This girl did a lot of healing on my heart and doesn't even know it. In 2011 lady, my collie of 12.5 years, passed away in my arms. It was that Christmas after she had passed that I saw a poster of the sweetest collie puppies at the feed store. I went home and immediately told my mom and I had hoped to get one. She broke down into tears immediately at the mention of collie puppies. I realized then that she was not ready for another one in our lives, and neither was I. The next year I was feeling like I may be ready, but not for the sable color my old girl was it had to be something different. I contacted breeders in my state looking with no luck. Nothing felt right. Several months passed when I was cleaning out an old drawer and found that number for the collie puppies over a year previous. I decided I'd give her a call and see. To my dismay, she had one blue Merle collie female left. The people had backed out last minute and she was gorgeous! I told my mom and she didn't break down in tears like she had in the past she just sadly asked if I was ready. I put a lot of thought into it and felt I was. I was however torn between keeping back my baby bunny Max who was so special to me and getting this puppy. I decided I was the best home for Max and I could not part with him and the breeder understood completely. Then Christmas time of 2013, I got an email that I was not expecting. It was that breeder saying she would be having her last litter with that pair of collies and was wondering if I would still like one. We had just gotten case, our Pyrenees puppy and it was difficult to imagine a secknd puppy but I said Yes. Yes,Yes,Yes,Yes,Yes! Patiently We waited for the call on if the puppies had been born and finally they were. I picked Stella out at 1 day old and it was love at first sight. That was the one. Funny thing is I'd wanted a male, not female. Things work in mysterious ways sometimes!

#flashbackfriday to the day We had to say goodbye to my sweet Kitty Bo Bo when Case was only a few months old. Never in a million years did I think I'd lose him in just nine short months later. it has been almost a full 4 months since losing my sweet boy and the pain is still there. I still ache to kiss that big forehead of his before bed, hear his breathing at the base of the bed while I fall asleep and some mornings I still find myself waiting for him to come in when my alarm goes off for his morning snuggles of being half on the bed because he never did figure out how to get his back end up there Lol. Stella still will lay on his grave and look at me Sadly but with rumely now in our lives it has been a little easier to breath, to love and to survive the pain of losing our sweet boy so young and suddenly. This flashback is for my first boy who can never be replaced and will always have a piece of my heart. Still miss him every day. #greatpyrenees #greatpyreneesofthehour #gentlegiantoftheday #missthatface #missingcase #takentoosoon
