Melting Icecubes!

April 20th, 2016 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Another Ty memory hit me today. He LOVED ice cubes. He was in his glory when I overran my glass at the ice dispenser. He would chase them down and crunch away. Today, I overran my glass. Daryl just sat there and watched. They just started to melt on the floor. Guess that was Ty’s thing. Not sure why that memory took 2 yearS to surface. May be the walk down memory lane I took on all his posts. ( Thanks Sally, for the idea). It is sad , how many memories have started to fade. The Labby Lean, Oh how I long for it now after reading about it, but it had started to fade away. I guess that is a part of healing, but I will admit it makes me feel a tad guilty. I have felt Ty’s presence strongly the last few days, sort of like he is hanging around the house. Weird???? This is the only place I could express that feeling, that presence, even a bit of comfort. TY, Ty

    Not weird. The memories are there. Just need reminding of them every once in awhile. Amazing how each one has their own personality and you just don’t realize it until something reminds you of that special furbaby.
    Ty will make his presence known when you need him.

    Well said Michelle and Donna!

    I think it was Alison who said that, although she was now avle to less, it didn’t mean she loved less. I guess it’s sort of the same way with recalling every little nuance of our dogs. It doesn’t mean we love less, it just means their presence is ALWAYS with us whether we focus on “memories” or not!

    For whatever it’s worth, I jave a hard rime remember anything other than after the amputation. I think in part, it’s because I didn’t have a tavlet before with a gazillion pictures on it like I did after her amputation! I think being on this site certainly keeps the focus on “after amputation” memories.

    Feeling Ty’s presence…especially the last several days…weird???No waaay! Nothi g is weird to this group!! It actually validates what I just said. He’s reminding you he’s right here with you regardless of what you remember or don’t!!

    I was sitting outside today with Myrtle beside me. I reached out and said, “Come closer Hannah, so I can let you.” I think the only other times I’ve called her Hannah is at the Tripawd Pawty. Guess it was one of those “I’m here” signs!

    Hearing how Ty had such a ball chasing ice cubes put a huge smile on my face! Hearing how Daryl just sat there and stared at them made me laugh out loud! 🙂

    Keep posting anything that pops into your mind anytime! This is yet another chapter in Ty’s Blog!

    Love you sweet Lori!

    I LOVE learning more about Ty!!! Never enough Ty Guy stories in my book! 🙂 It’s funny .. .they always seem to come when they know we need them. I wish Shelby would visit more but I think she knows that I’ve got this right now.

    That is so cute about the ice-cubes though ….I like to cool Jasper’s ears in the summer with ice-cubes. Not sure she’s a huge fan. I did it w/Shelby too and I know she didn’t love it.

    Love these stories!!! XOXO
