Bittersweet Memory

There is no night without a dawning
No winter without a spring
And beyond the dark horizon
Our hearts will once more sing…
For those who leave us for a while
Have only gone away
Out of a restless, care worn world
Into a brighter day.~ Helen Steiner Rice, American writer, inspirational and Christian poetry

Dallas, September 2016

This would have been Dallas’s 16th birthday (2006-2020). Rest well, my Sheltie angel!

  1. Dearest Debbie, having known you for many years, I share in your bittersweet memories of Dallas.

    As I’ve said many times, he had the sweetest eyes and face.

    Sending you love and hugs, my friend!

    ((((((((((((((( XXXX ))))))))))))

    • Thank you, Ron, for understanding. He really did have a sweet expression, and, even though I miss him still, I find I can be grateful for the years we shared. Hope your week is wonderful — did you get some of that heavy rain? xx

  2. I’m so sorry…grief is the price we pay for love. It’s worth it, but that sure doesn’t make it easy. I hope your memories are a comfort, and that Monkey is a welcome distraction!

    • “Grief is the price we pay for love.” So very true, Ann. Dallas was my “soul-dog,” and I’ll always treasure what we shared. Monkey has the potential for being a good dog, but he’s just a LOT of puppy right now, ha!

  3. (((Hugs))) I still fondly remember our Sheltie, Skipper, even though he’s been gone for over forty years. It’s good you have so many sweet warm memories of Dallas to comfort you as time goes by. Bittersweet, indeed. ❤️
