The Snowman and the Snowdog

As a dog lover and a mom, I love when I come across something beautiful- something worth sharing.  I have always enjoyed The Snowman by Raymond Briggs, and last year, by some twist of fate, I came across the movie, The Snowman and the Snowdog, which seemed to be some kind of sequel to The Snowman. Having just lost our Milo that summer, I thought this might be a cute DVD for my son to watch, so I quickly ordered it through Amazon.  Here's the trailer:

Three Years Without You. Three Years...

I haven't written here in a while. I struggle to find the reason for this, but mostly I think it's because everything I write ends up being sad. I didn't plan it that way. The Jersey Doggy was supposed to be a happy place where I shared all of my dog-related thoughts. But I mostly talk about losing you, my Milo. July marked three years that you've been gone. I still can't believe it. Sometimes the words echo in my head: gone, gone, gone. You're gone. But that's not fair to say, really. You're here...but not. You're in that next place, that other place, behind a veil where I can't reach you. I am climbing the staircase to you. Across all time and space, I send my love to you. xoxo

Celebrating Gotcha Day!

Today is Spot's 2nd Gotcha Day! For anyone who doesn't know what a Gotcha Day is, it's the day you celebrate when you first adopted your new companion, or the day when you first 'got them.' Get it? I can't believe we've had Spoteens for two years now! It seems like much longer. In honor of his special Gotcha Day, I am going to share a story with you. You might not believe it. You might think I'm crazy. That's okay. I will share it anyway. Take from it what you will.
