One year ago today a part of me died when I had to say good-bye to my Princess, Nikita.
She was my heart and sole and I loved her more than any words could describe.
Not a day goes by that Nikita is not on my mind. Each and everyday I cry because I miss her and I love her so much.

When my Nikita passed my entire life change. I knew how important she was too me but when she passed reality set in and I realized I would never get to kiss her, hug her and play with her again. Nikita had been there with me through good and bad times and always gave me the unconditional love I needed to get through life. There were things I wish I did different during her life but I told myself I gave her the best life I could and I always made sure she knew that she was loved and spoiled.

Mommy loves you and misses you Nikita, my Princess.

They touch out lives in so many ways.

May you find comfort in your memories of Nikita.

They will not go quietly,
the dogs that shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will.

Always loved, never forgotten..the dogs who have touched our lives so deeply. Nikita's spirit lives on

Cricket, BC, mistress of the household
Dusty, the foundling, being as good as his DNA will allow
Flint, BC,  a sparky pup

Spark. BC - can we PLEASE play ball? 
Jazz (my heartdog - April 1999-April 2010)
Zachary, my little ironman (July 1994-April 2012)
Brandy (a good dog - 1983-1999)
He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds

Those anniversaries are so difficult. It probably feels like just yesterday. Dogs touch our hearts like no human ever could. And sadly, people who've never known the love of one of these magnificent animals will never understand that. Thinking of you.

The dogs that are buried in our hearts never seem far away in spirit.
