Hi guys –

I’m kind of at a loss for words.

The last 4 days have been so awful. I keep waiting for her. Every time Mom comes home, I look out the window to see if she’s going to open the doors to the backseat of the car. When I go outside, I check the gate. Mom and Dad keep telling me she’s not coming back though.

The other day, Mom found a rose petal that was in the shape of a heart. She said Khia sent it to us.

I like to lay in her spot in the yard when I go outside.

I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping. I’m still eating and drinking. I play a little. Mostly, I just sleep.

Yesterday was Franklin’s 4th birthday. The only way to celebrate was by a game of chase.

I don’t think she saw the humor in it. I know Mom didn’t.

Then, Mom took me inside and I did something I swore I would never do – I played fetch. For 5 minutes! It made Mom smile so I just kept doing it. I’ll admit, it was a little bit fun. I bet Khia was smiling, watching me go!

We took this picture for you guys:

Mom said, “Noodle, it’s time to put a smile on so our friends know we’re okay!” And smile we did.

I have been told an adventure is in place for Saturday. I’ll be sure to fill you in as soon as I know more.

    What a great picture, Noodle! So fun to see 🙂 And I’m glad you played fetch with your Mom. Isn’t it fun when you try something you didn’t really want to do, only to learn you kind of like it?

  3. It’s good to see you smiling again. You know what else is fun? Playing catch with the real little tennis balls that are made just for dogs. You know what else is fun? Not catching it on purpose and watching your mom play fetch. 🙂

    It looks like you and your Momma are taking good care of each other….that is the best medicine for both of you, and exactly what Khia would want for you. Keep smiling as much as you can!

    Noodle,
    You, mom and the rest of your family have been on my mind. It was good to see your post, and photos. I was wondering how you all were doing. Giving you a cuddle and looking forward to reading about your Saturday adventure.

    Yay for smiling! You both look super cute. Adventure is a great idea. So is fetch, although that game confuses the heck out of me…. But staying busy and keeping in the routine always feels good.

    Love and licks,

    • *blush* Thanks, Cupcake! Fetch is pretty much ridiculous but Mom enjoys it for some reason. We’ve added new things to my routine – special Noodle/mom things. I’ll tell you more soon!

      Thanks to both you and your mom for all of the kind messages you have sent ❤

      It has been a rough time but things are starting to even out. Moments like the ones with the rose petal bring smiles and tears but we are thankful to have them. Knowing that she’s watching us makes the pain a tiny bit more bearable. Lots of love ❤ ❤ ❤

        Sweeties we hope those memories are always full of love and fondness..today we finished setting our veggie garden up..it will be named after two sweet kitties we lost…Simba who was cruely shot and Merlin who we lost to FIV…the pain is still there but i remember them loving to lie and spend time with ,e in the veggie garden where we lived…so indeed it becomes more bearable..lots of love to you all Fozziemum ❤ ❤

      • Shot?! That’s awful! Who would do such a terrible thing?! FIV is so very sad. We are sorry that you’ve had to go through that pain. Especially half of which was totally preventable and unnecessary. I think they will love the new garden. You’ll feel them there ever time you’re out there.

        I do not know..he made it home but was dead before we found him…that was in a september and in the december we had to let Merlin go…he caught it off a feral that attacked him in our yard 5 years prior.We waited a year and we could not live in the street anymore knowing some evil creep was a killer..we sold the house moved 3 hours away to here..when we first looked at this house we knew..and that night i had a dream Simba(who had been shot) was running around here his full tail (he lost the end to a dog attack) he was happy and darting everywhere..i have never dreamt of any of our sweeties we had lost..so we knew he was already here and waiting…and i researched and found the name Samovila which was a Russian fayre who was the protectress of all woodland creatures and this we named our property..i know they will be with me in the garden just as i know your babies are with you ❤ ❤

      • Wow… Crazy how a dreams work. They can provide such comfort. I’m not going to lie, I hope Simba haunts the person who shot him. Maybe gives ankle bites. People can be so cruel.

  18. Making your mama smile was something that Khia would have approved. Eventually those external smiles will caress and engulf your aching hearts. Hope you guys can stay focused on all the tender memories of your fur-iend more so than the pain of the loss. Hugs and puppy kisses from me and Sam. ❤

  19. Noodle it sounds like you’re doing the best you can do carry on little guy and OF COURSE Khia got a very big smile when she saw you and your Mom playing…..the more smiles you do, the fewer “sads” you will have. I promise.

    Sending hugs, Sammy and Mom Pam

    • I hope she did smile because that is the silliest game in the world. So ridiculous!

      “Sads” are the worst and I don’t want to have anymore.With friends like you, your mom, and everyone else we have met through this blog, the “sads” are indeed fewer. Thank you for your support, Sammy and Pam. We couldn’t have gotten through this without the likes of you ❤

    • Hi Dennis the Viszla dog. I’m sorry to hear about Tucker. It IS hard losing your best friend. Everything is very different. I think I already had that OCD before khia left. Mom says it’s from the trauma of living on the street. It was really bad for the 1st 2 days khia was gone. I even chewed myself until i bled. I’m starting to do better though. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice note.
