I just looked at the last message I posted on this blog, and it was a holiday card! Wow, time flies when you have a puppy. Many people have written to ask if everything is OK. The short answer is: Yes. Kanga is doing extraordinarily well, which is to say that she is full of spunk and personality and healthy and thriving. I couldn't be more in love with her. And yet ... ...she is a completely different dog than Maui. Now, I know many of you are chuckling and thinking "Well, of course she is." But others of you who have recently lost your "heart dog" - which Maui was to me - will understand how just plain disconcerting it can be to love a dog and think of her as "yours" but also think "she's not really my dog." Maybe that doesn't make sense. Suffice to say that I adore Kanga and also have found little pockets of grief over the loss of Maui. Molly says this is to be expected, and I know she is right. And Kanga is totally happy to just be her own doggy self. I can tell that she's in this for the long haul and perfectly happy. I have a little short video of her and I'd love to get your thoughts below.

Next week I'm going to send some footage of her doing her FAVORITE thing ... running on the beach with Dad. Until then, be well and take good care of yourself and your dog(s)!

Because I work in rescue, I spend time with a lot of dogs. At the moment there are 4 dogs and 4 cats at our house. You'd think I wouldn't get as attached to any one dog as you were to Maui, but it's not true. As others have mentioned, each is an individual, and a piece of you goes with each one that dies. None can be replaced, but all can be enjoyed for whom they are, and they all live in our memories forever. I really feel sorry for people who lose a cherished canine or feline friend and swear off pets because the loss was too painful. They're closing themselves off from one of the best parts of life.

Give Kanga a hug for me!

Hi -
Very nice.
I truly understand the emotions you are going through since Maui's loss. You will have a cherished moments with Kanga as well.

She is a very cute puppy and yes has "her own personality". John and I have a snoodle that is so "perfect" for us that even though we want another dog we hesitate to add any right now. We have the love but also after having "big" dogs and now having our little girl we are sooooo spoiled by her. We will see. I can feel your pain still over Maui and I think she would be happy that you have Kanga in your lives...... she would want the companionship and love that you all have............. God Bless, Love, Mary Kay and Lydia :)

I totally understant your comment about "your" Dog and my "Heart Dog". I feel the same way about Bruiser, I got another Chihuahua and have 2 other dogs but is not the same. No one can take Bruiser place in my heart. God Bless you have so much love to give.

Thanks for your comments. It is great to get so much positive feedback here. I am delighted to be posting again to IRememberLove. Kanga wants me to take her out for a walk. We will get some new videos up soon.

I was very happy to read about Kanga and also watch the video of Kanga and her ball and many other toys! Next Sunday I'm having a Birthday Party for Louie III (my standard poodle) who will be 15. I know how difficult it is to lose a doggie, we lost our black lab Buster last May. We adopted a new doggie the first of this year - little Tillie, so we're back to being a family of 5. Can't wait to see you all on the BEACH!
