fiona was so full of love, sweetness, and affection.  She had no problem expressing her love.  She was precious that way.  

I'd been teaching Fiona to pick up toys and other items off the ground, then she would immediately drop them.  I tried everything to get her to hold the item in her mouth for at least a second more with the hopes that she would drop it in my hand or lap.  She was way too excited to hang on to the item.  She wanted that treat.  lol  So, one day I'm having a tough day and Fiona just starts picking up and dropping items on the floor.  It was so darn cute and she had me laughing in no time.  

Fiona was definitely special.  So sweet and loveable.  She had a way of touching my spirit when I needed it most.  And every time in between.  

To my girl, 

I can't believe it has been two years since we played our game.  Or saw your smile.  Or how you shook your booty when you were excited.  Two years...and not a day goes by that I don't think of you.

I love you, Fiona. ♥

I know how it feels when these bittersweet anniversaries come around. For me, it seems to almost be a daily thing -- a song, a memory on facebook, a random photo, whatever it is, I'm reminded that my broken heart will never ever be mended. 💔

PS: Thank you for your friendship, and always kind comments and for cheering us on. I've sent you a 'friend request' on FB - I'll look forward to keeping up with you there, and getting to know you better too! THANKS!!!

Oh, this just tugs at my heart. Time is so surreal...how can it be that a chunk of time without out beloved pups has gone by? So many years - a lifetime - with them, and then in a blink, it's all over. We were so blessed, you and I, for having such amazing furry best friends and all them memories that go with them to last us for always. Sending big hugs your way.... xo

Aww, I’m so sorry! Are you down to just one dog now?

We had Zappa for a couple of years after Chance, Fiona and Blaze died. Zappa died this year in February. So now we just have our two cats.
