My dryer stash on your 1 year Ampuversary

Ty waiting for chair 2 A year ago today, I dropped you off at the vet with high hopes for many, many months together. It wound up being measured in weeks rather than months, but I learned a lot form you in that short time. Things like, small things are really big things, A chair to snuggle into at night, an empty yogurt container, a full trash can and companionship. That is what you loved the most. Even when you were so sick, you could barely stand, your tail went a mile a minute when I walked into the room. I was remembering your Summer habit the other day. Being all black, you were not a fan of the heat. From puppyhood on, you would plop your body down right on top of the AC vent. Made the room a bit warmer, but I never minded. I miss you my boy. It is looking as if one of our boarder’s horses may be euthanized today. I need to go out there, but I am procrastinating. It is bringing some bad memories back. I am feeling blah. I just loaded the dryer and when I turned it on, I heard the familiar clanging of change. I open it and fish around, 2 pennies and a dime. Turn it on again, clang, clang, fish some more, 2 pennies, 1 dime, repeat, 2 dimes 1 penny, last time 1 dime and 3 pennies. I need to think that it is you, telling me that you are ok and still with me. 3 Tripawd finds and the last was 4. You are running on 4 today. Love and miss you so much My TY Guy.

  2. Ahhhh…Ty! Sending mommy pennies and dimes in the dryer! Good job! I know you guys are having a blast over the bridge… I know Shelby must be all up in your face! 🙂

    Hugs and love,

  3. Dear Sweet Lori, Thanks you for sharing your memories and lovely thoughts on TyGuy today. I know its so nard and you..and we…miss him terribly.

    Clearly though, he is showing you in so many ways he IS still with you in energy form! I love how he gave you such a uniquely creative message with the coins and the numbers, knowing you would figure out his meaning.

    And Ty will be there to help the horse cross over. He will escort him to the Bridge and he will run by his side as he shows him around all the sunny meadows and cool shade trees.

    The memory you shared of him wagging happily when he saw you, even though he didn’t feel like getting up….such a great visual! He was showing yoi, that in spite of his health challenges, he was still relishing in the joy of just being with you!

    I love the picture you posted today! Those soulful eyes of his just melt my heart every time!

    Sending lots of love and hugs always…

  4. Awww. Today I say FOUR is the lucky number, and that’s ’cause Ty is absolutely sending you a sign that he his happy and whole again and running free in pure joy.

    A year ago already, I can’t believe it. But I’m so impressed at how strong you sound, how clearly you see all those things that your difficult journey with Ty taught you. You’ve turned grief into knowledge, what a courageous thing to do! Nobody ever wants that kind of education but when we do get it, it changes our world and makes us stronger people who are better connected to our animals than ever before. It’s that connection that bonds you to Ty for all time, no matter how many anniversaries happen.

    Lots of hugs coming your way.

  5. I remember when you first posted about Ty. It was just after I lost my Jake and I was cheering for him so much. In my grief, I used to get on here and read about Hannah, Shelby, Polly (it gave me so much just to see not everyone was losing the fight) and Ty was the first amputation I saw after my Jake passed. I so wanted him to kick cancers ass. Those pennies and dimes, they were all from Ty. I think Ty was saying, I’m ok mom!, I’m really ok mom!, I’m REALLY ok mom! I can see Ty sending the pennies, and Jake, Hannah, Shelby and Polly all sitting around going “do it again!”. 🙂
    It’s going to be a long couple of months here, so many firsts for all of us. Sending many HUGS to you today.
