CHERISHING THE MEMORIES

Jill was a private dog. There were time when one would swear that she was human in nature. Jilli had unique traits.

For example, Jill always demanded privacy for a decent bowel movement.

There's Vinkca ground cover on a slope on the south end of the house. While I was trimming it yesterday my thoughts were of Jilli for this area was her choice for privacy.

The ground cover is always high (12 - 24 inches in height) and as you can see, nearly covers a small dog. Perfect privacy for Jilli.

Jilli would delight in going down the bank and choosing the very best spot for her morning duty.


And then she'd go leaps and bounds to come back up the hill.

I'm thankful that I took the time to take a lot of pictures of Jilli doing what she did best albeit a dump on the side of the hill.

Cherishing the memories of a loved one lost is difficult when all you want is your dog back.

"Life is not fair" runs through my mind. "Why my dog?!" is a constant in my every day thinking.

It's been 2 1/2 months since her untimely passing. Life without my dog still stings.

One day there will be another dog in my life. She'll have unique qualities But there will never be another Jilli. Never.

It is 5 months since my brother passed and I still ask why. I find odd little things reminding me of him and I can now think of him with a smile. I would give anything to have him back but I cherish the memories I do have of him and the times we spent together. I am blessed to have had him in my life.

I hope it will be that way for you and Jilli.

Bob,

Be thankful you have closure. I have a pet I had to give up. Knowing he is alive but just not being able to see him. I wonder if he still remembers us.
