for her new home
So much for best laid plans!
You can read Flossie's "gotcha story" here and get the details about how I saw her across the room as I was signing out of the shelter's office to head home. You can read about the several God-winks that brought us together. Also read here about how I came to open my heart again to bringing another dog into my life after losing Dixie.
The quote below is from a delightful essay from the playwright Eugene O'Neal who wrote so beautifully about losing his beloved dog, Blemie, and how getting another dog helped heal his loss.
The words are so true and surely helped my healing process.
“One last request I earnestly make. I have heard my Mistress say, 'When Blemie dies we must never have another dog. I love him so much I could never love another one.'
Now I would ask her, for love of me, to have another. It would be a poor tribute to my memory never to have a dog again. What I would like to feel is that, having once had me in the family, now she cannot live without a dog!”

I give thanks for her every day!
