    Remembering Sparky

    It was one year ago today that Sparky made his journey to Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes it seems that it was so much longer, yet other times it feels like it was just yesterday. But one thing is for certain - I love him and miss him like crazy, and not a day goes by that I don't think of that sweet little guy. He continues to show his presence to me quite often, and in many different ways.

    Two days ago we had a lot of rain, so I couldn't walk Wolfy as often as I usually do, and when it finally stopped raining, we went out for an extra long walk out back. It was early evening - not dark yet, but it was still very overcast. I was walking and thinking of Sparky, since it was coming up on this sad anniversary date, and remembering how he loved to walk and explore this same area. I was really watching the ground around us since I didn't want to encounter any snakes which hang around in that vicinity, when Wolfy stopped to check something out. I stopped to let him do his thing, and when I stopped, I glanced up at the sky - and saw a beautiful rainbow. Yes - I believe it was Sparky's way of letting me know that all is well with him, and that he doesn't want me to be sad. Afterall - he (and Myndi) had a paw in sending Wolfy my way to carry on the Fuzzbutt legacy.

    Hugs and cuddles to you, my sweet Sparky-Doodle. I'm sending enough so that you can share some with Myndi too......

    Sparky wasn't about to forget a visit to you on the day he took his trip to the RB-- that rainbow must have been a sight after all the rain--- we got much the same here...and now we're back in the high
    20's. Just unbelievable.
    No matter how many years pass we don't ever forget out little fur buddies.

    Hugs for you. I'm sure Sparky is looking in on you. Perhaps Emily will let him help her up there.

    Thanks everyone. Sparky was a very special little guy in many different ways. Everybody that met him, loved that little goofball, and he loved just about everybody he met too - people and cats and dogs alike. If there wasn't already a PT Club at RB, I'm pretty certain that Sparky formed one. I'm sure that he found Fritz and all of Sandie's little Fluffs, Alysser's Sassy, and also welcomed Emily with open paws. When he turned on the charm, everyone got drawn in.

    I agree. It feels like the year was too fast in some ways.
    I'm glad you have Wolfy there to keep you company now. I know that Myndi & Sparky are looking down and giving a tail wag of approval, for they do not want their humom to be lonely. ((hugs)) to you.



    I will miss you forever, my sweet Scooter Bug. You were my best friend. 9/21/1995 - 1/23/2010
    Goodbye, Oreo. 4/17/2003 - 9/12/2011. Gone too soon.
