I have found your Lab!

On this Wednesday, 6 weeks to the day my boy left me, I am missing him so very much. Some days are so much worse than others. I still feel a bit of unreality, like I sometimes get the feeling that he is coming back. I know that is not at all realistic and then I get the punched in the stomach feeling…..he is really gone and it is so permanent. I worked a bit on his scrapbook tonight. Just Geary tonight. Anyway, this is his memory place so, ….Last Summer I got a phone call. A man said” we have found your dog.” The dog fence contained Ty when he wanted to stay in the yard. It was effective, maybe 50 percent of the time. I have them tagged with my name , address and phone! as well as their names. Ty’ s was the keepsake that my daughter wanted along with part of his ashes. We take the dogs a lot when we travel and I was always so afraid one of them would accidentally get loose so I bought the tags. I had gone for a walk and my husband had let Ty out. The rule was that if I was out walking or running, Ty had to be in the house. Somehow, he always seemed to know I was down the road somewhere. I got back to the house and soon after my phone rang. ┬áSomeone had found Ty. He gave detailed directions except that he gave them thinking that I was coming the opposite way. I was like How far did he go? I drove down the road and could not find the house. I turned around as he said he would go into his front yard and wait. I get almost back to my house and there stands this man with my dog. We live back off the road in the woods. He told me that his girlfriend had been walking in the woods and saw him. I guess she thought he was just some loose dog running around. They seemed a bit disappointed to find his tags I think. Turns out Ty was just running around in our woods. They did not really even realize our house was back there. They had moved in fairly recently. So I showed them where our house sat. I at least got to meet my neighbors that day. We all had a big laugh over finding a dog that was not really lost. Life with my Ty Guy was never boring, that is for sure. I am sure the bridge is a livelier place with his presence. Love and miss you so much, Mommy

  1. I’m sooooooo glad you posted in Ty’s Memory Place! I’ve been missng my “Ty fix”!

    I can just kmagine Ty trying to tell those nice neighbors…”Hey…I’m Ty…I live here! Now let me finish my little “adventure” because Ihave to get back in the yard before my Mom gets back! I love that woman! She and I are soulmates!”

    REALLY, REALLY hope you can come to the Virginia event. I think it would help us all on many levels. Maybe you’ll jave a lot of Ty’s scrapbook done then. Yoj would definitely be sharing with people who really understand.

    I’m still having sort of a “memory block” and almost all my images are since the amputation. And there is so many more chapters to her life that I want to bring forth into my heart..

    I LOVE that you are able to bring some of these great stories of Ty to the forum and share with us. It’s such a delight to get to know him…and to have such an “up close and personal” glimpse to the incredible, unbreakable bond you two had.

    Ty loved being loved by you…and loved loving you back!!

    Now, the nly problem with this blog is…..yeah……you guessed it…we need a picute!!

    Sending you much love! And I really hope we can get together in June.

    You and Ty are always in my heart,

    Sally and Happy Hannah

  2. I’ll bet that Ty is keeping all the angels in heaven pretty busy too!

    What a cute story. That is a great way to meet your neighbors, how cool that they cared and called you. I’m sure Ty is watching after them too.

    Can’t wait to see your scrap book.
