Missing and Remembering Our Girl


Posted By on Apr 25, 2019

It’s hard to believe it’s been over THREE months since we said goodbye to our Beauty Queen aka Schatzie, our Carolina Dog. I was chatting with an FB friend a couple of months ago who lost both her dogs in the last couple of years. It seems surreal at times when they first leave us and we begin to realize just how much they brought to and impacted our lives. 🐕 I can’t even begin to tell you all right here and now how much this...

When our Carolina Dog, Schatzie girl passed away last month I felt like the grief was once again going to consume me. I felt this way after Meshach our Dane passed away, our Neo Mastiff Shadrach passed away and my when my only sister passed away.

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...

Meshach A week after Shadrach’s passing, my friend Kim asked me if she could gift me with one of her upcoming litter’s puppies. At that time, she was breeding Great Danes in partnership with her sister. I was stunned and excited, because Great Danes have been my favorite breed of dog since the age of eighteen.
