Thank you, Pam, for your kindness. It means so much.
I loved the card, btw...that graphic of the bunny was so adorable, I snagged it with my FLIP video. It's blurry, but I can still make it out.
Yeah, the lot of them sure didn't have good luck with their rear ends. Our vet said hip displaysia and it's inherent associations are very common in larger dogs. However, I am not a small dog person, so I was kind of destined to have to deal with this sort of thing with them.
Still looking for that idea where I put it...what a dummy! *forehead smack*

Well I finally found my poem, but it's not as good as I remember it. Going to give it a brief rewrite before I post it.
Thanks again for all the kind wishes. This is the family I can always bring my pet worries and sorrows to and you all understand. It is a great comfort.

I did go on my walk today. It was so strange to do without either dog. (Like an idiot I forgot my camera, so I have no pix to post of the field and trail in snow for you, sorry!) And the scary part was going past this one house where there's a yard full of mushing dogs that I never know when the three guard dogs they have there will be running free or not. But I managed to get by both ways unscathed.

It's going to be tough feeling safe without that big boy by my side.

I've been out of town for two weeks, and didn't see this until now. I"m so sorry Mimzmum. How painful things have been for you. HUGS.

Shadow was such a beautiful beautiful dog and loved member of your family. What a wonderful gift to have had and I hope soon the love and memories will help heal and fill the hole that has been left behind.

Sending Peace and Healing Vibes to you and your family.

Well, it's been over a month now. And to date I've only dreamed of Shadow twice. Once about a week or two after his death, and when I woke up from it I felt like he was saying goodbye. And last night. He was at the bottom of a hill in the shade of a willow tree on a chain and I went to throw my arms around him and hug him and give belly rubs. He was his old self again, young, happy, full of energy. His body was shining with rainbow light. I wanted to take him with me, but when I went back for him I woke up.

I've tried to rewrite his poem, but I simply can't. Since losing him, I feel less connected with this world; if it weren't for the bunnies and my cats, I would have a harder time getting up in the morning, if at all. I often feel that he is calling me from the other side, waiting for me to come home.

So for now, since I don't have his memorial video made (or even started outside of gathering all his pictures) I'm just going to post the poem. It needs to be included in his memorial, before too much time elapses.

So here we go....


I remember when I first heard of you.
A shadow of something I thought I knew,

I remember when I first saw you,
Dragging your past down the street.
A future promise on a string,

I waited for you to notice me,
But other love was in your life then,
And you flew to it.
You flew....

I was lucky to catch a glimpse of my Shadow.

I waited for your promise to be fulfilled,
It seemed like forever.
And even when I had it in my hands,
It was still not mine.

So slowly,
You realized I was the light to cast you,
And you fell in behind,

Yet mostly you went before me,
Never walking.
Never running.

I can see you floating over the fields,
The shine from your eyes is blinding,
And with you I am not afraid anymore.

For so long you have been my Shadow.
You kept the darkness away,
And it is I who pale beside you

Someday you will go before me,
One last time
Back to Eden.
You will fly
To a new place to shine,
And I'll be alone here
In the dark.

But I know you are watching over me,
As you have done for so many years.
And one day we'll fly together.
I expect you to be waiting,
And fly to me
When you see me coming.

Fly to me
And under the Eternal Sun,
Be my Shadow

You'll notice the time of writing was over a year ago. This was while he was recuperating at the vet's after his GDV surgery. I was totally unsure that he would come home at all, so I wrote this. However, it still applies.

I miss you boy. Still. Always.

Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.
