I just spoke with one of my best friends and she told me an amazing story I wanted to share with my HW family.  Her husband sadly passed away two years ago on his birthday from a heart attack as he was unwrapping presents.  It was a huge shock for everyone. None more so than for his wife.  My friend has since lost her beloved 15 year old dog as well.  She decided to get a new pet and decided to visit some breeders.
She saw a breeder couple (of German Shephards) who were called Peta and John.  Her husband's name was Peter John. The puppy they had was born on the exact day and time of her husband's death.  Imagine.  She has adopted this puupy and his half sitster (18 months old) and named him PJ. What the chances of this not being especially made for her to love and move on? I am amazed at the beauty life presents us with in the darkest of times.
If you have an amazing story please share it with us so we can feel that beauty and hope. :-)

... Oh... I had an amazing story, but... err... it's not very beautiful (it's pretty gross, actually), so... I'm just going to leave it out.


One time, a deer got so close to me, I was actually staring it in the face. I couldn't believe it got so close. Man, I had to move away from it... *Maybe animals like me or something... Birds and squirrels have a tendency to get really close to me, too... Never actually getting on me or anything. Just really close... like close enough to touch*

Same thing with insects, too... I have a real problem with bees. I've only gotten stung once in my life (and that's when I was a little kid and I was provoking the bee)... but... Seems like they can't get enough of me. They'll land on me... and just sit there forever and ever. //@.@\\'... What do they think I am? Some kind of flower? Sheesh.... //^_^\\'
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I had a cat (Percy) a few years ago whom I absolutely adored, more so than any creature I've ever known. He developed a terminal illness, and despite special care, I had to put him down. The vet even came to the house to perform the euthanasia with our favorite vet technician.

Anyhow, Percy was an avid little predator, always bringing me lots of little, um, gifts. Two mornings after he died, I found a dead mole on the third step up on my back porch, higher than it could have climbed on its own, and in the "gift" position. I truly believe that Percy brought it or inspired a neighborhood cat to do it so that I would know that's he's okay.

It made me feel much better, even though I missed him terribly.

Meg, I hope your friend gets lots of love and comfort from her PJ.

Celey, my boyfriend is the same...animals just LOVE him.  Any pet, flea etc is all over him.  You must be a gentle soul like him.

Kitt, you take the mush to bed hon!

Percy - that is a beautiful story.  I lost my beloved Tilda about 9 months ago now (blue burmese) and I sometimes hear her little footsteps down the hall...
