Thanks for the kind words and that cute poem from basset lover. I'm looking forward to the day when I can get a second dog and make them just as happy. I still haven't gotten over Angel, but I know she is happy now, and crying over her isn't going to bring her back. I'm just trying to move forward, do things to get my mind off of the sad things in life. My parents are getting me involved in more stuff since i started homeschooling last year. I am going to start ice skating again, I already do horse backriding twice a week, I am doing horse shows now, and I am going to try and help out at an animal shelter. I don't know if the animal shelter will let me help or not, I am 14 and maybe they will consider it. I'm not trying to forget Angel, i'm just trying to stop being sad over her, I have tons of pictures frames and blanket and scrapbooks of her all over my room. It's like an Angel heaven in here LOL I definatly want to be reminded of her sweet puppy face everyday.
I am happy to hear that you liked the poem. I got it from the website of a lady that recently lost one of the Labrador Retrievers that I raised. She too, was deeply saddened when she lost Shilo. She told me that if there was a way to clone him, she would have done it in a heartbeat.
I wrote to her last night and when she wrote back, she gave me her website, which is dedicated to her love of the Labrador Retrievers. I found that poem and wanted to share it with you.
I lost my first Lab in 1995, a year after my own Dad had passed on. I think I mourned just as much, if not more for my dog, as I did for my Dad.
My first Blondie had slept next to or in my bed for 15 years. She would run in her sleep, actually she laid there and her legs would run, sometimes she would give her little puppy barks too, like talking in her sleep. That dog was my constant companion, if I went somewhere in the car, Blondie was with. If I was outside with the horses or the other animals, she was by my side. She'd even come along when I went horseback riding. It hurt so much to lose her, it was really like losing a loved member of the family, so I know what you are going through.
Just cherish the memories and give thanks to God for sharing her with you for all those years. You will meet her again, someday and until then, a little star is watching over you now.
Thanks basset, I know she is watching over me :) Angel was a saint :) She is missed so much, and has done so much for her family. She will always be part of the family. Angel had sooooooooooooooo many nicknames, we used to call her doodle bop, cutie patootie, poodle pup, and more, she had like 25 nicknames :) My grandma called Angel her grandogster :) Angel was special to even all our relatives. They all cried when they got the news about Angel. Angel had everybody loving her!

Thank you everyone, I used to cry about her everyday for hours, but now if i see something of hers, it gets to me, but i not for very long. I am actually doing ok, as much as i'd rather have her here, i just keep telling myself she is much happier where ever she is. It was so sad to see her get so sick at such a young age, she had just turned seven in november of 2007. I thought she was eight, but i was wrong, we got her in 2000. She was such a great dog, i'm really going to miss life without her. I have been looking in to a new dog, and maybe by the end of may or later, i might have a new puppy from a new litter. I have had plenty of things going on lately to get her off my mind, i did a cross country horse show today, and fell off once, then i almost fell off, but i was hanging on to the saddle, with one leg on the other side, my horse instructor grabbed the horse and pushed me back up in the saddle. So if my instuructor wasn't their, i would have fallen LOL. The horse dragged me for a while when i fell, LOL my spur got caught in the iron, and the horse stepped on my leg, but i'm fine. I had mud all over my new show shirt, and the real horse show is tommorow. Right now i just got home, i hadn't eaten anything all day, from 6:00am-4:47pm. We jumped like 30 jumps and then we jumped oxers jumped over ditches, and galloped down hills and into the woods it was a ton of fun. I was riding this tiny icelandic pony, she was a complete slow poke, i was prepared though, i had spurs and a crop with me, so i had her going pretty fast. We'll enough about horses LOL I could go on and on all day, thank you for your kind words. I'm doing ok, i have a show to look forward to tommorow on a slow poke of a pony, i will do dressage test, show jumping 3"0" and then cross country. For the cross country we have to memorize 20 jumps, not sure how that works, but i hope i don't miss a jump or forget the whole course. Pressures on me, and the other riders!!!!!! Have a good week everyone, i won't be on for a couple days or a week, i have a busy week ahead of me full of horses!
