Yesterday morning on my walk with my Carolina Dog, Schatzie, I was deep in thought and prayer. I happened to glance to my left and the hill in the photo was my view…the same one my sweet Meshach (Great Dane in photo) used to dash up with sheer, unbridled delight.
I had to squat down and simply allow the sorrow of his loss to wash over me. My sweet girl Schatzie sat by me with my arm about her, as I allowed myself to embrace the entire scene and moment remembering.
It has been almost 4 years ago now that we lost Meshach. A tragic loss, yet his short life forever altered my own.
No matter who we have lost, animal and human, in war or otherwise we can remember them all and hold them close in our hearts always. This year on that particular day, my heart was remembering this very special dog, Meshach.
Maybe, some day I’ll be able to tell the entire story that encompassed everything I learned from him.
Below is a recent podcast I did to honor some of these special dogs that have played such a critical role in my own life journey – past and present:
Until next time…
Have a positively tail waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day!
