The Living Force
She was such a beautiful Sheltie. I've always loved that breed but never had the pleasure of having one. I know you'll surely miss her. I lost my beloved Maine Coon who died when 13. Like Cherie, he was special, completely entertaining and a wonderful companion, so I still miss him after 7 years, but am comforted by the hope that he'll be one of those "treasures in heaven" I've laid up from this life.
Perhaps if we had not looked at time in this linear way, we would not have been suffering so cruelly because of the losses? But how to do this? How to restore any moment? How can we get it all back? I intend to devote my life to that. And get this life again.
On the one hand, I agree with you and I know your signature quote well. I've known that quote for many years before I saw you quote it.I'm not sure we should even want to 'get it all back'; we might end up with something like "Groundhog Day" (the movie). It would almost defeat the purpose of existence. Read my signature quote.
I am very sorry for your loss. Cherie had your love and she is in peace for she knew the meaning of love. Rejoice in the thought of seeing her again where time does not exist and souls meet to greet once again. May she keep growing and learning.Back in 2017, Cherie suffered a sports injury - she dislocated her hip chasing the ball. It was put back in a time or two, but would not stay, so she had to have hip surgery. They shaved her backside to do the surgery and she was so embarrassed that she was getting depressed on top of just trying to recover and learn to walk again. So, I bought her some doggie clothes... a workout suit. I think she actually was proud of it.
